May #LOPBuddyRead Books!?!?

༒༒༒

❥ Hi loves…me again with the super weird ideas! Next month I’ve decided to be a little different (just like this month). There are TWO LOPBR books, but here’s the catch…(whispers) you don’t have to read both. You can choose to read one or both. Whatever works for you. Like usual, at the end of the month we will chat about them. That’s all 🙂 DM or Comment if you want to join!✨

❥ #StrangeWeatherInTokyo By: Hiromi Kawakam

Synopsis: Tsukiko, thirty–eight, works in an office and lives alone. One night, she happens to meet one of her former high school teachers, “Sensei,” in a local bar. Tsukiko had only ever called him “Sensei” (“Teacher”). He is thirty years her senior, retired, and presumably a widower. Their relationship develops from a perfunctory acknowledgment of each other as they eat and drink alone at the bar, to a hesitant intimacy which tilts awkwardly and poignantly into love.

❥ #MilkFed By: Melissa Broder

Synopsis: Rachel is twenty-four, a lapsed Jew who has made calorie restriction her religion. By day, she maintains an illusion of existential control, by way of obsessive food rituals, while working as an underling at a Los Angeles talent management agency. At night, she pedals nowhere on the elliptical machine. Rachel is content to carry on subsisting—until her therapist encourages her to take a ninety-day communication detox from her mother, who raised her in the tradition of calorie counting. Early in the detox, Rachel meets Miriam, a zaftig young Orthodox Jewish woman who works at her favorite frozen yogurt shop and is intent upon feeding her. Rachel is suddenly and powerfully entranced by Miriam—by her sundaes and her body, her faith and her family—and as the two grow closer, Rachel embarks on a journey marked by mirrors, mysticism, mothers, milk, and honey.

❥ With Love, LOP 🙂
