Most Anticipated Asian Books

January 21, 2022

Asian influence is absolutely a trend in the upcoming releases of 2022 and I’m not mad about it. I adore Asian cultures – especially Japanese and Korean mythology and folklore. I’m a mixed kid so I’ve always been surrounded by different cultures. I grew up watching Bollywood movies, Anime, K-dramas and playing video games – all in different languages. To this day, I still prefer Asian food, music, TV shows, cartoons and books. So no, I am definitely not mad about this trend. If you’re new to Asian culture or mythology, just let these gorgeous covers seduce you. Each cover is a link taking you directly to the book’s Goodreads page for more details.

Here are my most anticipated Asian books (so far in 2022):ย
