Asian Readathon + Wyrd and Wonder TBR

untitled design

I didn’t participate in this readathon hosted by Cindy @ Read with Cindy last year but I have been reading a lot more Asian authors since 2019 and thought it would be perfect to take part in it this time around. And below are the list of books I’m planning to read:

Read any book by an Asian author

I have an ARC of this and have just been waiting for the perfect time to read it.

Read a book featuring an Asian character or written by an Asian author who you can relate to

Sandhya is one author I relate to the most, and Aru Shah is super special for me because I adore the Mahabharata – so hopefully I’ll read one among these two for this prompt.

Read a book featuring an Asian character or written by an Asian author who is different from you

I never thought I would ever read such hard core sci-fi novels but The Three-Body Problem is a BOTM pick for one of my online book clubs and I’m buddy reading Ninefox Gambit with my dear friend Dini, so the only hope is that I’ll actually understand and enjoy them.

This is actually the oldest book on my TBR and I have been determined to read it this year, so I’m glad that another of my book clubs chose it for our May BOTM. I do find it quite intimidating but maybe this is the time I’ll finally read it.

Wyrd and Wonder hosted by Imryl, Lisa and Jorie is a month long extravaganza dedicated to all things fantasy and I’m quite excited to participate in it for the first time. While I have not made any plans for what I’ll be posting, I’m hopeful that there’ll be atleast one favorite fantasy reads post as well as a related tag coming soon. But other than that, I’m just excited to read as many fantasy books as I can and some of them are as below…

I’m obviously gonna repeat these books from Asian Readathon for this one as well and I think it’s cool that I can. Other than that, I have four more I hope to read but I don’t know how far I will succeed in my plans.


Are you participating in any of these two readathons? What books are you planning to read? Have you already read any of the books on my TBR? Let me know all your thoughts in the comments below…

    1. Thank you Caitlin. Readathons are definitely what I need these days to focus on reading .

    1. Readathons are basically like thematic reading events hosted by bloggers. Because May is Asian Heritage Month, Cindy is hosting the Asian readathon, so anyone who is interested in participating can choose the books that they want to read for the readathon. And to help us choose the books, Cindy has created four different prompts and I have chosen books to read for each of them.
      These readathons are basically to meet more similar minded bloggers and make friends. If you participate in one and follow the hashtag on twitter, you’ll meet so many others who are also participating and you can chat will all of them. And ofcourse you’ll get loads more book recommendations based on what everyone else is reading 😊😊
      Anyways, welcome to blogging and let me know if you need any more info. Always here to help 👍👍

  2. That is such an ambitious TBR! I’m really excited for our buddy read. 😍 We really need to discuss the details for that haha. 😅 Charvi, Sim and I are planning to buddy read Pinky next weekend. Maybe you can join in too? ♥️

    1. Ohh cool. I’ll definitely join in for Pinky. Just message me 😊😊
      And I know… we have to figure out our plan. I will defer to you because you have to plan around your work 😊😊

      My tbr is so damn scary, let’s see how much I’ll be able to read 😬😬😬

        1. Sure. That’s fine with me. I can’t get much done during weekends anyways. Whenever you read, you can let me know how much you are done with at the end of your day, and I can try to catch up. That way we can keep a similar pace too.

  3. Happy AP heritage month! The Three-Body Problem was also on my tbr, but took it off because whilst I like SFF, I didn’t think I could handle something so high brow 😂 I’d be interested to see what you think of it! Hope you have a great reading month 🙂

    1. Thank you and same to you 😊😊
      And I’m pretty scared to read The Three Body Problem too.. but my book club always tends to choose high brow sci-fi books and I’m just trying to keep up 😂😂 Hopefully I’ll understand it okay.

      You have a great reading month too 👍👍
