Dolce Bellezza‘s Japanese Literature Challenge 3 finished as of the end of January and what a wonderful challenge it was. I didn’t really need any convincing to join the challenge as my past experiences of reading Murakami and Natsuo Kirino made me really interested in reading more, however it was a great excuse to read more!
I read two books for the challenge both of which I loved. You can read my thoughts by clicking on the titles.
Looking back I suppose I missed out on trying new authors that I hadn’t read before so that will be my next goal for the Japanese Literature 4. It starts in July so that gives me plenty of time to plan my selection.
Because I like pictures in my posts, here are a couple of pictures from my trip to Japan last February:
What (if any) Japanese authors have you read and who would you recommend?
