January wrap-up

January wrap-up

Monthly wrap-upIn 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

  1. The Strange Library by Haruki Murakami
  2. Summer, Fireworks, and My Corpse by Otsuichi
  3. Manazuru by Hiromi Kawakami
  4. The Budding Tree by Aiko Kitahara
  5. Genocide of One by Kazuaki Takano
  6. Masks by Fumiko Enchi

Book haul
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 😉

One thought on “January wrap-up

  1. Thanks to January in Japan, I have read some wonderful J-lit this month. I think my favorite was/is (still have a few pages left) The Stories of Ibis, and all in all January was a pretty great month. 🙂
