My TBR for the Year of the Asian Reading Challenge

I want to participate in a few year-long reading challenges in 2019 and the Year of the Asian Reading Challenge (YARC) is one of them!

This amazing challenge is hosted by four amazing bloggers: Shealea @ Shut Up, ShealeaCW @ The Quiet PondLily @ Sprinkles of Dreams, and Vicky @ Vicky Who Reads. Thank you so much for hosting this challenge!


I’m going for the giant panda goal, of 31-40 books by Asian authors.

Monthly Prompts:

  • January: Family
  • February: Tropes
  • March: Challenge


Books I Have Already Read for YARC:

I link to reviews and posts about the books where they exist. Otherwise, I’m using affiliate links to Amazon. If you buy through those links, I will make a small amount of money on that sale (which I plan to use to buy more books to review), but it will not add any to the cost of your product. It comes out of the company’s profits.

Current Book Total: 30

In January 2019: 2 books

In February 2019: four books

In March 2019: nine books

In April 2019: three books

In May 2019: four books

In June 2019: four books

In July 2019: three books (so far)


I generally overload my TBR so I have multiple choices for each read, which is helpful as I am both a mood reader and my disabilities mean that sometimes I have varying capacity in what I am able to read due to brain fog. This is a total of 100 books in a mix of genres, with the most options in romance as that’s the main genre I read.

Contemp YA

Speculative YA

YA/MG Graphic Novel

Middle Grade

Contemporary Romance


Sports Romance

Holiday Romance

Historical Romance

Romantic Suspense/Mystery

Speculative/Paranormal Romance

Beauty and the Beast Retellings



Literary Fiction

Speculative Fiction

    1. I am all about having choices so that I can mood read! I am definitely not reading all of these this year. Going for 31-40 of them, not sure which ones, though!
