The Night Spinner (Dream Snatcher Trilogy #3)

If you love to read an adventure stories, like Bartimaeus Trilogy and Harry Potter, you might like the Trilogy of The Dream Snatcher as well. This is a story about gipsy people who still believe in Old Magic. And a girl, her name is Molly.

The great adventure has been written into these Trilogy of Dream Snatcher. For me, the writing style is good and there were numerous fast-moving scene that would make your heart jumping from one surprising event to another. Using third point of view that would make us like following the journey at the same time.

Book Review : A Distance Between Us

Saya kembali lagi untuk mengulas novel karya Kasie West. Kali ini cukup berbeda karena ada jurang pemisah antara si kaya dan si biasa saja dalam cerita ini. Tapi, masih tetap sama, kok, genrenya Young Adult. Juga, sosok gadis yang gemar mengeluarkan sarkasme pun masih menjadi senjata pamungkas Kasie West. Sepertinya, Kasie memang gemar sarkasme sehingga mewakili dirinya sendiri pada tiap karakternya.

The Distance Between Us merupakan novel tentang dua insan yang sama-sama harus mengurus bisnis keluarga. Meskipun keinginan mereka sama sekali bukan pada bisnis tersebut. Tapi, demi membuat orangtua mereka merasa bahagia dan senang, pada akhirnya, keduanya menenggelamkan diri pada kehidupan yang bagi keduanya sangatlah membosankan.

Lucunya, cerita di sini membuat saya teringat dengan serial drama korea berjudul Secret Garden. Ketika seorang pengusaha yang menjalani bisnis keluarga, dimana dia harus menjalani pekerjaan yang bahkan tidak disukai olehnya. Tapi tetap dia lakukan karena dia m…

Book Review : White as Silence, Red as song

Bagaimana sebenarnya proses mencari jati diri yang sering dialami oleh remaja? Apakah ketika sudah dewasa nanti, banyak orang mengingat proses dan progres serta ingatan akan kegalauan-kegalauan yang kerap menghantui dalam setiap langkah?

Bagi yang belum terbiasa membaca Young Adult yang dikemas melalui pemikiran dan kehidupan tokoh utamanya. Perkembangannya dari waktu ke waktu. Mungkin, akan beranggapan novel White as Silence, Read as Song adalah novel paling membosankan. Karena alur ceritanya yang lambat, berisi pemikiran-pemikiran Leo, tokoh utama, yang kerap mempertanyakan banyak hal dalam hidupnya.

Book Review : Treasure (Seed Savers #1) Anak-Anak Penjaga Bibit Tumbuhan


I received this ebook from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. And the thought about the story is my honest opinion.
I don't know how to tell you about my taste. I love reading all children or middle grade books. So, that was the reason this book was choosen by me. Needless to think twice to choose this, becasue after reading the excerpt, I tought, it would be a good story about the future. Okay, first of all, I want you to know that, this book is good for children to help them understand about how important the seed and plants for ourlives. This book stimulate children to think, what if the world that we are living don't have any food such as vegetable, rice, fruits and any foods that we already know? What if this world only have one artificial food like medicine?
This is a story about the future.....

Book Review : Alex Approximately karya Jenn Bennet

Bailey Rydell dan Alex bertemu melalui forum khusus pencinta film di dunia maya. Keduanya cukup dekat dan sering menghabiskan waktu berdua, berbincang tentang banyak hal sampai menonton film tertentu bersama. Namun, kebersamaan mereka hanya sebatas bersama di dunia maya.

Pertemuan dua insan melalui dunia maya bukan lagi sesuatu yang aneh. Sejak kemunculan internet dan forum-forum online. Sudah banyak yang membuktikan bahwa internet pun bisa menjadi tali penyambung bagi dua insan yang terpisah jarak. Meski, tak perlu dibahas lagi seberapa banyak hal negatif yang juga ada di internet.

First page seems running smoothly, I enjoyed while reading this. Maybe this is the feeling when you're fell in love at the first time. At first, when this book come up and hyped for not very so long but enough for me to be curious woman. I think that the title engaged me with strange way.
