"How had it begun? Like everything: with mothers and fathers. Because of Lidya's mother and father, because of her mother's and father's mothers and fathers. Because long ago, her mother had gone missing, and her father had brought her home. Because more than anything, her mother had wanted to stand out; because more than anything, her father had wanted to blend in. Because those things had been impossible.
On May 1977, Lydia's dead body is found in Middlewood Lake, at the center of town. She is the middle child of a Chinese-American family, and no one knows the story behind her sudden death. Upon discovering, Lydia's family members are devastated. They tried to cope with the situation in their own way. But things got worse and more relationships are severed as they tried to determine the mystery behind Lydia's death.

Top 5 Wednesday: Best Books You've Read So Far in 2018

.
 
We've gone through the first half of 2018, so it's time to take a look back at the books I've read these past 6 months. So far I've read 24 books and there are several that have become my favorites. There's also a Top Ten Tuesday tag for this topic, but I don't think I have that many books to list, so I decided to stick with Top 5 Wednesday instead. This was supposed to be the topic for the first week of July, but what can I do, I don't really have that much time to write these days ๐Ÿ˜Œ. Without further ado, here are some of my favorite books that I've read so far in 2018 (in no particular order) ๐Ÿ˜Š.

June 2018 Book Haul

.

June was a pretty hectic month for me, that's why I haven't been able to post any reviews lately on this blog even though I've finished some books already. I really enjoyed the long holiday in June, I even went on a short trip out of town for 2 days which was quite refreshing ๐Ÿ˜Š Last month, I only went to the bookstore 2-3 times and only got myself 3 English books from Periplus. Aside from that, I also accumulated some more ebooks that piqued my interest. So here they are!

Top 5 Wednesday: Books You Want to Read Before the End of the Year

.
 
Hello! Back again with another Top 5 Wednesday post! This week's topic is not necessarily new, because I've done several posts that are similar to this one. That's why this time around I will carefully choose the books that I really want to read before this year ends. Usually, I pick book series that I'm really interested in; but this time I will choose 5 standalone books that I'm dying to read very soon—hopefully before the year ends. So here they are!

"Ini pasti mimpi.
Mendengar bahwa di tubuhku ada entah-apa yang akan membunuhku 39 hari kemudian, itu sesuatu yang hanya bisa kau alami dalam mimpi. Benar, bukan?"
Hampir empat tahun lamanya penantian Frea sejak kejadian mengenaskan yang mengakibatkan Liquor dan Night harus dipenjara. Setelah sekian lama menunggu, akhirnya Frea bisa kembali memiliki Liquor, tunangannya, di sisinya kembali dan berharap untuk menjalani kehidupan mereka dengan normal—tidak lagi sebagai pencuri yang mereka jalani selama ini. Liquor dan Night adalah bagian dari komplotan pencuri bernama Arthropods yang dipimpin oleh Paman Frea. Misi mereka adalah untuk mencuri dari orang kaya dan membagikannya untuk orang yang lebih membutuhkan. Setelah keluar dari penjara mereka bertekad untuk meninggalkan kehidupan mereka yang lama. Sayangnya, harapan mereka tidak akan semudah itu terwujud.
