Secret Santa 2014: Book and Riddle


Beberapa bulan terakhir, aku tenggelam dalam tugas, organisasi, dan pekerjaan. Dengan berat hati harus diakui, juggling itu nggak enak. Akibatnya, banyak review menumpuk dan belum dikerjakan. Apparently, I got to write these pending reviews in 2015. Eh, kok jadi curhat ya?

Wishlist Secret Santa BBI 2014



Setelah setahun menunggu, akhirnya event tahunan BBI yaitu Secret Santa diadakan lagi! Yaay!

Secret Santa adalah event dimana member BBI saling memberikan hadiah buku kepada member lain secara anonymous. Si pemberi, atau biasa disebut Santa, memberikan Riddle atau petunjuk mengenai identitas dirinya kepada si penerima (Target). Target kemudian harus menebak siapa si Santa baik hatinya.

Event ini cukup menyenangkan, karena pertama: aku dapat buku! Okay, two way street, karena aku juga memberikan buku kepada member lain. Tapi seneng rasanya bisa tuker-tukeran kado. Yang kedua, seru ngeliat banyak member yang mendadak alih profesi jadi detektif dadakan untuk membantu member lainnya memecahkan riddle mereka. Fun abis deh.

Ini kali ketiga aku ikutan Secret Santa. Di event SS 2012, aku dapat buku Matched (Ally Condie) dari Mbak Mezza Hafizah dan ngasih buku ke Mbak Dessy Roshinta. Sedangkan di event SS 2013, aku dapat Time of Death (J.D. Robb) dan Wild Invitation (Nalini Singh) dari Mbak Alluna Maharani, lalu ngasih buku ke Petronella Putri. Ditambah lagi, dari Mbak Alluna, aku dapat banyak merchandise Arsenal XD

Tahun ini, siapapun Santa aku, akan menerima wishlist yang isinya hanya empat buku. Karena ada aturan baru dari Divisi Event (50-50 antara buku impor dan buku lokal), aku minta dua buku impor dan dua buku lokalan aja deh. Kalau ada yang memperhatikan Wishlist aku sama Wishlist Sasti, pasti banyak yang samaan XD We have similar taste, that's for sure. Dan karena aku mau banget ngebantu Santa-ku, siapapun dia, sudah ada link Goodreads dan link dari toko bukunya :)

1. Burn for Me - Ilona Andrews (English) BookDepo | OpenTrolley
2. Night Shift (Anthology)* - Nalini Singh, Ilona Andrews, et al(English) BookDepo | OpenTrolley
3. Days of Blood and Starlight - Laini Taylor (Id)
4. Gone Girl - Gillian Flynn (Id) BukaBuku

*Just FYI, Night Shift baru akan diterbitkan 25 November 2014

Kalau aku boleh milih sih, aku kepengen Burn For Me :) Tapi kali aja Santa tidak punya akses ke BookDepo atau OpenTrolley, aku seneng banget terima dua buku terjemahan diatas. Here's hoping I'll get book number 1 and 2, karena jujur saja, aku lebih ngeh baca buku English dibandingkan buku Indonesia. *ini minta kok terang-terangan amat??*

Dan ada juga yang harus diperhatikan Santa: karena selama bulan Desember aku bakalan sering pulang ke rumah orang tua karena minggu tenang perisapan UAS, sebaiknya paketan SS dikirimkan ke alamat Sidoarjo. Takut kemahalan? Tenang, karena alamatku nempel sama area Surabaya, biasanya selisih kirim cuma 2000 kok :) Malah kayaknya sama aja deh kirim Surabaya sama kirim ke rumah Sidoarjo. Alamatnya ada di database BBI, jadi nggak perlu deh ya ditulis di sini.

Aku juga sudah terima siapa targetku, jadi sekarang aku sedang putar otak gimana bikin riddle buat si Target ini. And for now, I have an idea ;)

Happy Secret Santa! :D

Rock Courtship Blog Tour


Okay, I know officially the blog tour ends already. But due to unfortunate incidents, I have been unavailable for the past few days--and it sucked large! I can only read but not able to go online. Heh. Being a junior doesn't have certain perks like free times.

I'm reading Rock Courtship and now the progress bar currently stops at 80%. And up until now, I definitely LOVE the book. Thea being half-Balinese doesn't hurt either.


