#MalaysiaMembaca

Well, who does reading anyway nowadays? Jesteru sebagai seorang rakyat Malaysia yang membudayakan pembacaan di masa-masa terluang maka saya sambut tagar ini dengan rasa kegembiraan yang melambung tinggi. I dont know how will others do their list, but for me, if the story is gripping so much or whether someone asking for recommendations, these were the books that often comes into my mind. Or just simply the book that I’ll get through over and over again while on my reading…

I believe that I have speak my point and if you enjoying this video or curious about the book or just simply think there are way of improvement please do not hesitate comment below. Im open to any suggestion πŸ˜‰

  • Book Review | Sinarut 1994 by @alis.padasian
Genre : Mystery, Paranormal, Real  Society #programbukusinarut1994ubc
--
First comes first, what actually derives me to read this book is how intimate it is with my Sabahan background. The people, the belief, it was all the reality of social life in Sabah back then. Also the eerie thingy actually excited me a bit to grab this book.
--
Since this is the first time that I read from Alis, I found that she have her own style of writing, which kinda interesting, and it was so unjustice if I compare her with other author, so then she deserve her own kind of comment for her own writing styles.
--
I love how she use local dialect in this book and if you are wondering, no, that its not how I talk πŸ˜‚, most of the dialect written in Sinarut 1994 comes from the Dusun/Kadazan ethnic. And yeah I do understand it but I cant pronounce it well πŸ˜‚.
--
The best part about this book is no matter how uneasy this book make me feel, it was the curiousity to unreveal the mystery  that keep me reading till the end. --
My top 5 YES β˜‘οΈ and ❎DONTS for this book:
β˜‘οΈ It has moral value
β˜‘οΈ You can learn the reality of Sabahan people by this book, the belief, the social life etc
β˜‘οΈ Good read for a fan of paranormal thingy
❎ DO NOT read this book at night, because it was super spooky (one of the reader also get fever after reading this book)
❎ Not suitable for those who have a weak heart πŸ—‘οΈ
Bonus : Sorrowful and cliffhanged end.
--
There are things that I think the author can improve, especially the stop and breath part. I know that she want to create that heart pumping effect by a single word but all what it do is leaving me in confusion - kenapa sambungan dia lain macam ni and I think it was a bit off πŸ€”. Also the 'part' of every character should be put some barriers, I tend to get confuse with which actions perform by whom.

Thank you @alis.padasian

Rate : 3/5🌟
  • Probably the most eye opening and revealing scammer in history of business.
---
I cant help but to feel a little symphaty with Elizabeth, she used to be an inspiration but in a blink of an eye Allah take it all away from her, this like an example how your determination in wanting something sometimes can go the other way, in this case,  lies and scamming.
---
Though all she wanted to do is to help people handle with needle (I have cousin that passed away because of cancer and she was 8 years old, with many bruises in her hand because of needles), I also have slight hope in making those machine possible.
---
But the real situation that makes Theranos falling hard is because of culture between BoD, layered of lies and thin transperency of information between directors and workers. It truly was a very shame situation, but inspite all of that, it was the bitter true that need to be swallowed : the machine was never existed! Pop sorry spoilers. ---
Its not only courages needed to bring a company down but big sacrifices, energy and time (perhaps a human life also) its all what it takes to expose a liar. Thank you to the author for writing this.
---
I read this book pun sebab nak tahu macamana dia scam, teruk jugalah, with the company culture tu lagi, haha. Tetiba I teringat, scammers pun boleh bertahan like 10 years lebih utk dapat dana and everything inikan pula niat yang suci murni? Teruskan lakukan apa yang anda suka asalkan ianya halal 😊. Recommend to those who curious macamanaa company of scammers ni boleh bertahan lebih dari 10 tahun πŸ€”. ---
My rating : 4/5 ✨
  • Book ReviewπŸ“–
The Boy Who Steal Houses, The Girl Who Steals His Heart by CG Drews (@paperfury) ---
This book, well the title have been summarized it altogether. And now im crying! A-G-A-I-N
---
What paperfury writes basically about a damaged kids dealing with earthlings without living out what it means to be one and only Paper Fury. This book make you cries and smiling for the next blink. A mixture of the Weasley twins but in her own aesthetic way (surely if you follow her IG and blog you'll understand how bright person she is) .
---
The second thing I would like to have a word about this book was the cover. Yellow and blue just so well mixed together and omg im crying again. It was an emotional  reading.
---
The character development just so taken care of, the dark, the bright and even the normal character were all well balanced in this pieces. And I just so in love with the gag pulled out in this book, it was so happy, natural and light just as a entertain and fresh it would be. Thanks for making my day more brighter! ---
Therefore my rate : 5🌟

QOTD : Most fave damaged character that makes you wanna hug and keep them inside your pocket which is nice and warm?
  • Sempena memasuki bulan kawin kawin (ogos-dec). Ayuhlah kita post gambar unboxing buku @imanpublication ❀️

Sapa dah baca angkat tangan? 😁

I have the funniest dialogue today. It happen when I text my bff to invite her as my photograph
assistant for our other bff reception. Well, orang kampung bilang, kawin lah juga kan tu reception. Only my other friend think dia kawin kali kedua, sbb nikahnya sudah lepas. Then she said 'Dia kawin sudah kali kedua, kitani jak blum terkahwin'
-
Guess what guys? 'Kerna ku selow, sangat selow, sungguh selow, tetap selow, santai dan tetap santai, jodoh gak akan kemana πŸ˜‚'
-
We may think we already messed thing up, but its all like just what Allah have planned for us. Sabar and tetap mengaut ilmu tentang rumah tangga. One of my fave author and reference semestinya ustaz Pahrol sebab gaya bahasa lemah dan lembut, direct to heart, jaranglah baca nukilan ustaz Pahrol tanpa berkaca mata. πŸ’•
  • QOTD : Buku retelling cerita klasik melayu yang korang pernah baca?

[Book Review] Sindrom by Tey Marzuki.
Publisher : DearNovel.
Genre : Fantasi Fiksyen, Penceritaan Semula, Ilmu Perubatan 😎
---
Bacaan paling pilu aku baca abad ini. Sindrom mengisahkan tentang seorang doktor perempuan yang tercampak ke zaman silam iaitu Afifah. Di negeri Panca Sakti dia mgikuti pengembaraan mencari permaisuri Sang Raja Muda, tapi we all know, she'll not only find that, but a love of her own. Persoalannya, mampukah cinta itu bertahan. Yet, not your typical malay romance story πŸ˜‹.
---
Buku ini lebih daripada retelling, details tentang kepakaran Afifah just so on point. Bukan hanya watak di dalam yang menerima benefitsnya, jelas aku juga turut sama mengaut ilmu dari perwatakan Afifah sebagai doktor. Yet, not your typical malay fiction πŸ˜‹
---
But, bit straightforward and lack of element of suprises that I give this book 4/5⭐. Definitely coming back into this book for reference. 😊 Well done to the author πŸ‘ #teymarzuki #sindrom
