Gekkou, or "Moonlight", is about the peculiar relationship between a cynical boy and a perfect girl.

Said cynical boy is Nonomiya who spends day in day out in boredom, taking refuge from his dull life in his imagination. One fateful day, he happens upon the notebook of the much-rumored beauty Youko Tsukimori, neglected on the ground. Poking out from it is a scrap of paper with the unexpected title "Murder Recipe". His interest ignited, he immediately stuffs it into his pocket, only to find out the promising recipe contains nothing but scenarios that may or may not lead to deadly accidents, not even worthy of being called a plan.

When he tentatively asks her about it the next day, she hasn't lost anything. But then her father dies. An accident...
Just finished reading this gem on Baka-Tsuki, and immediately looked for a thread here. I can't believe there isn't one, either! At least, not that I could find. So, to bring attention to this wonderful LN, I thought I'd make the thread myself. I don't usually make threads, so I hope I didn't break some convention.

It's a fantastic read. The mystery itself was good, but it was presented in such an interesting way and the characters were so engaging to me that I couldn't help but read the entire thing in one sitting. I wish I could find more books like this more often.

It's one novel and it's completely translated, so it's not a huge time investment. I finished the whole thing in around 3-4 hours. It was definitely worth it. There are apparently some additional short stories as well according to the B-T forum, but they are untranslated for now.
