I Love You So Mochi
Check out more reviews @ Perspective of a Writer...
I Love You So Mochi has been flying around the Asian book blogger blogs. It caught my eye due to the title, based on a Japanese confectionery made from pounded rice and molded around a yummy filling. My favorite are ice cream mochi... I was dying to see how they were incorporated into the story.
Kimi Nakamura has been practicing her art since she was a child at the knee of her wannabe artist mother. Lately though its taken a tu ...more

I Love You So Mochi was definitely one of my most anticipated reads of 2019! I adored Sarah Kuhn's Heroine Worship series (definitely recommend!), so I was so excited for her young-adult debut. This book was the cute, soft romance that I didn't know I needed.
I loved the main character, Kimi. She's such a go-getter; she knows what she wants and she does what she can to accomplish it. Her love of fashion and desig ...more
Also the synopsis sounds like everything I've ever wanted.
UPDATE: IT'S PREORDERABLE ON AMAZON! Releases May 28th 2019!
I don't even have the words to describe the absolute cuteness overload that was this book!!! I mean, first of all, just look at that gorgeous cover! With the cherry blossoms, and the drawn characters, and the adorable handwritten look of the cover...I just knew that I would be in for a treat, and I absolutely was!
I Love You So Mochi is about Kimi, a second generation Japanese-American teenager, who goes to Japan and meets her Japanese ...more
I would have love this in high school, but just felt more YA. Getting YA books for middle school is tough-- sometimes the details of high school are ones they want, some times they aren't. I've had a lot of students with this last name, so I was hoping this would be a good fit. Definitely would purchase for high school, though.
This book was so incredibly happy making! I loved literally every relationship in this. From Kimi's relationship with her parents and friends at home, to the relationships she forms with her grandparents and Akira in Japan. I don't know how Sarah Kuhn managed to flesh them all out so well in just 308 pages but my goodness, she did!
This book is all about Kimi figuring out what her passion is. Now, I knew her pass ...more

Thank you to the @KidLitExchange network and the publisher for the advance copy of I Love You So Mochi by Sarah Kuhn. All opinions are my own.
I Love You So Mochi is a cute contemporary YA novel about family, friendship, first love, and self-discovery. Kimi loves turning scraps and random clothing pieces she finds at thrift shops into what she calls Kimi Originals. Her mother however disapproves and feels that spending time creating clothes is just a distraction from purs ...more
This was such a fun, YA contemporary. Kimi Nakamura is torn between finding her one true passion in life. Her mother has sacrificed a lot and is pushing Kimi to apply to a prestigious art academy. She doesn’t want to disappoint anyone, but she keeps drawing a blank when it comes to painting. After a huge fight, Kimi decides to travel t ...more
“This book is so cute!” is the one thought I kept having while reading and continue to have while attempting to write this review. Our main character Kimi Nakamura travels to Kyoto, Japan to visit her grandparents and go on a passion driven journey of self-discovery. Along the way she has her friends, family, and the new cute boy she meets to help guide her.
There is an insta-love situation in the book ...more
You can tell that the author is fascinated with Japanese culture. Every word she writes about Japan makes me want to whoosh to Japan :D
But the romance was love at first sight which I am not the biggest fan of. Also, going about with an unknown person in a new land whose language is unknown to you, no way.
If I ignore that, the romance was cute and a little over the too.
The words used to express numbers are hilarious.
There are so many moments that are repeated throughout the story ...more
