TBR for Asian Lit Bingo + Asian Readathon

Hi everyone!

I’m a teeny bit late with this post but let’s just ignore that, okay?

Let me just start off by saying that I love readathons! My favourite part is probably making up my TBR for the readathon, especially when I’m trying to go for multiple readathons and merge all the TBRs to the best of my abilities.

This month I’m participating in three readathons, one of them being the Avenger Readathon which is uptil 14 May. But I’m not here to talk about that. May is the month of Asian Pacific American Heritage Month and the bookish community is surely embracing it with utmost enthusiasm!

There are two readathons about Asian books and authors up right now, both lasting for the month of May. I mean how could I say no?

So let’s check out my TBRs for both these readathons! 🙂

Shenanigans I Am Upto: Art Shop, Bookending Winter and a Fractured Foot?

So ever since I stopped writing wrap-ups(no regrets there) I’ve felt there may be some sort of disconnect between you all and me since those kinds of posts were where I could chat freely and just update you on my life in general.

So I guess I am starting a new series of posts aka. Shenanigans I Am Upto where I can pop in and just update you on random stuff in my life whenever a lot has been going on.

Like right now.

Also these posts are going to be simply put, a hot mess because my thoughts are a colossal heap  of tangled strings and I may keep adding stuff in these posts as I keep remembering it, which includes last minute too. Does that make sense? I hope it does.

Mythothon TBR

What better than planning for November before October ends?

A few weeks ago Louise @Foxes and Fairytales contacted me through Twitter about a Greek mythology related readathon and even before I finished reading her message I was screaming yes!

Basically Mythothon is a month long readathon from 1st to 30th November in your timezone. While the readathon is based on greek mythology you don’t actually have to read books of greek or any mythology, unless you want to.

You can create a full or partial TBR pertaining to the various prompts provided and just get reading! Sign-ups are open till November 1 but you can actually join whenever you want, latecomers are welcome too.

JUNE MONTHLY WRAP UP

Hi everyone!

I’ve been a very lazy person so this wrap-up post is kind of delayed but oh well. Better late than never!

LOTS of stuff happened last month! June is Pride month, as you all know, hence one of my favorite months. It doesn’t hurt that I didn’t have to go to school for that whole month either.

So let’s go over everything (probably just 50% thanks to my memory) that happened in June!

Indian Lit Readathon

Quick question: How many of you have recently read a book by an Indian author?

How many of you have ever read a book by an Indian author?

(I really hope all of you raised your hand at that last question)

 

As time passes the book community is slowly progressing and indulging in more diverse books so as to give the undermined communities some importance and to gain a deeper understanding about them. But somehow I feel that Indian literature has got subdued despite this diversity movement.

This is one of the reasons why I collaborated with some of my Indian blogging friends to organise Indian Lit Readathon; a 48hr readathon that will begin at 12 am IST on 7th July and end at 12pm IST on 8th July. In this readathon we’ll be aiming at reading Indian Literature written by Indian authors or authors of Indian origin and encouraging others to do so as well.
