Hi guys, I hope you are all well. I know I don’t usually post on a Thursday but I wanted to announce my participation in the Year of Asian Reading challenge and share my possible TBR. This challenge is all about reading as many books by Asian authors as possible. One of my favourite books last year was written by a Japanese author (Nahoko Uehashi) so I cannot wait to find more favourites. It is a year long challenge and you guys can join in at any time if you want to. It is co-hosted by four fantastic bloggers; The Quiet Pond CW from The Quiet Pond, Lily from Sprinkles of Dreams, Shealea and Vicky from Vicky Who Reads.
I’ve decided to go with the adorable Malayan tapir challenge level, which means my goal is to read 21-30 books. I’m hoping to really push myself and try out a load of new authors for this challenge. I think I have a tendency to stick with the authors I am familiar with so this challenge will hopefully make me try new authors.
Now I am going to share a possible TBR. I’m not going to be sharing 21-30 books because then this post would be very long and I currently don’t have that many on my TBR. To be honest I’m not the best at sticking to TBRs so we’ll see how this goes :).

Are you participating in this challenge? I’d love to know if you have any recommendations for me. I hope you are all having a wonderful day and I will see you next time.
