Happy new year, friends! I’m pretty excited because I decided that 2022 is the year I finally make a dent in my TBR pile and read my bookshelf. I started off with owning 399 unread paper books and ebooks combined, and I’m determined that by the end of the year I’ll be much, much closer to 300.
Young adult books set in college, or even about the summer before college, aren’t all too common. That’s why I was surprised when I first learnt that American Panda is set at MIT. Well, Mei is 17 years old as she enters a year early but it works out well for this book. Mei had a sheltered upbringing, which is very evident as she tries to find her place at university.
Hi, hello, welcome! If you’re a fellow Bout of Books participant, worried about the non-existent TBR pile, you’re not alone! I don’t have any, and am just about managing to read a chapter on the first day. On the upside, there are six more to go.
