Do you believe that love growing by the times?

Apakah kamu percaya pada cinta yang bertumbuh dengan seiring berjalannya waktu?

Love is not a thing that can be ordered when they should come. So that when someone fall in love, sometimes they don't realiced it. In fact, love is a thing that given a comfort, so unrarely its comes by togetherness.

Cinta bukanlah satu hal yang dapat diperintah kapan datangnya. Sehingga ketika seseorang jatuh cinta bukan tidak mungkin Ia tak menyadarinya. Sejatinya, Cinta adalah sesuatu yang mampu memberi kenyamanan, sehingga tak jarang Ia bertumbuh dari kebiasaan bersama.

I am a person who believe that love will comes and grows by the time.

Ya, aku percaya bahwa cinta dapat bertumbuh dengan seiring berjalannya waktu.

This is the theme raised by author romance novel To Be With You, Indah Hanaco.

Inilah tema yang diangkat dari novel To Be With You karya Indah Hanaco.

I am a die-hard fan of romance novels by Indah Hanaco. Indah was very detail about her characters. Her language style was comforted to be read and had many words that make me felt I just know that. She was really productive and I envy about that!

Saya adalah penggemar berat novel romence karangan Indah Hanaco. Indah sangat detail menuliskan setiap karakternya. Gaya bahasanya sangat mengalir dan memiliki kata-kata yang kadang membuatku merasa aku baru mengetahuinya. Terkadang, aku iri dengan produktifitasnya dalam menulis.

After a few moments hiatus for reading romance novel, now I'm sink back into my reading. For me, read a novel can raise my passion of writing. And it was succed enough. I read this novel when I want to provoking my sense of literature, so I can finish my short story project.

Setelah hiatus beberapa lama untuk membaca novel romance, kini aku kembali tenggelam dalam bacaanku. Bagiku membaca novel seperti membangkitkan kembali gairah menulis. Dan ini cukup berhasil. Aku membaca novel ini ketika aku ingin memancing sense of literature-ku, agar dapat menyelesaikan proyek kumpulan cerpen.

I read it during my busy work.

Aku membacanya disela-sela kesibukanku bekerja.

Sebuah proyek khusus membuat mereka berdekatan dalam banyak kesempatan. Hingga Milla dan Declan kian nyaman dalam jalinan pertemanan. Namun ketika perasaan yang sudah terlalu sulit untuk dikendalikan, mereka menyadari kalau sudah terlalu jauh terpesona.

Diamond earrings and a sudden proposal on a sidewalk, has changed everything. But they had not the chance to pledge allegiance to God when Declan became a kidnap victim in Pantai Gading. Declan was deprived of excitement and was suffering from prolonged trauma.

Anting berlian dan lamaran mendadak di sebuah trotoar, mengubah segalanya. Tapi mereka belum sempat bersumpah setia di depan Tuhan saat Declan menjadi korban penculikan di Pantai Gading. Lelaki itu kehilangan kegembiraan dan didera trauma berkepanjangan.

Kebahagiaan rasanya nyaris musnah saat Declan memilih berpisah. Memilih menyesap rasa sakitnya sendirian. Mila terluka dan bersumpah akan membenci Declan selamanya. Tapi saat lelaki itu meminta kesempatan kedua, apakah hatinya punya keteguhan untuk tetap menolak?


ACCIDENTAL MEETING, WHICH FINALLY MAKES BOTH OF THEM FELT OPIUM
Dipertemukan Dalam Ketidaksengajaan, yang Akhirnya Membuat Keduanya Candu


It's story about Milla and Declan, owner of cake shop and an environment's activist. They were thought was found a love. When they were almost lost, Milla and declan fought for winning their beloved persons.

Ini cerita tentang Milla dan Declan, si pemilik toko kue dan aktivis lingkungan hidup. Mereka mengira sudah menemukan cinta. Saat nyaris kehilangan, Milla dan Declan berjuang memenangkan hati orang-orang terkasih.

But, both of them at last standing together. Milla and Declan was realized that they were aspire each other. They were so amazed, can't look away.

Tapi, mereka berdua akhirnya berdiri berhadapan. Milla dan Declan menyadari, mereka saling menginginkan. Entah sejak kapan, cinta lama tak lagi punya arti. Keduanya terpukau begitu rupa, tidak mampu mengalihkan tatapan.

Their love is quite simple. Those who suddenly meet and end up to helping each other with their missions. They were felt comfortable and build a friendship. Until that comfort finally breaks into the depths of their hearts.

Cinta mereka cukup sederhana. Mereka yang tiba-tiba dipertemukan akhirnya saling membantu misi masing-masing. Keduanya akhirnya merasa nyaman satu sama lain dan berteman baik. Sampai kenyamanan itu akhirnya menerobos masuk hingga ke relung hati mereka.

Actually, this is a cliche story of two peoples who end up being friendzone. But, the author unravels it and makes this story more interesting by her language style. I necer knew that an activist did traveled around the world to campaign. What I know is that every activist carries out a campaign just in their respective country.

Ini sebenarnya kisah klise dari dua orang yang akhirnya terkena friendzone. Akan tetapi penulis mengurainya dan membuat kisah ini menjadi sangat menarik. Aku tidak pernah tahu bahwa seorang aktivis berpergian keliling dunia untuk melakukan kampanye. Yang kutahu, setiap activist melakukan kampanye di negara masing-masing.

Although I can guess the ending of this story, I never miss a page because the author make it's so interesting.

Meski ending dari cerita ini dapat kutebak, tetapi aku tak pernah melewatkan setiap halamannya karena penulisan Indah sungguh sangat menarik.

I gave 4.5 from 5 stars
