Wishful Wednesday #46


Huhuhu... udah lama banget gak bikin WW... karena emang udah lama juga gak ngapdet blog >.<
Kebetulan... [padahal sih emang sengaja], ada Giveaway, jadilah dirajin2in bikin WW minggu ini :D

Norse Mythology by Neil Gaiman

In Norse Mythology, Gaiman fashions primeval stories into a novelistic arc that begins with the genesis of the legendary nine worlds; delves into the exploits of the deities, dwarves, and giants; and culminates in Ragnarok, the twilight of the gods and the rebirth of a new time and people. Gaiman stays true to the myths while vividly reincarnating Odin, the highest of the high, wise, daring, and cunning; Thor, Odin’s son, incredibly strong yet not the wisest of gods; and Loki, the son of giants, a trickster and unsurpassable manipulator. From Gaiman’s deft and witty prose emerges the gods with their fiercely competitive natures, their susceptibility to being duped and to dupe others, and their tendency to let passion ignite their actions, making these long-ago myths breathe pungent life again.

Tapi harganya pricey banget T_T - bisa beli di BookDepo Rp235.635.

So... klo menang, aku sih pengen ini aja...

We Have Always Lived in the Castle by Shirley Jackson

Taking readers deep into a labyrinth of dark neurosis, We Have Always Lived in the Castle is a deliciously unsettling novel about a perverse, isolated, and possibly murderous family and the struggle that ensues when a cousin arrives at their estate. 

Bisa dibeli di BookDepo Rp112.436.

[COVER REVEAL] Buns by Alice Clayton

The third in the hilarious yet sizzling hot Hudson Valley series from New York Time and USA TODAY bestselling author Alice Clayton.

Clara Morgan is living the dream, if you can call rebranding hotels that are desperate for a new life and running any kind of marathon a dream. Which she does. But the career she loves and the endurance races that keep her adrenaline pumping have kept her too busy to put down any roots. Growing up in foster care, she’s never been able to establish traditions of her own, which may be why she’s fascinated by the rituals that generations-old family resorts are known for. She’s especially interested in the Bryant Mountain House, and not just for their secret recipe for the yummy, gooey, can’t-get-enough-of Hot Cross Buns….

Archie Bryant, the man with the Buns, is fifth generation and one-day-owner of the charming yet run-down Bryant Mountain House in Bailey Falls, New York. He’s determined to save his family’s legacy from the wrecking ball the old-fashioned way—by gritting his teeth and doing what needs to be done. There’s no way Archie will be influenced by the new hotel branding expert his father brought in to turn one hundred and fifty years of tradition on its head just to attract a faster, younger, slicker crowd. But when some of Clara’s ideas start bringing in new, paying customers, Archie can’t deny that she may have just given him a shot at keeping his resort open.

It’s sticky, it’s messy, it’s sweet, it’s Buns.

It's been a while since I really post something promotional such as a cover reveal or event a book review, I wish I can do like I used to...
Anyway... here you go, the last book of Hudson Valley's series... which I love and made want to live there also... :3

[MASTER POST] Read and Review Challenge 2017

hahaha... I know I will always take up a challenge... because... because I love to plan, but to execute is another thing....

most of my previous years' challenges were failing miserably... last year I didn't take other challenge except on Goodreads, which by standard it came naturally along with the book registration... [and by honestly last year Goodreads' also a disaster >.< ] :D

and since BBI event generously host this year challenge: Read & Review Challenge 2017, I will bravely take the challenge... and how will the result?? I don't dare to estimate... just flow with the mood, Okay??!!

yeah, right!! :d

anyway... wish me good luck and wish me having a better great reading year!

Happy new year everybody! :3

Bulan Desember identik sama tukeran kado yaa... nah... anak2 BBI Jabo (dan sekitarnya di seluruh Indonesia) ngadain MARKITUKA (Mari Kita Tukar Kado) yang kedua...

Tadinya rada ragu2 mau ikutan atau gak... soalnya lagi gak ada buku yang bener2 dipengenin (*sumpe loh??*)... tapi ya buku gitu lhoh... Pasti ada lah yang dipengenin... :d

So, for my kind giver, here is the list, not in a particular order:

1. One Plus One: A Novel by Jojo Moyes - Kindle Edition Price $9.04
Tadinya perasaan liat di Peri+, tapi ternyata udah gak ada lagi...
Kenapa pengen buku ini... jawabannya sama seperti wishlist tahun lalu, sebabnya udah punya audiobook-nya yang gak didengerin karena gak bisa konsen klo cuma ngedengerin audibook aja... :D

2. The Girl in the Spider's Web by David Lagercrantz - Periplus Price Rp125,000
Dengan alasan nostalgia, pengen baca lagi cerita tentang Lisbeth Salander yang keren abis, walaupun bukan oleh pengarang aslinya...

