How I Rate the Books I Read by Bookie-Looker

.
 
Setelah tahun lalu menulis tentang "How I Write My Book Reviews", aku terinspirasi untuk menuliskan berbagai macam How-to yang berhubungan dengan buku dan juga book-blogging. Sesuai judulnya, kali ini aku akan menuliskan tentang "How I Rate the Books I Read". Setiap orang tentunya mempunyai cara dan standar yang berbeda-beda dalam memberikan rating buku bacaan mereka. Dan saat pertama kali masuk ke goodreads, beberapa orang pernah komentar tentang rata-rata rating-ku yang cukup tinggi. Oleh karena itu, dalam post ini aku akan menjelaskan apa saja yang menjadi pertimbanganku dalam memberikan rating untuk sebuah buku :))

You may think, "There is absolutely no reason for God to love me," and you are absolutely right. But God does love you. He chooses to do so, and because He is God, He has every right to do so.... God loves us because He wants to, not because we deserve it.
God is Not Mad at You is a book written by Joyce Meyer who is a Charismatic Christian author and speaker; and it discusses about our fear of God based on Christian teachings. This book explains why we should fear God, but not be afraid of Him. And the book also discusses the reasons why most of the time we are afraid of God being mad at us. The title itself is very encouraging and it calms my heart, knowing that God is not mad at me. There are 20 chapters in total, and I will briefly describe the contents (with tons of quotes!) for you to have a better idea about this this book ;)

The Book Depository Online Bookstore Review

.
 
{ http://bookdepository.com/ }
 
After reviewing two online bookstores last year (Periplus and Opentrolley), now I am back with one of my most favorite online bookstores ever: The Book Depository! I wrote my review in Indonesian last year - because those two are based in Indonesia; but this time I'm writing the post in English (and I think those who will be interested in this post are also interested in English books, so I hope you don't mind ;)). The Book Depository (TBD) is UK's largest dedicated online bookseller that started back in 2004, and the best thing about TBD is: free shipping worldwide! I have made so many purchases in TBD, and so far I am always satisfied. For those of you who loves buying English books, TBD can be an alternative for you. So here's my review on my shopping experience at The Book Depository.

If I Stay: Official Trailer

.
"Sometimes you make choices in life and sometimes choices make you."
Oh the FEELS! I didn't know 'If I Stay' trailer released yesterday; but thanks to Tumblr I know now! I am so anticipating this movie adaptation because If I Stay is one of my most favorite YA book ever! It is full of heartwarming scenes and I'm pretty sure I will get emotional when I watch the movie - just like I did with the book. The trailer is two-and-a-half minutes long, so it shows quite a lot of highlights in the movie. One thing I'm a bit disappointed about though: Adam! Jamie Blackley is definitely not the Adam I imagined as I read the book :'(( He better deliver Adam's character perfectly in the movie, or I will rant in my movie adaptation review. So without further delay, here is the trailer - for those who haven't seen it ;)

Top 5 Wednesday: Top Siblings

.
image source: here. edited by me.
I was quite hesitant about this week's Top 5 Wednesday, because I find it difficult for me to make a choice. Not because I had too many choices (like the Top Quotes), but rather I don't have that much choices in mind. This week's topic is to choose the Top 5 Siblings - in the fictional literary world, I think. So I started browsing through my mind, and it seems like most of the books that I read doesn't include much significant siblings in the story. But I have promised myself to keep joining this tag, so that I can keep the blog updated when I haven't finish my book reviews. So here goes my best try in choosing my favorite literary siblings :))
