READ ALL THE SOUTH ASIAN BOOKS // SARC 2020 Accountability Post & TBR & Recommendations

If you aren’t aware the lovely Fanna @ Fannatality and Nandini @ Novels & Nebulas have created the incredible South Asian Reading Challenge of SARC 2020.

It’s an opportunity to diversify your reading and your bookshelf, and as an avid reader of South Asian books, there are truly some gems that feature South Asian protagonists by South Asian authors. I’m so glad that Fanna and Nandini are doing this and I really hope you join. More specific information can be found here.

I read a lot of South Asian books regardless, but I am still excited to participate because there are still so many to read and many exciting books releasing in 2020. Basically, this is an accountability post, and I hope I’m a bit more accountable than with YARC. I think I read enough, but I never did any update or progress posts, we’ll see.

TBR: As there are so many South Asian books that I would love to read, this list is left to books already on my TBR. There are no upcoming releases on this list but know I am gonna try to read as many South Asian books as possible in 2020. And this is just a slice of my larger backlist TBR.
