Reading/Travel Vlog – Asian Readathon and New York City!

I finished 4 of the 5 challenges for the Asian Readathon and explored Manhattan in the first two weeks of the month. I’ve never made a travel vlog so I’m still figuring out how I want to edit them; if you have any tips or suggestions please let me know!

  1. Same! I wouldn’t have picked up the group book but so glad I did!
    You’re visiting Japan!!! SO cool <3 I was there about 2 years ago and it was beautiful.
    I've read a lot of Japanese work that is VERY introspective and thoughtful but made me mad. Tabahara Girls was a similar experience. (manga)
    loved getting to see some of NY!
    I'm pretty character driven as well, so that makes sense (Black Tides of Heaven)
    Last Book!! congrats!
    Awesome vlog <3

    1. Where did you go in Japan? I went in 2013 but only to Osaka and Kyoto.
      I heard a lot of people love Tabahara Girls but it made you mad? Why? I haven’t read any Japanese literature before so the style is new to me.
      I also haven’t read many novellas before so I wonder if I’m expecting too much of Black Tides of Heaven? It may just be too short of a book to get into character development much and maybe I just have unrealistic expectations 🤔
      Thank you 😁
