This book has been on my TBR list for weeks, and I just found out that it was adapted into an HBO series. I'd better start reading it now before binge-watching the series later. 😊

Reading a delicious book while drinking a nice cup of matcha latte. 📖☕
Life offers so many things that you can enjoy, and this is definitely one of them.

The Husband's Secret | Liane Moriarty
post image
Pickpick

Another book I read several months ago (I've been so busy lately and didn't have time to post anything on Litsy until now. ?)

Anyway, about the book, this is the second Liane Moriarty's book I've read after "Big Little Lies." I actually love both of them and really love the writing style of Liane Moriarty in general. This quote, for instance, will definitely be one of the book quotes I always remember.

I read the original version of this book several months ago. Now I'm re-reading the translated version in my first language, Indonesian.
"Where'd You Go, Bernadette" is translated as "Ke mana Kau Pergi, Bernadette?"

#SeptemberReadingList
A local bookstore recently held a big sale to celebrate the independence day of my country, Indonesia. I got all these books for a really low price. That makes me feel lucky and happy at the same time. 😄

Anne of Windy Poplars | L. M. Montgomery

Pickpick

Ah, it's always fun to read Anne Shirley's story. In Windy Poplars, she met so many interesting characters and experienced various intriguing events. Plus, we can have a peek of some wonderful letters that she sent to Gilbert. All in all, it's been a nice reading experience for me. 😊

I recently rearranged my bookshelf, and now I have two empty rooms to fill. 😅
Time to hunt more books, I guess... 😉

Same book, but in different media and different language (English and Indonesian).
Which version should I read first?

How to Disappear | Sharon Huss Roat

As someone who has overthinking habit, this is so relatable to me. Listening to other people's problems might be a burden when I'm still struggling with a load of mine.

A Lite Too Bright | Samuel Miller

Meaningful words wrapped in poetries are scattered throughout this book, and this one belongs to my favorite list.

The book itself tells the story about Arthur Louis Pullman III and his journey to seek the truth lying behind the life of his late grandfather. Halfway to the end, and I'm enjoying it so far.

Crazy Rich Asians | Kevin Kwan
post image
Pickpick

It's a reading rush! I have the urge to finish the book before hitting the nearest theater to watch the movie. And I should say I'm impressed with the way Kevin Kwan portrays the craziness of the rich Asian clans in this book. I am an Asian (but not rich, neither crazy) and live in the neighbor country of Singapore. Somehow, I can relate to the culture of those crazy rich families.

Goodbye Days | Jeff Zentner

"For the most part, you don‘t hold the people you love in your heart because they rescued you from drowning or pulled you from a burning house. Mostly you hold them in your heart because they save you, in a million quiet and perfect ways, from being alone."

"It occurs to me, then, that people themselves are full of tunnels: winding, dark spaces and caverns; impossible to know all the places inside of them. Impossible even to imagine."

One of Us Is Lying | Karen M. Mcmanus
Pickpick

Engaging premise, intriguing plot-twist. It's surely one of the best books I've read this year. A young-adult novel with a good mystery already catches my attention. And the fact that the story is told from four different point of views only makes me love this book even more.
