Image
Hello there! Another month has passed by and now it's September. August.. is not really good for me in terms of book buying. But since I got my 'arisan' money on August, I think I can justify my book buying habit this month :D

August 2017 Wrap Up
Even though I've been buying so many books this month, I also managed to finish plenty of them. Here are the 1…

Hi there! July has become a very busy and hectic day on my workplace. So many things need to be prepared and done. Thankfully it's over and I could get back on reading :D

July 2017 Book Haul
On July, I got 2 books that I ordered from Book Depository on June. Other than that, I also got another book from Grobmart (because I'm looking for this book in a cheap price) as well as another book from Periplus bargain section. Here they are:


And here's the complete list:
1. R.J. Palacio - Wonder
2. J.K. Rowling - Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone
3. Tere Liye - Pulang
4. Brit Bennett - The Mothers

July 2017 Wrap Up
I had a very good reading time until half of the month. And then I got so lazy to pick up any book until early August. Maybe it's because of the book that I tried to read or maybe the workload finally get to me and it made me unable to read. I'm not so sure. But here are 5 books that I managed to finish this month:


1. Kate DiCamillo - The Tale of Despereaux
I…

June 2017 Wrap Up

Hi there!!! Happy Eid Mubarak for all of you who celebrate!!! Hopefully you (me) didn't get too full from all those yummy food and cookies :D

I don't have any book haul on June because my book hasn't arrived yet. After finished reading Wonder (spoiler for my June Wrap Up :p), I wanted to have the physical copy right away. So I checked some online bookstore and found it pretty cheap on bookdepository.com. I've finished the order right away but unfortunately I still haven't received the book until now. Hopefully it only got delayed because of the holiday and not because of other reasons.

June 2017 Wrap Up
I only managed to finish 6 books this month. Thankfully, some of them are pretty long so I'm quite glad anyway. Here they are:


1. Paul Kalanithi - When Breath Becomes Air
I read this book for almost 2 months. It's not a bad book, to be honest, it's just a hard book to read. The topic is pretty hard, because it's an autobiography (kinda) of a neurosurge…

[Project] TBR

There's a new project I'd like to tell you that I'm currently working on. It all started when I saw a video series from Booksandlala called the Book Closet Unhaul. Basically she will watch a book haul that she made 2 years earlier and then count how many of those books that she has read, unhauled, or still haven't read a.k.a her TBR books.

All of the books that she haven't read will become a part of her TBR for the next month. If she managed to read them, then she will keep it. But if she didn't, she will unhauled it the next month. There's some other rules that she apply but I think you already get the point of what I'm going to do now.

Basically, I'm going to count how many books that I bought and still haven't read from 2015 (the year that I started blogging) until now (17). Then I'll make them my 'main' TBR for the year. I still haven't come up with a decision of what will I do if I didn't managed to read all of them this…

May 2017 Book Haul & Wrap Up

Happy Ramadhan for those of you who celebrate!!! Hopefully this holy month brings peace and enlightenment for all of us :D

Maybe because of Ramadhan, or maybe because of other reasons, I managed to finish 10 books this month. Even though I'm still unable to control my book-buying habit, at least it's pretty manageable this time.

May 2017 Book Haul
On a very weird occasion that I checked Books & Beyond website, I came across this book for only IDR 40K. I've been seeing this book around Booktube as well as on Instagram, so without any further ado I ordered it.


And... to add more 'happiness' in my life, Gramedia had its 30% off deal again. And this time, it is applicable for non-Gramedia's Group publisher books. So of course I had to make use of this deal very well. I bought 4 books, 1 one of them I finished reading this month.

Complete list: 1. Sarah Crossan - One 2. Windry Ramadhina - Glaze: Galeri Patah Hati Kara & Kalle 3. Yoana Dianika, dkk - Indonesia Be…

April 2017 Book Haul & Wrap Up

Image
Hey there! I know, I know, it's been over a month since I posted anything on this blog. I tried to make a series book review, but things got in the way so I have to postpone that.

Anyway, be ready for the craziest book haul that I ever did... in my life. I guess. I've never spent this much money within the span of 1-2 weeks for book purchase before. Or any other purchases to be honest. Well, without further ado, here they are:

April 2017 Book Haul
My purchase at BBW Jakarta 2017 (that I bought myself):



Books that I sent back to the publisher because my copy has defect and they give me 1 bonus book:

Books that I got from BBW Jakarta 2017 (using Jastip):

Books from a seller that I found on Instagram:

That's it. All of the book that I got on April 2017. It was insane beyond my own imagination, because now my bookshelf is waaayy too overcrowded with books. I've been thinking to get another bookshelf but there's no more available space in my room or anywhere in my house …
