Pernah membayangkan jika suatu hari kamu bertemu dengan tokoh fiksi dalam novel? Tokoh fiksi yang awalnya hanya imajinasimu saja tiba-tiba hadir di dunia nyata dan ingin pertanggungjawabanmu mengembalikannya ke dunia novel?
Inilah sekelumit kisah Tom Boys, seorang penulis novel best seller. Suatu hari ada sosok wanita yang mengaku sebagai Billy Donelly, tokoh fiksi dari novel yang dia tulis.
Idenya menarik sekali. Sejak membuka halaman awal aku sudah dibuat tertarik dan penasaran, hingga tak membutuhkan waktu lama untuk membacanya.
Di halaman-halaman awal mungkin kamu akan menemukan sesuatu yang berbeda. Alih-alih langsung masuk ke cerita, penulis malah membagikan potongan demi potongan berita di media tentang Tom dan kekasihnya, Aurora. Hal ini tentu mengundang rasa ingin tahu pembaca, dan itu berhasil untukku.
Semakin lama membaca, aku semakin larut dengan kisah Tom dan Billy. Billy benar-benar memainkan perannya dengan sangat baik, karakternya begitu hidup dan membuatku terus membaca hingga akhir.
Sejak awal aku memang tidak punya ekspektasi apapun, apalagi ini pertama kalinya aku membaca karya dari penulis Perancis. Aku benar-benar penasaran akan kisahnya dan menjelang ending aku benar-benar dibuat kaget dengan kenyataan yang ada. Penulis sukses membuat twist yang mengejutkanku
Sebenarnya aku sudah menyelesaikan novel ini sebelumnya. Tapi karena novel ini merupakan salah satu novel favoritku, aku pun akhirnya membaca ulang novel ini untuk kedua kalinya.
Sensasi membaca novel ini masih sama, aku tetap menikmati kisah Parker Frost, seorang remaja yang seumur hidupnya tidak pernah mengambil risiko. Selama ini Parker yang terbiasa hidup di zona nyamannya dan menjadi remaja baik-baik, seakan-akan semua sudah terencana. Parker tidak suka kejutan atau hal-hal tak terduga lainnya.
Hingga kemudian saat dia menemukan jurnal Julianna Farnetti, hidupnya berubah. Parker semakin dalam memasuki kisah hidup Julianna dan berusaha memecahkan kisah kematian Julianna dan Shane, pasangan legendaris asal kotanya.

I've been MIA for a while bc the Grim Reapers had run rampant taking lives of my family members day in and day out.
It only occurred to me that today is the release day of #MomentsofPain until I received this notification and a follow up email from my street team that they can't wait for Book 3.
Yeah, today is #MomentsofPain release day. It sure is.
In honor of national brothers day!! Book brothers Jace & Alec! Any other book brothers that come to mind?
I've been wanting to read Kevin Wilson's stories since my professor @sbgriffiths mentioned the one about the Scrabble factory. (We read his novel The Family Fang for a group project. Not going to lie, that was an epic presentation. Highly recommend that novel.)
As with any short story collection there were ones I really liked and others that I did not. My favorite is the first one, "Grand Stand-In" about a woman whose job it is to pretend to be a grandparent in her clients' families. "Blowing Up on the Spot" is the fabulous one with a man who works at the Scrabble factory. But "Mortal Kombat" left me angry and sad. (Which was possibly the intention.) But it is about two friends learning about their sexuality. It is very physical. *Explicit content* Then the one friend gets really uncomfortable and punches the other. This scenario plays out repeatedly.
I recommend this collection for those who like Aimee Bender's, Karen Russell's, and George Saunders' collections. #books#bibliophile#bookworm#booknerd#bookstagram#bookaddict#booknerdigans#bookaddiction#bookreview#bookdragon#bookrec#librarylove
Someone please send me the motivation to reorganize and clean my bookshelves
" 'Oh, you just look at something and figure out how it works,' Kai deadpanned, standing beside her. 'Is that all?' Cinder fixed her ponytail and shrugged, suddenly embarrassed. 'It's just mechanics.'
Kai scooped an arm around her waist and pulled her against him. 'No, it's impressive,' he said, using the pad of his thumb to brush something off Cinder's cheek. 'Not to mention, weirdly attractive,' he said, before capturing her lips. "
OH MY STARS. Soo I finished Winter today & I am so sad that I am done with this series but I loved it so much. Scarlet and Wolf were definitely my favorite but there wasn't a ship in this series that I didn't adore. Definitely going to pick up Stars Above sometime soon but I am completely content with how this ended & so very happy.
Also, gets who is almost done with Clockwork Princess? Only have about 100 pages left & I am not ready to say goodbye but I'm thinking I'll finish it tomorrow. ♡
“You may tell a tale that takes up residence in someone's soul, becomes their blood and self and purpose. That tale will move them and drive them and who knows that they might do because of it, because of your words. That is your role, your gift.” -Erin Morgenstern, The Night Circus⠀
In my opinion, all of the best books are written during NaNoWriMo. Fangirl, Water For Elephants, Anna and the French Kiss, and this book, The Night Circus. In my opinion, while I liked Caraval, The Night Circus is the best of the magic/circus-related books I've read. What is your guys favorite fantasy novel?
This is one of those books which I know I've read before but I'm not sure if I did, so I decided to read it again and I loved it (again).
Review for this will be up in a minute.
What are you guys currently reading?
Do you guys ever feel really inspired to take photos whenever you're not at home or don't have time to, but then when you do have time you don't have any inspiration? I've been struggling with this recently .

A "getting to know me" post. This is my doodle book. Its my artsy audiobook activity because I'm super ADD and my hands need something to do. Its sort of like art journal... A really subconscious journal. A Freudian art journal...?
PS. Those are real books standing in for audiobooks since me phone was busy charging.
