    • I’m going to try to keep my review spoiler free but I have THINGS TO SAY ABOUT THE ENDING…… AND THEY ARE NOT VERY POSITIVE. (Do you want me to just message you and tell you how it ends…?)

      And THANK YOU omg I WISH my cats were always photo ready when the reality is that I just spend a ridiculous amount of my time following them around.

  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.
