May (and a little bit April) Recap

Tuesday, May 31, 2016

I celebrated my 17 birthday in April! 17 is a big deal here since it's the official legal age--now I can drive (I haven't learn, though) and vote. Other than that, as expected, April is really really busy.

As for May, well, I actually got a one week holiday at the beginning of it. Unfortunately, I got a blogging slumps again since I'm really really tired and just want to sleep all day. After that, there's many exams again until last week, when I finished my final examinations.

Now, I can promise to you guys that I'll be really active in June (and hopefully, July), though I will be vacationing to Bali with my friends at the beginning of June (this Saturday!)

Review : The Heir by Kiera Cass

Wednesday, May 4, 2016
Title : The Heir
Author : Kiera Cass
Genre : YA dystopia
Release Date : May 5th, 2015
Publisher : HarperTeen


Princess Eadlyn has grown up hearing endless stories about how her mother and father met. Twenty years ago, America Singer entered the Selection and won the heart of Prince Maxon—and they lived happily ever after. Eadlyn has always found their fairy-tale story romantic, but she has no interest in trying to repeat it. If it were up to her, she'd put off marriage for as long as possible.

But a princess's life is never entirely her own, and Eadlyn can't escape her very own Selection—no matter how fervently she protests.

Eadlyn doesn't expect her story to end in romance. But as the competition begins, one entry may just capture Eadlyn's heart, showing her all the possibilities that lie in front of her . . . and proving that finding her own happily ever after isn't as impossible as she's always thought.
