Wishful Wednesday [6]


Happy Wednesday! I miss this meme so much. Finally, I can post something about book what I want again in this time.

So, to the point: I want Rainbow Rowell’s books:

#1 Fangirl

And this is new edition:

Blurb:
A coming-of-age tale of fan fiction, family and first love.  

Cath is a Simon Snow fan.  

Okay, the whole world is a Simon Snow fan…
But for Cath, being a fan is her life—and she’s really good at it. She and her twin sister, Wren, ensconced themselves in the Simon Snow series when they were just kids; it’s what got them through their mother leaving.  

Reading. Rereading. Hanging out in Simon Snow forums, writing Simon Snow fan fiction, dressing up like the characters for every movie premiere.  

Cath’s sister has mostly grown away from fandom, but Cath can’t let go. She doesn’t want to.  

Now that they’re going to college, Wren has told Cath she doesn’t want to be roommates. Cath is on her own, completely outside of her comfort zone. She’s got a surly roommate with a charming, always-around boyfriend, a fiction-writing professor who thinks fan fiction is the end of the civilized world, a handsome classmate who only wants to talk about words… And she can’t stop worrying about her dad, who’s loving and fragile and has never really been alone.  

For Cath, the question is: Can she do this?

Can she make it without Wren holding her hand? Is she ready to start living her own life? Writing her own stories?  

And does she even want to move on if it means leaving Simon Snow behind?

#2 Landline

Blurb:
Georgie McCool knows her marriage is in trouble. That it’s been in trouble for a long time. She still loves her husband, Neal, and Neal still loves her, deeply — but that almost seems beside the point now.  

Maybe that was always beside the point.  

Two days before they’re supposed to visit Neal’s family in Omaha for Christmas, Georgie tells Neal that she can’t go. She’s a TV writer, and something’s come up on her show; she has to stay in Los Angeles. She knows that Neal will be upset with her — Neal is always a little upset with Georgie — but she doesn’t expect to him to pack up the kids and go home without her.  

When her husband and the kids leave for the airport, Georgie wonders if she’s finally done it. If she’s ruined everything.  

That night, Georgie discovers a way to communicate with Neal in the past. It’s not time travel, not exactly, but she feels like she’s been given an opportunity to fix her marriage before it starts . . .  

Is that what she’s supposed to do?  

Or would Georgie and Neal be better off if their marriage never happened

I want these books because her books is interesting :))

And, Hanum S Rais’s book: #3 Bulan Terbelah di Langit Amerika.

Blurb:
Amerika dan Islam. Sejak 11 September 2001, hubungan keduanya berubah.  

Semua orang berbondong-bondong membenturkan mereka. Mengakibatkan banyak korban berjatuhan; saling curiga, saling tuding, dan menyudutkan banyak pihak. more

Saya kepengin tahu perjalanan religius apalagi yang didapat penulis. Travel book memang punya daya tarik tersendiri bagi saya, sebab dengan membacanya saya jadi punya cermin penyemangat dari kehidupan perjalanan seseorang.
