きらきらひかる / Kira Kira Hikaru (Twinkle Twinkle / 반짝반짝 빛나는
By 江國 香織 (Kaori Ekuni)

They got married ten days ago. They haven’t had sex yet and they don’t intend to. 

As it turned out, the only way to make their parents get off their backs about trying to “find someone” was actually finding someone–with whom to put marriage for show. Mutsuki is strictly gay and has a boyfriend, while Shoko is a clinical case of emotional instability who’s in no shape for a relationship. They’ve each found in the other a perfect partner for a sham marriage. Since the conspirators’ parents know of their own child’s undesirability, but not the spouse’s, the union manages to please them. And while the newlyweds hope, in their own way, to live happily ever after, they inevitably come face to face with the fact that no marriage real or staged, is a fairy tale. - © goodreads

I'm sorry if someone already asked you this but... what kind of Japanese books do you read ? (Literature) Btw I really like your blog ♡

Thank you😄
Do you mean in Japanese or just by Japanese authors? I’ll do both just in case~

It is probably no secret that I like Murakami Haruki, he is the reason I studied Japanese (for such a simple reason that I wanted to read him in his own language, and even so I have yet to read any of his novels in Japanese^^;;) So I have read all of Murakami’s works in English, and in Japanese I have read his essays (that I plan on trying to translate for practice)

I’ve also read (in English) a lot of Ogawa Yoko, Yoshimoto Banana, Murakami Ryu, Kawakami Hiromi (Strange weather in Tokyo), Mishima Yukio, Kirino Natsuo (Out), Kawabata Yasunari, Abe Kobo, Kanehara Hitomi (snakes and earrings), Ibuse Masuji (Black Rain), Hisashi Inoue (Tales from a mountain cave), Yoshida Shuuichi (Parade), Hiraide Takashi (The guest cat), Ekuni Kaori (twinkle twinkle), Tsutsui Yasutaka (The girl who leapt through time), Natsume Soseki etc

For what I have read in Japanese, the list is considerably shorter;
Hoshi Shinichi’s short stories
Murakami Haruki’s essays
Kawamura Genki’s If cats disappeared from the world
Some manga
I also got a book I thought was essays about reading, but it was just really boring (because I didn’t get what they were talking about^^;;) so I didn’t get very far with that one

Hope that answered your question!😊
