Books I'm Yet To Read


Guys, I'm in the mood of reading *clap clap. I actually have tonnes of books I'm yet to read back in my hometown but currently, I just have these five books here in Kulim.

I did mention HERE in my older post, that I wish to learn Chinese and finally I bought 'Bahasa Mandarin untuk Pemula' for a stepping stone. But reading the book, I do have a problem; HOW TF SHOULD I PRONOUNCE THESE WORDS?! For example; wo xiang xuexi hanyu. Terbelit lidah k. By the way, it means 'I want to learn Mandarin'.

The Kill Order & The Fever Code - James Dashner
The Maze Runner is my favourite series. I have bought all the books in the series a long time ago and I've read the trilogy, but I'm yet to finish these two. They're the prequel to the trilogy, that's why I'm procrastinating in reading them because there's no Newt nor Minho (as far as I've read them lah). I'm currently reading 'The Kill Order', hoping to quickly finish it and start reading 'The Fever Code' as soon as possible.

I just bought these two books about a few days back.

aA+bB - Hlovate
I don't know if it's just me but I think most of us so called writers, dream to publish a book. I bought 'aA+bB' by Hlovate because I'm planning to write a Malay novel manuscript. I've read a lot of good Malay novels especially from Aisya Sofea and Ahadiat Akashah but I never read Hlovate yet. It's been ages since I last read Malay novel so I thought to read Hlovate's for my manuscript reference since Hlovate is so popular among Malay novel lovers. I'm currently reading it but unfortunately, it is not up to my liking because the sentences are too simple and it made the cliche storyline uninterested. I would prefer the ayat-berbunga-jiwang-karat type of writing. But I would continue reading it nonetheless and maybe would buy Aisya Sofea's soon.

The Book of Tomorrow - Cecelia Ahern
Romance lovers wouldn't dare to deny Cecelia Ahern's books. Of course, 'Love, Rosie' was what made me fell in love with her writing. I was contemplating between 'The Book of Tomorrow' and 'The Time of My Life', I was thinking to buy both but since I have tonnes of books waiting to be read, I decided to buy just one and it is 'The Book of Tomorrow'. The synopsis was what attracted me to buy this book and hey, isn't the cover is the cutest?

Tamara Goodwin hs had everything given to her. She has never wasted a thought on tomorrow. But when tragedy turns her world upside down, she has to leave her comfortable life behind, abandoning an affluent existence for the charity of relatives deep in the countryside.
When travelling library arrives in the village, it offers an escape into the pages of the books on its shelves. One of them, a heavy leather-bound volume locked with a padlock, draws Tamara to it. And what she discovers within its pages starts to change her life in the most unexpected of ways...

Fun fact; I love collecting books, especially novels but I'm too lazy to read them. So here's a challenge from me, to myself; I should finish reading all five books before ending May because I was thinking to buy a new one next month teehee.

Do you have books you're yet to read?

Till then,
Lya

  1. Yeayy! Mood membaca Lya dah datang :D

    Nak tanya, kena baca The Kill Order then baru baca The Fever Code eh for Maze Runner series? Siqah baru je download ebook series ni. Tapi mestilah tak baca lagi. Lambat rasanya 😅

    Mana Lya beli novel Hlovate? Siqah pernah baca satu je novel dia (pinjam kawan) tak ingat tajuk, tapi best! Siqah suka penulisan Hlovate. Tapi susah nak jumpa buku dia :( Aisya Sofea pun best jugak :)

    Siqah tak ingat dah baca ke The Book of Tomorrow? Haha. But yes I love Love, Rosie so much and of course, PS I Love You. Latest novel from Cecelia tajuk Flawed dah baca? Series jugak tu. Best! 😍

    Your fun fact, same like me!! Hihi. Pastu blur tak tahu nak baca buku mana satu dulu. Happy reading, Lya 😍

    1. The Kill Order dulu, baru The Fever Code. Fever Code actually baru je release februari 2016 :)

      Novel Hlovate memang susah gila nak jumpa, I just found it dekat bookstore near my house. Entah lah kan, tapi Lya kurang gemar ayat simple sangat for a novel hee. Lain orang lain citarasa. But can't deny, Hlovate memang popular.

      Nak beli Flawed tapi belum jumpa bukunya!

      Sep sikit part fun fact tu hehe. Memang jenis suka perabis duit untuk buku tapi berkurun lama baru nak baca.

  3. I love Hlovate's work, probably because the content ._. I used to love reading malay novel with berbunga punya ayat tapi lepas start baca HLOVATE's I just stop I guess? Hiks. Dan rasanya, Jemari Seni kebanyakannya memang struktur ayat stail sama - closed to our daily conversation, mudah faham. Alaf 21 berbunga ._.

    Have you ever tried english berbunga or metaphorically explained type of book? hahahahaha try If I Fix You by Abigail Johnson :D

    1. This Hlovate is my first Malay novel yang tak berbunga ayatnya I try to read. Maybe sebab masih di peringkat awal, so I just can't accept it I guess? Lol. Will read it to the end, hoping I'll gradually fall in love in Hlovate :)

      Thanks for the suggestion! I never read english yang berbunga lagi, definitely will try to read it.

  7. I just read Flawed from Ahern and it was superb. I want to try the other too but im afraid its gonna have so much lovey dovey & tears thingy. Haha.

    I've read only one Hlovate novel entitled Contengan Jalanan. It was more to jalan mencari tuhan and one of the best contemporary books I ever read.

    Im not yeat start reading kill order and the fever code tho i only have bought the kill order first. Haha. I hate to be left without answers. Lols.

    Btw, happy reading lya! 😀

    1. Sounds intriguing enough to me. I'll definitely find and read Flawed then!

      Might as well try to read Contengan Jalanan then if you said it's good. I believe in youu.

      I hate it too haha and that answered why I've been procrastinating in finishing the two books.

      Thanks Eyqa :)
