"Bungaku Shoujo" to Shi ni Tagari no Douke

The "mysterious school comedy" centers on the unusual members of a high-school literary club. Touko Amano, a high-school senior who calls herself the "literary girl" as the club president, is actually a supernatural creature (youkai) that devours stories she tears pages from books to munch on them. Her club subordinate is Konoha Inoue, a second-year high-school boy who writes stories every day for Amano to eat. He once wrote an award-winning novel, but he wrote it under the penname Miu Inoue so readers thought the author was a mysterious 14-year-old bishoujo novelist. The stress from the novel's fame and its movie and television drama plans turned Inoue into an introverted recluse.

style seems to deviate from original novel's intent. Too many deformed caricatures and too often. Hopefully mangaka will recitify that with experience.
read all of the novels, and trust me it's quite epic.

great art (especially in color), and the storyline seems to be the same as the novel (although it seems to delve more into his past)

How fascinating.This story kind of gives me the vibe of Yumeka Sumomo's works,which I love.Though the story mostly gives the dramatic sense, I like that the author somewhat put some comedy scenes.

It's interesting how Tooko
Spoiler (highlight to view)
eats paper and comments how tasty they are
; however, don't they all just taste the same? O.o [Tooko's imagination is definately wild...]

The art is simple,yet beautiful. Refreshing to look at,actually.
Hopefully, the story progresses to the romance side a bit faster ^^.
Though the story isn't finished yet, I definately recommend this to people.
*A plus to Tooko's dialogue,very funny,yet so descriptive biggrin
I think I've said enough..

Great story overall. I liked it very much. But it's a story you read when you're in the mood for. It's not light, don't get fooled. It's depressing, so I don't recommend it to those who want to read it just because they are bored. They will never grasp the depth of this manga. Don't read it if you're feeling depressed either. It won't do you any good (well, it does get better by the end. But still...).

these kids really need psychiatric help. they kinda irritate me with their over full emotions, not because i dont understand, but because i understand too well the cloying madness of self hatred due to chemical imbalance in the head.that's why i think they are just too sad - they can be helped if they seek it. at the very least the youkai is someone bright to look at or this manga will become filled with people with too much self importance.
but in the end everything is alright, so i supposed enduring them make the story much sweeter in the end.

I was manga hunting today until I came across this, the synopsis and art hooked me in. I'm a big fan of romance/mystery type stuff so I gave it a try and read the first chapter and I really like it so far. :] This series seems it will be promising. I'm realllly anxious for the rest of the chapters to be translated, times like this I wish I could read Japanese!
