I found what I believe is the most “me”-cover I have ever seen and so I consequently had to buy this novel.
Feast your eyes upon this:
It has a book, tea, pancakes, a deer, plants, flowers, sugar… all the things I love. As usual I don’t know what it is about, but with a beautiful cover and an interesting title, you know as well as I do that I am compelled to get it (*hoarding intensifies*)
I love the simplicity of the book underneath the cover, nothing fancy but yet beautiful. Also that they decided to put the title in English!
Maybe I should rename my blog to “Me gushing about beautiful Japanese books that I find”
Upon closer inspection I realize that it is not a full length novel but actually a short story collection. I find myself a bit disappointed but that is life. The cover is still beautiful and I am hopeful that all the stories will delight me, especially the title story 「サキの忘れ物」
