Please help me create a reading list. I want to get comfortable reading various types of literature in Japanese. So far I’ve read some manga but for pure reading practice I prefer stuff that doesn’t have supporting visuals.
I’m around N2 grammar-wise and my wk level is representative of my kanji knowledge but my vocabulary is shaky (I hope reading will help with it).
Nowadays when reading for fun I usually read nonfiction, such as interesting life stories, stories about discoveries, inventions and so on. But I like my fiction too, just don’t read much of it.
However, if it’s in Japanese I feel like I’d read almost anything, as long as it’s interesting and not too difficult.
So far I have a few titles on my list:
- I Want to Eat Your Pancreas
- Monogatari series
- Boogiepop series
But I don’t know many options. I’d greatly appreciate your recommendations. If you can please give your opinion of the reading difficulty too.
And if you can share how you’re looking for things to read I’d love to hear that!
