“We love films because they makes us feel something. They speak to our desires, which are never small.

So I dived into this strange book without knowing anything at all about it, its author or even its genre. I only picked it up because the cover is just so beautiful and I really wanted to know what the title actually meant. I figured it would be something related to magic or magic realism. So, get this, Wink, Poppy and Midnight are names of persons, and this book tells their story. It alternates between these characters point of views and the story unfolds.
I recently stumbled upon a post about Hobonichi Journaling by Penguins Creative. Here's the link to the detailed page. I am not investing on a fully grid-lined journal but have decided to take up on the Instagram version, challenge hosted by Penguins Creative. Here's the link to the Instagram challenge.
"Dumbledore would totally win," said the first one. "He has the badass Killing Curse." The second lycanthrope made a trenchant point. "But Dumbledore isn't real." "I don't think Magnus Bane is real either," scoffed the first. "Have you ever met him?"
I find some of the classic books hard to read. I just cannot read some of them; I keep repeating the same sentences and lose track of the story, the main reason why I have not read 'Wuthering Heights' and 'To kill a Mockingbird' YET. Trust me. I tried reading them a COUPLE of times. So you can guess how apprehensive I about starting this book. Since I loved Jane Austen’s works, I picked this one because it was on similar grounds. Lucky for me, the narrator’s voice was so pleasant I was effortlessly invested in the story.
Jane Austen’s works are perhaps, my favorite among the classics genre. I loved reading all of her six published works. Persuasion is my favorite closely followed by Pride and Prejudice. I love diving into her world of courtships, dances and balls and the times, which I can only read about now. Her work have a pretty-wicked sense of wit and humor that just suit my taste.
The surprising thing was that I got so much FEELS from this book and they were loud and strong emotions. There was barely any romantic moments only times when I wished there were because Emi just thought of the beautiful lines in her head but never said them aloud, it was as if she was waiting for something to happen. Boy, did she wait for a hell of a long time.
