Mayuko finds a job with a high-class lingerie manufacturer in Ginza. It is the story of a woman experiencing confusion, struggle and growth in a world with a new set of values different from any she has ever known, and seizing the Japanese dream. Atelier is a workplace-based coming-of-age novel drama, written to present the story of a working woman, with the setting of a glamorous world of lingerie manufacturer.

  1. Sensing just a little Japanese theme there! *grins* My dad is the one in the family who watches Japanese and Korean films and TV. I'm still in a zombie mood at the moment so lots of those this week to enjoy! Now I just need time to read them all...enjoy your books!

  2. Nice haul! I bought some Japanese Manga for one of my daughters this week, she loves Sailor Moon... And since she enjoys manga, I always try to keep track of more for her :)
    Have a wonderful weekend and happy reading.

  3. Love your picks! I haven't really checked out any manga but I have some nieces that are in love with it. I am curious about the Robert Galbraith book but I feel like I should probably read Harry Potter first. Enjoy!

  4. Sherlock is amazing! I can't wait for the rest of season 4! Career of Evil sounds interesting, I haven't read any other Rowling books after Harry Potter.

  5. I haven't read Manga in a while. That's neat that you have a Japanese book store nearby to explore.

    I want to see the latest Sherlock, too.

  6. Aww, I love Japanese works! Enjoy your manga ;)

  7. I haven't read any Manga yet but want to. Hopefully this year. Happy Reading!

  8. I haven't bought any book yet this year (yay!) and hopefully I not anytime soon. Looking forward to seeing The Abominable Bride! Glad you enjoyed it :)

  9. I plan on reading Career of Evil at some point this year. I enjoyed the first in the series, wasn't too thrilled about the second, and haven't heard much good about the third. I'm hoping it's better than I heard though - for your sake and mine ;).

    Happy Reading!

  10. Atelier sounds amazing! I love watching Asian dramas, they're just so good!! >.<
    I hope you enjoy your new books! :)

    Lipstick and Mocha