What happens when the Gentleman of Rock decides to play dirty?

A drummer for the hottest rock band on the planet, David has a single, powerful weakness: Thea, the band’s publicist and the woman who steals his breath away with her every move.

Only problem is, Thea doesn’t date clients—or musicians. Emotionally scarred by a cheating ex, she’s not about to risk her heart with a man who has groupies buzzing around him like flies. Even if his sexy smile ties her up in knots.

What she doesn’t know is that David is a one-woman man...and he’s madly in love with her. David’s determined to prove he’s worth the risk, and willing to court her, step by exquisite step. Thea’s about to discover just how long and hard this handsome drummer can play.

EXCERPT: ROCK COURTSHIP (ROCK KISS #1.5)

EXCERPT:   
“Beer—whatever you have on tap,” David said to the grizzled bartender and grabbed a stool, his eye on the rugby game in progress on the TV screen bolted above the bar.

He’d hardly taken a sip of his beer, the dark liquid bitingly cold, when he felt a presence at his back. Instincts honed by a childhood in one of the toughest areas of New York had him focusing on the mirror behind the bar to check out the situation before he turned. A big, bald, and heavily muscled male with a spiderweb tattoo on his neck was standing behind and just to the side of David, a smirk on his pockmarked face.

Belly heating, David turned with a slight smile. “Problem?”

The bald man bared his teeth and, laughing, looked to a table to his right. “Hear that, boys?” he called out to his friends. “The pussy rock star here wants to know if there’s a problem.”

Laughter and shouts from that particular table, while the rest of the men in the bar went quiet. David didn’t move, taking a measure of the players without letting it show. “Always know your opponent” had been one of the first things his father had taught him—Vicente Rivera didn’t believe in turning the other cheek; he believed in teaching his sons how to put bullies on the ground and keep them there.

“Yeah, there’s a problem,” the bald guy said, shoving at David’s shoulder. “This is a real bar for real men. Not pussies.”

Like that, then. Good. He was in the mood to do some violence. Lifting his beer, David took a long drink, then slammed it down… and punched Bald Head in the jaw at the same time that he kicked out with his foot to connect with the other man’s knee. The jackass went down like a ton of bricks.

Roaring in rage, the man’s friends came at David.

He grinned and started to show them what this “pussy rock star” could do.

It wasn’t until they’d broken a table and several chairs, and the bartender had called the cops that David realized Thea would have to deal with the fallout from this. Fuck, fuck, fuck, he thought as he was shoved into a cell alone, his erstwhile opponents in the cell opposite. Sliding down the graffiti-marked wall to the floor, he thought about the phone call the desk sergeant had said he could make and decided against it.

Fox had Molly with him—the band’s lead singer had been waiting for his girl to arrive since the instant Schoolboy Choir set foot in the city. As for Noah and Abe, they both had their own plans. He knew any one of the three men would drop those plans in an instant to come to his aid, but since the cops had made it clear he’d be spending the night in a cell no matter what, why mess up their plans?

“You do or say anything that’ll hit the media, you call me. Day or night. I hate surprises—so don’t you dare surprise me.”

Thea had given that order to all four of them when she’d agreed to act as their publicist. Her up-front nature and dedication to her job was part of the reason they’d hired her; Thea was the best and she didn’t take any shit from her clients. He wasn’t doing himself any favors by not calling her.

Right then, David couldn’t find it in himself to care. It wasn’t as if she could hurt him any more than she already had. And Jesus, how long was he going to carry this torch that was burning him alive? “Fuck, fuck, fuck,” he said aloud, banging the back of his head against the wall.

After that, he’ll be gone forever, his life never again intersecting with her own. Sex and sin and sensual indulgence, all with an expiration date. No ties, no regrets.

Festive in Death:   
Eve Dallas deals with a homicide—and the holiday season—in the latest from the #1 New York Times bestselling author.

Personal trainer Trey Ziegler was in peak physical condition. If you didn't count the kitchen knife in his well-toned chest.

Lieutenant Eve Dallas soon discovers a lineup of women who'd been loved and left by the narcissistic gym rat. While Dallas sorts through the list of Ziegler's enemies, she's also dealing with her Christmas shopping list—plus the guest list for her and her billionaire husband's upcoming holiday bash.

