For a while now, I’ve always wanted to participate in either a book challenge or a Readathon. However, due to either being too busy or forgetting to prepare for one, I just wasn’t able to take part.
So, what a better way to start off my book challenges this year by participating in next month’s #Asianreadathon.
This readathon is hosted by these lovely group of Booktubers:
- Cindy (readwithcindy)
- Sandra (gotathingforthings)
- Chloe (bookswithchloe)
- Kav (xreadingsolacex)
- Ellias (elliasreads)
It is to encourage readers to read more books, either, by an Asian author or about an Asian character. So if you would like to participate in this readathon with me, you can see all the details about the readathon in readwithcindy‘s announcement video
Now without further ado, let’s get started.
- Read any book by an Asian author.
- Read a graphic novel featuring an Asian character or written/drawn by an Asian author (manga, manhua, manhwa, and comics count).
- Read a book featuring an intersectional Asian character or written by an intersectional Asian identity (i.e. queer, mixed, disabled, neurodiverse, etc).
- Read a book by Asian author that was originally written in their native language (translated books and graphic novels count).
- Read the group book: A Thousand Beginnings and Endings by Ellen Oh, which will be covered in the live show on Saturday, May 25 at 6pm EST on readwithcindy’s channel.
*Note: You can combine challenges and read in any order; however, EACH book you read should feature a character or author of a different Asian ethnicity. This is to encourage cultural diversity.*
