  2. It looks like a great reading month! I will be very interested in your review of Out by Natsuo Kirino. I know that it is a very popular book, but I have been on the fence for ages whether to read it or not. In particular, I wonder how it handled the portrayal of yakuza since goodreads states: there is a “a convincing glimpse into the grimy world of Japan’s yakuza”. Really interesting. Your cats are amazing too!


  3. I had no idea you would read a Middle Grade book? I don’t know why I made that assumption. I really want to try Anna James’ book because I love her, but Middle Grade is so hard for me to get into. Definitely might try it now. ALSO, we are immensely grateful for the cat photos, now improved.