Feeling less than festive, Dallas tries to put aside her distaste for the victim and solve the mystery of his death. There are just a few investigating days left before Christmas, and as New Year's 2061 approaches, this homicide cop is resolved to stop a cold-blooded killer.

Love, she thought again, came in all colors, shapes, and sizes. She'd hit the jackpot with hers.
-Eve Dallas, Ch. 3

I love you beyond speech. Beyond reason.
-Roarke, Ch. 17

Roarke + Eve is back!
Dan kali ini, mereka merayakan Natal ketiga mereka sebagai pasangan suami istri. Dan terhitung, sudah 2.5 tahun mereka menika *kapan mau punya anaak? X)*

EXCERPT FROM ROCK ADDICTION
BY NALINI SINGH

Excerpt:   
FOX HADN’T BECOME THE LEAD singer of one of the best-selling rock bands in history by being a shrinking violet. No, he went after what he wanted, no holds barred. And the raw promise he could feel between him and Molly? He had to know where it would lead, the need so strong he hadn’t felt anything like it since the day he’d figured out that music was his escape, the air in his lungs.

Which was why he was leaning against the wall beside Molly’s apartment at five that afternoon, a guitar by his side.

The elevator doors opened at a quarter after the hour, Molly going motionless two steps outside of it, the doors closing silently at her back. Yeah, she hadn’t expected him, but Fox was ready to work with that. Waiting patiently as she took a deep breath and completed the trek down the corridor, he drew in the scent of her, his gaze lingering on the fluttering pulse in her neck.

“How did you get past security?”

Fox smiled slowly at the blurted-out question, wondering if Molly knew how bad she was at hiding her emotions. He liked it, liked that he saw the real Molly, not an illusion she’d created to tempt him—not that she had to do anything but smile to tempt him. “I told you the security sucks.”

Unable to resist, he reached out to run his finger down one creamy cheek flushed with a mix of surprise, passion, and, he was certain, sweet, hot feminine anger. His guess was borne out when Molly unlocked her door with jittery hands and put down her handbag on one corner of the bench, her fingers trembling before she curled them into her palms. “You’re breaking the rules.”
“What rules?” Closing the door, he leaned back on it and willed her to face him. Much as he loved the shape of her from the back, he liked watching those expressive eyes whisper her mood to him.

Shoulders tight, she turned. “This was supposed to be a one-night stand.”

“Ah.” Folding his arms over the plain black of his T-shirt, he said, “How about a one-month stand instead?” He knew he had to play this exactly right. Molly was wary of him, and yeah, he could understand why. To have her in his life beyond a fleeting instant, he’d have to win her trust.

She jerked up her head. “What?”

“Why not? I like you. You like me.” He smiled—because the reason Molly had needed to jerk up her head was that she’d been staring at his chest. “Admit it.”

Sitting down on the bench, she began to unzip her boots, very obviously not looking at him. “You’re okay for a rock star.”

He wanted to bite her, then pet her until she was limp and languid in his arms. “We burn up together.” Deliberately modulating his voice—his instrument—for maximum effect, low and bedroom rough, he saw her fingers stutter on the zipper. “I’m here for a month. It’s an easy equation.”

When the words “Let me think about it” fell from her mouth, he thought she might’ve been as startled as he was, her lips parting on a slight gasp—as if to call back the declaration.

Love Letter for Curran Lennart

Surat cinta ini kubuat atas request roomie-neighbor Sasti, yang lagi tergila-gila sama seri Kate Daniels. Dari kemarin-kemarin ya si Curran ini yang dibawa-bawa. Jadinya aku keinget sama crush yang sempat aku punya buat Curran, sampai tiba-tiba aku berhenti baca Magic Rises. Biasaa, kalau cowoknya udah jadian sama si cewek, hilang lah seleraku buat nerusin serinya. Tapi melihat potensi keseruan Magic Breaks, rasanya aku bakal baca Magic Rises dalam waktu dekat karena toh aku udah baca sampai Gunmetal Magic.

