So.... more books came this month—but obviously, I'm not complaining. I've got 12 books this month, 6 books I received from publishers/authors, 1 from winning a competition, and 5 books I purchased on my own. In this pile, there are 7 Indonesian books and 4 English books; most of the Indonesian books I've read so I'm not adding too much to my TBR pile this month. I'm always trying to stop myself from buying books, but sometimes I just can't. Anyways, without further ado here are the new additions to my bookshelves :))
In a Blue Moon by Ilana Tan | Fiction
This was the best surprise I received in March, because it was totally unexpected! I actually pre-ordered this book at Grazera for 15% off on March 3rd, and few days later the book is in my mail! Oh my God, I cannot express how happy I was that day. That package totally made my day, and I feel so blessed because I was one of 50 lucky readers to receive this advanced SIGNED-copy. Again, I'd like to express my gratitude to Gramedia, and also to Dionisius Wisnu for the heartwarming letter inside the package :')) I read the book right after I received it, and already reviewed it as well :) You can click on the title above to check out my review ;)
The Wind Leading to Love by Ibuki Yuki | Fiction
Received this book from the publisher, Penerbit Haru, as part of a blog tour :) This one is a Japanese-translated book, and that cover is absolutely stunning! Check out my review and giveaway for this book tomorrow ;)
Love With a Witch by Hyun Go Wun | Fiction
Second book I got from Penerbit Haru, but I'm not joining the blog tour for this one. This is the 4th Hyun Go Wun's book I've read so far, and I always love the concept of her stories :)) Read and reviewed this as well, so click on the title to see my full book review.
Intertwine by FLOCK | Fiction
The third and last book from Penerbit Haru, and this one is also for a blog tour event! I'm so excited for this book because it's written by 5 authors: Fei, Lia Indra Andriana, Orizuka, Clara Canceriana, and KP Januwarsi. It's a collection of short stories that intertwine with each other. My blog tour post is scheduled on April 10th, and there will also be a giveaway for this book the day after ;)
Not a Perfect Wedding by Asri Tahir | Fiction
This book I received from the author/publisher, Asri Tahir and Elex Media, for (yet another) blog tour purpose :) I really love the idea of the story that's related to marriage. For the blog tour I posted a series of quotes taken from the book, as well as a book review :) You can click the title above to read my full review on this book.
Kismet by Nina Addison | Fiction
The Ask and The Answer by Patrick Ness | Fiction
Last month, in my February Book Haul, I posted the first book of this series—and now the second book has finally arrived! This one I also ordered from Book Depository, and I can't wait to finally marathon this popular series :') Isn't that cover beautiful?
Cress by Marissa Meyer | Fiction
Another book I ordered from Book Depository last month, and it has finally arrived! Now my Lunar Chronicles series is complete (so far), I only have to wait for the fourth and final book to come out before I can marathon this series. Hopefully I'll enjoy it as much as other people do :))
Bulan by Tere-Liye | Fiction
Akkk! The excitement! I've been waiting so long for this book to come out! This book is the sequel to Bumi by Tere-Liye, and I instantly ordered it at the author's official online bookstore—so I can get an autograph too. I had so many books I have to read this month so I still haven't started this one yet. Hopefully next month I'll be able to read and review it ;)
I always hesitate when I saw this book at the bookstore, because I'm not really sure I will love the story—but that cover is so gorgeous, I want to have it. So when I went to the bookstore and saw this book, I had to bring it home with me.... Hopefully I'll enjoy it. Any of you read this book yet? What did you think about it? :))
The Strange Library by Haruki Murakami | Fiction
This is a prize I received from winning Dare to Blog competition by Periplus. I've never read a Murakami book before, but I'm always curious because he's so popular. I actually owned some of his other books, but I think I might start reading this soon because it's quite short :) Oh, and I also received a 100K e-Voucher from Periplus—so I ordered a book, but it hasn't arrived yet. Anyway, thanks again Periplus!
To be completely honest.... I actually purchased some more books near the end of March—but I didn't have the time to take more pictures to add to this post. So those books are going to be included in my next book haul :)) Have you read any of the books I got this month? What books did you buy in March? Feel free to share your own book haul in the comments below :D I'm always interested to see what other people got from the bookstores ;) Okay, bye now!
