Japanese Literature Challenge 4 Wrap-up
12 February, 2011
I was so looking forward to Bellezza’s Japanese Literature Challenge 4 last year and had stashed away some books just for it so when it started, I think I got a little over-excited and couldn’t read as many books as I had planned. So let’s see what I did actually read:
Not too bad, especially since I loved 3 and although confused by Ishiguro’s novel felt it was still brilliant. I must say that Shusaku Endo is fast becoming a favourite of mine and I’ll definitely be reading more of his work, especially Silence which seems to have garnered some avid fans amongst book bloggers.
And I’ve only just realised that I’ve been harping on about the Japanese Literary Challenge instead of the Japanese Literature Challenge. Oops. Blame it on my overenthusiasm! Sorry Bellezza. Needless to say I’ll be waiting for the JLC5 with bated breath.
Have you read any exciting Japanese books lately and will you be joining the challenge again later this year?
