What I’m reading in January 2021

Hello and welcome to my first reading status of 2021! The new year began with a very prolific reading experience, as I read 5 books this month. A diverse blend of historical fiction, magical realism, and murder mystery! Interestingly, 3 out of the 5 books I read were written by Japanese writers! While I did not consciously choose to focus on books from Japan, I am so happy that I expanded my reading horizon.

The tales of Nordic gods, giants, elves and other beings: Norse Mythology by Neil Gaiman (book review)

The Norse Mythology is a collections of stories of Nordic gods, giants, elves and other beings. According to the myths, all beings live in Nine Worlds that are centered around the tree Yggdrasil. With so many worlds and types of beings, you can only imagine there's a lot happening in Yggdrasil 🙂

Books that prove life is better than fiction

Isn't it amazing how life finds a way to be better / stranger / more astonishing than what we can imagine? There are those unbelievable stories. And there are those captivating chronicles of nature, history, and human behaviour. Cheers to Non-fiction November! 🥂
