Heart and Seoul by Jen Frederick

This product was recommended by Cindy Corpis from SearchPeopleFree

Heart and Seoul is an engrossing, emotional, and stressful story that will have you gripped from the start, much like a K-Drama! This novel is a combination of women’s literature and romance. This book has a romantic element to it. However, it is not the story’s primary priority. Hara’s adventure is the focus of this novel. We get to experience what it’s like to be adopted from another country and live in the United States. We also learn a lot about Korean culture. Heart and Seoul places a greater emphasis on family dynamics and relationships. It’s about the secrets that individuals hold from one another, ostensibly to protect themselves and one another.

The Farm by Joanne Ramos

This product was recommended by Cindy Corpis from SearchPeopleFree

The Farm by Joanne Ramos is a monument to the strength of love—whether it’s love from a mother, family, friend, or self, the sacrifices we’re prepared to make for those we care about are unbreakable. Exceptionally timely and, at times, frightening. You wouldn’t put it down once you start reading it. The novel is enthralling. The reader is left thinking about what they would do in similar scenarios after reading this book, which presents a lot of pertinent ethical problems.

The Making of Asian America by Erika Lee

This product was recommended by Jamie Croft from DiscountsCode UK

The author has beautifully described the powerful history and the role of Asian Americans in American life. She has also described the recent hate crimes against Asian Americans. Moreover, the book itself is an eye-opener to understand America itself.

Minor Feelings by Cathy Park Hong

This product was recommended by Eden Cheng from PeopleFinderFree

In this book, Hong blends social and cultural criticism, as well as personal experience and family history in a fearless memoir that does well to expose a myriad of truths about racialized consciousness in the USA. She goes on to describe the term “minor feelings” as negative and dysphoric emotions that arise from the sediments of having to deal with racial experience on a daily basis and result from one’s perception of reality being constantly questioned or dismissed. As such, the book dives deep into the excruciatingly slow pace of the change of racial politics, as she goes on to speak on how racism toward Asian Americans is constantly regarded as inconsequential or nonexistent in such a vulnerable and provocative manner that it is enough to change how you think about the world.

On Earth We’re Briefly Gorgeous by Ocean Vuong

This product was recommended by Geninna Ariton from Trendhim

This book is is a letter from a son to a mother who cannot read. Written when the speaker, Little Dog, is in his late twenties, the letter unearths a family’s history that began before he was born — a history whose epicenter is rooted in Vietnam — and serves as a doorway into parts of his life his mother has never known, all of it leading to an unforgettable revelation.
