Read: Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell

Two misfits.

One extraordinary love.

Eleanor... Red hair, wrong clothes. Standing behind him until he turns his head. Lying beside him until he wakes up. Making everyone else seem drabber and flatter and never good enough...Eleanor.
Park... He knows she'll love a song before he plays it for her. He laughs at her jokes before she ever gets to the punch line. There's a place on his chest, just below his throat, that makes her want to keep promises...Park.
Set over the course of one school year, this is the story of two star-crossed sixteen-year-olds—smart enough to know that first love almost never lasts, but brave and desperate enough to try. (Goodreads)
          This is another overdue post, because I have read this book last June, but I can still remember the bittersweet story Rainbow Rowell has ever told...

          This book started my Rainbow Rowell reading spree, so please allow me to share some of my favorite lines from the book:









          ...and obviously I went on a Twitter spree as well, while reading. What can I do, I can't help it. Everytime I get a hold of a good book, I can't help but highlight my favorite lines and then tweet it. Ah, guilty pleasures.

          For some reasons, Eleanor reminds me of Princess Merida from the 2012 movie Brave. Probably because the book describes Eleanor as a redhead, has a white to pale complexion, fluffy--or safe to say "curvaceous", and whatnots. You get the picture.



          On a different note, Rainbow Rowell, please make a part 2 of Eleanor & Park. But I'm kind of having doubts anyway, because, what some people used to say, "It's better to leave things that way". Especially with the way Eleanor & Park's story ended...
