Setiap kali pergi bookstore untuk beli novel terbaru, selalu jugak ternampak novel The Wedding Breaker (TWB) diletakkan di bahagian recommended/hot selling novels. Tertarik dengan kulit buku, title & the writer's name, few times dah belek the novel but tetap tak beli. I've to admit the synopsis behind the book quite vague to me that can't attract me much.
Till, during the raya week, duduk rumah bosan-bosan & semua novel dah habis baca, so, as usual, surf the net to check-out any novel or e-novel that's worth to read. Bumped into this one blog that review novels that are currently in the market. The Wedding Breaker's review terdapat under top novel, jadi bacalah review TWB... and.... it was a good review indeed, that I've decided to go to Popular the next day to get myself a copy of the novel.
1st Chapter, and I was instantly hooked with the novel. So far, novel-novel yang Wawa baca mostly about arranged marriage yang sempoi coz tak suka baca cerita yang terlalu berat. TWB is quite different, and quite heavy but the writing & storyline were beautiful that makes me to fall in love with it. Walaupun ada penyatuan dua watak utama, Tengku Adam Kamil & Ariana Rose, juga arranged marriage, tapi cara ia ditwist sangat menarik.
Salah satu sebab utama I like this novel so much, it goes straight to the point what The Wedding Breaker means. From the very 1st chapter, kita dah boleh tahu who is the wedding breaker. Dan kita mengenali watak utama, Tengku Ahmad Kamil & Ariana Rose throughout the whole novel bit by bit. The storyline also doesn't have much external conflict, except between the 2 characters. External conflict tidak dipanjangkan which the readers can really focus on the main story. Sometimes when I read & excited with a novel, tiba-tiba ada plak cerita watak utama kena culik dengan ex coz nak balas dendam, it really turns me off. Walaupun TWB ni pun adalah jugak adegan culik but it's a very important plot which will be the key plot of Tengku Ahmad Kamil & Ariana Rose.
The novel is also fulled of hadis dari Al-Quran yang boleh dijadikan pengajaran. Bagaimana untuk menjadi suami isteri mengikut syariah Islam. Banyaklah jugak benda-benda baru yang Wawa dapat bila baca novel ni.
Read on the net, bila some people klasifikasikan novel ni untuk 18 tahun keatas... hahaha! Ketawa pun ada but everybody has their own perspective, so, it's up to the individual how do you view it. Mungkin sebab novel ni menggunakan plot kehidupan sepasang suami isteri yang baru, ia nampak 'dewasa' bagi sesetengah orang. Baca dengan minda terbuka, and you'll appreciate the story ;)
This novel will be adapted to drama version. Dah jadi trend plak sekarang novel-novel popular diadaptasi ke drama. Terus-terang I rarely watch Malay drama but thinking about TWB in drama version, part of me said I'm happy and another part of me said I'm scared. Mengenali Tengku Adam Kamil melalui buku, memberi peluang kepada kita bermain dengan imaginasi kita sendiri. In my mind he's a perfect man that you'll wish him as your husband... HAHAHA. Giving a chance to see this perfect man hidup di depan mata, memang sangat happy. Tapi, watak Tengku Adam Kamil adalah satu watak yang berat. Watak seorang lelaki yang mulanya jahil tentang agama, dan akhirnya menjadi imam (suami) terbaik buat makmumnya (isteri). Tak tahu siapa yang sesuai membawa watak pasangan bahagia Tengku Adam Kamil dan Ariana Rose. In my mind is Aqasha dan Fazura.
Well, if you're looking a good malay novel that is fulled of pengajaran, TWB is highly recommended by me. Sekarang ni, TWB sentiasa ada dalam handbag so time takde buat apa-apa, boleh membaca, dan jatuh cinta kepada merpati sejoli ni LOL.
ps: just bought Evelyn Rose 2nd novel, 13 Jam A380 and finished it less than 24 hours. Another good novel from her. i think i found my favourite writer ^^

