I got a little bit crazy (yet again) with my book buying this month.... Most of the books in this haul are ordered last month; and I just realized that I ordered a LOT of books. There are 16 books in total (in the picture above, there's one book that's not supposed to be there) : 6 Indonesian books and 10 English books—and there are 3 non-fiction books in this pile. Things got a little bit out of control because of the Periplus voucher I received after redeeming my points.... ㅠㅠ I've only read 7 of these books so far..... so I've got a lot of reading to do. I will include the book reviews for the books I've read in the details below :) Now let me introduce you to my new batch of books! ;)
The first one is a book I received from the author herself, Monica Petra, and I have no idea that it's going to be a non-fiction book. This is my first read in February, and you can read my review about the book if you'd like to know more about it :)
To be honest, I'm not a classics fan. This book was first published in 1951, and many people still read it during this modern days. I bought it from Book Depository for quite a cheap price. However, I'm not sure when I'll be reading this book... #guilty. But that cover is really pretty though :))The Catcher in the Rye by J.D. Salinger | Fiction
Ordered these two from Book Depository as well. This book has been on my wishlist for quite sometime, and I was about to buy it from Periplus. But the edition they sell was really ugly, so I decided to get this pretty edition :))
I've read this book back in 2012, and so you might ask, why I bought this book again? The answer is because I want to buy this edition to match my LOTR boxset edition. Please don't judge me.
Another book that I received from the author, and this one is from Nay Sharaya. It's a book written by two authors, with two different perspectives of the main character. Read and reviewed it already :)
This book was released back in 2014, and back then I wasn't very interested in it. But there are a lot of good reviews for this book, and another book-blogger recommended it to me. I'm planning to read this next month, so hopefully that'll happen. I got this book from Gramedia bookstore.Sabtu Bersama Bapak by Adhitya Mulya | Fiction
These two I received from Penerbit Haru, and the first one is a Korean-translated book. It's one of my favorite reads of this month, and I really liked the story. Read my review to know more about my opinion about the book :) I absolutely love the soft-looking cover ♥Angels of Morning Star Club by Lim Se Hyuk | Fiction | Book Review
Next one is kind of a comic book translated from Korean. I had so much fun reading this book and laughed a lot. Definitely love the illustration style and everything is just so cute! I have some photos in my review showing what the inside pages looks like. It's all in full-color!
Some of you might already saw this book in this post, because I bought it from Amazon. This book has been on my wishlist for quite a long time. I'm currently learning modern calligraphy and I thought this book will be a great guide for me :) Look at that beautiful writing! ♥♥♥Modern Calligraphy by Molly Suber Thorpe | Non-Fiction
These three books are my purchase from Periplus bookstore, using the voucher I got after I redeemed my PEC member points. I had the IDR 250,000 voucher, and the first book I picked up was this. I ordered the first 3 books of the Lunar Chronicles from Book Depository, so I thought it's okay to buy this novella to complete my collection. Even though the edition is different, I still think this book cover is so gorgeous (probably the main reason I picked it up in the first place).Fairest by Marissa Meyer | Fiction
Yes, I've also read this book, back in 2011. And why I bought this book again? It's actually has the same reason as my purchase for The Hobbit. Because I want to match my editions of The Hunger Games (I have Hunger Games and Mockingjay in this edition, but not for Catching Fire). I've wanted to do this for so long, because it's been bugging me how weird it looks! And now with the voucher I thought it will be a lot cheaper.... #excuses
And the third book from the same purchase is one that I've been wanting to get as well. Soon I will be starting the Legend trilogy by Marie Lu, and I've heard great things about it. I've also heard some pretty good reviews about this one as well :)The Young Elites by Marie Lu | Fiction
This one was also sent to me by Penerbit Haru, and this one is a Chinese-translated fiction. It's adapted into a TV series few years ago, and that definitely intrigued me. I finished reading it several days ago, but still working on the review which will be published early March.Endless Love by Wu Xiao Yue | Fiction
These two I also ordered from Book Depository. I heard tons of great things about the Lunar Chronicles and the series will end this year—so I'm preparing myself to start reading them soon. The story sounds very interesting, and that cover is also intriguing.
The second book of the Lunar Chronicles series that I'm also excited to read soon. I've ordered the third book, Cress, but still hasn't arrived yet.
And lastly, is the first book from a series I'm planning to read this year. It's published in 2008, and I also read a lot of good reviews about it. Several years ago a friend recommended it to me as well. The story sounds like it's just right up my alley ♥
I'm both happy and sad at the same time. Happy because I've got these amazing and beautiful books with me; but also sad because I failed in restraining my book buying this month ㅠㅠ Anyways, have you read any of the books I included in this haul? Or are you interested in reading any of them? :) And did you buy any books this month? I hope you did, because that will make me feel better ;) Okay then, see you in the next post! ;)
