#1KBE A Thousand Beginnings and Endings Reading Challenge Sign-Up

I always love participating in Aetnee @ Read at Midnight‘s reading challenges, and #1KBE is no exception.

Centered around the upcoming A Thousand Beginnings and Endings anthology, edited by Ellen Oh and Elsie Chapman and featuring multiple East, South, and Southeast Asian authors retelling myths from their cultures, this reading challenge challenges you to read more fiction from the featured authors.

The goal is to read a piece of fiction from four of the authors in a row on the bingo board, in any direction. The challenge runs from Sunday, June 10th (that’s tomorrow!) to Sunday, July 1st in your timezone (for me, it’s EST). You can sign up here!

Here’s the bingo board, which I’ll cross items off as I go, as well as what I’m hoping to read during the challenge! The ones I’ve completed, I’ll mark off in teal.

  1. Good luck with your challenge! A Thousands Beginnings and Endings sounds so good. Love & War didn’t have much of a plot, but I did enjoy reading it! I’m also so excited to read Smoke in the Sun! Shadow of the Fox sounds so interesting and I’m looking forward to picking that up too.

    1. thank you! I’m not a big fan of Cruz’s work in general (it feels to commercial to me) but I read book 1 so I might as well read book 2! and yes, I’m so excited to pick up both!
