Can you believe we're already on our third month of the year, and #YARC2019 is almost 1/4 of the way done?! I certainly can't! Either way, if you haven't heard about it, #YARC2019, or the Year of the Asian Reading Challenge, is a year-long reading challenge dedicated to reading more books by Asian authors! You … Continue reading What to Read for #YARC2019 This Month? (March YARC Recs!)
I find it ironic that it's taken me a while to sign up for the reading challenge that I myself am co-hosting, but also . . . I have a very busy blog schedule, okay? And nobody wants nine straight days of posts from me that is absurd (but happening in February so SORRY). Anyways, … Continue reading Finally! Signing Up for the Year of the Asian Reading Challenge #YARC2019
I am so so excited to announce this challenge to y'all! 2019 is full of so many awesome releases by Asian authors, and I can't boost them enough! So me and some friends (CW, Lily, & Shealea) have started this reading challenge so we can enjoy awesome Asian novels--old and new--as well as have fun … Continue reading Year of the Asian Reading Challenge 2019: Have Fun Reading More Diversely! 🎉
I'm normally not one for goals. Frankly, I'm not one for the whole "new year" concept either (except Chinese New Year, because then I get to eat lots of food). But symbolically I realize how it could help people (still don't really see why it's a holiday, but I'll take what I can get) set … Continue reading Goal Setting or Wishful Thinking? My Goals for 2019
Normally I don't write wrap-up posts for reading challenges, but I thought it would be nice to sum up what I read during #ARCAugust. You can read my sign-up post with more detail about the challenge here, but the gist of it is that you try and read as many ARCs as possible in one … Continue reading Wrapping Up #ARCAugust 2018: What Did I Read?
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 … Continue reading #1KBE A Thousand Beginnings and Endings Reading Challenge Sign-Up
I'm up for another round of Bookish Bingo this season! I ended up forgetting about my winter one midway through (oops) but to my defense, the last couple prompts were tricky with all the wintery themed books. Hopefully I'll do better this time! The lovely Becca from Pretty Deadly Reviews is hosting this once again … Continue reading Spring 2018 Bookish Bingo hosted by Pretty Deadly Reviews
Welcome to another month's wrap-up! This one's going to be a little different & a little more "me-focused" because I took a Twitter hiatus for some time of this month (Feb. 9th-21st) and probably missed a lot of awesome news. (Like all those gorgeous cover reveals happening!) But just know that lots of things were … Continue reading February 2018 Wrap-Up
Today's (late) post is something geared more towards a discussion, but I wanted to know your thoughts on reading long books as well as sharing mine! I've talked to a few friends, such as Aitana @ Aitana Reads, a while back about what book lengths they prefer and I heard a wide range. Some people … Continue reading Long Books: A Good or Bad Reading Choice?
Ah, hello 2018. And with it, comes all those New Year's resolutions to make change in your lives and be better people in general.

I did … Continue reading 5 Ways to Read More (with GIFs!) Part II
