Chinese New Year Tag

Happy lunar new year, friends! ๐Ÿฎ

While my family doesn’t have traditions for December 31 and January 1st โ€” or really any other holidays, to be honest โ€” this one has always meant good food and related puns/idioms, calls to our extended family, and (at least while I was young) red envelopes. So I have lots of fond memories; it’s certainly one of my favorite holidays. 

I was tagged by Kelly Brigid @ Another Book in the Wall (last year, but by definition New Year’s comes around every year, so I don’t feel too bad about hoarding this one).

Year of the Asian 2020

Every year is a good year to read books by Asian authors, but especially when you’ve got the Year of the Asian Reading Challenge for extra motivation! I had a great time with YARC2019, so I’m really excited that it’s back.

Co-hosted by Vicky Who Reads, CW @ The Quiet Pond, Lily @ Sprinkles of Dreams, and Shealea @ Shut Up Shealea, the aim of this challenge is to read as many books written by Asian authors as you can! These books can be backlist titles (i.e. released in 2019 or earlier), new releases, and ARCs. We welcome books of any genre, any format, and any length. Check out the levels we have made for this challenge (drawn by CW!) and set your sights on a level you want to achieve.

We want this to be a relaxing and, above all else, fun challenge, so you can join in at any time in the year! The sign-up form will remain open until 2020 ends.

Follow us on Twitter (@YearOfTheAsian) for announcements, surprises, and more bookish fun. The official hashtag for this reading challenge is #YARC2020.

Year of the Asian Reading Challenge! #YARC2019

I said I wasn’t going to sign up for any more challenges โ€” clearly I amย a lying liar who lies, because here we are. (What a way to start the lunar new year!) Though in my defense, I was already planning to read lots of Asian authors this year, so really I’m just adding the step of collecting the list here.

2019 Reading Challenges

I’m trying to limit the number of challenges I enter, at least for the start of the year; I’ve only committed to three five thus far. But Nicole @ Feed Your Fiction Addiction made a masterlist of 2019 reading challenges and they all look amazing, so I may jump on some more later in the year!
