Asian Lit Bingo TBR!

I announced the launch of Asian Lit Bingo yesterday, and since then, I’ve been busy putting together my own tentative TBR for the challenge. It’s a good opportunity to read a lot of the books I’ve had sitting on my shelves but haven’t gotten around to because of reasons. So without further ado, here is my super ambitious TBR!

  1. I started The Refugees (almost returned it to the library unread but am trying to read it because of this challenge) and it’s very good so far. Some of the others are on my TBR but many are new to me. I’m interested in what you think of Four Weeks, Five People.

  2. Woohoo The Shadow Hero! It’s probably my favourite out of Gene Luen Yang’s comics (the setting + plot were fantastic) and Sonny Liew’s art was amazing. Good luck and great worn Shenwei!
