The Diversity Corner #2 : March Updates, Asian Representation, and April New Releases

Another discussion ? Ugh ! I know, but I couldn’t help it because being an Asian, this one’s important to me. This absolutely brilliant post by Puput @ sparkling letters discusses everything wrong with Asian representation in literature.

Let me know your thoughts down in the comments or head over to the original post and join the discussion there.