Curran sebagai book-boyfriend? Hmm, boleh lah. Asalkan dia nggak kebiasaan mengaum ke arahku aja X)

Dear Curran,
Sejujurnya, singa bukan hewan favoritku. Aku selalu jiper kalau ke Taman Safari dan ngelewatin singa-singa yang lagi bermalas-malasan #dasarkucing. Takut tiba-tiba kamu mendadak lapar dan lompat ke atas mobilku, lalu menganggapku sebagai pengganti makan siang. Atau malah makanan pembuka.

Anyway, karena kamulah, aku nggak sehoror itu lagi kalau ngeliat singa muncul di tivi. Untuk pertama kalinya, aku bersimpati padamu. Emang nggak ada hubungannya sama spesies singa pada umumnya sih, tapi sampai sekarang, otakku mengasosiasikan singa = Curran. Weird, huh? Mungkin karena otakku nggak bingung kayak kalau aku harus menghubungkan nama serigala. Too many wolves in my head, but there is only one lion.

Kenapa aku bersimpati kepadamu? Because Kate is probably one of the most confusing and most complicated heroines ever. Aku ngerti kenapa kadang kamu gondok dan pengen mengaum pada Kate, kalau pasanganku sebebal Kate aku juga sebel. Hubunganmu dengan Kate juga lama majunya karena Kate ngotot nggak mau nerima kamu #pukpuk. Tapi saat kalian berdua bersama, boom! Kate jadi lebih humoris dan tolerable, walaupun kamu tambah posesif #pffft

Kata Sasti, dia tertarik sama kamu tanpa alasan. Sampai speechless dia. Diam-diam mematikan gitu lah. Rasanya pantes sama deskripsimu. Yah, she knows better, wong Sasti calon dokter hewan -_____-" Kamu cowok yang intens, secara fisik kamu mengintimidasi, dan keposesifanmu pada Kate juga bikin aku kepengen punya cowok kayak kamu #diemdiemlapiler Kamu satu-satunya pacar shifter yang bisa mengintimidasiku dan bikin aku panas dingin sekaligus.

Dear Beast Lord,
Aku dan Sasti berharap kamu nggak terlalu bikin Kate frustrasi. Karena aku belum baca Magic Rises, aku nggak tau apa kamu berencana melamar dia atau gimana. Tapi pleaaaasee, jangan gantung dia. She deserves the best, you know? Mending kamu segera meminta dia menjadi Beast Lady resmimu. That'd be fun.

Semoga suatu saat nanti kita dipertemukan kembali di Magic Rises.

Love,

Nina
(on behalf of Sasti)

Rule:   
Opposites in every way . . . except the one that matters.

Shaw Landon loved Rule Archer from the moment she laid eyes on him. Rule is everything a straight--A pre-med student like Shaw shouldn't want--and the only person she's never tried to please. She isn't afraid of his scary piercings and tattoos or his wild attitude. Though she knows that Rule is wrong for her, her heart just won't listen.

To a rebel like Rule Archer, Shaw Landon is a stuck-up, perfect princess-and his dead twin brother's girl. She lives by other people's rules; he makes his own. He doesn't have time for a good girl like Shaw-even if she's the only one who can see the person he truly is.

But a short skirt, too many birthday cocktails, and spilled secrets lead to a night neither can forget. Now, Shaw and Rule have to figure out how a girl like her and a guy like him are supposed to be together without destroying their love . . . or each other.

The first Marked Men novel in Jay Crownover's combustible New Adult series.

Loving Rule had never been easy. It was always hard and painful and the payoff had been years coming, but I had never decided he wasn't worth it.
-Shaw Landon, Ch. 16

Life without you in it is doable, but if I have a choice, I want to do it with you by my side.
-Rule Archer, Ch. 17

Warning: Konten dewasa, hotness overloaded #idihbahasanya Tidak ditujukan untuk usia 17 tahun kebawah :D

Buku ini udah ngendon di laptop selama lebih dari 8 bulan, karena aku inget downloadnya sebelum UAS bulan Desember kemarin. Entah kenapa, dulu setelah baca satu chapter, aku kehilangan selera dan maju mundur mau bacanya. Dua minggu yang lalu, Ertika dari PNF 'nyuruh' aku baca buku ini. Dan voila!

