#YARC2019: Completed the Challenge but Not As Much As I Wanted


As some of you may know, the Year of the Asian Reading Challenge is a year long challenge that is focused on reading books by authors of the variety of Asian nationalities. The challenge is hosted by 4 Asian bloggers:

Also, there’s a variety of challenge levels from participants to choose from, and I elected to read the MALAYAN TAPIR challenge, which consists of reading 21-30 books.


My goal was to read the 30 (or more) throughout the year, but unfortunately, I was only able to complete 27, falling 3 short of my goal. However, I’m pleased to have read as many as I did, and that I did meet the overall challenge.
