Love Water - Venio Tachibana, Tooko Miyagi, Karen McGillicuddy I finished this novel in one sitting, I just couldn't put it down! Beautiful in so many ways... the illustrations are gorgeous and the depiction of old Japanese customs gives you a sense of solemnity. Great pace and nice character development, even though it's a short story. Just the right amount of romance and sadness to keep you sighing and swooning at the turn of every page.
