Book Cover Buddy

Pernah nggak kamu menemukan sampul buku yang benar-benar cantik? Saking indahnya kamu sampai berdecak kagum, bagaimana sang ilustrator bisa merancang cover buku itu menjadi sedemikian menakjubkan?

Beberapa buku dibawah ini adalah diantara sekian banyak yang jadi sampul paling favoritku. Mengapa kau memilih mereka? Karena kekaguman para ilustrator dalam menerjemahkan isi buku menjadi visual kecil pada sampul bukunya. Aku sangat menyukai seni. Aku hidup untuk seni dan lahir diantara karya- karya itu. Bukan hanya seni sastra, aku sangat suka dengan bentuk seni lain seperti musik, tari dan teater. Makanya ketika melihat hal-hal cantik ditampilkan dalam sampul buku aku jadi terpincut ingin membaca dan memiliki buku itu. 

Langsung saja berikut kuperlihatkan buku-buku itu pada kalian pembaca setia blogku. ^^


“I meant it when I said I didn’t believe in love at first sight. It takes time to really, truly fall for someone. Yet I believe in a moment. A moment when you glimpse the truth within someone, and they glimpse the truth within you. In that moment, you don’t belong to yourself any longer, not completely. Part of you belongs to him; part of him belongs to you. After that, you can’t take it back, no matter how much you want to, no matter how hard you try.”
Claudia Gray, A Thousand Pieces of You  

“Songs and movies tell us that when you meet the one you love, the planet stops spinning, the clouds open up, and your heart begins to sing. Reality is messier than that. The truth is, we meet new people all the time, but we can never tell exactly what they might mean to us. You never know who you’ll forget, or who you’ll need forever.”
Claudia Gray, A Million Worlds with You 

 “Ten thousand skies, and a million worlds, and it still wouldn’t be enough for me to share with you. Nothing less than forever will do.”
Claudia Gray, Ten Thousand Skies Above You  

 “You know the greatest lesson of history? It’s that history is whatever the victors say it is. That’s the lesson. Whoever wins, that’s who decides the history. We act in our own self-interest. Of course we do. Name me a person or a nation who does not. The trick is figuring out where your interests are.”
Anthony Doerr, All the Light We Cannot See 

“I have been feeling very clearheaded lately and what I want to write about today is the sea. It contains so many colors. Silver at dawn, green at noon, dark blue in the evening. Sometimes it looks almost red. Or it will turn the color of old coins. Right now the shadows of clouds are dragging across it, and patches of sunlight are touching down everywhere. White strings of gulls drag over it like beads.

It is my favorite thing, I think, that I have ever seen. Sometimes I catch myself staring at it and forget my duties. It seems big enough to contain everything anyone could ever feel.”
Anthony Doerr, All the Light We Cannot See  

“That something so small could be so beautiful. Worth so much. Only the strongest people can turn away from feelings like that.”
Anthony Doerr,
All the Light We Cannot See

“Maybe growing up means disappointing the people we love.”
Nicola Yoon, Everything, Everything  

“Sometimes I reread my favorite books from back to front. I start with the last chapter and read backward until I get to the beginning. When you read this way, characters go from hope to despair, from self-knowledge to doubt. In love stories, couples start out as lovers and end as strangers. Coming-of-age books become stories of losing your way. Your favorite characters come back to life.”
Nicola Yoon, Everything, Everything 

In the beginning there was nothing. And then there was everything.”
Nicola Yoon, Everything, Everything  

“If you listen long enough to the whispers, you will hear the truth. Until then, I will tell you this: the world is made safe by a woman. She bound the monster up and cast him out, and the man who was left was saved.”
E.K. Johnston, A Thousand Nights  

“My sister is no fool and she is not tender-hearted,” I said. “My sister fights for her home, and takes what risks she must. That is why I put myself before her today—why I would not let you have her. My sister burns, and she does not burn for you.”
E.K. Johnston, A Thousand Nights 

“There is life, and there is living.”
E.K. Johnston, A Thousand Nights 

“She had not answered my question. She had not told me that she loved his eyes or the sound of his voice. She had not said that his touch lit a fire on her skin. Then it came to me: she loved him because he did not seek to change her. If I had made him, or if my father had found him, it did not matter. My sister would have a husband who would not make her sit, veiled and weaving, in his tent. He would not take another wife, as my father had done. She would be his, and he would be hers, alone. This was why she loved him, and it made my heart glad to hear it.”
E.K. Johnston, A Thousand Nights  

“I hope you find someone you can't live without.I really do. And I hope you never have to know what it's like to have to try and live without them.”
Kiera Cass, The Selection 

“I loved him.
I couldn't pinpoint what made me so certain, but I knew it then, as surely as I knew my name or the color of the sky or any fact written in a book.
Could he feel it, too?"

“But even now I know this isn't a fairy tale. I know that we'll have hard times, confusing times. I know that things won't always happen the way we want them to and that we'll have to work to remember that we chose this. It won't be perfect, not all the time.

This isn't happily ever after.

It's so much more than that.”
Kiera Cass, The One

“Break my heart. Break it a thousand times if you like. It was only ever yours to break anyway.”
Kiera Cass, The One
