This is more about the series as a whole, and as this is the first volume that I haven't seen many reviews for, and the volume where I'm stopping, it seems an appropriate time for a review.

"The Book Girl is a goblin who eats books" says the back cover of each volume, and is a poor way to introduce the story. The Book Girl Toko has no superpowers. She just reads a lot. She isn't even the main character. Her sidekick and the only other member of her book club, Inoue, is the main character.

I love that we finally got some focus on Nanase and what makes her tick. Another wonderful installment to this series.

This is the bleakest Book Girl installment yet. I've inured myself to the sociopathic characters, existential despair, and death, but this time Nomura pulled something different -- something that makes even the child abuse in the second book seem mild.

The story opens with everyone's favorite book-munching goblin decreeing a temporary hiatus for the Literature Club so she can study for exams. Given that the club has only one other member, this isn't too much of a hardship for anyone. But before K...more
This book is a shadow to The Phantom of the Opera. As a third-year Tohko is busy studying for exams, leaving Inoue to his own devices. Kotobuki's friend from a music school goes missing, and Inoue agrees to help her, this time without the nudging of Tohko. Before she went missing, Kotobuki's friend told her about an "Angel of Music" that helped her gain the lead in her school's opera. As Kotobuki and Inoue go deeper into their investigation, the question arises if her Angel of Music was really a...more
This volume was not one of my favourites, I must say, but it was still stunning. I cried so many times, especially when they found out Mito died. I loved Tohko's revelation of the story very much.
it wasn't quite as good as the three previous books in the series. I kind of missed Touko throughout the whole book.

“The angel destroyed me! He seduced me with a pure voice, spoke kind words, and stroked my hair to lower my guard, to make me trust him, to trick me! He sullied my body, my voice, my heart; remade me as a terrifying monster; turned me into his companion! The angel was a disfigured phantom wearing a mask!” 24 likes
“Even though my angel has forgiven me and rescued me, who on earth will save him, who cannot be allowed into the light of the sun, who has lost his name, who can only hide himself in the world of darkness?” 4 likes
