My three loves in life are books, coffee, and drinking coffee while reading a book. Bonus points if the book includes any of the following: unhinged female main characters, murder in an academic setting, or enemies-to-lovers slow-burn smut. Come find me for lit-fic recs or bird facts!

"Kitamura has an astounding gift for examining motives with a forensic lens, charging even the most innocuous actions with (oftentimes sinister) meaning. In Intimacies, her critically acclaimed fourth novel, she applies this lens to her female protagonist, an unnamed interpreter who has fled New York to work at the Hague and interpret for war criminals on trial in the international court. Spooky, thought-provoking, and technically masterful, this book will stay with you long after you finish it."
