I’ve started to think of my favorite reads of 2017, and Neil Gaiman books are definitely up towards the top of the list. He is an author I read for the first time this year and I’m so glad I did. Neverwhere and Norse Mythology particularly are both incredibly well-written books that pulled me in instantly and made me wish there was more as I turned the last page. What author did you read for the first time this year and fall in love with?
"Paris, 14 March 1922. The collector relit his cigar, picked up the magnifying glass and studied the triangular 1874 Cape of Good Hope.
'I did warn you there were two,' said the dealer, 'so yours is not unique.'
'Ten thousand francs.'
The collector wrote out a cheque, before taking a puff on his cigar, but it was no longer alight. He picked up a match, struck it, and set light to the stamp. The dealer stared in disbelief as the stamp went up in smoke.
The collector smiled. 'You were wrong, my friend,' he said, 'mine is unique'. -- excerpt from #TellTale: short stories by #JeffreyArcher. #shortstories#novellafinebooks
Jadi, saya (seperti) sudah sampai pada konflik utama. Dan ... nggak bisa habis pikir sama si Tiara ini
Selepas gosip Anna dan Adrian, ada semakin banyak konflik yang terjadi di antara ketiganya. Parahnya lagi, hubungan Anna-Tiara dan Adrian-Tiara jadi awut-awutan.
"Gue bukan balas dendam. Kalian emang pantas buat dapetin ini semua setelah apa yang kalian lakuin ke gue. Baru itu namanya adil." (h. 259)
Pernahkah kamu punya masalah sama sahabatmu lalu hubunganmu memburuk?
Seperti Anna dan Tiara.

#BestNine2017 I'm sensing a pattern here..I've been super lazy with both my reading and instagram this year, only 20 books read...I haven't even finish The Dark Tower yet so one of my new years resolution is just to read more! here's to a better 2018!
Wow. This book. The symbolism is crazy. The writing style is beautiful. So many emotions. I'm so glad I chose this as my book of the month. "Sometimes the world don't give you what you need, no matter how hard you look. Sometimes it withholds." ~Jesmyn Ward