Sundays at Tiffany's:   
As a little girl, Jane has no one. Her mother Vivienne Margaux, the powerful head of a major New York theater company has no time for her. But she does have one friend--Michael--and no one can see him but her. But Michael can't stay with Jane forever, and on her eighth birthday, her imaginary friend must leave her.

When Jane is in her thirties, working for her mother's company, she is just as alone as she was as a child. Her boyfriend hardly knows she's there and is more interested in what Vivienne can do for his career. Her mother practically treats her as a slave in the office, despite the great success of Jane's first play, "Thank Heaven." Then she finds Michael--handsome, and just the same as she remembers him, only now he's not imaginary. For once in her life, Jane is happy--and has someone who loves her back. But not even Michael knows the reason behind why they've really been reunited.

"I'm right here, Jane. That's my hand holding your hand. That's my fast-beating heart you can hear."
-Michael, Ch. 60
“Just because life is hard, and always ends in a bad way, doesn't mean that all stories have to, even if that's what they tell us in school and in the New York Times Review. In fact, it's a good thing that stories are as different as we are, one from another.”
-Jane Margaux, Ch. 82

Sundays at Tiffany's merupakan salah satu buku yang udah lamaaa banget masuk wishlist. Seorang peri baik hati akhirnya menyediakan buku ini buatku. So thank you :) Awalnya aku agak leery juga sih, karena ada beberapa review di Goodreads yang cuma ngasih satu bintang. Tapi nekat aja diserang bukunya, habis sayang juga kalau nggak dibaca.

Rusty Nailed:   
In this sequel to Wallbanger, fan favorites Caroline Reynolds and Simon Parker negotiate the rollercoaster of their new relationship while house-sitting in Sausalito.

Playing house was never so much fun, or so confusing. With her boss on an extended honeymoon, Caroline's working crazy-long hours to keep the interior design company running; especially since she's also the lead designer for the renovation of a gorgeous old hotel. And with Simon, her hotshot photographer boyfriend, gallivanting all over the world for his job, the couple is heavy-duty into "absence makes the heart grow fonder" mode. No complaints about the great reunion sex, though!

Then a trip back east to his childhood home has Simon questioning his nomadic lifestyle. He decides to be home more. A lot more. And he wants Caroline home more, too. Though their friends romantic lives provide plenty of welcome distraction, eventually Caroline and Simon have to sort out their relationship. Sure, more togetherness is a good thing, but does less traveling and working have to mean the other extreme? Apple pie and picket fences? With this second book in the Cocktail series, USA TODAY bestselling author Alice Clayton delivers another delicious, frothy confection of a book, shaking up her characters, stirring in laugh-out-loud humor, and serving sizzling romance straight up!

“His gaze grew wistful, and he looked so young. 'I don't want to put things off, even though we haven't been together a really long time. I don't want to wait--you never know what can...Look. I adore you, and I want a home. Again. With you.”
-Simon Parker, Ch. 16

Buku ini termasuk yang aku tunggu pertengahan tahun ini, karena aku jatuh cinta pada Wallbanger. Aku juga suka Simon dan Caroline. Meskipun mereka awalnya merupakan fanfiction Twilight. Dan aku bisa bilang kalau aku lebih suka deretan fanfiction Twilight daripada seri aslinya.

Cover Reveal: Nalini Singh's Rock Addiction

Hey guys! So how's your summer going? For a bookaholic like myself, summer break means reading in marathon mode and spending a whole day just lounging around reading anything and everything. So anyway, this post is supposed to go out at 9 AM EST (Eastern Time), but as I live in Indonesia and has like 13 hours of time difference, it's already night here in Surabaya.

I'm pretty sure many Nalini Singh's fans (including me!) have been looking forward for her newest book, ROCK ADDICTION. And for you who have heard about this book, you must have known that the book is contemporary and not a paranormal romance. But as Nalini is my auto-buy author, it doesn't matter. How I wish I could get an ARC for this book... but then I might have to be a bit patient and buy the book later.

I must admit I drooled a little. Ready? Here's the cover!

A bad boy wrapped in a sexy, muscled, grownup package might be worth a little risk…

Molly Webster has always followed the rules. After an ugly scandal tore apart her childhood and made her the focus of the media’s harsh spotlight, she vowed to live an ordinary life. No fame. No impropriety. No pain. Then she meets Zachary Fox, a tattooed bad boy rocker with a voice like whiskey and sin, and a touch that could become an addiction.


