It is that time of the year again! Asian Lit Bingo is organized by a bunch of us over at Lit CelebrAsian to celebrate Asian authors from May 1-May 31. There’s a reading challenge with a bingo card, a bunch of author interviews, features, discussions, etc. and we’ll be using the hashtag #AsianLitBingo across a variety of social media platforms to share these. Lit CelebrAsian is an initiative created by The Shenners, who brought together a bunch of Asian and diaspora bloggers from all over the world who are invested in supporting and promoting Asian voices in publishing. You can learn more about us over at our blog, and follow us on Twitter, Instagram, Goodreads, and Tumblr.
Take a look at this year’s bingo card:
Don’t forget to post a sign-up post on your preferred social media platform and link-up to the Lit CelebrAsian masterpost. Yes, there are prizes, and you do not want to miss out. You get points for posting a review for each book that you do read that qualifies for the challenge, and reviews on sites like Amazon and B&N are super helpful to authors- so it’s a win-win.
I have not made a TBR because I’m kind of in a reading slump and don’t really want to set myself up for failure. I will be posting updates on Twitter using the hashtag and just roll with anything I pick that fits one of the bingo slots. I’ll put all these together in a wrap-up post at the end of the month for the link-up.
Join us, friends! This is such a great way to be intentional about your reading, especially if you’ve been meaning to read more by marginalized authors. There’s so many amazing books out there by Asian authors that deserve our love and support.
Let me know in the comments if you’re planning to join us, and what you plan to read!
