January 2021 was a very prolific in terms of reading, especially reading Japanese authors! As part of the Japanese literature challenge, in this post I share 4 books I read this month, plus other recommendations and ideas.
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.
Shortlisted Booker 2020 historical fiction, Nordic mythology, and a disappointing eARC - my December reading in a nutshell. Next: Murakami!
