The Lipstick Chronicles

It had been ages since I read a fiction book. My friends bought me ‘The Lipstick Chronicles Book One’ for my 18th Birthday and it took a little more than a year to complete reading it. Then a few years back, in the midst of window-shopping at Kinokuniya one day, together with the same group of friends who bought me the book, chanced upon ‘The Lipstick Chronicles Book TWO’.

Oh, how I pestered them to buy it for me for my upcoming birthday (another reason for it was because the book is bimbotic-pink in colour), and I got the book for my 21st birthday. Hehe. For some reason, I stopped reading after one-eighth of the whole book.

And I just resumed reading it on Saturday… I found it so hard to put it back down. I would read it whenever I get the chance to – heck, I was reading it while waiting for Tok to call me last night, but I fell asleep halfway. I am not implying that the storyline puts you to sleep, I was tired okay… Heh.

Anyway, I would read it while waiting for the train/bus, in the train/bus, and today I almost missed one train stop because I was too engrossed reading it.

While reading it, I realized that I miss the characters – Elyssa, Dana, Carole, Robyn, Alix who are friends AND colleagues (Elyssa being the CEO of the company) and they work in an online greeting card company. I just love stories about single working women who try to juggle between working life and love among the many things/problems/troubles that they find themselves in. And I don’t even care if the characters are fictional and not based on a true story or some sort.

Not only that I missed the characters, I missed the words – the fun-sounding, ‘colourful’ words. Everytime I come across a bombastic adjective, the word keeps playing in my mind, and will not rest till I find out what it means.

My next goal after finishing the book is to go to one of them bookstores and hunt down for ‘The Lipstick Jungle’. I found it at Sans Bookshop at Heeartland Mall while loitering there with Tok (hoho) a few weeks ago. I suppose it’s similar to the TV series of the same title, and I have a strong feeling that the TV series is based on the book. But because I never managed to catch all the episodes, I am determined to get the book instead.

By the time, I would have: The Lipstick Chronicles Book One, The Lipstick Chronicles Book Two and The Lipstick Jungle. And I am looking for this book called ‘Twilight’ (yes, the one that has the movie coming out soon) because I saw this lady reading it in the train and I discreetly read the back cover of the book. Sounds interesting. Whoa there, one at a time Juli… Banyak nye buku kau nak… Haha.

Something that was in my thoughts from reading The Lipstick Chronicles Book One and Two – I think one of the best things that could happen to you is to open a company with your closest friends, doing a business that you love. Boleh selitkan personal matters during work or meetings… heee… at the right time, of course.

Bimbotic-pink book cover - One of the things that made me want the book so badly. Haha.
