Reading Challenges Wrap-Up: January – February ’20

I joined two reading challenges this year and will be giving an update on both in the same post every month. Year of the Asian reading challenge is hosted by Lily @ Sprinkles of Dreams, Shealea @ Shut Up Shealea, Vicky @ Vicky Who Reads, and CW @ The Quiet Pond. Be sure to check out their blogs to join and challenge yourself to read as many books by Asian authors as you can. I am currently aiming for 11-20 books and have made some really good progress. Covers linked to Goodreads.


Books by Asian authors I read in January and February:

  1. Monstress, Vol. 3: Haven by Marjorie M. Liu, Sana Takeda (Illustrator)
  2. The Poppy War by R.F. Kuang
  3. Of Curses and Kisses by Sandhya Menon

Reading Challenge Goal: 11-20 books; Current Count: 3 books

I have also joined the Con Sabor Reading Challenge hosted by Dani @ metamorphoreader, Astrid @ Book Love Book Reviews, Natalia @ Books.Build.Life, and Nox @ Nox the Reader which focuses on picking up books by Latinx authors. I have a couple of goals with this one but have only made progress with one. I am aiming to read 30 books by Latinx authors this year. So far I am on schedule to accomplish this but might have to step up my game in the coming months so I don’t fall behind. Covers linked to Goodreads.


Books by Latinx authors I read in January and February:

  1. Diamond City by Francesca Flores
  2. The House of Broken Angels by Luis Alberto Urrea
  3. Citizen Illegal by José Olivarez
  4. American Street by Ibi Zoboi
  5. Children of the Land by Marcelo Hernandez Castillo

Reading Challenge goal: 30 books; Current Count: 5 books

  1. I read the first volume of Montress and was a bit confused.

    Did The Poppy War traumatize you?? Cuz that book messed me up.
