Year of the Asian 2020 Challenge! #YARC2020

I can’t wait to fully participate in #YARC 2020 this year! And from the very beginning too! Last year, I joined when I found out about this, back in June, so I was six months behind from starting. However, my goal was at least one book, and I ended up hitting 17! I can’t wait to see how many books I get to this year.

Be sure to click on the link above for the introduction post, and to sign up! This post will serve as my progress tracker for the year, so stay tuned for that.
