So I started learning japanese as third language because I thought it'd help in international business (chinese is fuck hard, jesus christ!).
Now I just know like 500 Kanji and basic grammar and am still studying further and I'd like to improve by reading and therefore ask you which novels would be understandable and enjoyable.

Thanks in advance!

What kind do you want novel to read?
Maybe, I can give you better advice because I live in Japan.

something with romance and adventure, maybe some fantasy too.
Nothing depressing though a little drama would be kinda good too.

why don't you try so-called light-novel?
some people think that these books are too light, but some of them are really well-written. it includes romance, adventure, humor, sci-fi, and so on.
If you love anime, these books would suite you.

I took Mandarin Chinese for 2 in a half years and I thought it was pretty easy =/ I think understanding the Kanji structure in japanese is a bit tough, actually. Speaking Japanese is a piece of cake, though~