A one-night stand with the hottest rock star on the planet, that’s all it was meant to be…


Fox promises scorching heat and dangerous pleasure, coaxing Molly to extend their one-night stand into a one-month fling. After that, he’ll be gone forever, his life never again intersecting with her own. Sex and sin and sensual indulgence, all with an expiration date. No ties, no regrets. Too late, Molly realizes it isn’t only her body that’s become addicted to Fox, but her heart…


ROCK ADDICTION is set to be released on September 9th, 2014. Come on, peeps. Grab your calendar and mark the date! Currently, ROCK ADDICTION is available for pre-order in iBooks.

Murder of Crows:   
After winning the trust of the terra indigene residing in the Lakeside Courtyard, Meg Corbyn has had trouble figuring out what it means to live among them. As a human, Meg should be barely tolerated prey, but her abilities as a cassandra sangue make her something more.

The appearance of two addictive drugs has sparked violence between the humans and the Others, resulting in the murders of both species in nearby cities. So when Meg has a dream about blood and black feathers in the snow, Simon Wolfgard—Lakeside's shape-shifting leader—wonders whether their blood prophet dreamed of a past attack or of a future threat.

As the urge to speak prophecies strikes Meg more frequently, trouble finds its way inside the Courtyard. Now the Others and the handful of humans residing there must work together to stop the man bent on reclaiming their blood prophet—and stop the danger that threatens to destroy them all.

"--but I'd rather be able to hide behind you and watch a scary movie. When you're there, I don't see too much of the scary."
-Meg Corbyn, Ch. 31

Jadi meskipun agak terlambat, aku mau mengucapkan Selamat Idul Fitri 1435 H, Minal Aidin wal Faidin, Mohon Maaf Lahir dan Batin :)

The Edge of Never:   
Twenty-year-old Camryn Bennett had always been one to think out-of-the-box, who knew she wanted something more in life than following the same repetitive patterns and growing old with the same repetitive life story. And she thought that her life was going in the right direction until everything fell apart.

Determined not to dwell on the negative and push forward, Camryn is set to move in with her best friend and plans to start a new job. But after an unexpected night at the hottest club in downtown North Carolina, she makes the ultimate decision to leave the only life she’s ever known, far behind.

With a purse, a cell phone and a small bag with a few necessities, Camryn, with absolutely no direction or purpose boards a Greyhound bus alone and sets out to find herself. What she finds is a guy named Andrew Parrish, someone not so very different from her and who harbors his own dark secrets. But Camryn swore never to let down her walls again. And she vowed never to fall in love.

But with Andrew, Camryn finds herself doing a lot of things she never thought she’d do. He shows her what it’s really like to live out-of-the-box and to give in to her deepest, darkest desires. On their sporadic road-trip he becomes the center of her exciting and daring new life, pulling love and lust and emotion out of her in ways she never imagined possible. But will Andrew’s dark secret push them inseparably together, or tear them completely apart?

Due to sexual content and language, this book is recommended for 17+ – Adult Contemporary Women’s – New Adult Fiction

Brother's Keeper:   
Trapped in a web of hate with no escape, a young woman discovers her attraction to the man determined to protect her may be her undoing. Will time run out, or will he find a way to protect her before her abusive father kills her?

When Rowan is awarded a ballet scholarship to Michigan State University during her senior year of high school, her life’s dream is finally realized. Having lost her mother at an early age and being subjected to the abuse of a destitute drunken father, she has known unimaginable loss and heartache and been left wanting for a better life—a life now within her grasp. But with one ill-fated phone call, her life is turned upside down.

Logan is Rowan's best friend’s older brother whose career is taking off as he prepares to graduate law school and move cross-country to the prestigious law firm that has offered him a very lucrative contract. When Rowan finds herself at Logan’s mercy after he inadvertently learns of the abuse she has suffered at the hands of her father, their lives become intertwined in a way neither ever imagined nor wanted.

