May Wrap-Up

This was a great month with a lot of really great stories. With everything going on in the world I was super happy to participate in the Asian Readathon. Especially since I recently found out through 23&Me that I am 100% Central and South Asian which made reading these diverse stories with Asian characters even better. I always knew I was Indian obviously, but due to colonization and moving my family lost its history, which means I never got to connect with my culture. This is why I am so excited that more diverse books are releasing and I can’t wait to read more!
