Regardless of what book genres you generally seek out, there are always opportunities to expand your horizons and educate yourself while doing something you actually like. From Celeste Ng to Jimmy O. Yang, Asian-American authors are transforming the literary landscape across the board, in every genre.
This year, make a point to increase the levels of diversity within the literature you read. You may learn something new about a culture you didn't know anything about and therefore be better able to relate to people of that culture, and isn't that what we're all trying to do here? The easiest way to get these connections started is to find an essay collection, novel, or memoir by an Asian-American author to get you going.
