Year of the Asian Reading Challenge 2019!

I’ve been trying to be better about going around and commenting to other people’s posts. I was looking at the lovely Book Rambler’s blog and saw her Year of the Asian Reading Challenge post. I could not have signed up more quickly.

Basically, the idea is that you make a pledge to read as many books by Asian authors as you can and I am living for it.

The reading challenge is being hosted by:

CW from The Quiet Pond (
Lily from Sprinkles of Dreams (
Shealea from [new blog still under construction, oops]
Vicky from Vicky Who Reads (

And it has some of the cutest badges I’ve ever seen. I’m going for the Asian Elephant level, which means that I’m going to try to read 40 books or more by Asian authors, but I’ll be updating the badges here as I earn them.

You can sign up by going to Vicky’s sign-up post to read more about the rules.

I was already thinking of doing a Haruki Murakami marathon this year, so I’m so psyched to get started.
