I didn‘t expect to love this book as much as I did. Tears were had (several times). Highly recommended!

Love this graphic novel! The witty banter, and the gorgeous illustrations and colourings. Can I also add that I think this is my first time reading anything magical with the MCs of Asian descendants. #mooncakes #netgalley

Even though poetry is not my cup of tea, i truly enjoyed this. Had a couple of hours free with no distractions, what better way to spend my Friday afternoon, sipping hot tea with this as a companion.

This collection of poetry is beautiful, especially with the illustrations by Chris Riddell. I can foresee myself re-reading this again and again in the future.

4 stars ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

TrishB I love this collection. 2mo

Found a copy of the ARC at Portobello‘s Oxfam back in May. Finally got around to reading it this weekend and I‘m kicking myself why I didn‘t read it sooner. It‘s hard to put this down once read the first twenty pages.

Volume 2 is just so sweet! And those blushes, I wish these books are in colour. I normally avoid reading novels or watching shows where the main plot is school-based, but for this series, I don‘t mind.

Killing Commendatore | Haruki Murakami

An idea, a metaphor and a double metaphor walks into a bar and Killing Commendatore was created.

After hearing so many bad reviews, I was sightly reluctant to read KC. Even though it took me a lot of tries of starting and putting it away over a span of 10 months, I finally managed to pick and complete this book during a slow week at work.

Do I love KC? Definitely no, but it‘s definitely not the worst book I‘ve read.

3.5/5

BooknerdsLife Yeah!!!! You finished it!!! 👍🏼🎉🎉🎉 Wish I could say the same 😆 And great review! 👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼 3mo

I don‘t think I can truly review this book without tearing up. That famous photo taken by the beach keeps flashing while I was reading this.

Mehso-so

Started the year by reading something easy and light. I saw a photo of this book by random on Instagram and thought why not. If you‘re looking for an easy chick-lit read, I would recommend this.
