I'm very excited to introduce the first FEATURED FRIDAY here on Auggie-Talk
The way that Featured Friday is going to work every month is as follows:
The first Friday of every month (today for example), I will introduce fully the Featured Author. I will offer links to official and fanbased websites as well as links on GoodReads and Amazon.
The post will include information about the author, why I enjoy them, and finally I will officially announce April's Featured Author GIVEAWAY
This month's featured author, as mentioned last Saturday, is
Official Website: http://www.harukimurakami.com
I honestly can't get enough of this guy, but I have to space my reading of his work out over a bigger stretch of time. That's mostly due to the fact that I'm not capable of handling too much of him all at once. In fact, there are frequently times when I have to sit down one of his books and just consciously step away from it. Give it space. Let it breathe. My head gets fuzzy and I start to feel a weird bit of creeping up my spine, as though someone is breathing much to close to the back of my neck.
I'll tell you all more about that later, but I must say that I'm extremely excited to feature this author and review some of his books for all of you. He is extraordinarily talented and can put together a story that is all at once eery, hilarious, meaningful, and disturbing.
If you ever want to give your brain a lovely break from reality while at the same time maintaining its intense exercise routine then Murakami is the author for you.
Warning: Not for the squeamish or easily disturbed. Murakami makes no apologies and is very gritty. This is not Y/A fiction. Just throwing that out there for you guys. Just in case.
For those of you who would like to follow along or who are in the middle of reading any of these books, I'm setting up a list of the three Murakami books that I will be reviewing this month as part of Featured Fridays.
The review schedule and books that will be reviewed are as follows:
Friday: April 13
Friday: April 20
Friday: April 27
