wishful wednesday

Tahun 2013 ini membawa cukup banyak keberuntungan terhadap Wishful Wednesday-ku =) Terbukti, beberapa wish yang sudah tayang disini, bisa kuperoleh, ada yang tiba-tiba ngasih hadiah ini, terus ada juga yang tiba-tiba masuk di Bargain Bucket-nya Book Depository. Senangnya =) Semoga wish kalian semua juga banyak terpenuhi sepanjang 2013 ini…

Minggu ini, pilihan jatuh pada buku yang jadi salah satu best books of the month-nya Amazon di bulan Maret. Covernya lucuuuu, temanya…first love (uhuk), dan snagat cocok sepertinya buat yang mau walking down the memory lanes.. and remember the beautiful feeling of falling in love..huhuy! Here we go, Eleanor & Park (Rainbow Rowell)

look at that GORGEOUS cover!

look at that GORGEOUS cover!

While Eleanor & Park is technically classified as YA lit and has a cutesy cover, don’t let the stigma of “books for teens” fool or deter you. It is written about teens, sure, but the themes are so universal that anyone who survived high school will relate to the lives of the two protagonists. Eleanor is the new girl in town and her wild red hair and patchwork outfits are not helping her blend in. She ends up sitting next to Park on the bus, whose tendencies towards comic books don’t jibe with the rest of his family’s love of sports. They sit in awkward silence every day until Park notices that Eleanor is reading his comics over his shoulder; he begins to slide them closer to her side of the seat and thus begins their love story. Their relationship grows gradually–making each other mixed tapes (it is 1986 after all) and discussing X-Men characters–until they both find themselves looking forward to the bus ride more than any other part of the day. Things aren’t easy: Eleanor is bullied at school and then goes home to a threatening family situation; Park’s parents do not approve of Eleanor’s awkward ways. Ultimately, though, this is a book about two people who just really, really like each other and who believe that they can overcome any obstacle standing in the way of their happiness. It’s a gem of a book. –Caley Anderson
