Discussion : Reading Slum

Saturday, May 30, 2015

Okay, if you have been following my blog, you probably realize that I rarely done book disscussion before. But I decided to write one because I think this is something that many readers have suffered including me, I suppose.

For you who don't know what reading slum is, well, I don't really understand about the term either actually. I've just heard about it few moments ago. But I came to the conclusion that reading slum basically a moment where you just getting lazy to read and feeling devastated because well, reading is your life.

Honestly, I never realize that I have been suffering reading slum until I watched about it on YouTube. *I give credit to Sasha Alsberg's Abooktopia*I think every readers has their own  So, I guess this is how my reading slum began.

Summary :
“Apakah kau masih membenciku?”
“Aku heran kau merasa perlu bertanya.”

Lucas Ford pertama kali bertemu dengan Sophie Wilson di bulan Desember pada tahun terakhir SMA-nya. Gadis itu membencinya. Lucas kembali bertemu dengan Sophie di bulan Desember sepuluh tahun kemudian di kota New York. Gadis itu masih membencinya. Masalah utamanya bukan itu—oh, bukan!—melainkan kenyataan bahwa gadis yang membencinya itu kini ditetapkan sebagai tunangan Lucas oleh kakeknya yang suka ikut campur.

Lucas mendekati Sophie bukan karena perintah kakeknya. Ia mendekati Sophie karena ingin mengubah pendapat Sophie tentang dirinya. Juga karena ia ingin Sophie menyukainya sebesar ia menyukai gadis itu. Dan, kadang-kadang—ini sangat jarang terjadi, tentu saja—kakeknya bisa mengambil keputusan yang sangat tepat.


Setelah begitu lamanya menunggu, akhirnya saya dapat membaca karya Ilana Tan. Honestly, she’s like one of the best author in the country! Saya sudah membaca seluruh karyanya, dan karya terakhirnya ini sungguh-sungguh tidak mengecewakan. I’m sure I’m not the only on who say this because all of my friend does!

Okay, let’s begin!

The Heir (The Selection #4) by Kiera Cass

Princess Eadlyn has grown up hearing endless stories about how her mother and father met. Twenty years ago, America Singer entered the Selection and won the heart of Prince Maxon—and they lived happily ever after. Eadlyn has always found their fairy-tale story romantic, but she has no interest in trying to repeat it. If it were up to her, she'd put off marriage for as long as possible.

But a princess's life is never entirely her own, and Eadlyn can't escape her very own Selection—no matter how fervently she protests.

Eadlyn doesn't expect her story to end in romance. But as the competition begins, one entry may just capture Eadlyn's heart, showing her all the possibilities that lie in front of her . . . and proving that finding her own happily ever after isn't as impossible as she's always thought.


What will happen after the great happy ending? It will be a new story to be told I guess. Anyway,it’s a little bit hard for me to get my hands on this book and I have to wait a year for it. But it’s worth the wait.
