May 2018 Book Haul


Oh my gosh, we're already entering the sixth month of 2018 ๐Ÿ˜ฑ Isn't it crazy how time flies so fast? May was quite a busy month for me because there are a lot of events and I also went on a trip to Papua for several days. Despite my busy schedule, I still managed to get myself several new books ๐Ÿ˜†. In May, I bought 1 English book, 2 Indonesian books, 2 Bible study books, and several ebooks which I'll share the details with you in this post. I finished and reviewed one book from this pile, so I feel quite happy about that. Now let's talk about the books! ๐Ÿ˜Š

Pulang by Tere Liye | Book Review
I spotted this book when I went to the bookstore this month and decided to buy it out of impulse (because the blurb on the back cover doesn't really explain what the story is about ๐Ÿค”). Turns out, it is a sequel to another book Tere Liye that I've read and reviewed (Pulang). I finished reading and have posted my full review on this book.

The Trials of Apollo: The Burning Maze by Rick Riordan
Finally the third book is out! I can't read it yet though because of my habit of waiting until the series is completely published and then I marathon them from start to finish. I heard a lot of great things about this series and I've always loved Rick Riordan's writing. Can't wait until I get start reading them all! ๐Ÿ˜†
#DearTomorrow: Notes to My Future Self by Maudy Ayunda
This was quite an impulsive buy when I went to the bookstore ๐Ÿ˜‚. I found out about this book from an Instagram story post from someone who's a big fan of Maudy Ayunda. I heard this book is visually pleasing and it's a short and beautiful book to read. So when I saw it on display at the bookstore, I decided to bring it home with me. ๐Ÿ˜Œ
Nehemiah Study Book | She Reads Truth
1 & 2 Corinthians Study Book | She Reads Truth
This month I acquired two study books from She Reads Truth. I'm really excited to start reading the study book on 1 & 2 Corinthians. As usual, these study books are always so beautifully designed. ๐Ÿ˜

Norse Mythology by Neil Gaiman
I recently become increasingly interested in Norse mythology—no, not because of Thor the superhero ๐Ÿ™„—after seeing the gameplay of God of War 4. ๐Ÿ˜‚ Basically the game was set around Norse mythology and I was intrigued. Soon after, I saw this book on Goodreads and decided to get the ebook. I've only read one book by Neil Gaiman so far (and it's a pretty weird one), but I have high hopes for this one.
Cold-Case Christianity by J. Warner Wallace
Few weeks ago I attended an apologetic seminar at my church and the speaker recommended this book which really intrigued me. It's about the gospel from the perspective of a homicide detective. I'm looking forward to reading this one very soon!
Crucial Questions series by R.C. Sproul
The last one is a series of ebooks written by R.C. Sproul, called the Crucial Questions series. It consists of 28 books that tackles the basic and important questions about Christianity. I really admire R.C. Sproul and am looking forward to start reading these. Each book is quite short, around 100 pages each, so it shouldn't take too long to read them. ๐Ÿค“

That's all for this month's haul! I actually have several more books that I got in May, but I'm going to share it in a separate post because it's a special unboxing ๐Ÿ˜„. As usual, if you have any new book recommendations for me, feel free to share it in the comments below! See you in the next one! ๐Ÿ˜‰