In an effort to protect her, but with his own hands tied by her unwillingness to report the abuse, Logan strikes a deal requiring Rowan to stay with him whenever there is a chance her father might be on a drunken binge—which is often. For her agreement and cooperation, he will keep her secret. Soon, their time together weighs on them both, and they find themselves constantly tempted to step outside the bounds of their supposed platonic relationship. But there is no point. The devastating fact of the matter is their lives are moving in opposite directions—a relationship destined to die before it even has a chance to live.

The ever present clock plagues them both as it ticks off the days until they are parted. But one all important question remains—after he leaves, how will he protect her from a father intent on hating her until the day he dies … or the day he kills her?

Mungkin nih ya, dari kovernya sendiri udah nggak terlalu encouraging. Aku sendiri juga nggak terlalu suka kovernya, terutama karena warnanya cuman cokelat. Tapi dibalik kovernya ini, Brother's Keeper punya cerita yang bagus loh.

Amazing Libraries Part 1: Seattle Public Library

 Aku terinspirasi untuk sharing mengenai perpustakaan-perpustakaan terkeren di dunia setelah nonton acara TV dan melihat perpustakaan ini. Yep, Seattle Public Library. Perpustakaan ini terletak di kota Seattle, WA, dan merupakan salah satu perpustakaan terpopuler di Amerika.

Apa sih kelebihan Seattle Public Library? Untuk website-nya, siapa tahu ada yang mau berkunjung ke Seattle, silakan klik disini. Seperti yang kalian lihat di website mereka, SPL menyediakan banyak program edukatif dan juga kegiatan-kegiatan besar. SPL juga punya hampir 2.5 juta koleksi buku. Perpustakaan ini diresmikan tahun 1890, dan juga punya 26 cabang perpustakaan, dimana perpustakaan utamanya (atau biasa disebut Central Library) terletak di Fifth Avenue Seattle.

Love Letter for Daemon Black

Kali ini, 'korban' surat cintaku adalah Daemon Black. Mau tahu siapa Daemon Black? Baca disini.

Kenapa Daemon Black? Untuk ukuran cowok genre YA, he's unbearably hot. Meskipun di dua buku pertama, well, he's unbearably rude. Pfft. Aku malu mengatakan kalau buku tiga dan empat belum kubaca, malah buku tiga masih mangkrak di rak, posisinya kegeser-geser mulu sama buku-buku lainnya. Tapi tetep aja nih, Daemon Black menempati posisi spesial book boyfriend. Surat ini ketemu di buku PPKN kelas 12 SMA *what?* Membuatmu bertanya-tanya, jangan-jangan di SMA kerjaannya Nina cuma ngilerin cowok ganteng di buku favoritnya? It's true, actually. Haha.

Udah liat kover-kovernya belum? Daemon (atau Pepe Toth) dan si model ceweknya udah tunangan loh :)

Dear Daemon,
Don't go Lux on me, okay? #sembunyidipojokan
Aku memang mengaku menyimpanmu sebagai book boyfriend, tapi aku nggak baca buku tiga dan empat. Pacar macam apa aku ini? Jadi jangan marah, apalagi jealous, karena aku udah memungut banyak cowok-cowok ganteng terlantar di belantara dunia perbukuan dan menjebloskan mereka ke dalam penjara harem pribadiku. You're still special :)

Kalau kata Katy Perry, boy you're so alien. Yah, emang kamu alien kan? Awalnya aku part charmed, part annoyed. Habis kamu nggak sopan banget sih sama aku dan Kat! Aku tahu kamu cuma berusaha melindungi keluargamu, tapi aku nggak bisa ngitung berapa kali aku kepengen nendang kamu. You're hot, protektif, sempurna, dsb. dsb. Kamu nggak perlu dengar aku mengoceh soal kelebihanmu, kepalamu udah cukup gede, entar helmnya ngga muat. Hehe #jayus


Aku pengen kamu tahu, kalau kamu adalah satu-satunya alien di dalam hatiku. Wait a sec. Aku nggak punya BB Alien selain kamu. Malaikat? Banyak. Shifter? Oh, segudang. Manusia biasa? Cukup lumayan. Alien? Hanya dirimu di hatiku. Aku pernah, dalam situasi gila, menuliskan namamu berkali-kali di lembar soal ujian karena bukannya mikir ini biologi mau diapain, aku malah memikirkanmu #halaaah


Aku kepengeeeen banget kamu muncul dalam mimpiku. Bukan apa-apa, aku cuma mau nyari alasan buka buku ketiga dan membacanya sampai tuntas. Apa aku tunggu aja sampai buku lima kelar yak? Bagaimana menurutmu? Karena itulah aku mau kamu memberiku petunjuk. Hatiku masih bergetar kalau keinget kamu, dan sejujurnya aku juga menyukai BB seibumu #lirikChandlerdanCameron Jadi aku berharap kamu segera memberiku sedikit saja mood untuk nyelesaiin kisahmu dan Kat.


