The cover of the first volume of the Book Girl light novel series released by Enterbrain.

Book Girl is a collection of Japanese light novels written by Mizuki Nomura, with illustrations by Miho Takeoka. The novels share the common title Book Girl (文学少女, Bungaku Shōjo), which is where the series gets its name. The series centers around Konoha Inoue, a writer in high school who joined the literature club after meeting Tohko Amano, the president and sole member of the club. Tohko can only eat stories by consuming the paper they are printed on and Tohko often asks Konoha to write her short stories as "snacks".

There are 16 novels in the series: eight cover the original series, four are short story collections, and four are of a side story. The eight novels of the original series were published between April 28, 2006 and August 30, 2008. The four short story collections were published between December 26, 2008 and December 25, 2010; many of the short stories were previously published in Enterbrain's FB Online online magazine. The four side story novels were published between April 30, 2009 and April 30, 2011. The first three side story novels are a part of a single story, while the last one is separate. The novels were published by Enterbrain under their Famitsu Bunko imprint. Yen Press licensed the light novel series and began releasing it in English in North America in July 2010, with a new volume being released every six months.[1][2]

Konoha Inoue is a second-year high school student and one of two members in his school's literature club, the other being third-year and club president Tohko Amano. Tohko is a self-proclaimed "book girl" who can only eat stories by consuming the paper they are printed on. After Tohko set up a mailbox for people to ask help in matters of love, a first-year girl named Chia Takeda comes to the literature club for help. Konoha ends up getting roped into writing love letters for the boy Chia likes, a third-year on the archery team named Shuji Kataoka. Konoha and Tohko discover there is no one on the archery team named Shuji. Chia takes Konoha to watch the archery team practice and when alumni of the archery club come to visit, they are surprised to see Konoha, who looks almost exactly like their old friend Shuji. Konoha and Tohko find out more about Shuji and how he had committed suicide ten years previous, as well as finding out that Chia already has a boyfriend. Chia lures Yasuyuki Soeda, one of Shuji's friends, to confront Konoha, since she suspected Soeda killed Shuji, who admits to stabbing him in the chest. However, Tohko arrives with Soeda's wife Rihoko and friend Shigeru Manabe, also previous friends of Shuji. Tohko proclaims that Rihoko was the one Shuji feared the most, since she saw through his act of always joking around. Rihoko admits to allowing Shuji to jump off the roof, after being stabbed by Soeda, so as to be at peace. Later, Konoha discovers that Chia had experienced similar things that Shuji had gone through, and he and Tohko manage to prevent Chia from committing suicide by jumping off the school roof.

However, Tohko finds out that the girl's real name is Hotaru Amemiya, and Tohko is determined to uncover the mystery of the ghost, but Konoha wants no part in it. However, Konoha meets with Ryuto Sakurai, a boy who lives with his mother and Tohko, and who is in a relationship with Hotaru. Konoha meets with Hotaru and her alter ego Kayano to help Ryuto understand her behavior. Konoha and Ryuto discover Hotaru demolishing a room in her mansion, though Konoha leaves to go back home. Tohko calls him from the police station, and explains she was investigating with Nanase, who is recovering in a hospital after being injured. Tohko explains that she has found out Kayano as Hotaru's mother, and the relationship she shares with her uncle and guardian Tamotsu Kurosaki. Konoha and Tohko go to Hotaru's mansion to look for Ryuto, but are almost killed by Hotaru, who believes them to be the dead spirits of Kayano and Aoi Kunieda, whom Kayano had loved. Ryuto had been stabbed and nearly killed by Hotaru. Tohko, Konoha, Ryuto and Maki Himekura go to a church to find Kurosaki and Hotaru, who wanted to enact her revenge against Kurosaki. Tohko reveals that they are actually father and daughter, something only Hotaru was aware of, and that Hotaru loves Kurosaki as much as she hates him.
