*Semua gambar di review ini adalah hasil scan dari komik Tuti & Friends.

Tuti & Friends merupakan sebuah komik yang berawal dari Facebook, seperti komik Grey & Jingga yang aku review beberapa bulan yang lalu. Tetapi berbeda dengan Grey & Jingga yang mengangkat tema romance, komik Tuti & Friends ini menceritakan tentang persahabatan dan petualangan yang dilalui oleh sekumpulan karakter unyu dengan Tuti sebagai karakter utamanya. Selain itu, komik Tuti & Friends ini menyuguhkan comic strip yang belum pernah diterbitkan melalui Facebook sebelumnya. Jadi bagi para penggemar Tuti yang cadel ini, komik ini wajib dibeli dan dibaca ' 3 ' )

Movie Adaptation Review: The Book Thief

image source: here. edited by me.

It's been a few months since I finished reading the book, but only now do I finally make time to watch the movie adaptation - because I was a bit worried the movie would disappoint me if I watched it right after I'm done with the book. It turns out I was only disappointed a little. Although the movie definitely left out a whole bunch of important scenes because of the limited time, it still delivered the main plot and the important message of the story. So here's my (hopefully) non-spoiling review on the movie adaptation of The Book Thief.

✮ LINE Webtoon ✮

image source: here. edited by me.
So first of all, I'd like to say that I'm not promoting or anything with this post - I just want to have something to write in this blog after being absent for quite some time. I'm sorry I haven't been able to update much on this blog after my holiday, because I'm still a little bit jet-lagged and I needed to settle some other things first. Hopefully I can make a post about my holiday when I have time, because I'm obviously not done reading A Game of Thrones yet - so no book review for a while.
Now back to this post. I downloaded the LINE Webtoon App before I went on my holiday, so it's been around for several months now (I think) - and I'm super addicted to it! Basically it's a new way of reading comics through mobile devices. If you're reading online, you'll have to click next to flip the pages and sometimes it took a long time to load. However with this app, you just have to load once, and you can enjoy an episode by scrolling down the screen. You can even download your favorite comics and read them offline! I've been following several webtoons through this app (I haven't got the chance to read them all, but I'm planning to), and I'm going talk about this app a bit more and share my favorites webtoons in this post :)

"Yes, she had always been content. Everyone was, in the community. Their needs were tended to; there was nothing they lacked, nothing they.... That was it, Claire realized. She had never yearned for anything before. But now, ever since the day of the birth, she felt a yearning constantly, desperately, to fill the emptiness inside her.
She wanted her child."
Claire was assigned as a Birthmother when she was 12, and every Birthmother are supposed to produce three times before they're assigned as Laborers. But when Claire is about to produce her first product, something went wrong with the procedure and she was reassigned to the Fish Hatchery soon after. Claire sneaked into the Nurturing Center to find out about her son, number Thirty-Six, and she volunteered there just so she could see the baby. Claire felt deep affection towards the baby, a feeling she felt alone in the community because she never consumed the pills to suppress emotions. Later on, she found out her baby failed to thrive and was going to be released. The next day, a boy escaped the community to Elsewhere - bringing her son with him. And Claire sets off in search of her beloved son, not knowing the long and difficult journey that awaits her.

July Wrap-Up // August TBR | 2014

image source: here. edited by me.
So compared to last month, I read less books this month. Some of the books I read this month took me a week to finish. Which is really sad, because I want to read more books to slowly decrease my ever-growing TBR pile. But thankfully, I didn't buy any books this month! Which is awesome, although it means I can't write a book haul post. So here are the books I've read and reviewed this month, non-review posts in July, and lastly a list of books I'm planning to read in August.

On Holiday: 26 July - 9 August 2014 ♥

image source: here. edited by me.

Hello hello! Today I have an announcement to make; as you can probably guess by the title, I will be going on a holiday trip with my family from July 26th to August 9th. So as usual, there won't be any update on book reviews - but hopefully I will schedule a monthly wrap-up of what I've read so far in July as well as books I'm planning to read next month. And just like any other holiday trip, I'm taking books with me - but now with the help of my Kindle Paperwhite, I can bring tons of books without difficulties. For those who are also going on holidays, or maybe going back to your hometown, I wish everyone a safe trip! And even if you're just staying at home, I hope you have tons of fun during the holidays :))
