"I realized that life is all about letting goletting go our own egos that we are willing to make certaim amount of efforts and energy to take the risks and accept the good or bad circumstances that might happen for the one we love

Letting go also means that sometimes, no matter how much you thought you've put efforts into it, certain things are just not meant to be

But then again, "In the end, the love you take is equal to the love you make".
If it's means to be, things will be just great.

Akkk! Bikin sentimental dan diabetes bukunya ><

Buddy Reads with Mbak Ayu : I need to remind myself that I don't have to write review of every book that I read.
Especially this one.
Well, this still considered as a review, just not an indepth one.


I noticed (and followed) Naela Ali for her artworks.
Her watercolor illustration to be exact.
When her selfpublished book published by a big publisher (in hardcover!) I knew that I will buy it.
.
.
I did, when it was on a book sale.
And, oh God, how I am not regretting I didn't buy it in normal price.
This book is.
.
.
.
well, let's just agree that Naela Ali's illustrations are so beautiful.


That's that.

I hope that everyone who reads this review have an amazing weekend and do not forget that your love to your partner (and vice versa), was not the only great thing that happened in your life.
Give yourself a pat for going through life this far.
You are special and amazing just the way you are, wi



Lately, I came across Naela Ali’s instagram account (her username is @naelaali) quite often, because apparently some of my followings are her followers.
So I kind of check her feeds every now and then because it is decent, clean, and I love the tone of her pictures.
Her artworks are also great.
Based on those stalking activities, I found out that recently she just published a short story collection.
It was originally selfpublished, but this year, a major publisher republished it.


Just like other published books by Kepustakaan Populer Gramedia’s POP, Stories For Rainy Days is aesthetically pleasing, and is filled with beautiful watercolor illustrations by the author herself.
Its small size reminded me of Joseph GordonL Rated 4 / 5 stars

Synopsis:
It was a rainy day,
with a hot darjeeling tea,
warm striped blanket
and polka dot socks.

One perfect moment
to read stories
for cats.


Review:
Stories For Rainy Days is a collection of stories by Naela Ali.
If you are familiar with Naela Ali then you must've known that a book with the same title had been selfpublished by her before.
I'm not sure if the selfpublished version was different than this one since I didn't read that one.
By the way, if you are not familiar with Naela Ali, she is an illustrator based in Jakarta with a penchant for writing and illustrating with watercolor as her tool.
As the description implies this book is written and illustrated fully by herself.


The stories are all in English, some are a couple
"That solitary moment you have at a crowded place, when nothing else matters, only you and your book.

That is bliss.
"

Enggak berasa warm banget sesuai blurbnya, tapi lebih ke galaw.

beda selera 'warm' aja kali yha hwhwhw

suka banget ilustrasinya sih, big fan of her sejak follow di IG nya dulu2 kkk Why I borrowed this book from iPusnas? Because of rains, a cat, and a book on the cover.


Then why I didn't finished this book? Because there weren't any rain, cat, and book in the stories.


Just cheese.
So many cheese that I feel like I'm gonna puke.


Sorry.
If I knew this book is about galaugalauan cintacintaan, I would never read it.
Definitely not my cup of tea.


One star for the nice illustration though.
ì Stories For Rainy Days ì read Harder Challenge 2018 #1: A onesitting book

The size help to finished it in onesitting.
read it on my way home from work.
For the most part, I felt that the stories like a continuation from the previous story.
But suddenly, it's not.
Its kinda threw me of the track.
I get why people would love this book.
Its sweet.
Luckily I read Love is.
.
.
by Puuung first, so it didn't get me a cavity for my teeth because its sweetness.
But there are also bitterness when the girl got her heart break.
It repeated in half of the book.


Naela also crafty when baring her feeling and put it into words.
Like this one.


That solitary moment you have at a crowded place, when nothing else matte I love this book better than the last one


One of my fave quotes:

Forever was a word too strong to be said.
And anything could turn into promises and I didn't want to say something that I was not sure myself.


You can not always get what you want even if you want to.
Things not always turn to be the one you hoped it would be.
