Hi, y’all! So in efforts to read (a lot) more diversely this 2019, I’m signing up to be a part of the 2019 Year of the Asian Reading Challenge as hosted by some of the lovely people from the book blogging community: Lily from Sprinkles of Dreams, Vicky from Vicky Who Reads, Shealea from Shut Up, Shealea, and CW from The Quiet Pond!
