Best Books I've Read In 2017 So Far

No comments :

Before I start, I want to say Happy Eid Al-Fitr for those who celebrate it. May Allah bless you with happiness and grace your family with warmth and peace. Onto the post, This is a part of Top Ten Tuesday, a weekly feature hosted by The Broke and The Bookish. This week's theme is best books you've read in 2017 so far. Up until now, I've read 30 books. I enjoyed reading most of them, but not to the extent that I'd call my favorites. So, for this top ten Tuesday, I only include seven books. The books on this list may or may not be still on the list by the end of this year. By the way, I mention them in the chronological order starting from the book I read earlier this year.

It's been a while since I last post a bookish list. The last bookish list I post was Top 5 Authors I Want to Read More From in April. I miss posting these lists. It's fun, which is why I'm doing it again. Today's post is a part of Top Ten Tuesday, a weekly feature hosted by The Broke and The Bookish. This week's theme is series I've been meaning to start but haven't. If you've been following this blog for a while, you'll realize some titles I'll mention have popped up quite frequently before.

Hai. Namaku Audy. Umurku 22 tahun. 
Hidupku tadinya biasa-biasa saja, sampai kedua orangtuaku jatuh bangkrut karena ditipu. 
Aku hanya tinggal selangkah lagi menuju gelar sarjanaku. Selangkah lagi! 
Tapi kedua orangtuaku rupanya tega merusak momen itu. Jadi sekarang, di sinilah aku berada. Di rumah aneh yang dihuni oleh 4 bersaudara yang sama anehnya: Regan, Romeo, Rex dan Rafael. 
Aku, yang awalnya berpikir akan bekerja sebagai babysitter, dijebak oleh kontrak sepihak dan malah dijadikan pembantu! 
Terdengar klise? 
Mungkin, bagimu. Bagiku? Musibah! 
Ini, adalah kronik dari kehidupanku yang mendadak jadi ribet. Kronik dari seorang Audy. 


[Review] I'd Tell You I Love You, But Then I'd Have to Kill You - Ally Carter

Title of Book: I'd Tell You I Love You But Then I'd Have to Kill You
Series: Gallagher Girls #1
Author: Ally Carter
Publisher: Hyperion Paperbacks
Publication Year: 2007
Language: English
Format: paperback
Pages: 284




The Gallagher Academy for Exceptional Young Women is a fairly typical all-girls school, that is, if every school taught advanced martial arts in PE, the latest in chemical warfare in science; and students received extra credit for breaking CIA codes computer class. So in truth, Gallagher Academy might claim to be a school for geniuses, but its really a school for spies. Cammie Morgan is a second generation Gallagher Girl, and by her sophomore year she's already fluent in fourteen languages and capable of killing a man in seven different ways (three of which involve a piece of uncooked spaghetti.) But the one thing the Gallagher Academy hasn't prepared her for is what to do when she falls for an ordinary boy who thinks she's an ordinary girl. Sure, she can tap his phone, hack into his computer, and track him through a mall without his ever being the wiser, but can she have a regular relationship with a regular boy who can never know the truth about her? Cammie may be an elite spy in training, but in her sophomore year, shes beginning her most dangerous mission; she's falling in love.

Hello fellow readers, it's the start of a new month and it's time for another wrap-up. Let me tell you, I'm happy with what I read in May. I read a total of 7 books! se-ven! That's a lot for me. I also managed to start a series which been sitting on my shelf for years (and finished it! But technically I read the last book in June so it doesn't count). Anyhoo, here are the books I read in May.

Heroes and villains, dark and light, good and evil. Selalu ada dua sisi berlawanan di setiap hal, but is it really that simple? Tema itulah yang dibahas di Nimona, komik/ novel grafis karya Noel Stevenson. Nimona adalah seorang shapeshifter (pengubah bentuk) yang beraspirasi untuk menjadi penjahat. Ia pun 'mendaftarkan' dirinya untuk menjadi asisten Lord Ballister Blackheart, seorang penjahat ternama. Bila ada penjahat, tentu ada pahlawan. Di dunia Nimona, Sir Ambrosius Goldenloin adalah pahlawan yang menjadi musuh bebuyutan Lord Blackheart. Bersama Nimona, Lord Blackheart ingin membuktikan bahwa pahlawan dan penjahat tidaklah sehitam-putih yang orang-orang duga.
