30-Day Book Challenge: Day 01 – Best Book of 2017

Since today is the first day of a brand-new month, I decided it was time for me to participate in another 30-day challenge. My first one was the 30-Day Anime Challenge, which I thoroughly enjoyed and learned quite a bit from regarding my likes, dislikes, and ambitions as a blogger. It also made me realise that I find challenges like that to be pleasant as they work to evoke creativity from me, even when I feel I have nothing to offer. As such, I showed an interest in doing more challenges like it. So… here I am with my second 30-day challenge, this time a book-themed one that I came across on Pinterest.

30-Day Challenge Qs

Day 01: The best book you read last year.

I have three that I couldn’t decide from. The first is a young adult contemporary called The Pain Eater by Beth Goobie that explores rape culture after a young girl is attacked on her way home one evening and struggles to cope with her trauma as well as having to face her attackers in the school halls daily.

The second is The Abyss Surrounds Us Duology by Emily Skrutskie, which is a science-fiction series with a fantastically flawed F/F romance, a wonderful plethora of diversity, and tons of ass-kicking, pirate-infused shenanigans.

The third is an #OwnVoices Chinese historical fiction duology called Shanghai Girls by Lisa See that, at its core, is a story about the complexities involving the bond of sisterhood during a severe time of war (when Japan attacked Shanghai and partook in the Rape of Nanking), as well as what it means to be a mother—both biologically as well as an adopted one.

Thank you so much for visiting me today. Until next time, keep reading and keep otakuing. 💜
