My Go-To Lo-fi Playlists

One of the major reasons that I have been able to really get anything that I needed done throughout these last few months has been because of lo-fi music. Lo-fi music is sound productions that have slight imperfections to them that would be considered errors in traditional scores. These “imperfections” become intentional in lo-fi music and become integral parts of the listening experience. These lo-fi … Continue reading My Go-To Lo-fi Playlists

Time For a Catch Up

I don’t know how many times I’ve sat down and tried to write a new blog post these past few months. I’ve started, stopped, and deleted so many different posts that I’ve lost count of how many I’ve tried to write. So, instead I’m starting small and writing a simple catch up post instead of trying to wax poetic about how horrible and devastating 2020 … Continue reading Time For a Catch Up

Poetry Recs by AAPI Authors | 2020 Edition

Before I get to my poetry recommendations I want to start this post by talking about what has happened over the last few days in the U.S. and Canada. We’ve seen an outcry for justice for Black Americans and Canadians who have died at the hands of, what are an increasingly, militarized police forces. These protests are the culmination of pain, trauma, and injustice from … Continue reading Poetry Recs by AAPI Authors | 2020 Edition

Graphic Novel & Comic Recs by AAPI Authors | 2020 Edition

Graphic novels and comics are a medium that has regularly been part of my reading life for the past few years. It’s a medium that I love reading, and one that I think everyone should try. It’s also the one medium that seems to help the best when I’m stuck in a reading rut and need to that extra injection of energy to get me … Continue reading Graphic Novel & Comic Recs by AAPI Authors | 2020 Edition

Sci-Fi/Fantasy Recs by AAPI Authors

Science fiction and fantasy is a genre that I have loved since I was a child – they are the stories that took me to other worlds and introduced me to magic, folklore, witches, vampires and so much more. While I haven’t been reading as much SFF as I have in the past few years, it is still a genre that sits among the top … Continue reading Sci-Fi/Fantasy Recs by AAPI Authors

YA Recs by AAPI Authors | 2020 Edition

The world of young adult novels is a world in which I used to solely inhabit, but, as with time and age, I slowly started venturing away from YA and exploring different genres and fell out of devotion with the genre. I will usually pick up and read a YA novel here and there, and most of the YA novels that I do pick up … Continue reading YA Recs by AAPI Authors | 2020 Edition

Romance Recs by AAPI Authors | 2020 Edition

Non-Fiction Recs by AAPI Authors | 2020 Edition

Next up in my updated recommendation list of books written by AAPI authors in non-fiction. I never read much non-fiction when I was younger, but the older I get the more interested I’ve become in the genre, and in particular, memoirs. Here’s the link to my original 2018 post of non-fiction books recommendations written by AAPI authors [link]. Again, these are my recommendations for books … Continue reading Non-Fiction Recs by AAPI Authors | 2020 Edition

Fiction Recs by AAPI Authors | 2020 Edition

About two years ago I wrote several blog posts dedicated to recommending books written by AAPI authors – ranging from romance to non-fiction and everything in between. To commemorate this year’s Asian Heritage Month in Canada and Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month in the U.S., I’m going to be posting an updated list of recommendations of books written by AAPI authors. These are … Continue reading Fiction Recs by AAPI Authors | 2020 Edition
