Wild Ones by Kiyo Fujiwara – I buzzed through this shojo series last month or so, and it’s the most fluffliest thing I’ve come across in a while. It follows the main character Sachie, whose mother passes at the beginning of the book. Her estranged grandfather shows up at the funeral and offers her a place to stay… and turns out, he’s a yakuza boss. You’d think it’d be gritty and dark, and maybe at points it touches on that? But everyone at the house are goofballs and Sachie just has to put up with their shenanigans. It’s cute.
The Turn of the Key by Ruth Ware – Thriller is a bit outside my usual genre, but I’ve heard this one talked about over and over again, and I’m very interested. I think if my library has it, I’ll definitely pick it up.
O Maidens in Your Savage Season by Mari Okada – This is both lighthearted and deals with serious themes, and I love it. The main group of characters are four girls in a literary club together, and they’re just wonderful – if realistic – friends. They have misunderstandings, and since they’re all dealing with new things, they’re both scared to be vulnerable with each other, and depend on each other for that support. It’s a really nice dynamic for them all, I think.
Island of Giant Pokemon by Tracey West – Man, does this series bring back memories. I read it all the time as a kid, and thinking about it makes me warm and fuzzy.
Might be cheating, but literally any character from Food Wars by Yuto Tsukuda. Really, it’s about a bunch of peeps in culinary school. I’d eat any of their food, dammit.
Wotakoi by Fujita – I love this series, man. It’s just so damn cute, and it was easily a five star read for me. I loved it!
And that’s it! I tag Katy @BookbinderWay
