SG NDP BT 2017๐Ÿ‡ธ๐Ÿ‡ฌ [Book Tag]

Singaporeans love acronyms. It’s a known fact. This year the nation turns 52, which means it’s been 52 years of my dad dealing with, “but if you’re from Singapore, how can you be white?” seeing as he’s so old that when he was born here, he had a commonwealth UK passport.

ANYWAY I decided to make a silly book tag relating to the nonsense you can find on every national day parade. Sort of like a bingo card, but with book recs, if you will.

I’m gonna tag some local authors that I love (on twitter), and then be daring at tag some Malaysian ones too and hope they don’t try to strangle me with their kebaya lol……………….

BUT DON’T JIO ME OK YOU CAN DO THIS IF I DIDN’T TAG YOU TOO…

Before I started this blog in 2015, I made it a point to go on a bit of a book crawl so I could make some posts showcasing the indie stores, while I was back home in Singapore.

Didn’t really get around to making more than two of those posts… BUT in the spirit of Indie Bookshop Week, I’m going to feature those bookstores I visited, and in geographical order!

Asian Lit Bingo [Book Tag]

At the beginning of May I saw Aentee’s post about this month long event called,ย Asian Lit Bingo. Which is AMAZING, being from Singaporeย I’m always trying to find more books, especially SFF, written by Asian authors as well as books that ARE Asian in content in someway.

Instead of participating because my reading has been a bit stagnant as of late, I decided to find a book for each of the squares and make a rec list instead!! In retrospect I probably should have posted this earlier, but whatever. Better late than never. ๐Ÿ˜Ž

NB: This was previously locked as it was an assignment for my Masters course, but since marking is over now I will unlock it! Also cause I got good feedback from it so why not. ๐Ÿ˜Ž

The Chosen One. The one who will save us all.

The one who will vanquish the demons.

The one who is EVERYWHERE.

Aย clichรฉ or just badly utilized? And has it gotten any better?
