    Summary

    “The fuck is this dude listening to an audiobook of Prayer X for?!”

    He must have said that louder than he needed to because the track thankfully paused. Unfortunately, a few seconds later, a head poked out of a window and yelled. “What is your deal with audiobooks?!”

    Dark eyes were now staring at him, black hair, round face. It was glaring at him, half-lit by the light from his window.

    It absolutely caught Ash off guard, not expecting to be called out for it. First off he had nothing against it. Audiobooks were good, they were accessible, they were soothing when read properly. Second, how was he supposed to know his neighbor was at hearing range and was absolutely defensive about audiobooks? Third, it wasn’t anything about the audiobook, it was about who wrote it. Which was Ash, also read by Ash, therefore by default made him cringe.

    Now Ash should give a coherent response. He should, but all he could say was—

    “Hey, you’re stir fry kid from a while ago.”

    Summary

    The New York Times had called He Xuan’s second book phenomenal. Ming Yi branches out into the realm of the fantastical in this show-stopping sophomore effort. Kirkus left a starred review on the third.

    “You know,” she says. “Every time I finish something I think it’s the best thing I’ve ever written.”

    “That’s a good thing,” says Shi Qingxuan, the earnest witch. “It means you’re improving.”

    Summary

    There are times Kazuya all too easily gets swept up in Sawamura’s desires, going along with whatever he wants and if he stopped at all to really think about what was going on, he’d be able to see that he was, for lack of a better word, whipped. But he doesn’t stop and doesn’t dare dredge up any feelings, let alone his own. Friends with benefits is a simple concept, one doesn’t need to be a genius to understand that.

    So why, sitting next to Sawamura on his couch and a baseball game playing on the TV before them, does he have a gut-clenching mixture of apprehension and yearning swirling within him?


    Miyuki Kazuya has been struggling with his writing while Sawamura Eijun has just been struggling. A chance event and a seemingly insignificant choice have Kazuya’s life turning into the very same kind of cliche that he writes about. The only catch is that this is real life and who’s to say he’ll get to write the kind of ending he wants?

    Summary

    “It is not like pepper! That’s it. Get the phone. Call Ygritte.”

    Jon sighed heavily and grabbed her cell phone from the kitchen table and unlocked it. In her contacts, she had Jon in the number one spot, her parents were number two and Ygritte was number three. When they had been dating, Jon had borrowed her phone to look up something and he had discovered that Ygritte had been number one. That had led to a ridiculous fight between them but in the end, Jon was moved to the number one spot and yes, that was an important victory in his book.

    Summary

    “Not all the stories have the happy ending we imagine, but it doesn’t mean the process of telling them doesn’t matter,” she says.

    “Well,” a voice chimes in, breaking the silence. “That’s sad, though.”

    It’s a knife to her heart and for a moment she can’t do anything but gasp, because this voice–

    It reminds her so much of Ben’s.

    “It is,” she convenes. “Sometimes that’s the only ending we get, though.”
