I’ve recently become obsessed with the musical @hadestown, which retells the myth of Orpheus & Eurydice. So it felt like a good time for a #fandomfriday post featuring 1 of my oldest & greatest loves: Greek mythology. The Odyssey is legit one of my favorite stories & so I feel so blessed to have this new translation of it by Emily Wilson & a riff on the tale in CIRCE by Madeline Miller, whose 1st book THE SONG OF ACHILLES (about the Iliad) is an all-time fave!

LA friends! My darling @somaiiiya is stopping at @chevaliersbooks tonight to talk about her gorgeous debut MIRAGE! I’m sad I won’t be able to go tonight, but I’m so happy to see this book getting all the praise. It’s next on my TBR & I have no doubt it’ll be amazing bc Somaiya is brilliant!

My Waiting-on-Wednesday pick is the next issue of @sartorialgeek! They’re using Kickstarter to fund Issue 3, which is going to be all about SciFi & STEAM! Do support if you can! .
.
In the meantime, I’m enjoying flipping through this gorgeous summer issue graced with Jen Bartel’s beautiful art.

Like everyone else, I’m 😍😍😍 over @toalltheboysnetflix & threw a watch party last weekend as part of my birthday festivities! We had cookies & Asian snacks, as well as all the junk food and snacks from our own high school days! The best item was, of course, the yogurt drinks! I also finished the first book the week before the movie dropped & am so excited to continue the series!

Who else wants to be Lara Jean? Are you swooning over Peter Kavinsky? I adore them both so much & it made me so happy to see an Asian American girl at the center of such a sweet love story & coming of age story.

This #womancrushwednesday has to be dedicated to @kellymarietran & her #RoseTico. It meant so much to me to see an Asian American woman as a lead in a Star Wars film! And Kelly, outside of the films, was such a delightful & inspiring presence on social media before she had to leave for her own peace of mind. If you haven’t read her recent essay in The NY Times, I encourage you to read it. It’s honest & hits close to home for me in regards to what it’s like to be a WOC in this society. It’s society that needs to do better by us all.

(And extra #wcw shoutout to the author of COBALT SQUADRON, Elizabeth Wein, who wrote one of my fave books ever- Code Name Verity.)

Happy Friday! I’ve been so out of it, I missed #BookLoversDay & I thought I’d already posted about FURYBORN by @clairelegrand! Well, if you haven’t read this page-turning fantasy yet, make it your #FridayReads! .
.
I loved the dual timelines & discovering just how the 2 stories are linked. Just know that almost every chapter leaves you dangling & so you’ll probably lose sleep to the need to find out what happens next!
.
.
Oh and 🙌🏽 to women-centered stories & women doing what they want. (Hence the appropriate WonderWoman shirt pairing)

My favorite kind of #Sunday morning: coffee & good reads. Really enjoyed @lzcrowder’s short story in the Summer issue of @sartorialgeek.
.

What’s your perfect Sunday morning?

This anthology of reimagined Asian myth & folklore by Asian authors means so much to me. As a kid, I devoured classical mythologies but found it hard to access the myths of my cultural heritage. A collection like this would’ve meant the world to me then & means the world to me now.
.
.
And to quote Doctor Who, “we’re all stories in the end” & I’m glad we’re finally getting some opportunities to tell them ourselves.

Post Comic-Con got me in a time warp. It’s already the end of July, which means only a few days left to grab this #EdnaMode-inspired @jordandenenyc tee! It’s looking nice next to some of my most precious SDCC exclusives - @veschwab’s gorgeous STEEL PRINCE ashcan (signed!) & VICIOUS /VENGEFUL pins V gave me when I ran into her. Tesseract & Hall H wristband not included. 😉

Kell wore a very peculiar coat... but let’s be real, a lot of @veschwab’s characters have great taste in outerwear. (And all her book covers are stunning!!)
.
.
I’m so looking forward to the long awaited sequel to Vicious, VENGEFUL, & set in the Shades of Magic universe, I can’t wait to pick up an early preview of Victoria’s STEEL PRINCE comic at SDCC this week. #waitingonwednesday .

In the spirit of #SDCC week, I’m sharing a fangirl moment: meeting Garth Nix, author of one of my favorite fantasy books!! I’ve owned this copy of Sabriel since I was a sophomore in high school! This book signing (not at SDCC) was extra fun bc Katie of @elhofferdesign, who makes the coolest geek fashion, was there bc she’s also a HUGE fan of Sabriel & I got a peek of the Abhorsen-inspired designs she’s done for fun. 🤞🏽 that might be a future possibility!
.

And thx @seekellytse for snapping an actual insta-photo for me!
