When Every Season Have Their Own Story

I read some novel lately.
For the truth, I never really love novel written by Indonesian author. Idk why.
Then my sister brought all these novels to me. 4 novels. Written by Indonesian author, Ilana Tan.
1st time I found my self impressed by the cover of all these novels. Especially, Summer in Seoul. All these books have story that connected each other. I mean, its not like to-be-continued story but tends to like there are always such a red thread that leads you to the next book. Well, something like that.
There are four titles, Summer in Seoul, Autumn in Paris, Winter in Tokyo, and Spring in London.
I have finished reading it all. Are they good? Yes. Definitely. I'm not trying to promote Ilana Tan's novels. But just so you know, she wrote all these stories with her heart. Because when you read it, youll find yourself involved in, literally. You gonna feel the sadness, the togetherness, lost, happiness, feeling of falling in love so deep, well, everything from these books. Ilana knows exactly how to make you curious, hurt, giggle, blushing, suffering on the same time.Thats a great writer. I guess what Ernest Hemingway said perfectly fits Ilana.
“All good books are alike in that they are truer than if they had really happened and after you are finished reading one you will feel that all that happened to you and afterwards it all belongs to you: the good and the bad, the ecstasy, the remorse and sorrow, the people and the places and how the weather was. If you can get so that you can give that to people, then you are a writer.”
I cant tell you how the story are. You have to read it by yourself. Cause I'm not a good storyteller, I just gonna make the story sounds terrible for yall. :)
