Hola! Ngga kerasa udah sebulan lebih ngga nulis review di blog ini. Sebenernya udah ada draft review buku cuman karena lagi sibuk
dan tersiksa karena skripsi jadi rasanya hasrat untuk menulis review semakin berkurang. Sebenernya kecepatan membaca juga berkurang sih karena sekarang lebih sering baca jurnal dan buku kuliah buat referensi skripsi. Okay, back to the point of this post! Jadi, tahun ini aku pertama kali ikutan event tukar kado bersama para kakak-kakak BBI yang ultahnya juga sama denganku di bulan November (yeay!). Jadi, tujuan postingan ini ditulis adalah untuk menunjukkan wish list-ku untuk giver yang nanti akan memberikan kado untukku.
Tanpa bertele-tele lagi, inilah wish list-ku (yang semoga tidak menyusahkan ya! hehe).

This morning, Kady thought breaking up with Ezra was the hardest thing she’d have to do.This afternoon, her planet was invaded.The year is 2575, and two rival megacorporations are at war over a planet that’s little more than an ice-covered speck at the edge of the universe. Too bad nobody thought to warn the people living on it. With enemy fire raining down on them, Kady and Ezra—who are barely even talking to each other—are forced to fight their way onto an evacuating fleet, with an enemy warship in hot pursuit.But their problems are just getting started. A deadly plague has broken out and is mutating, with terrifying results; the fleet's AI, which should be protecting them, may actually be their enemy; and nobody in charge will say what’s really going on. As Kady hacks into a tangled web of data to find the truth, it's clear only one person can help her bring it all to light: the ex-boyfriend she swore she'd never speak to again.Told through a fascinating dossier of hacked documents—including emails, schematics, military files, IMs, medical reports, interviews, and more—Illuminae is the first book in a heart-stopping, high-octane trilogy about lives interrupted, the price of truth, and the courage of everyday heroes.

In a perfect world, we'd all be friends with Amy Poehler. Unfortunately, she's busy being a Golden Globe-winning actress, a producer, a director, frequent acting double for Meryl Streep and mother to two young sons, so isn't available for movie nights.Luckily, we have the next best thing: Yes Please, Amy's hilarious and candid book, offering her thoughts on everything from her childhood to Hollywood, and from the demon that looks back at all of us in the mirror to her joy at being told she has 'a face for wigs'. A delight on every page, Yes Please is chock-full of words, and wisdom, to live by.

The years-long New York Times bestseller and Goodreads Best Historical Novel that is “irresistible…seductive…with a high concept plot that keeps you riveted from the first page” (O, The Oprah Magazine)—soon to be a major motion picture from Spielberg’s Dreamworks starring Michael Fassbender, Rachel Weisz, and Alicia Vikander, and directed by Derek Cianofrance.After four harrowing years on the Western Front, Tom Sherbourne returns to Australia and takes a job as the lighthouse keeper on Janus Rock, nearly half a day’s journey from the coast. To this isolated island, where the supply boat comes once a season, Tom brings a young, bold, and loving wife, Isabel. Years later, after two miscarriages and one stillbirth, the grieving Isabel hears a baby’s cries on the wind. A boat has washed up onshore carrying a dead man and a living baby.Tom, who keeps meticulous records and whose moral principles have withstood a horrific war, wants to report the man and infant immediately. But Isabel insists the baby is a “gift from God,” and against Tom’s judgment, they claim her as their own and name her Lucy. When she is two, Tom and Isabel return to the mainland and are reminded that there are other people in the world. Their choice has devastated one of them.“Elegantly rendered…heart-wrenching…beautifully drawn” (USA TODAY), The Light Between Oceans is a gorgeous debut novel, not soon to be forgotten.
Suuudaaaaah! Keempat buku itu adalah wish list-ku, oh ya mohon maaf ya untuk giver kalo wish list-nya isinya buku impor semua, semoga tidak merasa terberatkan hehehe karena emang sekarang lagi jarang banget baca buku lokal atau buku terjemahan. Yang pasti bukan bermaksud snobbish kok:"))
