I know that I have been joining a lot of read-a-thons and I cannot be more excited about this one. As you probably know, I love Korean culture, music, dramas, and food, my love for them is what made me decide to join in the readathon.

This read-a-thon is created and c0-hosted by Monica Kim and Chloe and this is the second year that this read-a-thon is taking place. Koreadathon will take place from July 6th to 12th. It was created to expose books by Korean authors to the public and you know how much I live for representation.

Reading Challenges.

  • Read the group book – The Silence of Bones by June Hur
  • Read a book translated from Korean
  • Read a book with a person on the cover
  • Read a book featuring a diaspora Korean character
  • Read a book with Korean mythology

Life Challenges.

  • Make a Korean Recipe
  • Watch a Korean drama or film

Books I Plan on Reading

The Silence of Bones by June Hur which is both the group book and a book with a person on the cover (2)

Prophecy by Ellen Oh which is a book with Korean mythology (1)

I Believe in a Thing Called Love by Maurene Goo which is a book featuring a Korean diaspora character (I assume) (1)

The Plotters by Un Su Kim, Translated by Sora Kim-Russell which is a book that is translated from Korean (1)

I will be reading for four books in total and I will be watching Long Live The King Mokpo Hero which is a 2019 movie. I will also be making Korean glass noodles (Japchae).

Thanks for reading.

  1. I saw Chloe’s video for this recently and I’m thinking of taking part in it. I’m already taking part in two read a thons this month and I’m really enjoying them. I’m discovering some new books I haven’t read before and it’s a great way to keep me reading even when I sometimes don’t feel up for it. I like having a goal to read towards!
