Bookish Project Happiness #5

This Bookish Project Happiness is a weekly feature by Alena @ keepbooked; a compilation of all the things we find interesting, inspiring or artsy about books and/or reading in the internet or even in the real world.

This cozy Saturday, I am going to share something I’ve been waiting for so long. It’s The Longest Ride by Nicholas Sparks!

(From Fullybooked facebook page)

Nicholas Sparks’ books has been my companion growing up. Yes, I was already reading adult books at a young age. There were a few books around the house back then, and Nicholas Sparks’ books has been one of them. I was a kid and was curious about his books and I was fascinated with the covers. They all look alike in some ways too, which I loved. Growing up, I learned how most of his works have been turned into movies and were loved by a lot of people. (Seriously, who here doesn’t know of The Notebook and A Walk to Remember?!) He instantly became my favorite author!

I love how well he writes his books! I seriously cannot think of a book by Nicholas that I didn’t like. I just loved how familiar his writing style is to me and I always remember home (usually, my bed), whenever reading his books. I am so excited to get a copy of his latest novel, I bet I’ll love it as much as I loved his other books.

This Bookish Project Happiness is a weekly feature by Alena @ keepbooked; a compilation of all the things we find interesting, inspiring or artsy about books and/or reading in the internet or even in the real world.

This lovely Saturday, I’m going to share two things! First will be my favorite series of all time! (Well, maybe it’s OUR favorite series) The Harry Potter series has a new and amazing cover!!

Aren’t they lovely? When I first saw these, every memory I had from my childhood about this series rushed back. I missed the story, I missed Hogwarts. And I suddenly thought of re-reading the series. So hopefully I could re-read the series next month! It’ll be my Harry Potter month of the year. And I’ll probably review it as well, since when I first read it, I still wasn’t a blogger. Heh.

The second thing I’m going to share is something I found in the internet. It’s actually something that made me think and wanted it to happen to someone. So here goes:

Isn’t it pretty? I mean, the thought. Isn’t it lovely to think that instead of getting girls drunk and God knows what will happen next, why not just keep them sober while devouring books? I loved how beautiful and powerful the message is!

What do you guys think of my post? Did it inspire you the way it inspired me? Have you heard on the new Harry Potter covers? Leave comments or suggest things I could post! Or better yet, post your own! :)

So for this week’s Booish Project Happiness post, I am going to present an Eleanor & Park fan art! It’s so cool that I found this fan art this week, because it’s my current read! Anyway, it’s just a simple fan art but shows so many feelings. So, here it is!

Made a process GIF of the latest Eleanor  Park piece. Which I’ve always wanted to try but forget to save all the layers. Though watching this now makes the perfectionist in me want to go back a few steps on some areas… Anyways, my basic process: 1. quick, loose thumbnail  2. Sketch in black in white. Working digital, I like to sketch with values instead of line- really more painting than drawing.  3. Add a layer set on “color” to get a loose idea of color direction. And then probably a “mul(Source: http://pinterest.com/pin/522276888007782007/)

Well, I like the way it’s done. It sort of looks like a Japanese-themed poster or whatever you call it. The simplicity caught my attention the moment I stumbled upon it while surfing the net. It’s just seems so peaceful and well, I have a thing for monochromatic stuff. Anyway, I haven’t finished reading Eleanor & Park yet. But I am seriously loving it so far! Reminds me of how first love feels like! <3

For this week’s BPH, I am going to share to everyone this beautiful quote which I got from Booknut a few days ago. It’s just so touching and the meaning so clear and true.

Hmm, the source is ‘unclear’ though. I’ve researched about it, if it’s a book I haven’t read or just a simple quote made by a random person. But I only found blogs with the same image without including the author’s name and this. Anyhow, the writer seems to be really in love. Or maybe that’s the way he/she plans to love someone, someday. Isn’t this beautifully written? How the writer stated that we should not only love with hearts, but with everything we have, with every part of our body, with every vein, every organ and all the spaces in between? I find it really inspiring. In just 88 words, the writer was able to give an impact to everyone who reads the quote.

I’ll cut this short because I don’t have to explain or elaborate, by just reading the passage, you’ll already get the point. I hope it also gave a good impact to you guys, just like how it gave me.

So for my first BPH post, I am going to share with you guys an artsy image of a quotation from one of my favorite books, Looking for Alaska, that I found in the internet a few weeks back. I was searching through google for bookish sayings and came upon this:

Isn’t it pretty and cool and amazing? I fell in love with it the moment I lay eyes on it. The colours, the girl.. It’s just perfect. I was just really caught up by it that I even made it my desktop background in the office and at home.

Well, I actually can’t come up with the right words. I don’t really know how to explain why this image made me happy. Maybe, Looking for Alaska is really one of the books that made a big impact to me and I have fallen in love with Alaska that I even plan to name my future daughter after her. And then when I saw this image.. I was just captivated. I loved that line of hers and how it was drawn/sketched or whatever your call it. It’s just so pretty and cool and awesome.

Were you guys inspired by this? How about you, what inspired you or made you happy this week? Post your BPH now! And don’t forget to link me your posts! :)
