Year of the Asian Reading Challenge 2019 – Crime Fiction Edition

I usually tend to stay away from reading challenges – honestly they stress me out a bit. However, for 2019 I decided I will be participating in the “Year of the Asian Reading Challenge” because I have noticed that I somehow pigeonholed myself into a very narrow band of crime fiction. There is only so many British Cozies, New York Noirs, and Scandinavian Thrillers I can read am I right?

The challenge is hosted by a lovely group of bloggers. They have put a lot of effort and creativity into this challenge and I am very excited to see their future updates.

I am setting my goal at a modest 10 books for this challenge. I put together a shortlist of 15 books which have already been published (and translated) and have pretty good ratings (I am crossing my fingers that I can purchase them somewhere on the interwebs). I will also make sure to keep an eye out for Asian crime fiction coming out in 2019.

Is there a novel that came out recently that you think I should add to this list? What reading challenges are you participating in during 2019?

  1. ahhh, thank you for joining!!! i’m really glad, and I hope you have a lot of fun reading!!! (and I am not a crime fiction person, but these sound very very awesome!!!)


  2. I’m thrilled to hear that you’ll be joining us! I love the range of books you’ve selected for the challenge; a lot of our participants read YA, so it’s great to see some adult fiction as well. Good luck with the challenge, and I hope you have a great reading year! 💛
