In honor of Asian Pacific American Heritage Month, I just wanted to shout out a bunch of upcoming books written by Asian authors. I was going to do a post along with a rec post I also have in the works, but um, wow! That’s a lot of books by Asians coming out in the next few months! I am literally so excited for all of these? Like, I thought of trying to write my own little blurb but it’s just going to be “I can’t wait to read this!!!” or “I’m sooo excited for this!!!” and variations repeated ad infinitum. So yeah.
