Love Looks Pretty on You by Lang Leav | Highlights

A Love Letter to Bali

I will never forget those slow, languid days, warm and balmy. The sun was a pomegranate red, ripe, and full of promise, painting the pink sky. We stayed in a Grecian-style villa, overlooking the shoreline, watching the waves crash onto the lazy stretch of sand below.
The daylight sunk into starlight like a slow transition, as we lost track of time altogether. My skin grew luminous and shone from the inside, glowed like a lantern. White crescent moons appeared at the bottom of my fingernails. My hair grew thicker, wilder. We were feasting on exotic fruits and midnight conversations that drifted into the sea salt breeze.
We slept. We woke up in the half-light to watch the sun come up. We didn’t write a single word.
Mischievous monkeys scampered across our balcony. Frogs hopped in our path and out of sight again, the sound of their croaking ever-present. Tiny birds darted in and out of our line of vision like thoughts.
The half-moon yawned when we waved goodbye to another moment, lost to memory. The walls learned our secrets like how you like your coffee black and I like mine with cream and sugar. We left something of ourselves behind.
He feels like the culmination of every good deed I’ve ever done.


From: Love Looks Pretty on You by Lang Leav

As you can see, this is another post about the last book I read called Love Looks Pretty on You. I like the author’s word choice and the emotions that the author gave us are wonderful. There is some soft vibe in the book that makes you feel emotional and I think only a few authors can achieve it. Lang Leav was successful in her language to show us all these emotions. To describe how you feel is quite complex task to do because there is always this variety of emotions. Everyone fights their own battle and there are always the good and the bad feelings inside of us. Happiness versus sorrow. Peace versus anger. It’s up to you to decide how you feel and how your life is going to look like. You just have to understand your feelings.

Also, the author’s descriptions are marvelous. They are the upper level of the language and it’s something that will always attract me. As you can see, Lang Leav did an amazing job at this point and I want to read such descriptions all the time. The book Love Looks Pretty on You is full of these amazing descriptions and I highly recommend you to read it. Do check it out!

In my previous I left you the Amazon link, so you can order it if you want.
