January Wrap-Up // February TBR | 2015

image source: here. edited by me.
Hello! How's your first month of the year? I still can't believe how it seems like January just passed by so quickly. Don't you feel that way too? Because it seems it was just yesterday that we celebrated the new year. Because last month I didn't read that much book, I tried my best to make up for it and pushed myself harder to read more books. And I'm quite satisfied with the number of books I've read this month. Although it's not that much, it's obviously a little bit more than the number of books I usually read. So here are the books I've read and reviewed this month, non-review posts in January, and a list of books I'm planning to read in February.

January 2015: Book Haul


Ummm... so... I guess my Christmas mood is still lingering because I don't know why this month I kept buying new books. There's just something very satisfying about making a book purchase. Do you know what I mean, book hoarders out there? I hope I'm not the only one who feels this way. This month I acquired a total of 11 books (so far), 3 non-fiction books, and the rest are fiction which includes 5 Indonesian books and 3 English ones. I have read 4 books from this pile, so I will include the links to my reviews as well :)) Here are the pretty books!

I Mustache You Some Questions!


So this is actually not a very book-related post, but I guess it's okay because I've been tagged by Claire @ Cover to Cover to do this (thanks, Claire!). The questions itself is more about personal stuff; and I have to list four answers to each question. There are 12 questions in total, so without further delay, let's jump right into it! Here are my answers :))

Movie Adaptation Review: The Best of Me

image source: here. edited by me.
read my book review on The Best of Me
"You are my dearest friend, my deepest love. You are the best of me."
I'm so happy that I finally get to watch the movie adaptation of The Best of Me, because I really enjoyed the book last year. And oh my gosh, I love James Marsden in this movie! I know I'm supposed to feel sad after watching this movie, but since I have already knew the story beforehand and experienced the sadness then, I guess it wasn't so bad the second time around. Even so, watching the movie is a different kind of experience; especially because there are a lot of changes in the plot—which I will discuss further later on. So here's my non-spoiling review for the movie adaptation of The Best of Me. *Also don't forget check out the movie soundtrack by Colbie Caillat below, because I love it so much :')) The song and lyrics is perfect for the movie as well. ↓↓↓↓

Opini Bareng: Ekspektasi

image source: here. edited by me.
Setelah sekian lama tidak ikut posting bareng BBI karena buku yang aku baca nggak pernah cocok dengan tema-nya, akhirnya sebagai pembuka tahun ini aku ikut salah satu event baru BBI: yaitu Opini Bareng. Bagi yang belum familiar dengan opini bareng, setiap bulannya BBI memilih satu topik tertentu untuk dibahas oleh member BBI—dan cara penulisannya pun bebas dalam bentuk apa saja. Sudah ada beberapa member BBI yang membuat post ini dan tentu saja menjadi inspirasiku, karena awalnya aku tidak tahu mau mulai dari mana. Untuk mengawali post ini, aku akan membahas beberapa bacaanku bulan ini yang berhubungan dengan ekspektasi.

Movie Adaptation Review: The Kite Runner

image source: here. edited by me.
read my short review on The Kite Runner
"For you, a thousand times over."
FEELSSS. SUCH A GOOD MOVIE. It's been such a long time since I read this book, almost 5 years ago, and I literally forgot how heartbreaking this story can be. I think I knew this book was adapted into a movie in 2007, but I was never interested in watching it. So what made me decide to watch it? Recently I read a review of The Kite Runner, and the reader explained how great the book is. And at that point, I seriously want to reread the book. But due to my TBR pile (of course), I stopped myself from doing so. And I thought watching the movie adaptation will take shorter time to relive the story—even though it wouldn't be exactly the same like the book. In the end I didn't regret my decision; because it is indeed an incredible story, and also a good movie to watch. Here's my non-spoiling review on the movie adaptation of The Kite Runner.
