Stuff on My Shelf
I can’t really decide on which books, so I guess I’ll pull out random books from my shelf! Not that I own that many books – I mostly borrow from the library. The books I do own are mostly for school courses.

The Heart Goes Last by Margaret Atwood

The Republic by Plato

Ah, the early Naruto days when everybody had reasonable powers.
I Wanted to Miss Someone Strongly by Mitsuyo Kadota and Sanai Masafumi
Atmospheric Japanese prose doesn’t really try to make a point.
The Girl in the Roof by Jiro Akagawa
The piano-playing neighbour happens to be a chainsaw murderer and a ghost. (I think that’s what it’s about anyways – I’m too scared to finish it)
To continue the fun…
Only if you feel like it, obviously~
