The last couple years have been especially difficult for the Asian community. While all of us have been affected by the pandemic, those in the Asian community have not only had to live with that constant uncertainty, but they have also had to fear for their lives, safety, and livelihoods. For many Asian-Americans, this fear isn’t new as our country’s islamophobia is rampant, but for those who are Chinese-presenting (this includes those who are actually of Thai, Japanese, Korean and other non-Chinese backgrounds), there is a new fear. Before we dig into the book recommendations, I want to tell you […]

The film adaptation of To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before is perfectly fine.  I know this was a well-loved film – the community blew up with enthusiasm after its release – so please don’t take any of this comparison review as bashing the film.  I genuinely believe it was perfectly fine as it was. But you know us readers. We love to compare things to the books, and often, adaptations just don’t hold up. On it’s own, To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before is adorable.  It’s a sweet teen chick flick and in that way, I loved it.  Lana Condor […]

Truth?  I spent a lot of time in June hiding in our bedroom.  Why?  Because there’s an air conditioner in the bedroom and the temperature is lovely in there.  Honestly if we just moved the refrigerator up there, I’d never leave.  Well, almost never. Summer is not my favorite season.  I like it in theory and through windows, but as far as frolicking and enjoying the season? Ehhh, I’ll pass.  I get all sweaty and it’s icky.  If y’all haven’t figured it out yet, the only season I really like is autumn, and I adore autumn. But that’s alright, because you […]

  To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before is such a sweet and heartwarming book.  It has its conflicts and its moments, but for the most part, my heart was so full with the slow flow of falling in love.  There’s really nothing like falling in love for the first time, a fluttering that inspires so many cliches.  To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before captures it very well. There are a lot of different relationships in this book and I find them interesting on all levels.  First of all, Lara Jean and her sisters.  There’s a different relationship between each of […]

In June, it feels like there’s soooooo much time left in the year to work towards my annual goals and stuff, but dang.  The end of the year really snuck up on me in 2018.  I was going strong with the 2018 Debut Authors Challenge, and then about halfway through the year it occurred to me that I should probably start reading the debuts exclusively until I caught up.  Then those took me right to the end of the year, with An Absolutely Remarkable Thing just squeaking by. This year, I’m not actively participating in the debut authors challenge (says the girl who’s read three […]
