State of the Bookshelf Address: eBooks [Vol. 1, 2019]

Howdy-do, guys, gals, and non-binary pals! Welcome back to my State of the Bookshelf Address, a three-part section on this blog where I list down everything – and I mean everything – that I have on my TBR.

Last time, I did the physical books edition whereI talked about all the physical books on my shelf that I had to get around to reading. I’ve gotten around to reading a handful of them, but I’m afraid I’ve still got quite a few more to get through.

Anyway, this edition will be talking about the eBooks I’ve amassed over time which I have yet to read. (Which are…well…the phrase ‘a lot’ would be an understatement.)

[Book Review] Crier’s War – Nina Varelas // a philosophical look at what makes us human

It’s been over a week since I finished reading this.

I.

HAVE NOT.

STOPPED.

SCREAMING.

I was already expecting a lot from Crier’s War because so many book bloggers whose opinions I trust loved it and couldn’t stop raving about it. So you can imagine how pleased I was that not only did this book meet my expectations, it fucking surpassed them! Read on to find out why!

[Book Review] The Dragon Warrior – Katie Zhao // a love letter to Chinese culture

Let me tell you, it was absolutely NOT easy to get reading done in between the absolute hellish week I had – but it was all worth it. I won’t bore you with descriptions of how I was positively buried under wild amounts of work this week, but suffice it to say that I absolutely felt it necessary to sacrifice some things (like sleep lol) just to get some reading in. That’s how much I adored this book.

But enough about me and my woes! Let’s get on with the review!

(As always, thank you Shealea @ Shut Up, Shealea for having me on this tour, and for always boosting Asian authors!)
