In January I read six books for January in Japan. I had hoped to read more, but I was too busy and tired to get much reading done. I also intended to post more (I had at least three great post ideas) but sadly that wasn’t happening either. Honestly I wasn’t sure I was going to do this wrap-up…
I did write a guest post over at the January in Japan blog, a J-Lit Giants post featuring Fumiko Enchi!
Read in January
- The Strange Library by Haruki Murakami
- Summer, Fireworks, and My Corpse by Otsuichi
- Manazuru by Hiromi Kawakami
- The Budding Tree by Aiko Kitahara
- Genocide of One by Kazuaki Takano
- Masks by Fumiko Enchi
A small book haul. I intended to read the Japanese literature in January but alas.
Why did I get Murakami’s Sputnik Sweetheart in Dutch when I already own and read it in English? Well…
Plans for February
I have no special plans for February. I’ve got two eARCs that I’ll probably read, and I might continue reading Harry Potter 😉
