Another Little Black Dress Book
The back of the book goes,
Want to know what really happens on the tour bus/at the after-party?
Not so very long ago Naomi Braver was waiting tables in New York’s East Village and wondering why no one ever wanted to kiss her. But that was before she signed a record deal, released an album, and became the Next Big Thing overnight. These days guys (and girls) throw themselves at her 24/7.
Catapulted into a world of celebrity, it’s as if all Naomi’s dreams have come true at once. But stardom isn’t all it’s cracked up to be – soon she’s lost in a world where lovers are players, where friends become enemies, and where she never quite knows who to trust. Can Naomi master the game of fame before it’s too late?
Was it a fun book to read? Yes. Was it an outstanding book? No. Another typical Little Black Dress book which plays around typical girl’s fantasy and this time what it is like to be a rock star.
But it is a book dedicating to all pairs of bff/girlfriends out there! It is more of a story on friendship for me.
My colleague, Danielle* and I were at the Literature section of bookstore this afternoon. We browsed through the books available there. The books are selected stories of famous writers without the titles, just the authors’ names. And we had one of the most interesting conversation.
“I know this one! Sherlock Holmes!” she exclaimed as Danielle pointed to Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s.
Gesturing toward Leo Tolstoy’s book she said, “He sounds familiar”.
“How about this one?” I asked. I was referring to Guy de Maupassant.
“That’s the guy who died because of syphilis!”
*Danielle is my fellow writer at The Borneo Post SEEDS. Her degree background is in Medical Lab Technology. That was what happened when you combined those two interests.
*We only learnt a tip of the iceberg when comes to literature here in Malaysia. For instance, the only Shakespeare’s we learnt was Life Brief Candle. The rest? They are purely out of our own passions.
In Point of Retreat by Colleen Hoover, Will’s grandma told him this,
“A guy can tell he’s in love with her until he’s blue in the face. Words don’t mean anything to woman when her head’s full of doubt. You have to show her”.
Hoover holds nothing back when giving a love advice through her books. I absolutely agree with this quote.
My boyfriend of a year always pissed when I show a slight doubt in our relationship. Every time I narrow my brows, look at him warily he would immediately say “I love you bahhh”.
I know he loves me. I can tell to his core that he is super in love with me. But secretly I love that he keeps on assuring me how much he loves me.
Anyway, Point of Retreat?
Was almost perfect for me.
Although I secretly wish Lake die in the end.
What? I have a thing for tragic love.
“Sometimes the writer in me crafted stories about the people I saw but today I just observed”.
This is a quote from Beautifully Damaged by L.A. Fiore, the book I’m reading. I thought I’m the only weirdo that watch people and make out stories about them in my head.
Glad to know I’m not the only one.
