Minggu ini gue baca buku Hollywood Wives by Jackie Collins.

112725

First sentences-nya:

He stood in the living room of the small house in Philadelphia. He stood and stared at the three of them. Three pigs. Three laughing faces. Teeth and eyes and hair. Three pigs.

Thoughts:

Jackie Collins’ books are my kind of reading. Hollywood banget lengkap dengan skandal, intrik, dan segala kebusukan internal Hollywood.

The character is full of rage and hatred. Dan biasanya kebencian tersebut mengarah pada pembunuhan, khas Jackie Collins.

I’m juggling between this book and So I Married The Anti Fan.

Happy Friday!

I’m currently reading So I Married The Anti Fan and Radiance.
But I’m gonna pick Radiance for today’s post.

Radiance

Gue beli di Periplus bagian bargain books, dan dapat harga super murah. Kebetulan sebelumnya dapat juga buku Shimmer, Riley Bloom Series buku kedua. Dan Radiance adalah buku pertama dari seri tersebut. Gue belum beres baca buku ini (hampir selesai sih), tapi so far so good. Gue suka buku ini walau buku untuk adalah bacaan middle-schoolers.

The first sentence of the book:

Most people think that death is the end.

First impression: tentu ini buku tentang kematian/afterlife. Dalam Immortal Series-nya Alyson Noel, Riley diceritakan tewas karena kecelakaan bersama kedua orang tua dan anjingnya, Buttercup. Sementara kakaknya, Ever, hidup sebatang kara.

Back to Radiance, Riley yang mati muda (usia 12 tahun) diberi tugas oleh the Council di akhirat untuk kembali ke dunia bersama Buttercup dan Bodhi, a dork, untuk mengantar roh penasaran kembali ke jembatan menuju Here.

Banyak adegan lucu juga di buku ini yang bikin gue ngakak membayangkan peristiwa ghost busting benar-benar terjadi, juga saat Riley yang terlelap kaget waktu sadar ia digencet dua orang dewasa yang tidur di ranjang.

Apakah gue akan lanjut baca seri ini? Definitely. Gue juga lagi hunting Immortal Series.

Share juga buku yang lagi kamu baca ya.

Happy Friday,
