I feel really lucky sometimes because I won another giveaway, and it’s a great one! In my life I’ve won four giveaways but I used to find many four leaf clovers so maybe that has something to do with it.
I actually don’t think there’s a correlation LOL.
The giveaway I won this time was hosted by our fellow blogger friend, Neha, who runs Biblio Nyan, a blog on books, anime, self-care tips, and more. I won their 500 follower giveaway and got a $30 gift card to buy any books of my choosing from Book Depository or Amazon. I got FIVE books from Book Depository!
1. Edogawa Rampo’s Japanese Tales of Mystery and Imagination
Jon recommended this book to me a while back so I’m happy that I finally own it! I read one of the short stories called The Human Chair, and it was honestly the most interesting story I’ve read in my life. I might blog about it one day, and write about Junji Ito’s version of it as well.
2. Edgar Allan Poe’s Tales of Mystery and Imagination
I’ve been borrowing my friend’s Poe book for months so I’m happy that I finally own my own copy.
3. Monkey by Wu Cheng’en
This book is also known as Journey to the West and is one of the Four Great Classical Novels of Chinese literature. This story was published in the 16th century and many anime, including Dragon Ball, were loosely based on this story. Some of the earliest Japanese animation were inspired by the Chinese animation of Journey to the West.
4. Desire by Haruki Murakami
Haruki Murakami is one of my favourite authors. I’ve read a number of his books. This is a collection of his short stories.
5. Edgar Allan Poe’s Tales of Mystery and Imagination
I’m giving this one to a friend.
I’m honestly surprised by how many books I got. When I found out that I won, I thought that I would get two books so this really exceeded my expectations. The books were delivered in a timely manner and I’m really happy with everything. Thank you so much Neha for everything. ❤
