The TBR Tag

.
image source: here. edited by me.
Actually I already pre-scheduled this post after I discovered this tag from GReads! blog, because I thought it would be a refreshing post to publish while I'm away on my short holiday. The tag is originated by A Perfection Called Books; and I was suddenly tagged by Ratri @ Awesome Nerd . I am one of the many people who struggles to get through the TBR (To-Be-Read) pile. Sometimes I feel ashamed whenever people asked me questions like 'have you read all of your books?'; but then again it's also a relieve to have so many books I have yet to read. Without further ado, here are the questions and my answers about my TBR.

Some exciting news today! As I've probably mentioned in my previous wrap-up post, I will be going on a short holiday with my friend. To South Korea, my favorite travel destination (so far) ! YAYYY ! I will be going from 18 - 25 October; but thankfully I have a lot of posts scheduled to be published while I'm away—mostly are non-review post and 1 book review I think. So I will talk a little bit about our plans for this holiday, and some things that we wanted to do while in Seoul~♥

"A selfless act. Apa, sih, perbuatan tanpa mementingkan diri sendiri itu? Bukankah semua tindakan yang kita lakukan untuk orang lain itu selalu berujung pada pamrih meskipun orang-orang jarang mengakuinya?"
Luluk dan Sasa adalah sepasang suami-istri yang sifatnya sangat bertolak belakang. Luluk adalah seorang suami yang kalem dan penyabar, sedangkan Sasa sangat ambisius dan memiliki harga diri yang tinggi. Pernikahan mereka melalui kesulitan yang hebat saat Sasa keguguran; terlebih lagi setelah Sasa mendapat promosi dari tempatnya bekerja, ia selalu lebih fokus pada karirnya. Luluk mulai khawatir dengan keadaan pernikahan mereka, namun yang Sasa pikirkan hanyalah kedatangan orang baru di perusahaan yang mungkin dapat mengancam posisinya.

Here we are again in another Top 5 Wednesday post ! This week's topic is to choose Top 5 Books that You Weren't Expecting to Like but Did - which I think is pretty difficult for me to choose; because I mostly read books that I expected to like. So I have a lot of the opposite (books that I expected to like, but didn't), but not so much for this one. However, I will try my best to list 5 books that are suitable for this list :)) So here are the books of my choice.

Dal-Hee adalah seorang calon dewi, dan untuk bisa menjadi dewi, para kandidat harus tujuh kali bereinkarnasi dengan sempurna. Sayangnya, Dal-Hee bukanlah contoh teladan karena ia masih harus menghabiskan banyak waktu sebelum ia berhasil menjadi dewi. Dan Dal-Hee berulah lagi saat ia mendengar seorang wanita yang meminta pertolongan dari bumi. Orang itu adalah Ji-Wan, wanita yang menjalani kehidupan yang kesepian dan menyedihkansehingga ia memohon agar Tuhan segera mengakhiri hidupnya. Dal-Hee yang turun ke bumi mendapati tunangan Ji-Wan bernama Min-Hyuk yang berjiwa gelap. Demi menepati janji Dal-Hee kepada Ji-Wan untuk memanusiakan jiwa Min-Hyuk, Dal-Hee kemudian masuk ke dalam tubuh Ji-Wan yang telah meninggal dan menjadi Ji-Wan yang baru.

Movie Adaptation Review: The Giver

MOVIE ADAPTATION of The Giver
"Memories are not just about the past; they determine our future."
I wasn't very excited about watching this actually, because there are a lot of complaints from the readers who've read the book about the movie adaptation. However, the movie adaptation was what made me want to read the book in the first place - so I can't not watch it. I didn't have high expectation because I know the book itself will be difficult to translate into movie. Surprisingly though, I really enjoy it - and I think the movie delivered the story beautifully. Here's my review on the movie adaptation of The Giver (there might be spoilers).
