I haven’t read many books this year but this is my favorite read so far in 2018 in no particular order.


Strange the Dreamer

28449207

I read this book in the beginning of 2018. I’m not a fans of purple prose book but this book hooked me from the start. Laini Taylor’s writing is so magical and the story is out of this world.

The Burning Maze

This is the third book of The Trials of Apollo and so far this is my favorite book in the series. This is also a surprising read for me because RICK DID SOMETHING THAT I CAN’T FORGIVE!!

This month is going to be Top 5 Wednesday Rewind Month! We have to pic some topics we missed or that happened before we joined the Top 5 Wednesday family! And I’ve deciced that I’m going to do the topic for February 2016 : Current Favorites that Aren’t Books

Mobile Legend

Mobile Legend is a MOBA (Multiplayer Online Battle Arena) 5v5 mobile game which I found very addicting. I’ve been playing for several months but it still hook me up everytime. I spent hours playing this game, maybe even more than reading! If any of you play this game too kindly drop your username and I’ll add you!

Salted Egg Fried Noodle

Indomie is one of the top brand of instant noodle from Indonesia. I’ve heard that this noodle is famous outside of Indonesia too, have you heard of this? If you haven’t tried it than you’re missing out. Please note that this is a really unhealthy obsession, but I can’t stop OMG this noodle is very addicting. Lately there are so many addition to this noodle and my favorite addition is salted egg, it’s sooo delicious!

Iced Coffee Milk

I’m not really a fans of coffee, I’m more of a tea or chai person. But iced coffee milk is another story! I crave it every day, again, this is unhealthy I know but I can’t help it! You should try adding fresh milk to your black coffee and add some palm sugar, it’s heaven!

American Housewife

You know I have a soft spot for a good drama/comedy/family TV series, and after the end of The Middle, this one is instantly become my next favorite! This series is created and written by Sarah Dunn and aired on ABC. This is about the daily lives of Katie Otto as she struggle to fit in to her new pretentious, wealthy neighborhood of Westport. She lives with her level headed husband Greg and their three children. I really love this show because it’s so close to reality and so relatable, and the family is so funny!

Alice

Do you guys read webtoon? I just discover this addicting webtoon recently, it’s so out of my favorite genre but I don’t know why I’m so addicted to this, GAH I’m so frustated! It involved cheesy romance, overly romantic dialog, love triangle, insta-love, and everything that I hate about romance! Then WHY OH WHY I’m so in love with this webtoon!line

Top 5 Wednesday: Characters You’d Want as Family


TOP 5 WEDNESDAY is a weekly meme created by Lainey  GingerReadsLainey on Youtube. You get a new topic every Wednesday, and list your top 5 according to the topic. You could join by clicking here.


This month is going to be Top 5 Wednesday Rewind Month! We have to pic some topics we missed or that happened before we joined the Top 5 Wednesday family! And I’ve deciced that I’m going to do the topic for September 2017 : Characters You’d Want as Family!

Father

As much as I want Arthur Weasley to be my fictional father, I would never had the nerve to separate him from his fictional family because The Weasleys are perfect for what they are!

So I choose my other favorite fictional father, Shalom Singer from The Selection series. He’s literally the best father figure I’ve ever read in any books. He always support her children and only want the best for them. He’s so understanding and he had infinite love that he won’t mind to show to his every child.

Mother

The award for world’s best mother goes to Beverly Goldberg from The Goldbergs TV series aired on ABC. This is also my favorite family/drama/comedy series, she’s not entirely fictional because her character is based on the creator’s  own mother. Beverly is a smotherer but God knows it’s just because she loves her children so much!

Older Brother

You probably know that I love the sibling relationship between Zelie and Tzain in Children of Blood and Bone. Tzain is a perfect brother figure, he works so hard to provide for his family, he always had her sister’s back no matter how much shits her sister put them through.

Younger Sister

Morrigan Crow from Nevermoor book! That girl got sass and humor which I really adore, she’s a little bit rascal and ignorant but her heart is in the right place. She would never hold grudge no matter how bad others treat her. She loves going on a “little” adventure and I bet it would make my fictional mother freak out.

Dog

I’m not a pet person, but I will never say no if Sam barking at my front yard and wants to live with me! Sam is the funny and super friendly dog from Granted, he’s a loyal friend and will do anything to help you and keep you company!

Who’s your top 5 fictional family? Do you agree with my choices here?

This month is going to be Top 5 Wednesday Rewind Month! We have to pic some topics we missed or that happened before we joined the Top 5 Wednesday family! And I’ve deciced that I’m going to do the topic for September 6th 2017 : Classes Based on Books/Characters because it’s super fun!!

Let’s discuss some classes you’d like to take either based on books or based on characters’ skills. I ENCOURAGE YOU TO NOT USE HARRY POTTER, because that is too easy. You are supposed to make up your own classes. For example, you could use How to Dismantle a Dystopian Regime for The Hunger Games or Archery 101 with Katniss

Top 5 Wednesday: Favorite Fandom Items

Hello booknerds!

How are you doing? How’s your reading progress? I’m not doing so good with my reading lately because my work shift is killing me! I only manage to read one book this week, and I have nothing to review so here’s another book meme!


TOP 5 WEDNESDAY is a weekly meme created by Lainey  GingerReadsLainey on Youtube. You get a new topic every Wednesday, and list your top 5 according to the topic. You could join by clicking here.


And this week’s topic is TOP 5 FAVORITE FANDOM ITEMS.

I really want to collect all of bookish fandom merch in the world but of course my severe addiction to books leave me no money to buy merchs. I try really hard not to get weak, and so far I’ve done marvelously to ignore all of that tempting and adorable merchs and made a promise to myself to buy Harry Potter related merchs only.

1. Harry Potter Funko Pop

I think funko pop is a very sensational figure, the chibi looks make it very adorable and make you want to collect them all. It may look tiny but the price is quite expensive, it’s become much more expensive when you live in this other side of the world (Hey, I’m in Indonesia), the shipping cost is crazy unbelievable!

711k0-uosWL._SL1200_

I managed to stick to my principle, so I collect Harry Potter pops only, I know I only have like… 5 right now but I really want to complete my collection 😂. This Harry Potter pop is my very first funko so it has some sentimental value, because I was struggling to get this.

 

2. Hogwarts Cauldron Mug

I’ve been eyeing this mug since forever but unfortunately it’s only sold in Primark, UK. It cost only 6 pound but how the hell could I get there? So I buried the wish deep and never think back again.

Aaaand to my surprise, this mug arrived at the front door of my house one day. Turns  out it’s from my best friend who just got back from UK for her honeymoon, I was so surprised that she even remember it when I didn’t. And the best part is she bought me two mugs, TWO! And the other mug is…..

 

3. Harry Potter Mug


N35397172150950-large
This is the other mug my friend bought me and I.AM.SO.IN.LOVE. It’s bigger than the cauldron mug but it looks really cute!

OMG, what did I do to deserve a bestie like that 😭😭😭😭

4. Hogwarts Satchel

R35397149792466-largeI really love the brown Hogwarts satchel ever since I lay my eyes on it, I’ve seen that satchel everywhere in my feed and I want it so badly. But I know I won’t have a chance because it’s also sold only in Primark and I don’t know how to get it without me flying to UK. But I still hope any of my friends would go there so I could just asked them to buy it for me 😂

 

5. Juniper Hogwarts Dust Jacket

This is the most impossible thing I ever wanted because I know I’ll never get my hands on this thing! The price is really expensive and the shipping cost is unreasonable!HPN7-neutral-harry-potter-front-1200-1line