3. Last Call by Alice Clayton - Periplus Price Rp140,000
Dimulai dengan Wallbanger yang penomenal untukku secara pribadi, karena salah satu bacaan yang memulai dan membuat aku makin menjadi2 sebagai ordo penimbun (abis kenal sama BBI jadi makin parah, hahaha... gak bilang kutu-buku klo timbunan lebih banyak daripada yang sudah selesai dibaca >.< )

4.  All the Bright Places by Jennifer Niven - Periplus Price Rp144,000
Pengennya karena hip aja sih... Kaya'nya bagus...

5. The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins - Periplus Price Rp126,000
Ini juga pengen karena buku ini hip banget... Penasaran aja, walaupun beberapa temen gak suka sama buku ini...
Covernya macem2, sebenernya gak harus yang ini juga sih... tapi yang ini yang paling keren karena movie tie-in...

6. Salt to the Sea / Between Shades of Gray by Ruta Sepetys - Periplus Price Rp142,000/Rp140,000
Dua2nya pengen karena dua2nya kaya'nya bagus... ;-) [Semoga belum dibeliin yang Salt to the Sea, karena lagi sale di Kindle jadi cepet2 langsung aku beli aja >.< ]

7. Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe by Benjamin Alire Saenz - Periplus Price Rp142,000
Ini salah satu wishlist yang udah lama banget, blum kesampean juga....

8. Flowers for Algernon by Daniel Keyes - Periplus Price Rp126,000
Favorite-nya salah satu temen, jadi pengen baca... :D
9. Raden Mandasia si Pencuri Daging Sapi by Yusi Avianto Pareanom - Price Rp60,000~Rp70,000
Hehe... pardon my imported books list, agak2 gimana gitu ya liatnya :d
Sebenernya sih bwat aku baca buku karya pengarang lokal itu gambling banget, sometimes I did like them, but other times they just made me mad... same goes to translated one XD
But I know, imported books are pricey... so if you don't wanna spend too much money on my behalf, this event is only for fun anyway ^^' - I gave you this one option, many people recommend it, though you might spend a little effort to hunt it down... yesterday I found it on market place such as Tokopedia or (I think) Bukalapak also have it, just google it.... but please don't give me a second hand or pirated one, choose the merchant wisely. Good luck yaa... :3
10. The Warth and The Dawn by Renée Ahdieh - Bukupedia Price Rp147,000 or Kindle Edition $6.36
Tambahan yang rada maksa karena keinginan yang terbawa suasana yang pada bilang klo buku ini bagus... Jadi ya sudahlah dimasukin aja... Kali aku berjodoh sama buku ini :D

Hmmm... kaya'nya cukup ya? List ini juga bisa dilihat di GR... sama aja sih... 
Dan seperti tahun lalu, nanti kasih tau yaa... kenapa kamu pilih buku "itu" untuk aku, pengen tau aja alasannya apa...

Okay, ditunggu kirimannya... :3

The Trouble with Mistletoe (Heartbreaker Bay #2) by Jill Shalvis

The Trouble with Mistletoe (Heartbreaker Bay #2)
by Jill Shalvis

ARC, Kindle Edition, 384 pages
Published September 27th 2016

If she has her way...

Willa Davis is wrangling puppies when Keane Winters stalks into her pet shop with frustration in his chocolate-brown eyes and a pink bedazzled cat carrier in his hand. He needs a kitty sitter, stat. But the last thing Willa needs is to rescue a guy who doesn’t even remember her...

He’ll get nothing but coal in his stocking.

Saddled with his great-aunt’s Feline from Hell, Keane is desperate to leave her in someone else’s capable hands. But in spite of the fact that he’s sure he’s never seen the drop-dead-gorgeous pet shop owner before, she seems to be mad at him...

Unless he tempers “naughty” with a special kind of nice...

Willa can’t deny that Keane’s changed since high school: he’s less arrogant, for one thing—but can she trust him not to break her heart again? It’s time to throw a coin in the fountain, make a Christmas wish—and let the mistletoe do its work...


First of all, Jill Shalvis is one my favorite author, I’ll always love whatever she wrote… so this is going to be very subjective… but never mind, her work will always good for me. This one is also…

Willa Davis is a pet shop owner who loves pets so much… Keane Winters is an old schoolmate who didn’t remember her…

Willa has always crush on Keane, back then or now… but will he break her again just like before?

Okay… I think the story is quite different with the other stories I’ve read by Jill Shalvis…

Willa seems unsure, Keane also almost don’t have confident with his own feeling or with his own wanting…
Though, one thing he’s sure of that he’s attracted to Willa, even though Willa at first not willing to risk her heart once more…

Willa is trying to fight her feeling, while Keane’s also fight his feeling of wanting more…

I’ve shared my first reason why I love this story right?
Second thing that I relate so much is the demanding cat… if you love cat, you’ll love this story too ;-)

It's 4 out of 5 stars from me :3
