    I'll be honest... I didn't finish this. But not because it was bad! I thought it was adorable. Kimi (btw that's my name too), a Japanese-American with a first-generation Japanese immigrant mom (that's mine too) and a fourth-generation Japanese-American dad, is worried about her crea...

    Holy mochi mochi. 'I Love You So Mochi' is, without a doubt, one of the cutest books I've ever read. If a book could be a yogurt dessert filled with candy and compressed into one giant actual mochi that you could just bounce on like jelly and have a swim inside it, that wouldn't eve...

    I'm soft, giddy and grinning like an idiot. What a cute book. Starting from the title, to the cover, to the story! So adorable. Sometimes reality intrudes on what we want. That?s just the way it is. Kimi had her life perfectly planned. Or you can say her mother did. She jus...
