This year I have decided to join @books_andstories_ call to make sure that our reading diversity includes reading books written by Asian authors. To participate all you have to do is read Asian authors this year (a minimum of 12) and use the hashtag #asianlitgram on Instagram.

Books I have already read this year that fit the prompt:

  1. Home Fire by Kamila Shamsie
  2. Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon Vol. 1 by Naoko Takeuchi

Here are some books I already own which will fit the prompt:

  1. If You Leave Me by Crystal Hana Kim
  2. Pachinko by Min Jin Lee
  3. The Kiss Quotient by Helen Hoang
  4. The God of Small Things by Arundhati Roy
  5. The Guilded Wolves by Roshani Chokshi
  6. Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini
  7. An Ember in the Ashes by Sabaa Tahir (there are two others in the series as well that I don’t own yet)
  8. Darius the Great is Not Okay by Adib Khorram
  9. Two Dark Reigns by Kendare Blake (the third book in the Three Dark Crowns series)
  10. When Dimple Met Rishi by Sandhya Menon
  11. From Twinkle With Love by Sandhya Menon
  12. Wildcard by Marie Lu
  13. Legend by Marie Lu (there are two others in the series as well that I don’t own yet)
  14. A Good Indian Wife by Anne Cherian

Here are some that I don’t own but want to read:

  1. The Vegetarian by Han Kang
  2. The Star-Touched Queen series by Roshani Chokshi
  3. All You Can Ever Know by Nicole Chung (I have this one out from the library currently because it’s a February Stacks Pod pick).


Any suggestions for books by Asian authors not on here that I should read? Have you read any of these? Any I should prioritize?

One thought on “#AsianLitGram TBR

  1. […] I previously posted about this challenge and posted my TBR but the basic idea is to read at least one book by an Asian author per month in 2019 (for a total of 12). As of now I have technically completed the challenge but, of course, plan to continue reading Asian Lit throughout the year. I also posted this to Instagram but it was before I read Miracle Creek, which is why it’s not pictured in the photo. […]
