Bookish for life

Anthropology graduate, anglophile, social justice activist, chocoholic, traveler and book lover from the German-speaking part of Switzerland, currently working in the renewable energy sector. Books have been my passion since before I could read.


Considering using this as a replacement for my Goodreads account, where I've been keeping track of what I read (audiobooks included). You can find a record of the dead-tree books I own on LibraryThing. As of now I haven't imported those yet.

Flying Fish

Flying Fish - Sedonia Guillone Short and sweet, a pretty straightforward love story between a ronin (a samurai without a master) and a kabuki actor-slash-prostitute. I especially liked how the author played with gender roles - while there's the strict separation between seme and uke (top and bottom), it seems as if Genji (the actor/uke) is explicitly gender-fluid, and expresses this without any censure from Daisuke (the ronin/seme).
