Goodbye Tsugumi

Readalong #1

Readalong #1: Announcement

As a lover of Japanese authors and Japanese fiction this is something I’ve wanted to start for a while, so here we are.

All of these books I gave 5 stars. If you haven’t read Japanese authors before, these are the ones I would really recommend giving a go. I still have a lot of books from each of these authors left to read so I will probably make more of these lists in the future. If you have any favourite Japanese authors or books that aren’t on this list, please feel free to leave me a recommendation in the comments and I will check it out.
