This month, I’m really excited to be co-hosting an AMAZING reading challenge, created by Shenwei @ Reading (AS)(I)AN (AM)ERICA. The hosts are a group of Asian bloggers, and we’ve created an initiative to support Asian authors and their books in May.
One of the aspects of this initiative involves us sharing various Asian-themed blog posts, and I have a few coming up that I’m really excited to share – my recommended ownvoices historical fiction books, a Diversity Spotlight Thursday focusing on Asian authors, and hopefully an interview later in the month with an author I really admire.
Another part involves the reading challenge below:
Realistically, I know I’m unlikely to be able to complete a whole line during this hectic month, but I’ve still planned a TBR out, and would love to complete the whole board at some point in the year. For now, I’m aiming for the diagonal from SE Asian MC to Multiracial/Multi-ethnic Asian MC.
- South-East Asian MC: The Other Shore by Hoa Pham
- Queer romance with Asian MC: a few options for this:
- Free space: An Artist of the Floating World by Kazuo Ishiguro
- Religious Asian MC: God Smites and Other Muslim Girl Problems by Ishara Deen
- Multiracial/multi-ethnic Asian MC: The Girl from Everywhere by Heidi Heilig
Are you participating in #AsianLitBingo? What’s on your TBR?
