The Bloodprint | Ausma Zehanat Khan
post image

The Bloodprint was a small exciting find at Half Price Books yesterday. After We Hunt the Flame, I‘m hungry for more Middle Eastern-inspired fantasy series. This follows a woman on the hunt for a legendary manuscript with the power to free her people under a dark power and totalitarian state. And this cover is gorgeous.

MallenNC I have been meaning to read this. The U.K. cover is so pretty. I don‘t like the US cover as much. 5mo

Beast Player | Nahoko Uehashi
post image

The Beast Player is my most-anticipated. Its art style reminds me Spirited Away. It‘s a YA fantasy about a girl who can speak with animals, and she ends up getting caught up in a dark plot that could cost her life in a fight to save a kingdom on the brink of ruin. It‘s full of Japanese culture and myth.
Great for fans of Studio Ghibli!

I ugly cried. If you loved A Dog‘s Purpose and Art of Racing in the Rain, but you‘re more of a cat person, this book is for you. And you‘ll look at your kitty differently. ❤️❤️❤️❤️/5

I‘m still reading Travelling Cat Chronicles. It reminds me so much of A Dog‘s Journey but for cat people. I definitely recommend this.
For 2019, I‘m changing my reading habits. I‘m minimizing how much YA I read and increasing the amount of adult fiction I read, starting with Japanese fiction. See the link in my bio!

I went Kinokuniya and picked up a copy of The Traveling Cat Chronicles by Hiro Arikawa. I fell in love with the premise of this book. Having access to a shop that focuses on Japanese fiction is something I‘ve never had before. It‘s made me reconsider what I‘m being “sold” in stores like B&N. I‘d never find books like this there. #bookworm #bookish #booklover #bookgeek #bookaholic #bookaddiction #bookaddict #bookishlife #bookshimmy #readinglife

Desha Kinokuniya!! I miss that bookstore so much!! I used to live in Japan and I went to the one in Kumamoto City. Then for a while we had one in San Diego where I lived. Now that I‘m in more central coastal California the closest one is in LA in Little Tokyo. I‘m so happy you have one close to you and that you can find such great books! #JapaneseLit❤️ 12mo
AStoriedSoul @Desha it‘s definitely my favorite store now. I get my stationery and pens there. Now I‘m getting my books there too. It‘s an amazing store. 11mo
Desha That‘s so awesome!! Enjoy it! 📚❤️👍🏻 11mo

A master class from a modern master. I didn‘t think this book would be that helpful when I picked it up? But I got it because he obviously knows how to write. It ended up being an amazingly inspiring read for my writing.

Dear Martin | Nic Stone
post image
Pickpick

If you‘re looking for diverse books representing wide range of characters, I highly recommend both these books. The Nyxia series is one of few sci-fi series out there with a genuinely diverse cast that has real and honest rep of many races/cultures. Dear Martin presents truth and honesty about equality in America regarding race/rep. It will move you and blow your socks off. I can‘t recommend these works enough.

I finished this the other day and it made me love this series and its characters all over again and more so. It‘s a hard look at the consequences of war and the scars, seen and unseen, that are left in its wake. Beautiful and emotional book. I can‘t wait for the next!❤️

There are so many good books that have come out these last couple months, and Keira Drake‘s The Continent is one. I was anticipating this release for a long time too. It‘s the perfect blend of fantasy, survival thriller, and smart analysis of imperialism, race, and culture. I highly recommend it. And this cover yo!

The Black Witch | Laurie Forest
post image
Pickpick

This is an absolutely spectacular and captivating debut. I's unfailingly honest and adds an important critique to our world's continued injustices and prejudices. The hate this book has received clearly stems from quotations mined out of context. Given their full scope, this book's arguments against bigotry and hatred are more than apparent. The plot and world-building was exceptional and well done. I can't wait for the second book.
