Books, TBR


Hello bookish friends!

For this months’ TBR, I decided to write down 30 (ish) titles of books I wanted to get around to in May and picked them out randomly. Since it’s the Asian Readathon (details here), I decided to write down 10 of the books by Asian authors I wanted to get to the most and drew out the titles of the ones below. I might end up reading more as I didn’t pick out as many as I wanted to, but I’ll see how my reading goes for this month. I’ve carried over two books I didn’t manage to get around to from last month (Song of Sorrow & Oathbringer) and I’m especially hoping to finish Oathbringer since I haven’t read a page since March!

    1. I just finished it this morning – it’s a really worthwhile read. It has great discussions about what it is to be queer and I really liked how open and honest it was about sex and relationships. It did get very dark in places though, so content warning for harassment and stalking. Definitely worth the read though if you’re okay with those topics!

  1. That’s so many great books on this list. I hope you enjoy the ones you pick!
    I’ve got a bunch of scifi arcs to read this month so I’ll probably read a bunch of contemporary books in between them
