Movie Adaptation Review: Gone Girl

read my review on Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn
"What have we done to each other? What will we do?"
I was so happy when I finally found Gone Girl's movie adaptation! After finished reading the book, I'm really curious how the movie will try to deliver the story. Because it can be quite tricky with all the flashbacks and going back and forth between Nick and Amy in the book. But after I finished watching the movie, it turns out they did an amazing job. And now I also understand why this movie didn't get to premiere in my country. There's nudity, sexual content, lots of cursing, and also blood in it. So for those of you who planned to watch this, please make sure you're at an appropriate age to watch those things. Without further ado, here's my non-spoiling review on the movie adaptation of Gone Girl.

"I hoped that after he succeeded in the Titan War and saved Mount Olympus, we might have some peace. I might be able to enjoy one final triumph, a happy ending, and perhaps retire quietly. I should have known better. The last chapter approaches, just as it did before. The worst is yet to come."
Jason suddenly woke up in the backseat of a school bus without a single memory on his mind. He couldn't even remember his name, and couldn't recall the two people who claimed to be his best friends: a pretty girl called Piper who said she's his girlfriend, and a boy named Leo. They are on a field trip to the Grand Canyon when suddenly one of their classmates turned into a Venti—storm spirit—and started attacking them. Their trip leader, Coach Hedge, who then turned into a satyr sacrificed himself and saved the three of them. Soon after the fight, a girl named Annabeth arrived on a flying chariot whilst looking for her missing boyfriend, Percy Jackson. The three of them are told that they are demigods, children of gods and mortals. And they are taken to Camp Half-Blood, to figure out what's exactly happening.

Introducing Taste Life Twice by Ayu Prameswary & Windry Ramadhina

Taste Life Twice

Beberapa waktu yang lalu, aku dihubungi oleh pendiri blog Taste Life Twice yaitu Ayu Prameswary dan Windry Ramadhina. Dan jika kalian belum tahu, Windry Ramadhina adalah salah satu penulis lokal favoritku, yang setiap bukunya akan otomatis aku beli. Kedua teman yang sama-sama bekerja di dunia buku ini memiliki kesukaan yang sama, yaitu menimbun buku—termasuk buku tulis/notebook. Di e-mail yang mereka kirimkan untukku, keduanya menawarkan suvenir sebagai perayaan peluncuran blog Taste Life Twice. Dan ternyata yang mereka kirimkan adalah sebuah notebook cantik dan juga surat perkenalan. Mari aku perkenalkan lebih lanjut tentang Taste Life Twice :))

Top 5 Wednesday: Historical Books

image source: here. edited by me.
Welcome backkk to another Top 5 Wednesday! This month's topic is to choose Top 5 Historical Fiction and it's actually quite difficult for me to do. Over the years of reading, I don't read much historical fiction books—even though I enjoyed reading them. After making this post, I'm seriously considering to read more books from that genre, because some of the books I listed below are my favorite books. Without further delay, here are my top historical fiction books in no particular order.

Reading Distractions.

image source: here. edited by me.
I need to make a confession by writing this post and say that I've been distracted A LOT this year. Even though I read a decent amount of books this year, I think I could actually read more if it weren't for these other stuffs that I've been doing. Yes, I still read every single day; but most of the time I started reading around 11-12PM, right before I go to sleep. The reason being that I had so many distractions around me every day, that kept me from reading during the day. So by making this post, I hope to realize what my distractions are and try my best to minimize the insignificant stuffs I've been doing. I hope some of you find similarities in our reading distractions, so I won't feel too guilty about this....
