vietnamese books / authors


If you didn’t know, I’m a Vietnamese American, and I’ve always grown up desperately wanting Vietnamese representation in books. Over the years, more and more books that have Viet rep have been published, and I’d love to share them with other people who were (and are) like me, looking for rep.

Also, please note that I haven’t read everything on this list, nor is this a complete list. I’m always looking for more recs, so please message me if you have something to add (preferably by Vietnamese authors because I dislike having recommending books without knowing the quality of the rep)!
