Title: 13 Little Blue Envelopes
Author: Maureen Johnson
Available in: Book Depository
When I said that I’m going to make time for books again, I really want to commit to it. Hence, my first review for 2018. I hope you’ll like it.
I’ve always wanted to read this book since I found out about Thought Catalog. Bianca Sparacino is one of my favorite writers from the site. Not to sound bias, what really gravitated me towards this book is the cover. It’s an abstract! Also, the title reminds me of the quote: “bloom where you are planted”
Whether you are into poetry and prose or not, I hope you can give this one a try. This made my soul feel at ease. The impact and words remain—tattooed in my whole being. I mean it in the most sincerely poetic way possible ✨
I’ve been hyping over this book since I saw it online. I’m such a sucker for this kind of title—being the hopeless romantic that I am. But I guess I expected so much?? I remember tweeting how disappointed I was after reading this. Though, I can’t really recall why? That’s the reason I haven’t finished this review yet. This is already a month due. It would be unfair to say I don’t like it without a valid argument and I can’t say I like it either if that’s not really the case. Besides, I read this along with Bright Dead Things and Chasers of the Light. The style and ideas got tangled. So, I gave it another chance and reread it.
