Authors are writing great Asian-inspired fantasy books. The myths, folklore, and fairytales of countries like India, China, and Japan are inspiring them. And I couldn’t be more excited! I love that the diversity of the genre is growing. So, on to my recommendations!
It’s important to stretch our boundaries and read authors outside of our usual picks. I think of it as reading harder. Instead of always picking up my go-to authors, sometimes, I step outside of which authors I usually read. It’s a great way to support and explore different cultures, beliefs and experiences. I’ve created a list of favorite books and authors that represent diverse perspectives.
