Asian Readathon TBR

I have decided to take part in the asian readathon. I am aware there are some prompts to follow but I pretty much believe the books in my list fill them perfectly. The only prompt I will not be doing is reading Little Fires Everywhere mainly because I have already read it and it's not a book I'm interested in rereading.

Here is the physical list:
  • A Fine Balance by Rohinton Mistry
  • The Beast Player by Nahoko Uehashi
  • The God of Small Things by Arundhati Roy
  • On Earth We're Briefly Gorgeous by Ocean Voung
  • The Map of Salt and Stars by Zeyn Joukhadar
  • The Joy Luck Club by Amy Tan
However, there are some other titles I own as ebooks that will work as back up in case I finish my physical TBR:
  • The Sleepwalker's Guide to Dancing by Mira Jacob
  • Anna K by Jenny Lee
  • Territory of Light by Yuko Tsushima
  • Your House Will Pay by Steph Cha
  • The Immortals of Tehran by Ali Araghi
  • The Mountains Sing by Nguyen Phan Que Mai
  • The Beauty of Your Face by Sahar Mustafah

Vintage Classics: Brontë Series

Maybe you don’t know this about me but I collect different edition of Jane Eyre and when I learnt that Vintage was releasing the new Brontë series I just couldn’t say no. 

The 80th Anniversary Edition of Rebecca by Daphne Du Maurier

I received this beautiful edition in the mail yesterday and I just couldn't not share it here. I read Rebecca last year and despite not writing a full review of it here on the blog, it became one of my all time favourites. Still today there are moments when I find myself thinking about the story and the characters. Du Maurier brings to life and incredible story and memorable characters and it's one of those books I'll recommend to anyone.

On the Come Up by Angie Thomas | 2021 Reads

  I enjoyed this because Thomas focuses mostly on the internal conflicts of the main character and how her decisions affect her and everybody around her and still deals with a lot of racial issues that Black (and Brown) young people have to deal with in the US, especially in poor neighbourhoods. Bri is a teen going through a difficult time. She can seem hot-headed, opinionated and, at times, selfish, but she is just trying to be herself, help those she loves and pursue her dreams of becoming a rapper. I was reminded though of why I rarely read YA contemporary fiction these days: one, dramatic teens (don't get me wrong, I get where they are coming from but still makes my eyes roll) and two, intentional lack of communication between adults and kids which drives me up the wall.
