Dolce Bellaza is hosting the Japanese Reading Challenge from the 1st June 2010 to the 30th January 2011.
Between these six months the idea is to challenge yourself to read more books by Japanese authors and review each book you read.
Once you have read a book you can link your review here.
This is my first time taking part in the challenge and I’m glad I have been able to discover it in time. I have been meaning to explore more authors from Japan for a long time and this feels like a great way to discover new authors and new books.
I have only so far, read two Japanese authors: Haruki Murakami and Kirino Natsuo and I have enjoyed both. I have a Ryu Murakami coming up to read soon and will also be re-reading Kafka on the Shore by Haruki Murakami at some point this year too.
I look forward to sharing some brilliant reads within the next six months.
