Stories for Rainy Days

Review in English:

I guaranteed any girl will get hooked once you see the cover of the book. Just as I do ahaha. The cover of this book (the hard cover one, just like the one I showed here) is very intriguing and sweet, just as the title of the book. Just by looking at both of it, it already guarantees you some melancholy. After I read it, I believe this book will very much suit teenage girls in junior or high school, as it mostly consists of love story, and incredibly good to practice your English haha

 This book is very easy to read and grasped, as the language is easy and common to be found, and the stories is light and sweet. Maybe for readers that are used to read heavier books, it will feel too cheesy and full of puppy love, but the compilation of words and illustrations are right on and match each other so well, it builds up the mellow aura perfectly. 

Here’s a preview:

 It was a rainy day,

 with a hot darjeeling tea, 

warm striped blanket and polka dot socks.

 One perfect moment to read stories for cats.

 Resensi dalam Bahasa Indonesia:

Impresi pertama saat melihat buku ini, saya yakin pembaca wanita pasti pada umumnya tertarik. Termasuk saya, hehe. Sampul buku ini (yang saya tunjukkan di gambar) sangat menarik dan manis, sama dengan judulnya yang unik dan seketika menjamin melankolia, romantisme. Menurut saya pribadi setelah membaca buku ini, saya rasa buku ini sangat cocok untuk remaja-remaja, terutama karena ceritanya yang berkisar tentang cinta remaja dan cocok untuk berlatih Bahasa Inggris.

Buku Naela Ali ini sangat mudah dibaca dan dicerna, bahasanya yang mudah dan sederhana membuat ceritanya terasa manis dan ringan bagi pembaca. Namun mungkin untuk pembaca yang terbiasa membaca buku-buku yang lebih rumit, buku ini bisa terasa terlalu enteng atau galau, namun gabungan dari kata-kata dan ilustrasi dalam buku ini sangat mengena dan cocok dalam membangun suasana sendu yang sempurna.

Berikut sedikit cuplikannya!
