Books With Asian Settings
I have an extensive collection of Asian inspired books so this list wasn’t easy, but here you go!
I have read part of this series when I was younger and have plans to revisit it again. We follow 2 MCs both on seperate journeys but toward each other none the less. The writing style is beautiful and the story is slow yet kept my attention, the only reason I didn’t finish it was because I didn’t own the series. I do now though!
I know this will not be the easiest of reads, but it’s on the list as it is going through the ages as a classic. I have yet to watch the movie however I am not sure if I even will. It’s not leaving my shelves till I have read it.
I have read the first of this series and the writing is just perfect for the setting, the world building and magic system are intricate yet easy to follow. This is going to be a dark, gritty series that honestly made me gasp on more than one occasion.
This is a true story about the life of a geisha and again, it won’t be the easiest of reads but its a true account of being a geisha and that is something I would love to learn more about.
I. Love. This. Series. I’m about to finish Soul Of The Sword and OMG! If you like fantasy, anime/manga, and Japanese mythology these books are for you! We follow Yumeko, who is a kitsune, given a mission to ensure the dragon scroll does not fall into the wrong hands. On her mission she picks up a few companions, a Ronin, a samurai, a shrine maiden and a member of the Shadow Clan with an enchanted sword! I am saying nothing else for fear of ruining this story for you!
