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.
- 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
- 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.
