❤️こんにちは, Lovely Readers❤️ I’m stoked to announce that Bookish Valhalla will be hosting a Year Of Asian Stories, our very first reading challenge in four years! I know, I know. Reading challenges typically begin in January and proceed throughout the year. In a perfect, little world, YOAS would have followed that narrative. But we like breaking the rules, and honestly, reading is fun no matter when you do it so long as you enjoy the book.
For the book lover, every season is a series of monthly celebrations. Christmas doesn’t stop on December 25th and ringing in the new year isn’t just about making resolutions to improve ourselves. Any moderately book-obsessed-word-owl will tell you that the world revolves around new releases and tbr piles. We live and breathe for the novels that have captured our hearts — and whatever book might come along next to woo us. Let me just say, with the covers I’ve seen so far, they are not playing games; these new releases are gorgeous and fierce and demand to be noticed.
