5 books read this month, and what a mix of bookish experiences - I "travelled" from the UK (Oxford) and Turkey (Istanbul) to Australia and New Zealand, then to Japan, Uganda, and even North America! Not bad for a month spent entirely at home 🙂
The Living Sea of Waking Dreams is about grief, anger, and a vanishing world. A slow but sure collapse. It is one of the most anchored to reality books I read in a while, and also one of the most touching stories.
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.
