MICHELLE: I’ve just learned that the tenth and final volume of The Night Beyond the Tricornered Window came out last Tuesday so obviously I must make that my pick this week. I love BL with lots of non-romantic plot and boy, does this qualify. In fact, there hasn’t really been any romance at all. I’d be surprised if that changes, as this final volume will presumably be fraught with curses and cult leaders.
KATE: I think Anna said it best when she described HIRAETH -The End of the Journey as “the type of critically acclaimed work that I think I will read but don’t get around to because I’m not in the mood for despair right now.” That sounds about right–I certainly want to support the author of Our Dreams at Dusk, but I’m not sure if I handle anything more serious than The Way of the Househusband at the moment.
ASH: HIRAETH is definitely something I’ll be keeping an eye out for if it ends up being released in print. Meanwhile, I’ll make Josee, the Tiger and the Fish my pick this week, though it sounds like another volume that you might need to be in the right mood to read.
ANNA: My pick for this week is my stack of unread manga!
