Book-ish Fantasies

Reading always keeps me learning, wondering. From YA/NA to Urban Fantasy, Sci-fi, Thrillers and Dystopia, help me bring these different worlds into life as we read together! :)

Achingly Sweet: Why We Broke Up by Daniel Handler

Why We Broke Up - Daniel Handler, Maira Kalman

It's hilarious, it's real-life relationship dilemma. It's first love yet it's also why Ed and Min broke up.

It showed me the wonders of film, criminy, as Ed said it was. But now I realized even if love can change a thing about Ed, or anyone else, maybe even enjoying the "different" side he thought was gay, for the sake of love, still won't make it work. If only love can put things in sync entirely without having to make things complicated "trying to go with it", if only it turned Ed a true man who can stand proud for Min, and only Min, then it'll be a happy ending for them.

Above anything else, I love the characters, love the poetic Handler writing, love the flashbacks. I giggled at the memories, I even teared up at the challenges between the characters.

Quick note: I've broken up with my exes without giving anything back, any memories back to them, because that will be such a revenge and it'll tear their world apart, remembering everything.

Oh well, poor Ed, he fell in love and messed up with the wrong girl. xD
