The Japanese Literature Challenge 6 was very special for me because it was the first reading challenge ever, I participated in. It was also the first one I ever finished (which actually wasn’t that hard because I was supposed to read only one book). Given the long period of the challenge (one entire year) I didn’t manage to read that much books. In the end there were only three novels, but these three have provided me with unforgettable reading hours. Here’s the list of my Japanese Reading Experience:
- Am Meer ist es wärmer von Hiromi Kawakami (the third book I read by the author was a bit more bizarre than the ones before, but nevertheless very nice)
- Kafka on the Shore by Haruki Murakami (loved it so much)
- and Haruki Murakami again with The Wind-up Bird Chronicle (an all-time favorite!)
Thank you, Bellezza, for hosting this inspiring challenge!
