i can’t remember the last time i made a monthly tbr – if ever??!! – but i wanted to share mine this month for a few reasons:
1今天是亚太岛民美国传统月我想分享我的爱我读了一些亚洲作家的书/关于亚洲故事的书！我原本想参加asian readathon，就像i did last year.but realistically, it’s not happening. mostly because i read one (1) book last month and zero the month prior. this quarantine has oddly stopped all motivation for reading. SO. i’m going to be realistic and set smaller goals.
一开始我真的很内疚，因为我没有在我的tbr里只读亚洲的故事（我觉得自己是个不好的亚洲人/多元化作者等的倡导者），但是。你知道吗。我真的开始了一个庆祝和推广亚洲作家/故事的读书俱乐部.SO. every month is an asian reading month. anyway.
02. i want to keep myself accountable.i mentioned this earlier but I HAVEN’T BEEN READING. and it’s making me sad. it’s not even that i don’t希望到但更努力，我没有优先考虑它。我有一百万件我需要/想做，也没有足够的时间来做这一切。这也是如此，但我能够在通勤上倾听很多音乐会。现在thatdoesn’t happen… my reading has tanked. and yeah,i know, i wanted to focus on the quality of books vs amount this year but i still want toread. 所以我要分享每月一次的tbr。
i love you so mochi, by sarah kuhn
this is our pick forsubtle asian book clubthis month! it’s been on my tbr since i heard of it pre-release last year. it’s dubbed as a cute contemporary set in spring featuring japanese culture & fashion. i’m hoping this will lighten the mood and allow me to fictionally travel during this quarantine/isolation.
ghosts of the shadow market, by cassandra clare (and others)
我上个月读的一本书是金链（终于！）这让我想要更多。还有一点困惑/想要更多的背景。特别是马修·费尔奇尔德。我知道这是因为我没读过影子市场的鬼魂。这是一个以暗影猎人世界为背景的短篇小说集，我很兴奋！我读Tales from the Shadowhunter Academy, another short story collection, and loved it. i found it easy to read because they’re short stories – so you can take breaks in between – but it comes together really nicely. i’m hoping this will be the same experience!
我一直想读一本小的生活ngest time and may this month be the month it finally happens!!! i got the audiobook and am READY to cry. (okay maybe not but,,,, it’s fine) i’m thinking of doing a reading vlog of my process mostly because everyone on booktube does it lol. either way, i’m excited! i’m hoping this will get me back into reading via audiobook and i’ll pick up more after! i’m not adding any more audiobooks to the tbr mostly because this book is HUGE and it’s like 30+ hours. again, keeping itrealistic.
