In an effort to get myself to do some heavy duty reading so I can get to a decent level for POSSIBLY achieving my Goodreads reading goal for the year, I decided I’d join along on this read-a-thon!Continue reading “[Book Tag] Queer Lit Readathon for June 2019🏳️🌈”
I found this book tag sitting in my drafts, so I’ve decided to fill it out! Especially since Hungry Ghost Month is coming up soon… 👹👻👺
Book tag-list things are always fun and sometimes make me realise that I’ve been missing out on certain genres, or themes in my reading!!!
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…
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. 😎
No mangoes were hurt in the answering of this tag.

So I live in Singapore. Which is in Asia. Which does not have a lot of Jews. And most certainly not enough to warrant decorations all over the city-state to celebrate Hanukkah.
Which blows because as a kid I wished that just one place would have Hanukkah decorations. Hell, even some blue and gold lights somewhere would have been nice! BUT NO. It was all red and green and Santa this, reindeer that. Not even a few electric candles with blue fairy lights near or around them. 😒
THIS GOES OUT TO ALL MY FELLOW YIDS WHO RESENT BEING LEFT OUT IN THE SEASONAL MONTH OF DECEMBER.
AND WHO DON’T WANT TO ENGAGE IN EVERY SINGLE CHRISTMAS EVENT BECAUSE IT’S NOT EVEN THEIR HOLIDAY.
HAPPY HANUKKAH-CHANUKAH-HANNUKAH-THE ONE WITH THE CANDLES!!!
