I’ve been wanting to do this kind of post for a long time, but I never had the time or I never found one I really wanted to do. La Petit Muse does these types of challenges once in a while, and I have so much fun reading hers I thought it would be fun to do one myself. So I scoured Pinterest (I may have an addiction) for one I liked and I found this. It looked fun, so I thought, let’s try it.
If it’s too much for me to do this month, I won’t try to do one of these again, but I do enjoy putting up a short post daily!

I read so many great books last year! I delved into reading a lot of books on my TBR, and it’s hard to pick out one.

The Monkey King’s Amazing Adventures: A Journey to the West in Search of Enlightenment. China’s Most Famous Traditional Novel by Wu Cheng’en
One of four great Chinese classics, it was my first step into reading Chinese classical literature, and I loved it! The Monkey King is a hilarious character and I was really impressed by this translation!
Alright. Day one is done! Twenty-nine more to go. Let me know want you think of these types of posts and if you read this book!
