Japaneses June/july and other plans

Little ghost Creations, over at YouTube (BookTube) has laid down a challenge to her viewers and other BookTubers. She has challenged us to read Japanese literature in June.  Since,  I have a lot of work, fitting that description, on my TBR, I will be joining the challenge.  However,   given the number of works and their length,  this project will spill into July.  Here is my reading list.

Wind-up bird Chronicles Haruki Murakami

Colorless Tsukuru Tazaki and His Years of Pilgrimage Haruki Murakami

Out by Natsuo Kirino

Piercing Ryu Murakami

Popular Hits of the Showa Era  Ryu Murakami

Coin Locker Babies  Ryu Murakami

The Makioka Sisters by Jun’ichirō Tanizaki,

Strangers by Taichi Yamada

The Box Man Kobo


Forbidden Colours Yukio Mishima

Strange Weather in Tokyo Hiromi Kawakami

I will review each of these at my Blog (here and you can follow my progress at @vikzwrites on twitter. In addition, I have  two books that I have received from publishers for review.  Fable From PigeonHole and Jeremy Scot’s Ables.  So, a review of those two works will go up here some time in June
