2020 Asian Readathon Wrap Up

I am once again thrilled to have participated in the Asian Readathon. Just like last year I was able to discover new books and authors that weren’t on my radar beforehand. It has also encouraged me to try and participate in other Readathons throughout the year to see what novels I can find I might not have discovered or picked up on my own.

My eyes have once again been opened to the vast amount of literature I have yet to get to and has thankfully broken me out of the reading slump I’ve found myself in the last couple of months. I read some fantastic books during this Readathon – even though I didn’t get to as many books as I did last year – and look forward to picking up more books by Asian authors in the future.

Without further ado, here’s my reading stats for this month:

Asian Readathon Wrap Up

I enjoyed this Readathon and if it is hosted again next year I plan on participating again. I discovered some great reads and authors that hadn’t been on my radar before. If they write anything else that peaks my interest, I’ll definitely pick them up. It’s not often that I pick up an author I’ve never heard of before and this Readathon introduced me to a lot of new authors. It also showed me that the amount of Asian authors I read was woefully lacking. I aim to fix that in the future.

Without further ado, here are the books I read for the Asian Readathon:

Completed Books:

  1. As Miss Beelzebub Likes by Matuba (Vol 1)[3 stars]
  2. Not Your Sidekick by C.B. Lee (The Sidekick Squad, Book 1)[4 stars]
  3. Not Your Villain by C.B. Lee (The Sidekick Squad, Book 2)[3 stars]
  4. Reflection by Elizabeth Lim (Twisted Tales, Book 4)[4 stars]
  5. I’m Afraid of Men by Vivek Shraya [3 stars]
  6. Sorry to Disrupt the Peace by Patty Yumi Cottrell [2 stars]
  7. A Thousand Beginnings and Endings edited by Ellen Oh & Elsie Chapman [average of 3.8 stars]

I didn’t get around to finishing Descendant of the Crane like I’d originally planned but I do hope to read it in the hear future. As well, I didn’t read The Sun is Also a Star as I instead chose to read books written by Asian authors instead of just about them. Finally, I didn’t end up finishing Everything Here is Beautiful, even though I’ve started it. I hope to finish it shortly but I also have 2 other books on the go right now. Either way, I will be reading all 3 of these books before too long

All of the books I read throughout this Readathon have their own dedicated post. Here’s a very brief outline of my feelings on each book:
