Ninevelove Blog Tour & Giveaway

Penulis: J.S. Khairen

Rating Shiori-ko: 3.5/5

Jika cinta bisa tumbuh tanpa alasan, bisakah kebencian juga lahir tanpa alasan? Karena kebencianku padanya sudah bulat dan berkeping-keping bahkan sebelum aku mengenalnya.

Aku tak tahu kenapa laki-laki berbadan kurus ceking itu tak pernah membuat hidupku tenang. Selalu ada saja ejekan dan celaan yang membuat gundukan kebencianku semakin tinggi dan siap meletus kapan pun ia mau. Ya, Joven Sayoeti Chaniago—wartawan junior Majalah Cakrawala sekaligus rekanku di Tinta Kampus—seakan tak rela melihatku bahagia dengan senyum mengembang di pipi.

Aku pun merawat dengan baik kebencian itu. Menyiramnya dengan ledekan juga tawa puasnya, agar suatu hari nanti aku bisa membalasnya. Namun, saat pohon kebencian itu tumbuh dan berbuah, aku benar-benar tercengang. Tak kudapati bara di dalamnya. Hanya candu yang membuat aku terikat, hingga aku tak bisa melepaskan diri darinya.

A revolutionary reappraisal of how to educate our children and young people by the New York Times bestselling author of The Element and Finding Your Element

Ken Robinson is one of the world’s most influential voices in education, and his 2006 TED Talk on the subject is the most viewed in the organization’s history. Now, the internationally recognized leader on creativity and human potential focuses on one of the most critical issues of our time: how to transform the nation’s troubled educational system. At a time when standardized testing businesses are raking in huge profits, when many schools are struggling, and students and educators everywhere are suffering under the strain, Robinson points the way forward. He argues for an end to our outmoded industrial educational system and proposes a highly personalized, organic approach that draws on today’s unprecedented technological and professional resources to engage all students, develop their love of learning, and enable them to face the real challenges of the twenty-first century. Filled with anecdotes, observations and recommendations from professionals on the front line of transformative education, case histories, and groundbreaking research—and written with Robinson’s trademark wit and engaging style—Creative Schools will inspire teachers, parents, and policy makers alike to rethink the real nature and purpose of education.

The Unexpected Everything

Penulis: Morgan Matson
Jumlah halaman: 331 halaman
Tahun terbit: 2016
Penerbit: Simon & Schuster Books for Young Readers
Harga: USD 12.99 di Kobo Store
Format: EPUB
Rating Shiori-ko: 5/5

A New York Times bestseller!

From Morgan Matson, the bestselling author of Since You’ve Been Gone comes a feel-good story of friendship, finding yourself, and all the joys in life that happen while you’re busy making other plans.

Andie has a plan. And she always sticks to her plan.

Future? A top-tier medical school.
Dad? Avoid him as much as possible (which isn’t that hard considering he’s a Congressman and he’s never around).
Friends? Palmer, Bri, and Toby—pretty much the most awesome people on the planet, who needs anyone else?
Relationships? No one’s worth more than three weeks.

So it’s no surprise that Andie’s got her summer all planned out too.

Until a political scandal costs Andie her summer pre-med internship, and lands both she and Dad back in the same house together for the first time in years. Suddenly she’s doing things that aren’t Andie at all—working as a dog walker, doing an epic scavenger hunt with her dad, and maybe, just maybe, letting the super cute Clark get closer than she expected. Palmer, Bri, and Toby tell her to embrace all the chaos, but can she really let go of her control?
