#BookReview Luka Dalam Bara by Bernard Batubara

Halo, semua! Kembali lagi di Tiara’s #BookReview. Tulisan kali ini bukan hanya tentang ulasan salah satu buku yang beberapa minggu lalu aku baca, tapi aku juga mau sedikit share tentang sebuah aplikasi yang sangat membantuku untuk baca novel-novel berbahasa Indonesia, yaitu iJakarta! Belakangan aku cukup sering pinjam buku dari perpustakaan digital ini. Gratis dan praktis (aye, you should use this…

#BookReview The Girl on Paper by Guillaume Musso

Welcome to another book review! Today I’ll write a review about a book I’ve randomly picked because of its visually pleasing cover. Because I read the translated version, I’ll write this review in Bahasa Indonesia, ya! BLURB Gadis itu terjatuh dari dalam buku. Hanya beberapa bulan yang lalu, Tom Boyd adalah seorang penulis miliarder yang…

#BookReview Flowers for Algernon [A Novelette] by Daniel Keyes

One year ago when I was still an avid reader of YA/romance fictions, a friend of mine recommended a book titled Flowers for Algernon. When I read the title, I was excited because I thought it was a book about love story or something like that. So I typed ‘Flowers for Algernon’ on Google search tab; turned…

#BookReview Critical Eleven by Ika Natassa

Berbeda dengan Tere Liye yang beberapa karyanya telah tuntas ku baca, pengetahuanku tentang karya Ika Natassa awalnya masih sangat minim. Aku baru tahu karya beliau…

#BookReview Norwegian Wood by Haruki Murakami

Hello! I finally made it to the ending on a windy November 12 evening. [You’re right. Another long overdue post] I phoned Midori. “I have to talk to you,” I said. “I have a million things to talk to you about. A million things we have to talk about. All I want in this world is…

H o l i d a y [Bonus: Short Reviews of 12 Young Adult Books!]

Semester break is about to end in a month, and I-unsurprisingly-haven’t done nothing much. Cliché. “Sleep is for the weak!” they proclaimed. If that expression is true, then I am that one strong kid on holiday who turns out to be the weak when she has plenty academic shits to do. Shame on me, I just sacrificed tonight’s sleep…
