📚📚 Read every day challenge - Winter 2022 ☃❄

Summary post

January 30 update:
Today I finished reading 時をかける少女. Overall, I quite liked the book, and had a fun time reading it, even though it wasn’t exactly easy. I guess I really caught the flow a few chapters in, after I stopped looking up every unknown word – before that it was more tedious than enjoyable.

From what I heard, in terms of language complexity this is one of the easiest Japanese books known to humanity that isn’t aimed at elementary school kids, and as such providing some entertainment value. Considering that it was still quite challenging for me, I’m wondering if there’s anything else I can read that’s around this level. One plausible option seems to be また、同じ夢を見ていた (it’s actually rated a bit easier than 時をかける少女 on both Natively and jpdb), but from some reviews I’ve seen I’m not convinced that I would like the story and/or style… :thinking:

Anyways, I think I’ll first read some manga for a change of pace, and research my options in the meantime.