Dear Daemon, buatku kamu alien paling tampan dalam sejarah. Semoga kedepannya sifat aroganmu (however well deserved it is) lebih bearable, cintamu pada Kat semakin heboh (aku nggak jealous kok sama Kat, serius!), dan masalahmu dengan keluargamu cepet tuntas. Tapi jangan balik ke planetmu yah, hiks hiks. Kalau kasusnya begitu, aku nangis aja lagi di pelukan Raphael #lho


Love,


Nina


Mungkin kalau Daemon beneran ada dan nyata, dia bakalan mendengus melihat suratku dan membakarnya, lalu balik ke Kat dan menertawakan aku. Aku bisa membayangkannya...

Written in Red:   
No one creates realms like "New York Times "bestselling author Anne Bishop. Now in a thrilling new fantasy series, enter a world inhabited by the Others, unearthly entities--vampires and shape-shifters among them--who rule the Earth and whose prey are humans.

As a "cassandra sangue," or blood prophet, Meg Corbyn can see the future when her skin is cut--a gift that feels more like a curse. Meg's Controller keeps her enslaved so he can have full access to her visions. But when she escapes, the only safe place Meg can hide is at the Lakeside Courtyard--a business district operated by the Others.

Shape-shifter Simon Wolfgard is reluctant to hire the stranger who inquires about the Human Liaison job. First, he senses she's keeping a secret, and second, she doesn't smell like human prey. Yet a stronger instinct propels him to give Meg the job. And when he learns the truth about Meg and that she's wanted by the government, he'll have to decide if she's worth the fight between humans and the Others that will surely follow.

“It was easier when all we wanted to do was eat them and take their stuff,” he grumbled.
And it had been easier when he hadn’t cared if he made any of them cry.”
-Simon Wolfgard, Ch. 4

Aku keinget download buku ini di akhir tahun 2013. Waktu itu aku nggak sengaja download ketika jalan-jalan nyari ebook. Karena satu hal dan lainnya, aku baru sempat baca kemarin. Apa yang membuat aku tertarik dulu adalah deskripsinya. Yep. Aku diiming-imingi sekelompok ras yang bernama 'The Others', makhluk-makhluk supernatural yang hidup dan berjalan di sekeliling kita.

Shield of Winter:   
Assassin. Soldier. Arrow. That is who Vasic is, who he will always be. His soul drenched in blood, his conscience heavy with the weight of all he’s done, he exists in the shadows, far from the hope his people can almost touch—if only they do not first drown in the murderous insanity of a lethal contagion. To stop the wave of death, Vasic must complete the simplest and most difficult mission of his life.

For if the Psy race is to survive, the empaths must wake…

Having rebuilt her life after medical “treatment” that violated her mind and sought to stifle her abilities, Ivy should have run from the black-clad Arrow with eyes of winter frost. But Ivy Jane has never done what she should. Now, she'll fight for her people, and for this Arrow who stands as her living shield, yet believes he is beyond redemption. But as the world turns to screaming crimson, even Ivy’s fierce will may not be enough to save Vasic from the cold darkness…

He'd watched her as if she was the only thing in the entire universe, as if she was his version of a Turkish Delight. s if he wanted to devour her whole.
-Ivy Jane, Chapter 11

The man I was, the man I am, the man I will be, the man I want to be, they all belong to you. Always.
-Vasic Zen, Chapter 55

Aku excited banget ketika memulai Shield of Winter. Waktu itu emang belum ada indikasi kalau buku keempat belas bakalan mengusung Aden Kai sebagai tokoh utama. Aku masih sibuk ngiler ketika tahu Vasic, si Arrow dengan kemampuan teleportasi (Psy Tk-V), akhirnya akan ditaklukan seorang wanita.
