#YARC2019 – The Year of the Asian Reading Challenge!

Okay, so I’m adding one more reading challenge this year. I went back and forth on this, because I wanted to go easy on the challenges this year, but this one is SO CUTE and is hosted by some of my favorite bloggers!

There are four hosts:

Lily @ Sprinkles of Dreams
Shealea @ Shut Up Shealea
Vicky @ Vicky Who Reads
CW @ The Quiet Pond

CW has drawn such AMAZING art for this reading challenge! Definitely go to her blog and look at the adorableness. (The whole blog is pretty adorable, not just the YARC post!)


There are different badge levels, and though my brain says I should go for one of the lower ones, I want that tiger! That means reading over 50 books by Asian authors this  year. I actually have three on my table to read already – Kingdom of the Blazing Phoenix, Julie Dao’s sequel to Forest of a Thousand Lanterns, Emiko Jean’s Empress of All Seasons, and Yangsze Choo’s The Night Tiger from January’s Book of the Month. I might have a fourth, if When Dimple Met Rishi counts! (Wait, six, with Sangu Mandanna’s A Spark of White Fire and Roshani Chokshi’s The Star-Touched Queen.) We’ll see how far I get by the end of the year. It’s not exactly a challenge that will mesh easily with my 50 States challenge. I might be able to combine a few books. But there’s a LOT of amazing Asian fantasy coming out this year!

I’ll keep a page updated with my progress, the link is also available in the sidebar!

  1. Good luck with this one! I had considered joining as well since I am already planning a lot of books by Asian authors, but then I’d probably get hyper competitive and neglect other books I have to get to lol.
