Wishful Wednesday [10]


Another hectic Wednesday XD

Since April has been too-busy-month for me, after wishing for books, I also wish for calmer month, easier days ahead.

Hm, okay, let's see what's on my wishlist for this week.

The Lover's Dictionary by David Levithan

"basis, "n. "There has to be a moment at the beginning when you wonder whether you're in love with the person or in love with the feeling of love itself. If the moment doesn't pass, that's it--you're done. And if the moment "does "pass, it never goes that far. It stands in the distance, ready for whenever you want it back. Sometimes it's even there when you thought you were searching for something else, like an escape route, or your lover's face. "How does one talk about love? Do we even have the right words to describe something that can be both utterly mundane and completely transcendent, pulling us out of our everyday lives and making us feel a part of something greater than ourselves? Taking a unique approach to this problem, the nameless narrator of David Levithan's "The Lover's Dictionary "has constructed the story of his relationship as a dictionary. Through these short entries, he provides an intimate window into the great events and quotidian trifles of being within a couple, giving us an indelible and deeply moving portrait of love in our time.

I knew David Levithan from twitter. Actually, Clara Ng often retweeted his tweets, so I start follow @loversdiction too.

I amazed by his sweet words, simple yet fascinating.

Since I am hopeless romantic and big fan of romance stories, maybe this book should be one of my collection..
