Join the Chinese Book Club

I recently discovered that there is actually an online Chinese book club. Every month, they will have a Chinese book that they’ll read. This month is a book called  那些年,我们一起追的女孩. According to the reddit post, the book is about 79,000 characters long with about 2500 unique characters. I would recommend those that are between intermediate level to advanced Chinese readers to try reading the book. If you’re a beginner you’re also welcome to try, but it may be difficult to jump right into this level of book. You may end up having to look up most of the words, but you’ll also be able to pick up many words aswell! 

In the reddit post, they have multiple versions of the book, so you don’t even have to pay for the book. There’s also the links to purchase the book through amazon. I personally like the feel of a physical book in my hand, so physical books are usually my go to option.

Here’s a description of the book:

Traditional:

國中生柯景騰成績很差而且調皮搗蛋,班主任於是想出一個辦法來提高他的成績和管束他,把他託付給成績優秀的女生沈佳儀來管理。沈佳儀的管制和約束,使得柯景騰的成績步步高升,越來越好,同時柯景騰也愛上了這個成績優秀、長相美麗的女生。

Simplified:

国中生柯景腾成绩很差而且调皮捣蛋,班主任于是想出一个办法来提高他的成绩和管束他,把他托付给成绩优秀的女生沈佳仪来管理。沈佳仪的管制和约束,使得柯景腾的成绩步步高升,越来越好,同时柯景腾也爱上了这个成绩优秀、长相美丽的女生。

Secondary school student Ko Ching-tung is a troublemaker with terrible grades. To deal with this, his teacher comes up with a way to increase his grades and keep him in check: by placing him under the supervision of honour student Shen Chia-yi. Under Shen Chia-yi’s supervision, Ko Ching-tung’s grades gradually improve. Over the course of all this, Ko Ching-tung also begins to fall in love with the beautiful honour student.
