Jika cinta bisa tumbuh tanpa alasan, bisakah kebencian juga lahir tanpa alasan? Karena kebencianku padanya sudah bulat dan berkeping-keping bahkan sebelum aku mengenalnya.Aku tak tahu kenapa laki-laki berbadan kurus ceking itu tak pernah membuat hidupku tenang. Selalu ada saja ejekan dan celaan yang membuat gundukan kebencianku semakin tinggi dan siap meletus kapan pun ia mau. Ya, Joven Sayoeti Chaniago—wartawan junior Majalah Cakrawala sekaligus rekanku di Tinta Kampus—seakan tak rela melihatku bahagia dengan senyum mengembang di pipi.Aku pun merawat dengan baik kebencian itu. Menyiramnya dengan ledekan juga tawa puasnya, agar suatu hari nanti aku bisa membalasnya. Namun, saat pohon kebencian itu tumbuh dan berbuah, aku benar-benar tercengang. Tak kudapati bara di dalamnya. Hanya candu yang membuat aku terikat, hingga aku tak bisa melepaskan diri darinya.
If love can grow without reason, can hatred was also born without a reason? Because my hatred of him was born even before I knew him. Aku do not know why always disturb my life. He always ridicule and mock me, made my hatred toward him grew higher and ready to erupt anytime. Yes, Joven Sayoeti Chaniago-junior journalist in Cakrawala Magazine and also my colleague in Tinta Kampus -seems unwilling to see me happy.

The Girl on Paper by Guillaume Musso Review

Gadis itu terjatuh dari dalam buku.

Hanya beberapa bulan yang lalu, Tom Boyd adalah seorang penulis miliarder yang tinggal di Los Angeles dan jatuh cinta pada seorang pianis ternama bernama Aurore. Namun, setelah putusnya hubungan mereka yang terekspos secara publik, Tom menutup dirinya, menderita writer’s block parah, dan tenggelam dalam alkohol dan obat terlarang.

Suatu malam, seorang gadis asing yang cantik muncul di teras rumah Tom. Dia mengaku sebagai Billie, karakter dalam novelnya, yang terjatuh ke dunia nyata karena kesalahan cetak dalam buku terakhir Tom.

Meskipun cerita itu gila, Tom harus percaya bahwa gadis itu benar-benar Billie. Akhirnya mereka membuat perjanjian. Jika Tom mau menulis novel agar Billie bisa kembali ke dunianya, Billie akan membantu Tom untuk mendapatkan Aurore kembali.

Tidak ada ruginya, kan? Iya, kan?

What happens when fantasy is the only thing that seems real? Just a few months ago, Tom Boyd was a multi-million-selling author living in LA, in love with a world-famous pianist. But after a very public break-up he’s shut himself away, suffering from total writer’s block, with only drink and drugs for company. One night, a beautiful, naked stranger appears in Tom’s house. She claims to be Billie, a character from his novels, who has fallen into the real world because of a printer’s error in his latest book. Crazy as her story sounds, Tom comes to see that this must be the real Billie. And she wants to strike a deal with him: if he writes his next novel she can go back to the world of fiction; in return she will help him win back his beloved Aurore. What does he have to lose? Guillaume Musso’s latest romantic adventure is a story of friendship, love and the special place that books have in our lives.
