#YARC2020 : Sign-up Post for the Year of the Asian Reading Challenge

You heard that right: I am signing up for the Year of the Asian Reading Challenge this 2020. It really sucked that I wasn’t able to sign in last 2019 – but it’s a good thing that the creators of this reading challenge is giving this another go this year 2020 because this is honestly a very good reading challenge + it boosts the magnificent Asian lit industry and the Asian authors as they deserve to be.

So this year – I am starting a bit small. I am targeting to get the Indian Cobra badge – which means I am targeting and pledging to read 11 to 20 books written by Asian authors.

I honestly have half a mind to get the Philippine tarsier badge just to be patriotic but that would be too small a number and I wanted to challenge myself.

So yeah – I’ll be listing all the books that I’ve read in this post so this space will be updated from time to time.

Books Read for YARC 2020:

  1. Hirunaka No Ryuusei (Daytime Shooting Star) by Mika Yamamori
  2. The Gilded Wolves by Roshani Chokshi
  3. The Bone Witch by Rin Chupeco
  4. The Ghost Bride by Yangsze Choo
  5. Last Call at the Nightsade Lounge by Paul Krueger
  6. Haikyuu! by Haruichi Furudate

I have an ongoing readathon right now and it involves my favorite author of all time: Haruki Murakami! I am currently reading Killing Commendatore so this will be an interesting started for this challenge. I am so excited!

How about you? Are you also participating in this reading challenge? 🙂
