Not only is May the Asian Readathon (see more details and my TBR here), but it is also the first year for Read your own adventure, as hosted on Tiktok. As a rogue I will be reading a mixture of genres to tick off my prompts, as well as combing them with the Asian authors I will be using for the Asian Readathon.
Location 1: Cat’s Claw Tavern Read a book by multiple authors
This is how you lose the time war by Amal El-Mohtar and Max Gladstone
Thus begins an unlikely correspondence between two rival agents hellbent on securing the best possible future for their warring factions. Now, what began as a taunt, a battlefield boast, becomes something more. Something epic. Something romantic. Something that could change the past and the future.
Location 2: Assassins Keep Read a book with Trans/Non-binary rep
Location 3: Underground Market Read a book with plants/flowers on the cover
Pachinko by Min Jin Lee
Pachinko follows one Korean family through the generations, beginning in early 1900s Korea with Sunja, the prized daughter of a poor yet proud family, whose unplanned pregnancy threatens to shame them all. Deserted by her lover, Sunja is saved when a young tubercular minister offers to marry and bring her to Japan.
Location 4: Thieves Den (bonus prompt) Steal a book from someone else’s TBR
All Systems Red (The Murderbot Diaries) by Martha Wells
In a corporate-dominated spacefaring future, planetary missions must be approved and supplied by the Company. Exploratory teams are accompanied by Company-supplied security androids, for their own safety.
But in a society where contracts are awarded to the lowest bidder, safety isn’t a primary concern.
Location 5: The Knowledge Eater’s Hoard Read a book that intimidates you
Jade City by Fonda Lee
Jade is the lifeblood of the island of Kekon. It has been mined, traded, stolen, and killed for — and for centuries, honorable Green Bone warriors like the Kaul family have used it to enhance their magical abilities and defend the island from foreign invasion.
