i do not receive any compensation for any reviews or mentions, and i usually purchase and acquire all books myself, unless otherwise noted. thank you to the publishers and authors who generously send me books! i appreciate it greatly.

i primarily read literary fiction, with an emphasis on korean and korean-american literature specifically and asian/asian-american literature in general — i will read anything written by a korean/korean-am and/or an asian/asian-american author, and i am a huge supporter of translation. i am also very interested in food writing, whether as journalistic writing, memoir, or cookbook (i read cookbooks like i read books, cover to cover, usually crying a little inside the whole way through because, omg, food, i love food).

all content is created by me, which includes but is not limited to all writing and all photographs. please do not take or post elsewhere without permission. thank you.
