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:
- Monstress, Vol. 3: Haven by Marjorie M. Liu, Sana Takeda (Illustrator)
- The Poppy War by R.F. Kuang
- 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:
- Diamond City by Francesca Flores
- The House of Broken Angels by Luis Alberto Urrea
- Citizen Illegal by José Olivarez
- American Street by Ibi Zoboi
- Children of the Land by Marcelo Hernandez Castillo
Reading Challenge goal: 30 books; Current Count: 5 books
