  1. Lol! Next year, Krystal, we should do the reading challenge. Still, my college friend is up to 34 books. I didn't like Changeless as much as I liked Soulless. It was still funny and I really enjoy the MC, but there were a few elements I didn't like as much. Looking forward to Blameless, though.


  2. Congrats! I'm only on my 4th book of the year. I liked your review on the \”When Half is Whole.\” I'm half Japanese and half European. I'm not certain what Multiethnic Asian American means. These days, I'm more used to the term \”diverse\” or \”multicultural\” which I think is a more common way to reflect upon our differences. Unless I'm considered old school by today's standard. lol


  3. Everyone has their own way of identifying themselves, depending on when and where they grew up. The book was absorbing and interesting, but yeah, I feel like \”Multiethnic Asian American\” is kind of favoring the Asian side.
