Happy May everyone! Yes, I realize that we are indeed several days into May already, and so this is a slightly belated post to say that I’m joining in Asian Lit Bingo again!
I had such great fun with it last year – and read so many amazing books! You can see my 2018 wrap-up here. I also wrote up a TBR list last year (although I didn’t manage to read them all).
