Hard-boiled Wonderland and the End of the World

My boyfriend and I share many interests and one of them is our love for books. The day we were first introduced, we immediately got into a long, intense, passionate conversation about movies and books. That was more than 15 months ago and we literally haven't stopped talking since. 

Like most young couples, Nicco and I love to party but on days and nights when we want to just chill, we go on movie and reading dates. usually in a coffee shop where we would just sit next to each other and read away while having some coffee. 

On book dates, I always couldn't decide what to read because I'm pretty much a hoarder of books and ebooks that I download on my iPad. I would normally carry around a bag of books and my iPad then decide with Nicco what I should read for that date. It's always nice to have a bag big enough for that purpose, but still totally chic. And this bright red messenger bag is just perfect, don't you think?


One of the writers Nicco turned me on to is Haruki Murakami. After reading one of his books, I could definitely see why Murakami is one of Nicco's favorite authors. Murakami's fiction is replete with fantasy, sexuality, surrealism, and sometimes even bizarre narratives which is what I actually prefer in books. His books are also highly influenced by Western culture.

Murakami would sometimes leave me hanging and at the edge of my seat, still contemplating on the story I just read. His writings can be strange at times and almost dreamlike and magical, which is also what makes him unique of his kind.



If you guys are looking for something outside of your normal read,
I suggest you give him a try!
