Japanese Literature Challenge 12 (State of the Challenge #2)


Find reading plans from Juliana at the [blank] garden, Nadia at A Bookish Way of Life, and Gnoe at Graasland.

Bee Honey by Banana Yoshimoto, Killing Commendatore by Haruki Murakami, and The Master Key by Masako Togawa are reviewed by Mel U of The Reading Life.

Birthday Girl by Haruki Murakami is reviewed by me.

Reminder to read The Pillow Book by Sei Shōnagon in February with Frances and I, if you would like to do so.

  1. Five reviews so far over at the blog (with another coming tomorrow). I aim to have eight reviews of new reads plus three or four rereads linked in my January wrap-up 🙂

    1. Wow, Tony, that’s a great lot accomplished! I will be sure to visit, comment, and link them all for this week’s update. As for me, I have only read two pieces since picking up Bánffy’s masterpiece (They Were Counted) which is magnificent and worth every one of its 600 pages. Fortunately, I finished last night so I can continue now with Japanese lit.
