February 2018 Book Haul

.

The second month of the year is over already 😱; so now it's time to recap the books that I've got during February. Starting this month, I will also include the new ebooks that I got—because lately I've really embraced the idea of ebooks and trying to be content with not having a physical copy. I want to include it here so I can keep count of the books that I added to my TBR 😁. In February, I bought 4 books and also acquired 4 ebooks (6 non-fiction and 2 fiction). There's only 1 Indonesian book from the pile, and there's also 1 sponsored/review book. Here they are!

Proverbs: Wisdom that Works by Raymond C. Ortlund Jr.
This book is part of Preaching the Word series, which I really want to collect because I absolutely love the elegant book covers 😍😍. I decided to get Proverbs first, because it's one of my favorite books in the Bible. Looking forward to reading this soon!
Live the Let-Go Life: Breaking Free from Stress, Worry, and Anxiety by Joseph Prince
I first heard about Joseph Prince back in 2016 from a church friend who loves to recommend his books. So when I discovered that Joseph Prince is publishing a new book, I decided to pre-order it from Book Depository. I'm also intrigued by the title which deals with stress, worry, and anxiety—which I think a lot of people experienced.I will definitely post a review when I finally get to read this book πŸ˜„πŸ˜„.
Ubur-Ubur Lembur by Raditya Dika | Book Review
Seeing this book at the bookstore was completely a surprise because I didn't know Raditya Dika is publishing a new book this year. I was contemplating at first whether to buy it or not, considering his previous book was just 'okay' for me. But oh well, I decided to pick it up because I needed a light and fun read at that time after finishing a quite depressing book, Laut Bercerita. Click on the link above to read my full review on this book 😊😊
Reading the Bible Supernaturally: Seeing and Savoring the Glory of God in Scripture by John Piper
Since last year, I've really enjoyed listening to John Piper and reading his articles on Desiring God website. One of the things that I really admire about John Piper is how he looks at Scripture and dives deep into it—extracting deeper meanings and understanding about the Bible πŸ€”. That's one of the main reasons why I bought this book in the first place. It's quite a lengthy book, so I'll take my time and read it slowly 😊.

Surprise Me by Sophie Kinsella
I definitely missed Sophie Kinsella's writing. My last favorite book by her was I've Got Your Number, which was absolutely hilarious and made me laugh out loud a lot whilst reading it. The last book of hers that I read was My Not So Perfect Life; and it was just okay. Hopefully this one would be able to rekindle my love for Sophie Kinsella's writing πŸ’–πŸ’–.
Minimalism: Live a Meaningful Life by J.F. Millburn
Since the beginning of 2018, I've been really into minimalism. And as I'm looking through articles and videos about minimalist living, I discovered The Minimalists podcasts on Youtube. Unfortunately, the reviews for this book on Goodreads isn't the best. So I'm glad I found the e-book version of this book πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚.

12 Rules for Life: An Antidote to Chaos by Jordan Peterson
I got this e-book out of the blue; because I never knew about the author or the book before. It's a self-help book and I'm interested because the reviews on Goodreads are quite promising.
Kiss the Wave: Embracing God in Your Trials by Dave Furman
The last book in this haul makes me the happiest! Because I got this book after I applied for Crossway Blog Review Program, and I was approved! I get to pick 2 ebooks each month to be reviewed and this is my first choice! I'm so intrigued by the title and I think that book cover is just too beautiful! πŸ˜†πŸ˜†


Those are all the books that I got this month. I've finished reading two books from this pile, and I'm currently reading Kiss the Wave. Are there any books from this pile that interests you? Or do you have any new releases to recommend? Feel free to share it in the comments below! 😘😘
