Possible TBR for Year of the Asian Reading Challenge 2019 #YARC2019


I’m not great with sticking to a TBR, but I wanted to share some possibilities for this years Asian Reading Challenge.  My goal is Indian Cobra which is 11-20 books by Asian Authors.  My sign up post can be found here.


I’ve already read two books for January, but I’ll include those below.  Some of these books are ones I have arcs of, so they have a much higher chance of being read.  Others are highly anticipated releases for me or some back releases that I haven’t had a chance to read yet.




Blood Heir  (I should be getting an arc)

Descendant of the Crane  (read my arc in January)

Soul of the Sword

Aru Shah and the Song of Death




Wicked Fox

I Love You So Mochi

The Candle and the Flame





Somewhere Only We Know

We Hunt the Flame

Spin the Dawn  (I have an arc)

Circle of Shadows  (read arc in January)




These three are books I own, but haven’t read yet.  The Bone Witch, Wildcard, and 96 Words For Love.




The Tiger At Midnight  (I have an arc.)

Hungry Hearts

The Bride Test  (I have an arc.)



And there are two books with no covers.  One has no title or release date yet, but I’m hoping it will be out in 2019.  Misaligned  and  Book Two for Girls of Paper and Fire.



That’s 20 total and I may change some books around.  I’m hoping to read as many as possible this year.

I'm Kristi. I'm a wife, mom, and grandma. I have been breeding leopard geckos for ten years. I love to read and have been trying to review more books (the reason for this blog besides wanting to talk about books with everyone). I also love music and going to concerts, mostly punk and pop punk.

  1. I love this post! Totally adding some to my TBR from this. I’m excited for a lot of these too. I still have to read Wildcard and I just got a copy of Circle of Shadows! I also should inform you Blood Heir is being removed from publication.

      1. I just read the article. I didn’t realize there was such a controversy. I’m only at the beginning of the book, so I haven’t read that part yet, but that’s going to be hard to come back from.

      1. I just go and splurge sometimes. In the very beginning I didn’t really know what I was doing and treated Netgalley as a library. I have been paying for that ever since. I have SO many backlist titles to read it is insane. Some of them look good and others just look horrible, like what was I thinking requesting some of them? I hate to review DNFed books too, which really drives my feedback ratio down as well.

      2. I did the same things. I sent feedback on some of the older ones saying that they just don’t interest me anymore and that I over requested way too much when I started. I still have quite a few, but I may send feedback on some of those, too.

      3. I did, too. But there is an option to send feedback “I will not be reviewing” that doesn’t affect your rating. (It won’t go up.) It’s not an actual review. But you can always send a review stating that you’re not longer interested in reading the book, but thank you for the chance.
