    Year Of Asian Stories | A 2019 Reading Challenge

    ❤️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.
