Worth Your Time: Antologi Jiwa Kacau

Bila kali terakhir aku buat review novel eh? Lama jugak ke baru? Kesah pulak aku nak review apa. Tapi kalau review novel dari aku, lagi banyak novel thriller/seram lah berbanding novel cinta. Yes, I'm that keras person liddat. Sampaikan pakwe cakap: "Dear future kids, don't read thriller novels like your future mom do. It scares me, a lot." Aiceceh. Mengada lettew.

Okay sebelum aku meleret ke topik cinta yang tak sepatutnya. Tadaaaaa!

Nama dah antologi, so ada banyak lah cerita dalam ni. Ada 5 totalnya:

#1: Tragedi di Lampu Isyarat; Elle Mardiana.
Twist yang aku dapat dari cerita ni sangat power. Kesan yang mendalam yawww. Terutama part-part seram, ngeri. Tak usah kabo. Best =)

#2: Menari Dalam Duka; Attokz Dikulgai.
Mengajar aku erti kesabaran dalam menghabiskan cerita ni. Mula-mula aku fikir nak skip jugak. Tapi bila aku mendalami, oh I wish I know Arzam Domino (by the way watak dia suka makan Domino's Pizza) okay tu je nak cakap. Ada sinar-sinar keinsafan lepas baca cerita ni.

#3: Dendam Bunga Dahlia; Lyn Dayana.
Power, power. Dan buat watak dia hidup dalam ketakutan. Buat aku tak sabar nak habiskan. Banyak menghapuskan sisa-sisa dendam dalam hati aku. Dendam tu boleh buat kita membunuh. Dan membunuh ituuuuuuu....... *buat gaya cikgu* okay dah. 

#4: Buru Bayangan Luka; Dhiya Zafira.
Susah, kalau jadi pesakit mental dan berusaha bagitau semua orang yang kau percaya; yang ada orang nak bunuh kau! Sedangkan orang normal pun susah nak buat benda yang sama. Twisted story, awesome.

#5: Cinta Berdarah; Salina Salleh.
Kalau dah cinta, manusia sanggup buat apa saja. Tapi kalau yang dicinta itu sudah tiada, mengapa masih menekan diri hingga merana. Kesian dengan watak Helmi ni. Kesian jugak dengan Aisyah. Hmmm. Kesian.

Sebenarnya, adik aku yang berminat dengan novel ni, aku tak pandang sangat lah awal-awalnya. Tapi ada benda yang menarik pasal cover dia, macam memanggil-manggil. Dan aku sangat mudah jatuh cinta pada cover novel yang power-power ni.

A novel that worth your time. =)

15 Lessons Learnt in Life

It's second half of the year and I'm half way through my life as 22 year old woman who still trip and make mistakes, stumbles here and there, try to make life worth living, somehow.
I did this game on Twitter, 1 like = 1 lesson learnt in life. So I decided to take it here and document all my thoughts on life, because every single thing I've learned so far is an advice to future me. 

1. Everything is temporary. People, attention, position, affection. Nothing stays forever and I've lost enough in life.
I've lost a lot of friends and enemies through time of my life. I get discouraged when people left my life, for whatever reason they did. I tend to blame myself, thinking where did I went wrong, until I came to my realization that nothing lasts forever. I raised myself to not depends to anyone anymore and be a new me - an individualistic person who values myself over everything else.
2. People have different opinions. But opinions can be molded with bigotry, racism an…

My Bipolar Diary VI: New Antidepressants

I haven't written quiet awhile about my bipolar journey - I think my depression really gets me drowned into a dark pit. I have been in low moods, low appettite, constant anxiety for a month and more now - reason why I stopped blooging my experience.
To a lot of people, opening up about mental health condition isn't an easy thing, especially to people that you love, solely because you don't want to burden them with your "small" issues. I always think that my problem is small, crying, whining, frustration, blankness as something that I shouldn't talk with anyone, just because other people had it worst than me, but they managed it well.
But I came across one article the other day telling me - everyone have their own limit and capacity of managing stress. Yours is smaller, but that's okay. You will thrive and get through it by time. Time will heal, of course.
So I went for my last appointment with my psychiatrist today - and I got prescribed with an antidepr…

Buku Tebal Challenge by @BookendsMY

Everyone who knows me know that I am a bibliophile - and I'm targetting myself to read 60 books this year (Follow my 2017 Reading Challenge on Goodreads!)
So on July, a reading community called BookendsMY had organised Buku Tebal Challenge, where we got to read a book, over 500 pages, and post our reviews about the book in any platform. I always loved Goodreads because it allows writer to read comments about their books and interact with them, too.
Follow me on Goodreads!
So my pick for the Buku Tebal Challenge was American Gods by Neil Gaiman.

Check out what I say about Gaiman's American Gods:

Phew. It was a roller coaster ride for two days I spent on this book, ignoring everything that happened in this world just for Shadow's adventure.

I can't find anything that I hate about this book, truly a read that brings the meaning of belief and religion and emotional attachment and detachment, value of life and death to a person, and to believe that something has bigger powe…
