A review by chocococo
The Cat Who Saved Books, by Sōsuke Natsukawa

adventurous lighthearted medium-paced
  • Plot- or character-driven? Character
  • Strong character development? Yes
  • Loveable characters? No
  • Diverse cast of characters? No
  • Flaws of characters a main focus? Yes


It's got an interesting premise but the writing can feel repetitive, it is very tell, don't show and the pacing feels of. Neither the main character nor the love interest feel like actual teenagers. All in all just wasn't for me. I think this book would have a better time finding the right audience with a middle grade tag.
