Maybe Everything

A dead star—that’s what I am.

Just like a star that ran out of fuel—destined to wane in the dying universe. A star that shrank so greatly it couldn’t even turn to black hole. Like a solar system that lost its core; a hollow space populated with planets no longer bound by celestial gravity. I was left adrift in the boundless ocean of negativity.

And on the edge of the observa

Loving you is like singing along to an unknown song.
I don't have to know the lyric to enjoy the melody.

- pg. 39

Love is,
perhaps,
the only thing that truly hurts;
the only thing that truly heals;
the only thing that truly endures.

- pg. 115

Mellow. No. Not just mellow, it was sad. My heart's aching every word it had, every meaning it gave. Even the lovely love story like The Last Glow still felt lonely. Not to mention the heart breaking ones, in Of Jealousy I found myself, He Told Me reminds me of lots of things and in Maybe Everything... oohh stoph, I'm crying.

He's right.
He told me I'm scared of losing him.
He's wrong.
I never had him in the first place."


REVIEW IN BAHASA

Saya sangat-sangat menunggu kehadiran buku ini, dan sering berinteraksi dengan Alicia Lidwina via twitter atau Instagram ketika menyambut kelahiran buku barunya.
Buku ini menurut saya adalah jenis essay dan berbahasa inggris, versi panjang dari booklet Alicia Lidwina yang juga diterbitkan secara mandiri beberapa bulan lalu. Bercerita tentang keh

Aku mencoba untuk tidak menangis. Akan lebih baper kalau yang dibahas lebih fokus ke soal percintaan 😀. But seriously, kalian wajib baca buku ini. Banyak hal2 tak terduga yang buat aku jadi dejavu 😅

Ada kalimat:

"Actually, it was thanks to Sensei that I got to find a very fascinating word." (hlm. 22)

Aku merasa kurang sreg dengan"...it was thanks to..." sampai aku tanya Daniel dan dia bilang "bener sih, imo." Jadi, ya sudah.

Lalu ada kalimat:

"The time we spent together was but a speck of dust over our lifetime's a worth of memories." (hlm. 108)

Aku juga bingung dengan penggunaan "... was but ..." lalu aku juga tanya Daniel. Dia bilang bahwa itu berarti "... was (nothing) but...." Jadi, ya sudah

Maybe Everything is a collection of short stories, prose and poems about the transcendence of life, dreams, heartaches, encounters and goodbyes. It is a highly emotional read with a lot to say between the lines. Those who have been in love and out of it and those who feel deeply will inevitably bond and see reflections of their own emotions and experiences as they read.

Lidwina's writing style is just my cup of tea, what draws me into her writing is that she makes me feel all sorts of emotions. A

You asked me once : “what would you have done differently if we were born in this world with different circumtances?”

Di bagian ini aku baca sambil berkaca-kaca, menahan air mata, nyesek banget. Aku kira gak bakalan ada sesuatu yang aku ingat dari buku ini, ternyata dibagian akhir adalah klimaksnya.

In Maybe Everything, Alicia still maintains the melancholic tone that's prevalent in her previous works, but loses that magical and impactful choice of words.

In 16 pages, this booklet story has shattered my heart.
Saya tidak pernah suka dengan tema kisah cinta yang berujung "melepaskan," it just too much feeling.

But, this booklet was awesome. My heart falls into pieces.

Ada tuh tips yang kepingin banget gw aplikasi: kalo baca buku, ya satu aja, kalo udah selesai baru baca yang berikutnya. Tapi itu tuh berat banget.

Sebetulnya gw lagi baca Circe - Madeline Miller. But girls, Circe itu tebel ya dan ceritanya gitu, sampe setengah baca itu gw belum ketemu konflik sebetulnya. Ini nyeritain Circe aja yang lumayan bikin boring sebetulnya. Alhamdulillahnya gw anaknya sabar, ye kan, gw tetep nungguin dan terus baca. Sampai pagi ini gw iseng buka GD (akhirnya ikutan urun

Maybe everything, is a collection of short stories and poetry. Mostly placed in japan, and one and another chapter separate to each other although the theme are the same talked about sadness and the aftermath of broken heart.

My fav story from this collection is the last story, talk about two best friends who have the same feeling, fall in love towards each other but never have the guts to confess, so they ended up regret the past

So interesting but also so sad.

I liked the diction she used in this book but the story is pretty boring.

Skipping the poems for I didn't feel like they got me, admiring the short stories for that's where the real deal is.

Therefore, simple math: two stars and a half.

Painful, bitter and heartbreaking.
But I love this booklet so much.
Can't wait to read Alicia's new novel.

Beautiful piece of short story that leaves you with bitter taste and a tinge of heartbreak in the ending. Definitely must read.

An author, an avid reader, an occasional blogger, and an observant dreamer. While the idea of deconstructing ephemerality through writings fascinates her the most, she has to concur with the idea of writing just for fun. Sometimes you might find her sipping espresso at the nearest cafe, other times she would be haunting vacant seats in food courts while munching on her endless supply of chocolate ...more
