After Dark by Haruki Murakami
The Sad Truth About Happiness by Anne Giardini
The Almost Moon by Alice Sebold


"Happiness is more complicated than that. You're asking for an absolute answer to a question that has no absolutes. It's not like happiness is a switch that can only be set to on or off. Anyway, I am not unhappy. Just not, overall, completely happy."
- Anne Giardini (The Sad Truth about Happiness)

Should I be ashamed that I judge books by their covers? It's how I pick my books! I find the back cover of this book especially pretty. Simple, elegant and pink! The gloomy title got me too. Superficial and attracted to things with depressing undertones. Yup, that's me. :P

I love the pattern on the back of the book and studied it for the longest time. I wasn't sure if I could recreate it with my own spin but here is my attempt:
My lines are no where near the clean lines in the original pattern. Out of habit, I like to run the pen twice but it's often comes out too thick for this style....room for improvement I suppose! Must gain the confidence to draw the line right the first time!

The name "sojoo" roots from "this is so Joany". Somehow in my convoluted thoughts, the name makes sense. On this blog you will find a collection of photos from my every day life. Hope you enjoy and stay for a little while.
