#YARC2019: Year of Asian Reading Challenge! (MASTERPOST)


Hi y’all!

So you may or may not have seen on Twitter, but a lovely group of Asian bloggers has banded together to create a year long reading challenge for reading books by Asian authors!

It seems like fun and a great experience to take part in, so I decided to! There are different challenge levels, and to start, I’ve decided to go with the MALAYAN TAPIR (21-30 books read), but that may change during the year as I get a better feel for how my year of reading will go!

You can find more information on the blogs of the 4 hosts:

Keep an eye on Shealea’s for monthly prompts and link round-ups, and be sure to follow the YARC twitter and the hashtag #YARC2019!

Also, if you decide to participate, Twitter user @yourtitakate created a handy spreadsheet for keeping track of your reads!

Now, if you’re interested, I’m going to share a bit of a TBR list, a currently reading list, and a read list, all of which I will update as much as possible as I read throughout the year! And since I’m a big mood reader, I’m going to include extra books on the TBR list to choose from.
