July Bookmeter Stats

I didn’t get a lot of book reading done last month.  I blame Wikipedia and Japanese mythological creatures for being so interesting.

The third volume of Bakuman was really good. No surprises there.

あなたも殺人犯になれる! was a really easy read. It’s about a group of people who take a course called あなたも漫画家になれる! However, a serial killer who recently escaped police custody ends up at the same lodge where the group of aspiring mangaka is staying. A badly-timed storm makes sure the people are trapped and unable to call for outside help.  I’d recommend this, and 赤川次郎 in general, to people who are still new to reading novels since a lot of his stories are dialogue-heavy and use simple vocabulary.

    I didn’t get much reading done in July either. I just read casually, and was more focused on watching movies. But, the mini Tadoku round is this month. I’m excited!

    • As am I! I’m going to see how much I can read while traveling out of state to see friends.

      Thanks for the comment, Rachel!
