Sophie's misadventures when her determination to prove herself intersects with a dragon's life is a magical, rewarding story and the art is so beautiful! I loved Wendy Xu's Mooncakes, and I think I liked this one even more, which I didn't think was possible. #AAPI #Dragon #Comics

A very fun fantasy read! It reminded me a lot of reading Black Sun. All of the characters were great, especially Mephi! The island world was great, and Lin dealing with her dad‘s boneshard magic and experiments was compelling. I did kind of wish the three characters who were barely featured had more POV chapters, because I kept forgetting about them. #LGBTQ #Fantasy #AAPI #Islands #AnimalFriend

This book is 8.5/10 — I would have liked more battles, throuple could have been flushed out better, book was left on a cliffhanger, and little more detailed world building. I would recommend this book. Great long weekend read. I really enjoyed this book. #libby #aapi #lgbtq #poc #woc #china #ironprincess

I was at a car show and brought my book. I sat down and read while people walked around. Weather was nice but this pic reminds me of this book. I will say this is a page turner. There are very few slow parts. Gets to the point and the action. #woc #battleready #pilot #poc #aapi #boundfeet

First off, I loved the first book in the series, Tokyo Ever After. It was one of my favorite books of 2021 which made me very excited to read the sequel. I still think that the first book was a tiny bit better, but for the most part I found the sequel to be a worthy successor.

As I promised @Desha --- besides missing the Murakami short story anthology, the two Mary K. Choi recent hauls, and the William Gibson K/J-pop idol technopunk, here's my #aapi East Asia, Southeast Asia, and Pacific Islands fiction and nonfiction stack! Comment for specifics on authors/titles.

Desha That is awesome! Thank you so much for sharing your stack!! Added the tagged book to my TBR…sounds really good!! 👏🏻😊 6mo
Desha Well added BOTH tagged books to my TBR lol 😂 6mo
tokorowilliamwallace @Desha I could ship it to you. I found it in a free box of donated books featured inside a local used bookstore, and I haven't started it yet.The other I got for ~$5 at the thriftbooks website for a sale, but it appears to be a linear story of Vietnamese experience set in successive poetry entries. 6mo
Desha They both sound very good for very different reasons 😂…but please don‘t send a book if you haven‘t had a chance to read it yourself! I‘m more than happy to take it off your hands if you have read it though! 👍🏻😊 6mo

It is Asian American Pacific Islander Heritage Month! So in honor of this month, I am reading a few books by #aapi authors from my (mountainous) TBR pile. Highly recommend each book as they were thoroughly enjoyable!

Malinda Lo tells the story of queer Asian American experiences during the Red and Lavender Scare. Teenager Lily navigates the complex interactions of her identities, made more complex by dangerous politics targeting vulnerable populations. I don't always enjoy historical fiction, but this was a good read. #HistoricalFiction #LGBTQ #AAPI
