This month I am planning on joining the #asianreadathon which is run by Readwithcindy.
I have also picked some other books to read.
I have a very large TBR and do not expect to read them all (as always), they are just a great starting point – I do consider myself a emotion reader.
I aim on prioritising the books for the Asian Readathon.
The Asian Readathon Prompts
1) Read any book by an Asian author.
2) Read a book featuring an Asian character or written by an Asian author who you can relate to.
Ex: If you’re an immigrant you can read about an immigrant character; if you’re a woman you can read a book by another woman; etc.
3) Read a book featuring an Asian character or written by an Asian author who is different from you.
Ex: If you’re straight you can read about a queer character; if you’re Japanese you can read a book by a Vietnamese author; etc.
4) Read a book recommended by an Asian.
Ex: Watch an Asian booktuber’s recommendations video; ask your Asian friend what book best represents them; have an Asian friend choose between 2 books on your TBR; etc.
5) OPTIONAL: Read “Little Fires Everywhere” by Celeste Ng and participate in the Little Fires Readalong and the Little Fires Watchalong
