2015 Monthly Picks

January

The Housekeeper and the ProfessorAlthough I read a few books this month I only found time for one review so that makes The Housekeeper and the Professor by Yoko Ogawa my book of the month! However, despite it having no competition, I did really enjoy it and I think it’s an accessible example of Japanese literature for Westerners looking to dabble. Read my review here.

February

LaurindaI read and reviewed five books this month. I feel like I’m in a reading slump at the moment and don’t know if I’m doing all the review titles justice. I found Laurinda to be an enjoyable page turner so it gets my vote this month. Read my review here.
