Memoirs, novels, and more from the AAPI community.

May is Asian American Pacific Heritage Month, which means it’s an extra special time to honor the achievements, traditions, and culture of the AAPI community. And while all of the above should be celebrated every day, the month is a great opportunity to learn more and immerse yourself in art, culture, and knowledge.

Books are an easy and accessible way to do that. To help with suggestions, Goodreads has compiled a list of popular new books by Asian American authors (those who self-identify as AAPI or are from the API diaspora). These books are ones that Goodreads members are loving and have added to their own reading lists. Take a look below and get reading!
