"Alone does not necessarily mean lonely."
―Lettisia Gianti

SETIDAK-TIDAKNYA bagi saya, buku Stories for Rainy Days seperti ditulis untuk merayakan ingatan-ingatan yang tak sempat terpikirkan dalam-dalam ketika manusia berada di tengah keramaian/ kesibukan. Maka saya bayangkan Naela Ali menjauh dari ketegangan hidup, sengaja lari dari kebisingan yang hiruk pikuk, dan menyendiri. Dan saya bayangkan, ketika saya membaca Stories for Rainy Days, saat itulah saya mengetahui apa-apa yang tengah dipikirk

Lately, I came across Naela Ali’s instagram account (her username is @naelaali) quite often, because apparently some of my followings are her followers. So I kind of check her feeds every now and then because it is decent, clean, and I love the tone of her pictures. Her artworks are also great. Based on those stalking activities, I found out that recently she just published a short story collection. It was originally self-published, but this year, a major publisher republished it.

Just like othe

Stories for Rainy Days is a collection of stories by Naela Ali. If you are familiar with Naela Ali then you must've known that a book with the same title had been self-published by her before. I'm not sure if the self-published version was different than this one since I didn't read that one. By the way, if you are not familiar with Naela

I need to remind myself that I don't have to write review of every book that I read. Especially this one. Well, this still considered as a review, just not an in-depth one.

I noticed (and followed) Naela Ali for her artworks. Her watercolor illustration to be exact. When her self-published book published by a big publisher (in hardcover!) I knew that I will buy it... I did, when it was on a book sale. And, oh God, how I am not regretting I didn't buy it in normal price. This book is.... well, let

So quote-able😍

Bahasanya juga ringan, mudah dimengerti. Yang mau belajar bahasa Inggris boleh, nih, dicoba. Biar sekalian ada nyeseknya😏😌

Ilustrasinya sangat cantik😍❤ Sayangnya di Scoop gambarnya jadi pecah-pecah😂

Minusnya, di beberapa chapter ada kalimat yang metaphornya diulang. Not really a big problem for me, tho. Tapi aneh juga rasanya baca paragraf baru tapi ngerasa "Eh, ini kan yang dibaca tadi?"😂

Read Harder Challenge 2018 #1: A one-sitting book

The size help to finished it in one-sitting. Read it on my way home from work. For the most part, I felt that the stories like a continuation from the previous story. But suddenly, it's not. Its kinda threw me of the track. I get why people would love this book. Its sweet. Luckily I read Love is... by Puuung first, so it didn't get me a cavity for my teeth because its sweetness. But there are also bitterness when the girl got her heart break. It r

I personally love this edition (hardcover with minimalist cover design and the cat illustration is my favorite). Stories for Rainy Days comes with deeper love story along with those hipster (or not so hipster) songs mentioned at some pages (maybe for some people it is uneasy because they have to listen it first if they're really want to know) yet some pages didn't change from the first edition. The illustrations also become more elegant and mature. A tiny book of tiny stories by Joseph Gordon-Le ...more

"Love is a funny thing, you know, you felt that it was so real and you thought you would die to live without that certain person, but then one day, you woke up feeling nothing about him. Like, the feeling was vanished just like that. And you look at that person with nothing at all. Like you often wonder, 'how did I ended up loving this man?'
Well, love is funny.
Life is funny."
3 stars for the cute illustrations, 1 stars for the story, so 2 stars :D
The stories are totally cheesy, and it's like peeking into someone's personal diary, and honestly it made me uncomfortable. But, I really like its illustration!

It's encouraging that more and more young Indonesian authors wrote interesting stories like these. I wonder though, for such young age with classic music reference, how far would she go?!

I've been a fan of naela ali's works for about a year (more or less), so buying this book is one of the appreciation that I can do for her. I bought directly from her so I got the signed copy, set of stickers, and a postcard. The card even written by hand so it is such a special one.

Anyway, It is a good book. I don't need to talk about the ilustration but The writings ain't that incredible maybe because I hope I can relate but I just can't lol. Nonetheless some are special, I decided to give one

Stories for rainy days is a compilation of short stories accompany with author's original artworks. It written in English and talk about a girl's past love life, it's bittersweet and make me feel melancholy especially since i read it by the window when it's raining. The artworks are soooo pretty, you can see more details about this book on @storiesforrainydays instagram, i would recommend it to anyone looking for short stories or light reading.
I'm tired of feeling things that I should never feel.
I'm tired of hoping things that I should never hope.
I'm tired of loving the one I should never love.
I'm tired of missing the one I should never miss.
I'm tired of being tiredly tired to feel tired of something so tiring.

- Naela Ali -

A book that can make you feel warm with incredible Illustrations, simple stories about love and ordinary things that connects us to the nature especially on a rainy day.
