1Q84, Book 1 | Haruki Murakami
post image

My first book for 2019 is this #chunkster. It‘s the Q1 read for the #Reading1001 group at GR. This will be my first Murakami, very much looking forward to enter his crazy world. I‘m only five chapters in, but so far it‘s intriguing!

It also fit my #AtY2019 challenge for the #multipleperspective prompt. I plan to use book 1-3 for three separate prompts, haven‘t decided which ones for the next two though.


Marina_h I look forward to hear your finally judgement. Maybe I'll have to add it to my ever growing TBR 📚 4y
hilded @Marina_h I‘ll keep you posted 😊📚 4y
BookwormM It‘s a great book 4y

I am starting the next one of the #ToB2019 shortlist. With this book I also make a start with one of my 2019 reading challenges: GoodReads‘ Around The Year in 52 Books. I am looking forward to it - it has some really great prompts. Week 1‘s prompt is ‘A book that was nominated for or won an award in a genre you enjoy‘. As a Man Booker nominated book, this will fit that prompt perfectly!

Is anyone else doing #ATY2019?

Tove_Reads Been meaning to read it. Guess I‘ll do it in 2019. 4y

nomadreader I'm doing the challenge! Won't start until tomorrow at the earliest because my first pick will likely be a quick read! 4y
Liz_M I like a lot of the prompts for ATY2019, but I am not trying to do all of them and certainly not in order! 😁 4y
BarbaraBB @nomadreader Cool, I‘m going to follow your reading plans. What will your first pick be? 4y
nomadreader Glad to have someone to read along with! My first pick is . It's the first in a series I've been meaning to start for years. 4y
BarbaraBB @nomadreader A good one to start with, I think! 4y
BarbaraBB @Liz_M I‘d like to, but it will be challenging 😉 4y
Liz_M Good luck! I will, of course, look forward to see what you are reading! 😘 4y
Liz_M And, I forgot to consider Literary Fiction as a genre, so now I have many more options for this first prompt 😁 Off to look through lists of Intl Man Booker and Translated book awards 4y
BarbaraBB @Liz_M Oh great, I am looking forward to your choices! All classics 😉😘?! 4y
vivastory I'm looking forward to your thoughts on this one! 4y
hilded Yes, I am! My third year doing this, just started my first book for the challenge for the #multipleperspective prompt. 4y
