    1. Bacalah mba, bagus banget. Yah, menurutku amat sangat mengesankan gitu deh bukunya. Kultur budaya Jawanya cukup kental, beda sama jenis metropop biasanya yg kadang dangkal dan hedon.

      Hihihi... I love Snape, jadi langsung deh kepikiran dia.

      Yes, ada temennya (kecewa dg Perfect Chemistry)

      Hapus
    2. Yappp...3Wedding-and-JaneAusten keren sih menurutku, meski subjektif, awalnya tertarik baca gegara 'mencatut' nama Jane Austen di judulnya...meski pula, sempet hampir gimanaaaa gitu pas nyadar alurnya 'agak' lambat...

      eh, masak sih Perfect Chemistry bikin kecewa, aku suka, hehehe *masalah selera* *sudah kepincut Simone Elkeles duluan*

      Hapus
    3. Haha.. iya alurnya itu mirip2 buku klasik ya..
      Penulisnya sengaja sebisa mungkin bikin plot dan gaya bahasa yg puitis tapi masih khas Indonesia gitu :P

      Aku sempet posting review PC dan alasan aku kecewa ada disitu smua :P

    1. Iya, silakan :D

      Haha. Abisnya gmn dong kalo emang ga ada jiwa puitis dlm diriku, #tsah

      Sarinah itu buku ttg feminisme, soalnya Soekarno dulu kan pengikut paham Sosialisme dan dia butuh peran wanita utk mendukung berdirinya negara sosialisme :D
