Japanese Summer Is Here...

As usual, I decided to join Bellezza's Challenge and this summer I will be reading these four supposedly great books. I am a fan of Kawabata's work, so I am looking forward to his last piece of writing "Dandelions"; two months ago I read Kawakami's "Strange Weather in Tokyo" and I really enjoyed it, so I am quite eager to discover a new novel "Nishino's ten loves"; "The Pillow Book" should be the 'kinky book" of the summer and I am also planning on rediscovering Tanizaki with his "Some prefer nettles". Will you care to join us? You only have to read one book written by a Japanese writer till January 2016.

I really liked Strange Weather in Tokyo, too, although my copy was titled The Briefcase. So strange to have such different titles...anyway, glad to know about Nishino's Ten Loves. I have The Pillow book somewhere on my shelf. I should read that, too. I think I even have Some Prefer Nettles. I've never read Tanizaki before, and I'm starting with his book Naomi this June. Looking forward to reading Japanese literature again with you, Ally!

I have read one or two books by Tanizaki before but I could not find yours to join you in the read along :) I am always looking forward to discovering great books together with you :)
