Matilda


is now one of the book characters I love best. I’ve loved Harry, Max, Bartimaeus for so long and no other character I’d came across after them was strong enough to impress I’d forgotten how it feels like to begin to like someone you wish is real. And I didn’t just wish for Bartimaeus to be real. I wanted to own him if he is. Yeah. I wanted to own him. I still want to.

I’ve done Matilda. Took me almost 3 hours to finish it. I had a little trouble digesting how adorable Matilda Wormwood is. I had more trouble relating to her parents who are unlike any kind I've ever known or heard of. I was struggling to not wet my eyes everytime she does something that would have made her parents proud if they happen to be sane. I thought I was lucky to have read about her, to have liked her. Dia budak yang sangat mudah untuk saya relate with.

And I wish I had someone like her to grow up with. : )
