  • Such a great read!

    I came across Tokyo Ever After when I saw it on Reese’s Book Club, and I am so glad I did! This is the first I’ve read by Emiko Jean, but it won’t be the last. The idea that Izumi Tanaka finds out that she’s a long-lost princess of Japan seemed far-fetched, and I wondered how that was going to play out over the course of the story without sounding utterly ridiculous. I worried for nothing. Izumi is the perfect kind of girl character. She’s confident in who she is as a person, she’s smart and clever, she’s funny, and she’s fiercely loyal. But how that translates to the Japanese culture and the imperial family is what makes the story so engrossing. She’s grown up in northern California in a small,, predominantly white town, often feeling as if she’s too Japanese. Her best friends feel the same way, all of them of different Asian descents. Together, however, they are everything that’s good about female friendship. And they support her in every way when her world is tipped upside down with the discovery that her father is the Crown Prince of Japan. Izumi hopes that she’ll find that other part of herself in Japan, her Japanese side. And she does, to a point. But she also discovers that she just might be “too American.” The journey she goes on with her new family, and herself, was everything I want in a book. And the romance… it was beautiful, even if slight instalove and slightly fluffy. It was perfect for the moment when you just need something good and pure and right, This is a story about friendships and love, about loyalty, about finding yourself, and finding the courage to be who you really are… unapolegetically. It was beautifully written, each character distinct and interesting. And some of the themes were very deep and thought-provoking. I loved everything about this book!

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • A light and fun read!

    This was such a light and fun read. I devoured this within two days! Izumi was a delightful character to read about, and her situation of not knowing her father really related to me. The transformation that she goes through from the beginning to the end of the book was really inspiring, as she is very much a procrastinator and slobby at the beginning, but really tries to take her duty as princess very seriously by the end. I do think the supporting cast of characters could have used more work. Her cousins and other staff would periodically drop in, but not long enough for any kind of character development to occur. This book is saving all of its development for Izumi and her bodyguard, Akio. Izumi’s natural selflessness is a huge strength to her throughout the book as it really draws the Japanese people to her side, where the rest of her family seem more self-absorbed. I definitely recommend giving this book a shot!

    Thanks for your feedback!
