Kabar Perbukuan

Selamat malam, generasi optimis!

Sudah lama saya tidak berbincang-bincang mengenai perbukuan di blog ini. Jadi, apa yang baru ya?

Oh, kabar timbunan seperti biasanya ya.

  • Dikarenakan saya alhamdulillah dapat rejeki nomplok curplusan dari kantor kebangganku Leighton (HAHAHA. Eh saya cukup bangga jadi lulusan Leighton sih, banyak dapat pelajaran dan network yang meluas. Alhamdulillah lagi), tentu tidak dilewatkan untuk menghamburkannya dengan membeli buku. Apa yang saya beli? Dua saja sih. Yaitu, The Grownup by Gillian Flynn dan The Litigators by John Grisham. Yang satu memang sudah diincar lama dan sudah kelar karna bukunya tipis hahahah. Yang satunya random saja, karna lagi pengen baca tentang penyelidikan-penyelidikan tapi yang ga capek kejar-kejaran dan kebetulan pengen nyobain baca John Grisham selain serial Theo Boone jadi yah~

Starting Over

Sekali-sekali pengen trendi lah kayak yang lain, bikin blog buku.  Kemudian ingat pernah punya blog ini. Mari dihidupkan kembali.

Tapi kayaknya bakalan ga selalu dipake buat review-review, karna saya agak cupu kalo disuruh ngereview buku. :p Mungkin sekedar merekam jejak timbunan saja. Biar inget punya timbunan apa aja.

(Baik itu yang di rumah di Jogja maupun yang di kosan)

Ganti nama blog menyesuaikan dengan maksud dan tujuan, dan ganti themes juga (Ih, sekarang WordPress kok themesnya lucuk-lucuk sih).

So, let’s begin!

Hogwarts: A History

after the end of the series on Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows, and considering that the second part of the Deathly Hallows film would be released this year, I think JK Rowling should write another companion books that mentioned many times on the series.

you know, she wrote Quidditch Through Ages which makes us got complete information and history about the most legendary sports on wizard world (of Harry Potter, of course), Quidditch. also, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, which got us complete information about magical creatures, not only for Harry Potter’s world, but that ever mentioned far from Harry Potter era.

the last companion book that Rowling wrote (not far after the release of Deathly Hallows) is The Tales of Beedle The Bard, which has helped the trio to found the Deathly Hallows. it has the fairytale of wizards, like we had in our world, Cinderella, Beauty and The Beast, Snow White, etc, etc.

later on my search, I got this. WHOA! I never knew. what a bad fan I am 🙁 JK Rowling wrote a 800 words of Harry Potter prequel, the story tells about what happened 3 years before Harry was born. too bad she decided to not working on it. she just sticks to that 800 words. she wrote that (sounds like accidentally) for a charity auction.

another search leads me to this news. she plans to write Harry Potter Encyclopedia! WHOA WHOA. that’s cool. although, I don’t know, it seems useless for a die-hard fans who (probably) got amazing memories of everything in the books, die-hard fans could tell you the whole story and characters without looking at the books. that’s a nice plan.

I also want to give a suggestion. how about JK Rowling writes Hogwarts: A History? Hogwarts was a magical school to many people in the world. many people are dying to have a school like that, to live in that neighborhood. really, I’m sure many people are waiting for this book to be released. somehow, I also am curious, how can the students rarely read the book, hahahah.

then again, maybe this is another way to keep the Harry Potter universe to be remembered by everyone after the ended of the books and movies.
