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.
Read a book recommended by an Asian
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…
