In a Blue Moon

May 24, 2015 0 Comments

Well, this is it, Ilana Tan's new book, In a Blue Moon. 

Jujur, sewaktu lihat buku ini di rak toko buku, mata saya berbinar binar. Ilana Tan memang salah satu pengarang novel favorit saya. Dan tentu saja, kali itu saya tidak akan melewatkan karya Ilana Tan yang terbaru ini. Jadi, langsung saya bawa ke kasir.

Ekspektasi saya tinggi, karena lima karya Ilana Tan sebelumya benar-benar membuat saya jatuh cinta. 

Ini cerita tentang Sophie Wilson dan Lucas Ford yang memiliki sejarah buruk di masa lalu dan sepuluh tahun kemudian dipertemukan kembali oleh perjodohan secara sepihak oleh kakek mereka. 

Saya tidak akan bercerita lebih lanjut karena takut akan jadi spoiler. Saya disini hanya ingin mengomentari dan memberi kesan saya terhadap novel yang digadang menjadi mega bestseller ini. 

Berita baiknya, novel ini ringan. Bisa dibilang ini karya Ilana yang paling ringan. Atau sebenarnya ini hanya efek cara bercerita Ilana? Karena sesungguhnya menurut saya cerita ini tidak seringan itu. Masa lalu antara Lucas dan Sophie, kebencian Sophie, penolakan atas perjodohan, cerita Miranda dan Lucas, juga tentang Adrian. Banyak hal yang bisa dibuat lebih dramatis. Saya rasa Ilana hanya berfokus pada hubungan romantis love-hate relationship antara Lucas dan Sophie. Sehingga menurut saya, saya tidak menemukan klimaks dari novel ini. Jangankan klimaks, konfliknya saja saya merasa kurang greget. 

Lalu penggambaran karakter yang menurut saya kurang jelas. Maafkan saya jika saya menyakiti hati penggemar Ilana yang lain, tapi jujur saya tidak dapat bayangan apa-apa terhadap bentuk fisik karakter. Menurut pembaca lain mungkin itu bagus, karena membiarkan pembaca berimajinasi sendiri. Namun buat saya, saya butuh guide secara physical. 

Namun, saya suka cara Ilana Tan membuat cerita ini mengalir dengan enak begitu saja sehingga membuat saya tidak berhenti membaca. Lalu, saya suka cara Ilana menjabarkan karakteristik karakter melalui dialog-dialog yang ada. Dan yah, karakter Lucas memang potion-ing :'

Secara keseluruhan cerita ini bagus. Tapi untuk nama sebesar Ilana Tan, jujur saja, novel ini dibawah ekspektasi saya.

Tapi semua orang punya pendapat masing-masing kan? Bagaimana pendapatmu?

They MADE it!

Well its actually quite late to tell and I guess most of you have already known the fact I want to announce. Okay, not announce, its me cant stop my self for being annoying to anyone around me because I cant stop to always blabbering about MY BOYS FINALLY MADE THEIR COMEBACK AFTER THIS LONG 3 YEARS OF WAITING!!!!!!!!!!!! *wooooooooo* *whistling*

And the fact that YG (their agency) take the album super seriously, makes me super relieved. I dont know its YG feeling sorry to all the VIPs for have made them wait so long, or its Mr YG is a genius, so that the comeback is no joke. Its brilliant. Its different from another boy bands comebacks or even debuts. That is why I always love Big Bang.

I am not so gonna tell you about the concept. Or the comeback. Or anything related to how YG capturing people's heart for the Big Bang's new album. If you are interested you can just browse :p

Im gonna talk about every thought crosses my mind about the songs in Made new album, and their new look.

They've already made it with two songs titled BAE BAE and LOSER.

To be honest, I love BAE BAE more than LOSER. But somehow, at the first time I listened to the BAE BAE song, no, I watched the MV, I thought it was just so G-Dragon's. Its not Big Bang things, its GD's, I was a bit disappointed. Until the Taeyang part, maybe I was confused and successfully been hypnotized by Taeyang's charm so that the song was become forgivable. 

My favorite part is when TOP started to rap. TOP with joker concept is a brilliant! He nailed it! TOP with that bingu kind of move, crown-like hair and different eye ball color. He's stupidly handsome. 

And then, come Daesung's part. Watched it just after amazing part of TOP.... well, it roller coasters me. Since my number one bias is Daesung, watched Daesung with a girl on top of him and almost kissed his lips...... well...... hell! But, although it was weird at first, I think his new hair style suits him well. He looks sexier, hotter... with that kind of look. *drooling* 

When Seungri's part was out, the only thing I did was screaming. Loudly. Literally. Well, I wont tell. It was adult scene. And yeah, our maknae is mature now :")

Even after the song was out, I cant stop my self for listening and murmuring it. Yeah I still thought that it just so GD. But whatever, I always love GD's songs. 

And the comeback stages was out!!!! Wooooooo!! Its wayyyy more exciting!

To watched them with Fantastic Baby everytime they were on stage for 3 years... finally over. Big Bang. Come together. As a group. After their individual projects. With their different characters. Even I almost forgot how their shape if they were back as Big Bang. At one stage. With new songs.

............ Unexplainable!  


WHATS MORE EXCITING THAN THIS, HUHHH????????


My sexy Dae with a girl hanging on him. Whats more sh*t than this? I wish a was that girl :"

Our leader. Younger look. How cute :3

This shape of Taeyang. The one I couldnt imagine, him as Big Bang with this style. This style is a brand new for Big Bang. His hair style was always the same since Haru-Haru and Gojimal till Alive album. And now, for Made, he changes.

The maknae looks like the leader. Hihihi.

THIS IS THE BEST!!! I've never felt this in love with TOP before this.

Its beyond great is'n it? :3

I cant wait for the other songs to come. And for another surprises from YG to come. hehehe

Sorry, I dont have much time. Its finally come the time for me to back fangirl-ing after 3 years hiatus. HAHAHAHAHAHA
