the start of this year couldn’t have been worse..with the heavy rain and everything. It’s getting worse by the day and the peak was today. Jakarta is now flooded. Most of the main areas are inaccessible. I am lucky that I just moved and my housing complex is up above. The road outside is dry but outside my complex..it’s water everywhere. This is devastating. I thought the flood 5-6 years ago was bad enough. This one is definitely worse. The only downside of living here is that we have no electricity because of the flood surrounding us. I’m praying for the safety of all the people in Jakarta who were victimized by this tragedy and hope with all my heart that the flood will subside soon. I am supposed to go to Singapore on Sunday for my check up but it might get delayed because of this >_<
Finally the new year begins and I’ve started my 2nd books challenge..
This year I challenged myself to read 70 books again..hope I can read more than my target. The 1st book I finished this year is
#1 The Diviners by Libba Bray
This book is historical series. The story evolved around people who have supernatural powers in the 1962. What I love is how Libba Bray made me feel like I’m really there experiencing the 1962 Manhattan. There are several important characters in this book but the main character is Evie. She is a diviner (someone who has gift of sights) and her adventure in helping her uncle solve a gruesome murder that has been happening. In doing so, she discovered that it’s a lot bigger than she expected. There’s a lot yet to be revealed in this book and I won’t elaborate more. There are still too much secret kept. I really can’t wait to read the 2nd installment of the series. I give this book 4.5 stars. It’s a thrilling and enticing book that would leave you staring at the pages of the books once you started reading it.
yay I finally finished my books challenge for this year. At first I started with 50 but turns out I finished 50 books like 2 months ago or so hehehe so I upped my quota to 70 books and Finally finished reading few days ago. This challenge is really motivating if you find yourself loving books but couldn’t seem to start and focus on one book until finished. It happened to me last year. I really love books and this year I really enjoy traveling into a lot of different worlds.
Can’t wait to star the new challenge next year but actually I already started reading a new book called The Diviners by Libba Bray. It’s pretty thick and I thot if I start now then I’ll finished it by next year. But turns out the story is far more interesting than I thought. I find myself sinking into the story. It’ll be the first book I finished reading next year then hehehe..
Just purchased these 6 ebooks..can’t wait to read it all