* entry ni macam kira kesinambungan entry MALAY NOVEL IS MY NEWEST OBSESSION *
I don't like to read... AS SIMPLE AS THAT! Since I was in school, bila bab kena baca ni memang lemah kepala otak. Tak kiralah buku sekolah ke apa ke, i just don't like to read. Paling-paling pun baca surat khabar or magazine sahaja LOL. Kalau time kena ulangkaji subject yang memerlukan pembacaan yang banyak macam kimia or biologi (yurp... i'm a lazy science student), tak sampai 30 minit mata dah nak layu. So, selalu sibuk duk ulangkaji subject favourite, which is Mathematics. Dah masuk college pun 2x5 sahaja perangai LOL.
So, do I read novel? I do AND I don't back then. Bohong lah if cakap tak pernah baca novel, but tak banyak and tak berapa ingat pun. If zaman sekarang, ada 2 novel je yang Wawa baca and both are English novels: Breaking Dawn & A Walk To Remember. HAHAHAHA! I'm an avid Twilight's fan so, after Part 1 was aired on cinema, tak sanggup nak tunggu setahun untuk tahu kesudahannya. Apa lagi, belilah novel jawabnya :p Jadi, konklusinya, I don't really read a novel.
Up to today, I've bought 8 novels which I like the storyline for most of it. So, dah alang-alang baca, tiba-tiba macam rajin nak buat review on the novel that I've read. But, don't expect a review yang debomb coz pemikiran saya sangat sempoi, jadi POV pun akan simple tahap dewa LOL.

How's everyone Raya? (tanya macam ada je reader tuk blog ni). Mine, as per last year, not much differences. Just, both me & my mom a lil bit lazy to cook this year. Yelah, saya adalah secara langsung terpaksa jadi bibik... kuikuikui! Nasiblah dapat anak dara yang agak pemalas ni. Takper Ma, nanti Girl dah kahwin, insyaAllah rajin lah nanti LOL.
Anyway, just wanna wish
SELAMAT HARI RAYA AIDILFITRI... MAAF ZAHIR & BATIN

Hahaha... Surprisingly, my latest obsession is got nothing to do with K-pop. I don't like to read, and rasanya, before obses ni berlaku, maybe tak sampai 5 pun novel (Malay or English) yang Wawa pernah baca. When I was 17, I used to read this one malay novel and love it so much. Tapi, entah mana hilang buku tu, and I can't remember the title at all T__T
Ok, back to the current situation, it's all started with Sebenarnya Saya Isteri Dia (scroll down to find the entry on this). Novel dia memang best, tapi that time belum ada perasaan obses untuk membaca novel lain till Kampung Girl's drama aired (it's replacing SSID). After I watched 1st episode, I've decided to buy the novel, and I'm loving it just like how I like SSID's novel. Then, I couldn't stop myself from digging other novels which at the same time I discovered penulisan2u.my (p2u) where people will send their creative writing skills there for public to read. If your novel gets popular, you might get the opportunity to publish your novel as book.
So, within a month, I've ended up bought 5 novels already, with 1 novel on the way since I bought it online. And believe me, ada lagi 1 novel dalam kepala yang tengah berkira-kira nak beli. I couldn't stop myself since I could finish 1 novel in 2 days O.o
|My current collection|
Storyline? All novels have the same storyline: KAHWIN PAKSA, PASTU JATUH CINTA. Yeah, lame storyline for some people, but I love it. I love all the novels that I bought, but my most favourite would be SSID & Love You, Mr. Arrogant.
Oh, I'm currently also following e-novel, My Hubby My Lecturer via this blog: Tulisan Tak Terkarya: Natasha Nadira Mohd Zulkifli. The storyline is awesome, and usually the writer will update one chapter a day.
ps: Novel yang tengah on the way adalah "Awas, Bila Hati Dah Sayang". Read up till 20++ chaps at p2u, but it was stopped half way once it's confirmed that it will be published as a book.
psps: "Suami Yang Kubenci"... yes, the novel that I'll buy next coz again it was stopped halfway on p2u too.
