TV Series Adaptation Review: Outlander Season 1

.
image source: here. edited by me.
Hello! This is the first post of a new feature that I will start on this blog, which is a TV series adaptation review. And to start off this new feature, I'm reviewing a TV series that I didn't plan on watching in the first place: Outlander. I watched it because my Mom loves historical dramas which sets in places like England/Scotland and such. Even though this genre of TV series is not a genre I prefer, I'm still very much intrigued because it received so much love and quite a lot of hype. There are 8 episodes in the first part of season 1, and I will be talking about the overall plot in general as well as my personal opinion about it. Sadly I won't be able to compare it with the original novels because I haven't (and won't) read them. And I will try my best not to spoil too much for those of you who're interested in watching the TV series :)

February Wrap-Up // March TBR | 2015

.
image source: here. edited by me.
The second month is almost over and we're entering the third month, March! I still feel time flies by so fast each and every month. New year just seemed like yesterday, and we're almost at the first quarter of 2015. This month I read 6 (almost 7) books, which is quite okay, even though I hoped I could've read a bit more than that. A lot of things happened in February, that's why I couldn't read as much as I wanted. So here are the books I've read and reviewed this month, non-review posts in February, and a list of books I'm planning to read in March.

February 2015: Book Haul

.
 
I got a little bit crazy (yet again) with my book buying this month.... Most of the books in this haul are ordered last month; and I just realized that I ordered a LOT of books. There are 16 books in total (in the picture above, there's one book that's not supposed to be there) : 6 Indonesian books and 10 English booksand there are 3 non-fiction books in this pile. Things got a little bit out of control because of the Periplus voucher I received after redeeming my points.... ㅠㅠ I've only read 7 of these books so far..... so I've got a lot of reading to do. I will include the book reviews for the books I've read in the details below :) Now let me introduce you to my new batch of books! ;)

"Apakah mantan narapidana itu bukan manusia? Apa mantan narapidana itu sudah pasti orang yang jahat? Pantas saja orang-orang mantan narapidana seperti saya ini selalu ingin pergi menghilang dari dunia ini karena dianggap buruk oleh semua orang. Orang berpendidikan seperti Anda saja memperlakukan kami seperti ini."

Akan tetapi, setelah Hwi Chan keluar dari penjara pun ia masih harus menghadapi ketidakadilan lingkungan sosial yang memiliki prasangka atas dirinya karena ia adalah seorang mantan narapidana.

Amazon Online Bookstore Review

.
Another online bookstore to review! And this time it's none other than the almighty Amazon.com. Before I knew the existence of The Book Depository, Amazon was the only place that could provide me a complete collection of English/International books. The first time I made a purchase through Amazon was in 2011, and over the years, Amazon has evolved and made a lot of things more convenient for the customers. Actually, Amazon has almost everything available for sale, such as: clothing, gadgets, beauty products, home supplies, and many more. But for this post, I will only focus on the books department (which can be navigated at the top left corner of the site). Here's my review on my shopping experience at Amazon.

"Keangkuhannya tidak berkurang sedikit pun meskipun dalam keadaan seperti itu. Dan dia menikmatinya. Di dunia ini ada banyak hal yang harus dikhawatirkan. Hal-hal itu bisa jadi masalah keluarga, prestasi dan obsesi untuk menjadi yang terbaik. Karena itu hal-hal sepele seperti takut terlihat jelek di depan orang lain tidak lagi terlalu penting."
Keluarga Sadjana memang tampak seperti keluarga yang harmonis di mata orang lain, namun kenyataannya tidak demikian. Anna dan kakak lelakinya, Erash, sudah lama tidak berbicara satu sama lain. Dan kedua orangtua mereka selalu sibuk dan hanya mengurus urusannya sendiri. Dulu keluarga mereka tidak sedemikian menyedihkan, namun semuanya berubah saat Papa dan Mama hampir bercerai. Sejak saat itu, Anna membenci Erash, dan selalu berusaha keras agar bisa menandingi kepintaran Erash.
