A man and a woman is found dead in the beach. Cyanide. It‘s concluded to be a lover suicide. But one of the detectives on the case doesn‘t believe this. Why would the man have eaten alone, wouldn‘t a woman in love have accompanied him even if it‘s just for a tea? So the investigation begins.

Even for those that don‘t read manga or watch anime Utena has become such a presence in mainstream culture. I really loved getting to go back to the beginning and see the original volume of stories and artwork that launched this character. #BBRCYeahBabyYaoiOrYuri @LibrarianRyan

I‘m worn out from an all day meeting today, so I‘m just sitting here in my bed reading The Buddha in the Attic.

A Single Rose | Muriel Barbery

This book touched my heart. Rose loses her unknown Japanese father and travels to Kyoto for his last will. She discovers the country, its culture and its people and all of this offers her the most beautiful way to mourn the father she never met. Thank you Cassie for bringing it to my attention! 🌹 🇯🇵

As someone working through grief from, I have found so many relatable moments in “Kitchen”. Grief is a fluid shapeshifter, now numbness, now change, now a void. This quote from “Kitchen” will stay with me: “An irresistible shift had put the past behind me. I had
recoiled in a daze; all I could do was react weakly. But it was not I who was doing the shifting—on the contrary. For me everything had been agony.”

JamieArc Welcome to Litsy! Someone else posted about this book recently and made me want to read it. I believe it was @batsy . I‘d recommend following her, as well as @LitsyEvents to get an idea of everything that‘s going on here. 2d
BarbaraJean Welcome to Litsy! This is such a lovely book. It helped prepare me for grief, in a way—I read it just a couple of months before my mother passed away. And looking back on the book now still feels comforting. 2d
batsy Welcome to Litsy! Thanks for the shoutout @JamieArc ! I love this book, too. It provided so much solace when I was working through grief, as well 💜 2d

I finally get to start a new book! COLD ENOUGH FOR SNOW looks to be one of those novellas that carries you through the story on a wave of quiet beauty.
