Do you reread books?
There are a select few books I love to go back to (Harry Potter, Twilight etc). So I recently decided to start rereading some others. I have list in my bullet journal of all the books I want to get back into this year. These three are towards the top of my list!

A mystery with good suspense.🤤 As if I'm peeling back the layers of an onion. It keeps me guessing till the end, with different scientific fields and history involved. The terms and explanations are a bit rushed and complicated tho, so I can't understand them completely. Some technical info I just skimmed through It shows the thorough research the author has done I guess, which makes the story believable. The human relations in the characters’ workplaces are realistic and contribute to quite a part of the plot.
I like the main characters enough and know about them. The personality of the protagonist Malcolm can be shown by his narrative. Sad thing is I am not very emotionally invested. The style is too matter of fact and direct, like a statement because it's written as an article for the news. I love the surprising ending, telling us the purpose of the whole piece, which is to reveal the truth and warn us about selfishness.
Overall, The Enemy is a mix of Lee Child and Dan Brown, but not as good since it is relatively too short (only 288 pages) for such a sophisticated plot. It is enjoyable and teaches a great moral lesson. Not a light read tho.

Malcolm Jaggard is going to marry Penelope Ashton. But someone throws acid at her sister's face. And her father suddenly disappears.

How did you come up with your pets name?
Here’s my bunny and his namesake! I first met my little bunny a few days after he was born. As soon as I saw him I knew he had to be mine. The first time I held him was when I decided to name him Winnie. It just felt like the perfect fit for him!

Ya, akhirnya Bila kembali dengan book reviewnya! Kali ini, aku akan mereview salah satu buku yang sebenernya udah masuk wishlist sejak lama, tapi ya...gitu.
Judul: Oregades: Felix Felicis
Penerbit: Elex Media Komputindo (@elexmedia )
Ceritanya tentang apa sih?
Felix dan Felicis, si kembar dari Oregades, keluarga pembunuh bayaran, harus menghadapi kondisi dimana mereka melakukan hal yang cukup terlarang bagi mereka: jatuh cinta.
Udah sih, yang aku tangkep ya itu.
Plus and Minus
Yang aku suka:
Ide ceritanya! Romance tapi dengan action? Keluarga pembunuh bayaran? Sounds cool.
Tegangnya dapet! (Sayangnya kurang full sih...)
Tapi yang aku ga suka:
Plotnya terlalu bolong-bolong, setiap perpindahan adegan kaya lompat-lompat, dan itu bikin aku bingung.
(lagi-lagi) cinta ala kopi instan. Haduuu.
Beberapa tokoh yang (bakal) penting malah munculnya sedikit. Iya sih, biar kita ga kebayang dia siapa, tapi kan...tapi kan...
Ada lagi hal yang bikin aku bete, tapi ga aku ceritain soalnya ini spoiler berat.
Dengan berat hati aku cuma kasih...
Beneran deh, ceritanya seru, cuma ya itu. Plot hole.
