Book Review & Aesthetic: Tokyo Ever After by Emiko Jean

Tokyo Ever After is one of my new favorite books. It was validating to me in a way I never expected it to be. It’s the book I’ve been waiting for ever since I watched The Princess Diaries as a kid when I thought only white girls could become princesses. Something I don’t think anymore. Thank you Emiko Jean.

The Ones We’re Meant to Find was a book that is going to stick with me for quite a long time. The twists and turns were executed so well, and the prose was absolutely stunning. The way the prose and the story flowed like water, made me feel like I was lost at sea — or rather, lost in the book.
