Week 4 ☕ 泣きたい夜の甘味処 🥐 | 癒し系 Book Club

Summary - Japanese




Summary - English

A sweet shop tucked away in a town. This store, run by a bear and a salmon, is only open at night.
All they serve is hot tea and a sweet dish. Tonight, too, people who are tired and want to cry wander into this store.

The night they gave up on their dreams,
The night they think of their loved ones,
A night when you hate yourself.
-On those nights, it’s okay to shed a tear in this store.

In addition to 52 pages of newly illustrated stories from another point of view, unknown to the main characters, 11 recipes for sweets are included.[/details]

:exclamation: A free version of the book is available which doesn’t include the recipes or extra side stories.

I just finished the last story in the volume and this was definitely a worthwhile find. I like how the actual cafe is only a small part of each story, especially with the follow-up episodes, but it always gives that little nudge the person needs. Definitely a very good pick for the book club.
