One, because I join The Beat The Heat Readthon which will be my very first readathon I join. This will totally pump up my reading mood!
Two, because In Time novella by Alexandra Bracken has been released although I can't buy it because it's not available in Indonesia. BUT I'm still happy! I'll find a way to buy it!
Three, because I'm going to have vacation to Thailand with my family. I've never visited Thailand, but I've heard they have some cheap books :D
The books I get this month :
Dear diary, I represent my first classic book. I've never read classic, and if I'm going to read one, Pride and Prejudice is my answer. So when I went to Artha Gading, I bought it because I didn't find any other book I want to buy.
I've heard mix reviews about it, I was kinda doubt to buy it. But then I read Mae's review on Bookworms Avenue and I become so interested. When the book finally ready on store (It needs more than a month until a book is available on store, seriously..), I bought it immediately. I'm currently reading it, so far I like it! :)
Here's Mae's Reboot review.
I didn't plan to buy it, but I found it on store. And because I have this buying problem and this book contains the awesome Kenji Kishimoto, I bought it too XD
This is a comic/graphic novel made by local author, Mage. This is the sequel of the 1st book Shangrila : The Pilgrimage To The Broken Past. I like the 2nd better. I thought I would disappointed because the main character is not Ayu, BUT it's just amazing and not like what I thought. I won't spoil you, but I'm very satisfied even though I didn't have Ayu (and Kunti!). So excited for the 3rd book!
Opentrolley gave away 25K voucher on GRI birthday and I ordered this book with one other book :) I've followed Kasie West on twitter for a while, she's very nice. I've also heard positive reviews about Pivot Point and I was really tempted to buy it XD I have read this book and I LOVE it!
Here's the review : Pivot Point Review
I actually wanted to wait for paperback, but I saw the paperback color is changed to pink or purple. I like the orange on the cover and I don't want the color changed so I bought hardcover edition. Moreover, the sequel cover, Let The Storms Break, is ultimately gorgeous and I'm really weak with beautiful cover so why not having hardcover collections for this series? And who knows the last book maybe has bright blue sky which is my favorite color XD
I preodered it on Opentrolley with hope I would get the book faster and read it asap. I was wrong, I felt disappointed. I didn't get the book until today (the book was released on July 2nd). I sent email to customer service because I had't got the estimation date. So the shipment has a problem, my order was reprocessed after 2 weeks from release date. Glad Opentrolley really concerned with my complaint and the customer service is so helpful to give information I need :)
After finishing The Selection, I went straight to The Elite by Kiera Cass. I think The Elite should be mixed up with The One. I mean, nothing really happened there.
The Elite review
The 2nd book I read is The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin. I like it and look forward for the next one :) I made a review for it.
The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer review
The 3rd book I read, which is my favorite of the month, is The 5th Wave by Rick Yancey. Seriously the best book I read this year so far, after The Darkest Minds ofcourse. I also made a review :)
The 5th Wave review
I got reading slump after reading The 5th Wave. My mind still stucked with aliens. After a few days, I picked up Anna and The French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins. Thank God I chose it because it pimped up my reading mood and I love the book! I said I'm not a fan of contemporary novels, but Stephanie Perkins has changed me. I've ordered 3 romance contemporary novels (including Lola) which will arrive next month XD
Anna and The French Kiss review
After finishing Anna and The French Kiss, I was back to reading slump because my mind was stuck in Paris.
