AAPI Heritage Month Readathon

May is Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month, which honors the contributions and achievements of Asian and Pacific Americans. Last year I did the WithCindy 2022 Asian Readathon and had a lot of fun with it. She’s hosting it again, and you can watch her video here where she explains the readathon challenges and gives a lot of great recs.

I hit a really hard reading slump a few months ago, where I only read six books in March and four in April. It probably seems overly ambitious to pick eight books to read for May, but I’m hoping that a readathon takes me out of my reading slump! However, because of the slump I’m in, I only picked books that were already on my tbr lists, and I decided not to try to hit all of the challenges for this readathon.

Here are the books I picked for the readathon:

The Dragon’s Promise and Heart of the Sun Warrior are sequels to books I read last year, and I’m looking forward to reading them. I’ve heard so many good things about Foul Lady Fortune, which has been sitting on my tbr stack from BOTM for ages. Hayley Aldridge is the sophomore album of a woman I started following on Instagram years ago for her wedding photography, and it’s been exhilarating watching her become a published author not once but twice!

I bought On Such a Full Sea at a library book sale ages ago, so it’ll be nice to cross another off the physical tbr list. Malice seems right up my alley in the thriller and crime genre, The Sacrifice reeled me in with young adult colonialism horror, and admittedly, A Magic Steeped in Poison pulled me in with its gorgeous cover art.

As always, I’ll write up full reviews throughout the month and do a final summary post at the end of the month!
