Book Gang Podcast Episode 31: Must-Read Books by Asian American and Pacific Islander Authors

Book Gang Podcast Episode 31: Must-Read Books by Asian American and Pacific Islander Authors

May is AAPI Heritage Month, and we want to celebrate these voices with a well-curated book stack. Kristin from Fables Books joins the show to talk about this month’s StoryGraph reading challenge and share some of their best picks for a memorable reading month.

I also bring a great book club selection, an under-the-radar book gem that swept me away, and debuts that pulled me out of reading slumps. This episode has you covered whether you are looking for your next fantasy adventure, YA romance, or historical fiction escape.

We want to remind our listeners that Fables is our partnered bookshop, and all of the links do go directly to their store. Remember, this shop also offers a used book collection. Please support our indie book shop.
