Sometimes choices—like change—can’t be avoided. A bittersweet story of love and family from National Book Award finalist Deb Caletti.
Cricket has a very long week ahead of her. Her entire family has come together for her mom’s wedding, and it’s supposed to be a time for celebration. But for Cricket, the timing couldn’t be worse.
For years Cricket’s been half of the perfect couple, destined to be together forever. Now, because of what she’s done—something she would give anything to take back—Janssen has walked away. Maybe for good.
Cricket has always panicked in the face of change. Now she is forced to face her fears and decide once and for all what she wants, and how she’s going to get it. For over the course of the week, secrets will be revealed, bonds will be tested, and Cricket’s confusion—and her desires—may very well send her spiraling down a path she never thought she’d take...with no idea where it will lead her.

Suatu malam, aku didorong jatuh dari tebing.
Untungnya aku selamat.

Dengan tubuh baruku, aku bertekad mencari pembunuhku.
Tersangkanya, teman sekelas.
Total 35 orang.
Salah satunya adalah pembunuhku.

The Angels are naked and androgynous. They speak in a dreadful harmony with no clear leader. These aren’t biblical cherubs tasked with the protection of the righteous – these are deadly creatures of light that have the power to completely eradicate.

April 2016 Wrap-Up and Favorites

No comments :

It’s May already. We’re almost in the middle of the year. Time sure flies by. So much happening in April. I read a satisfying amount of books. I even managed to find a favorite book. I watched quite a lot of movies and TV shows. I watched some of the 87th Academy Awards nominees such as Brooklyn, Carol, The Danish Girl, and Spotlight. With movies and TV shows, I can watch them while doing other things at the same time. I can’t do that with books, except audiobooks which I’m not used to. I have to finish my thesis this semester so I’ve been working on that bit by bit. It took most of my time in April so I cut back my reading time. Anyway, enough with the chit chat and let’s start with the books I read in April.
