Late Jan/Early Feb Haul [Book Haul]

Well this is quite the belated post… But I thought I’d do it all the same.

I keep buying books here and there EVEN when I said I wouldn’t and would stick to the library since I still have SOOOO many books at home yet to read…. siGh…

Guess I am that b*tch.

Better Shorts Than ‘Cat Person’ [Literary Lists]

If you were away from the internet recently, let me fill you in. Everyone lost their minds over a semi decent short story in the New Yorker about a 20 something college girl having a questionable but short lived relationship.

Long story short, people got upset, people had opinions, and honestly, there are SO MANY better short stories out there that you can read instead of this one. Here are my recommendations of short story anthologies that you can read instead of bothering with that one. 👍👍👍

JY Yang Book Signing [IRL Adventures + Book Haul]

On the 21st of October I went to the big Kinokuniya bookstore in Takashimaya in Singapore to FINALLY meet the author JY Yang in person for their book signing!!

I’ve talked to them before for a while on ye ol’ twitters, so it was really nice to get to finally meet them in person. To make it official.

SG NDP BT 2017🇸🇬 [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……………….

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. 😎
