"Mendadak, semuanya menjadi jelas untukku. Ini adalah tahun terburuk yang akan kujalani. Aku tak tahu apa bisa melaluinya atau tidak. Tanpa Matt. Tanpa Mary. Ditambah lagi, entah mengapa, aku memiliki firasat kalau cowok kekanakan bernama Tyler alias Ty alias Mr. Alien ini akan merecoki hidupku."
Kehidupan Emily Cox berubah suram semenjak sahabat sekaligus tetangganya, Mary, harus pindah ke kota lain; dan ia baru saja putus dari pacar sekaligus teman masa kecilnya, Matt. Mengingat kebiasaannya menulis surat dalam pesawat kertas dan menerbangkannya ke teras kamar Mary, Emily menulis semua keluh kesahnya dan menerbangkan sejumlah pesawat ke kamar yang sudah kosong itu. Tidak Emily ketahui sebelumnya bahwa keluarga Adams akan menjadi tetangganya yang baru. Saat Emily hendak memungut semua pesawat kertasnya, ia malah bertemu dengan lelaki iseng yang mengaku sebagai seorang alien. Mr. Alien itu kemudian ia kenal sebagai salah satu anak keluarga Adams, lelaki bernama Tyler yang akan mengusik kehidupan Emily.

Although I might be away on my holiday trip, I already scheduled this post so I won't miss this week's Top 5 Wednesday. This week's topic is actually a bit difficult for me; which is choosing Top 5 Favorite Titles. I've read plenty of books and have certainly came across many amazing book titles. So I've narrowed them down and choose the ones that are most memorable, beautiful, and felt intriguing to me. Without further delay, here's the list!

Top Ten Reasons I Love Being A Blogger/Reader

.

It's been too long since I last made a Top 10 Tuesday post (last one I posted was in May), so I chose an interesting topic from their older ones to post on this blog. The topic I chose is a really old one from February, which is to list Top 10 Reasons I Love Being a Blogger/Reader. I've been a blogger for 3 years now, and a reader for more than 10 years - and I certainly love doing both. So in this post, I'd like to share my 10 reasons why I love being a blogger and a reader :)) Here's the list in no particular order.

The TBR Tag

.
image source: here. edited by me.
Actually I already pre-scheduled this post after I discovered this tag from GReads! blog, because I thought it would be a refreshing post to publish while I'm away on my short holiday. The tag is originated by A Perfection Called Books; and I was suddenly tagged by Ratri @ Awesome Nerd . I am one of the many people who struggles to get through the TBR (To-Be-Read) pile. Sometimes I feel ashamed whenever people asked me questions like 'have you read all of your books?'; but then again it's also a relieve to have so many books I have yet to read. Without further ado, here are the questions and my answers about my TBR.

Some exciting news today! As I've probably mentioned in my previous wrap-up post, I will be going on a short holiday with my friend. To South Korea, my favorite travel destination (so far) ! YAYYY ! I will be going from 18 - 25 October; but thankfully I have a lot of posts scheduled to be published while I'm away—mostly are non-review post and 1 book review I think. So I will talk a little bit about our plans for this holiday, and some things that we wanted to do while in Seoul~♥

"A selfless act. Apa, sih, perbuatan tanpa mementingkan diri sendiri itu? Bukankah semua tindakan yang kita lakukan untuk orang lain itu selalu berujung pada pamrih meskipun orang-orang jarang mengakuinya?"
Luluk dan Sasa adalah sepasang suami-istri yang sifatnya sangat bertolak belakang. Luluk adalah seorang suami yang kalem dan penyabar, sedangkan Sasa sangat ambisius dan memiliki harga diri yang tinggi. Pernikahan mereka melalui kesulitan yang hebat saat Sasa keguguran; terlebih lagi setelah Sasa mendapat promosi dari tempatnya bekerja, ia selalu lebih fokus pada karirnya. Luluk mulai khawatir dengan keadaan pernikahan mereka, namun yang Sasa pikirkan hanyalah kedatangan orang baru di perusahaan yang mungkin dapat mengancam posisinya.
