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.
Cindy Pon: Want
Melissa de la Cruz: Love & War
Renee Ahdieh: Smoke in the Sun
Rahul Kanakia: Enter Title Here
Elsie Chapman: Along the Indigo
Julie Kagawa: Shadow of the Fox
Sona Charaipotra: Tiny Pretty Things
Ellen Oh: Prophecy
Aliette de Bodard: The House of Shattered Wings
Roshani Chokshi: Crown of Wishes
E. C. Meyers: Silence of Six
Lori M. Lee: Gates of Thread and Stone
Aisha Saeed: Written in the Stars
