May’s #OwnVoices Book Releases by Asian Authors

May shall be ending in a little over a week. Since the year has been zipping on by rather swiftly, it can be easy to miss all of the fantastic book releases that have been happening thus far. So, before the month has a chance to properly end, I wanted to share with you books by Asian authors that have either arrived already or shall be heading to your local bookshops in the final week.

Since there are quite a few titles on this list, rather than provide a snippet for each and every single one, I shall simply link their GoodReads pages. They are arranged in order of release.

If you are searching for some fantastic #OwnVoices Asian books to check-out from the library, to add to your personal collections, or maybe to purchase as a gift for a loved one, I recommend that you take a gander at these offerings.
