She loves the smell of cute notebooks, of colored pens, and of new books. She eats like a man, although she has never been mistaken as one. She laughs at the lamest jokes here on earth, but can't pull off a decent joke herself. She's clumsy, but always makes sure her heart is in the right place.

Wedding Night by Sophie Kinsella

A self-confessed Kinsella-fan, I bought Wedding Night as soon as its paperback edition came out, a week before I started a different book, and abandoned that book altogether just because I need my dose of Kinsella right then and there (sorry).

Although Kinsella will always be one of my favorite authors, I think this novel isn’t her best. The plot was good, but the narration wasn’t so Kinsella-ish for me. I believe she was trying a new style, but I like her own style, the language, style, and elements which I’ve grown to love. It’s a whole new side of my favorite author - change is good, yes, but let’s see how well you could embrace it with this novel, especially if you’re also a fan.

There was a whole bunch of characters, all rooting for the main character, which I believe is Lottie, but somehow, I couldn’t root for her because of other characters who have their own stories to tell. The story was told in first person POV, which mostly center on Lottie’s and Fliss’ perspectives. I would’ve preferred third person POV though - a sea of characters like those in this novel all deserve to be heard, unlike just focusing on Lottie and Fliss alone. Lorcan’s character was interesting and I think it deserved more building up.

The execution of the plot wasn’t so special also. I wish it had more elements in it. The let’s-prevent-their-honeymoon tactic was fun but quite dragging though.

Nevertheless, Kinsella’s bout of sunshines will give you a better outlook in love and life, making you want to YOLO… YOLO moderately.

Two out of five stars!

Unusual Sculptures of People and Skeletons Chiseled from Wood by Yoshitoshi Kanemaki

Japanese sculptor Yoshitoshi Kanemaki chisels these life-sized figurative sculptures out of giant pieces of camphor wood, a kind of evergreen. The strange pieces frequently involve two or more characters merged into a single form, which could been interpreted as commentary on mortality, or multiple personalities/perspectives.

"I remember now why I fell in love with you. The way you took care of me… and that infectious smile of yours which always lightens me up."

"Well, it was my turn to fall for you when I realized how you’re always there for me. In fact, you were there all along."
