Favourite Book: For the new classics challenge, it's actually really difficult to pick, but I think my absolute favourite was The Handmaid's Tale. For the Japanese Literature Challenge, either Goodbye, Tsugumi or Hard-boiled Wonderland and The End of the World. I recommend them all, though!
Least Favourite Book: New Classics challenge - easily Practical Magic. It wasn't bad, but I enjoyed it a lot less than the other Alice Hoffman books I've read. For the Japanese Literature Challenge, Strangers. I was loving it until the last few chapters, but the ending really disappointed me.
My thanks to the lovely hostesses, Joanna and Bellezza. For anyone interested, there is now a perpetual challenge to read the whole EW new classics list.
