[Review] Obsidian by Jennifer L. Armentrout

Title : Obsidian

Starting over sucks.

When we moved to West Virginia right before my senior year, I'd pretty much resigned myself to thick accents, dodgy internet access, and a whole lot of boring... until I spotted my hot neighbor, with his looming height and eerie green eyes. Things were looking up.

And then he opened his mouth.

Daemon is infuriating. Arrogant. Stab-worthy. We do not get along. At all. But when a stranger attacks me and Daemon literally freezes time with a wave of his hand, well, something... unexpected happens.

The hot alien living next door marks me.

You heard me. Alien. Turns out Daemon and his sister have a galaxy of enemies wanting to steal their abilities, and Daemon's touch has me lit up like the Vegas Strip. The only way I'm getting out of this alive is by sticking close to Daemon until my alien mojo fades.

If I don't kill him first, that is.

[Review] Mortal Danger by Ann Aguire

Title: Mortal Danger
Author: Ann Aguirre
Series: The Immortal Game #01
Publisher: Feiwel & Friends
Published: August 5, 2014
ISBN: 978-1-250-02464-0
Format: Ebook
Pages: 288

Revenge is a dish best served cold.

In Ann Aguirre's Mortal Danger, Edie Kramer has a score to settle with the beautiful people at Blackbriar Academy. Their cruelty drove her to the brink of despair, and four months ago, she couldn’t imagine being strong enough to face her senior year. But thanks to a Faustian compact with the enigmatic Kian, she has the power to make the bullies pay. She’s not supposed to think about Kian once the deal is done, but devastating pain burns behind his unearthly beauty, and he’s impossible to forget.

In one short summer, her entire life changes and she sweeps through Blackbriar, prepped to take the beautiful people down from the inside. A whisper here, a look there, and suddenly . . . bad things are happening. It’s a head rush, seeing her tormentors get what they deserve, but things that seem too good to be true usually are, and soon, the pranks and payback turns from delicious to deadly. Edie is alone in a world teeming with secrets and fiends lurking in the shadows. In this murky morass of devil’s bargains, she isn't sure who—or what—she can trust. Not even her own mind.

Outside the towering stone walls that surround the Glade is a limitless, ever-changing maze. It’s the only way out—and no one’s ever made it through alive.

Everything is going to change.

Then a girl arrives. The first girl ever. And the message she delivers is terrifying.

[Book Tag] Sosial Media Tag

Aku lagi keranjingan bikin Book Tag nih. Review diyah review, udah numpuk tuh yang belum direview. Hadeeh. Okelah abaikan saja pertentangan batinku. Langsung aja ya.

1. Twitter : Your favorite shortest book (@diyah8151)
Matemacinta by Razy Bintang Argian. 224 halaman. Teenlit yang masih unyu unyu ceritanya, tapi berhubung aku baca ini waktu aku SMP jadi aku suka-suka aja. Cinta banget malah. Aku bikin reviewnya notes facebook ku.

2. Facebook : A book everyone pressured you into reading. (Diyah Nur)
Engga ada. Temen-temen ku jarang yang suka baca, jadi ngga ada yang akan maksa aku buat baca buku apapun. Tapi kalau buku pelajaran, banyak.

3. Tumblr : A book you read before it was cool.
City Of Bones by Cassandra Clare. Tahu buku ini dari temen kerja ku yang dikasih tahu sama dosennya. Katanya genrenya dunia lain gitu, aku jadi tertarik. Sayangnya sampai sekarang aku belum sempet baca City Of Ashes.

[Book Tag] The TBR Tag

Book Tag ini di buat oleh A Perfection Called Books dan Dana Square, yang meskipun aku cari di blognya tetep aja ngga ada postingan book tag ini. Entahlah, aku nemunya bukan dari sumbernya sih tapi di effortlessly reading.

Oke, langsung aja ya.

1. How do you keep track of your TBR pile?
Kadang-kadang goodreads, tapi kebanyakan ngeliat sendiri buku-buku yang udah aku dapetin. Entah itu dari smartphone atau tumpukan buku di lemari.

2. Is your TBR mostly print or ebook?
Berhubung TBR ku kebanyakan buku luar jadi ebook. Kalau dibandingin aja jumlahnya kontras banget. Soalnya lebih gampang buat curi-curi baca di kantor *ups

3. How do you determine which book from your TBR to read next?
Liat-liat smartphone sama lemari pastinya. Aku ngga terlalu sering buka goodreads, lagian percuma juga, kalau yg mau aku baca belum ada kan kecewa, jadi liat aja yg udah kepegang. Terus pilih yang a. lagi booming atau b. covernya catchie atau c. yang paling baru aku tambahin (biasanya masih inget sinopsisnya gimana).
