YARC 2020: Year of the Asian Reading Challenge wrap up

Hello! I decided in March of 2020 to participate in the Year of the Asian Reading Challenge. The Year of the Asian Reading Challenge is a reading challenge hosted by Lily @ Sprinkles of Dreams, Shealea @Shut Up Shealea, Vicky @ Vicky Who Reads and CW @ The Quiet Pond. The goal of this challenge is to read as many books written by Asian authors as you can! Any book by an Asian author counts!

I don’t think that it’s happening again in 2021, but I really enjoyed doing it in 2020, and it definitely pushed me to read more books by Asian authors!

Anyways, I decided it would be good to do a short wrap up post of all of the books I read by Asian authors in 2020. So, here they are!

My goal:

My goal was to reach the Indian Cobra level, which is to read 11 to 20 books by Asian authors! I didn’t set a TBR, and was very unorganized with my reading, but I did end up reading 14 books by Asian authors! (I also… didn’t really keep track of my reading super well, so this number might be off by one or two. It shouldn’t be, but it’s possible.)

I also didn’t count individual rereads for the number of books, because they’re not different books, if that makes sense. With rereads though I probably read closer to 17 or 18 books.

Books read:

  1. Amina’s Voice, by Hena Kahn
  2. The Gilded Wolves, by Roshani Chokshi
  3. The School for Good and Evil, by Soman Chainani
  4. The Silvered Serpents, by Roshani Chokshi
  5. Aru Shah and the End of Time, by Roshani Chokshi
  6. Aru Shah and the Tree of Wishes, by Roshani Chokshi
  7. Aru Shah and the Song of Death, by Roshani Chokshi
  8. The Star-Touched Queen, by Roshani Chokshi
  9. Too All the Boys I’ve Loved Before, by Jenny Han
  10. P. S. I Still Love You, by Jenny Han
  11. Always and Forever, by Jenny Han
  12. The Henna Wars, by Adiba Jaigirdar
  13. The Poppy War, by R. F. Kuang
  14. Darius the Great is Not Okay, by Adib Khorram

And I guess that’s all I have for the post! Even though I’m not going to be officially participating in a challenge this year, I’m going to still try and read more books by Asian authors.

Did you participate in any 2020 reading challenges? Did you read any good books by Asian authors the past year? Chat with me in the comments below!
