book palette: eleanor and park

26 October 2014

Eleanor and Park is undoubtedly one of my favourite of Rainbow Rowell's books, which is saying something as they are all favourites of mine.But this one speaks to you when you read it, both Eleanor and Park's voices nestle right up close to you, whispering messages in your ear. You can see Park with his headphones in the bus, you can feel what Eleanor is feeling. The book breathes and pulses with life and honestly, if you haven't read it yet then I am judging you with my fierce side-eye.
Two misfits.
One extraordinary love.
Eleanor
... Red hair, wrong clothes. Standing behind him until he turns his head. Lying beside him until he wakes up. Making everyone else seem drabber and flatter and never good enough...Eleanor.
Park... He knows she'll love a song before he plays it for her. He laughs at her jokes before she ever gets to the punch line. There's a place on his chest, just below his throat, that makes her want to keep promises...Park.
Set over the course of one school year, this is the story of two star-crossed sixteen-year-olds—smart enough to know that first love almost never lasts, but brave and desperate enough to try. -goodreads
“It was like their lives were overlapping lines, like they had their own gravity. Usually, that serendipity thing felt like the nicest thing the universe had ever done for her.”- Eleanor & Park

  1. Oh Hawwa! How stunning your blog is. I love this book palette.
    That side-eye will be glaring as sadly, I haven't yet read Eleanor & Park. *sobs* I forgot that I desperately need it in my life, so it is now top of my brain and will be purchases AS SOON AS.
    Hope you're doing well little miss x

      WHY WOULD YOU EVEN DO THIS TO ME?

  2. This book palette is so gorgeous. I can imagine using it for a study to read books and write blog posts in.

    I know I'll get the judging side-eye but I have yet to read Eleanor & Park - in fact, I've yet to read any of Rainbow Rowell, but I plan to change that in the future. People have said such nice things about this one and Fangirl, I figured it's worth a look.

    1. Awwh thank you. And aH. ANOTHER PERSON. I think you need to change that ASAP. No Rainbow Rowell books at all?!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
      I personally prefer Eleanor & Park to Fangirl so start with that one!! But Fangirl was awesome too.

  5. I don't want to ruin the mood of this post by saying I didn't enjoy E&P. So I'm going to bow out and let this lovely post be.

    *runs away*

  6. I really like this palette...so calm and pretty. I love E&P. It's one of my all-time favourites. I feel very indifferent towards Fangirl and Landline, but I'm hoping I enjoy Attachments.
