Asian Lit Bingo [Book Tag]

At the beginning of May I saw Aentee’s post about this month long event called, Asian Lit Bingo. Which is AMAZING, being from Singapore 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. 😎

Books marked with a ✔️ are books I have read or are currently reading.
