wishful wednesdayArghhh what a week. Work deadlines, Yofel’s nanny took long days off (she deserved it though), my big boss leaving the office, and the latest sad news, my Personal Trainer in gym is moving to another place too!!! Honestly I’ve never thought that losing a personal trainer would be like the end of the world but turned out it totally is!!!

Anyway, need a huge BOOK SHOPPING SPREE to tackle the rest of this week. But guess what? I’m on a budget too!!!! So Wishful Wednesday is the answer. There’s nothing like dreaming and piling up the wishful thinking🙂

Jadi… minggu ini, saya kepingin banget-banget ngelengkapin koleksi Flavia de Luce by Alan Bradley. Kisah detektif cilik bersetting Inggris kuno ini sudah memikat saya sejak buku pertama dan kedua, sementara buku ketiga dan keempat, meski nggak sewow buku-buku awal, tetap bikin penasaran. Rata-rata buku serial ini memang mempunyai rating cukup tinggi, bahkan ada beberapa yang dapat rating lebih dari 4 bintang.

Dan ternyata – serial ini sudah mencapai akhirnya, karena buku kelima dan keenam juga sudah terbit lhooo… Tentu mengungkap rahasia besar yang menjadi tanda tanya sejak awal, tentang keberadaan ibu Flavia dan misteri kelam keluarganya.

speaking from bones

Speaking from Among the Bones, buku kelima yang bersetting di gereja kuno di desa kecil Flavia:

“A churchyard in the March moonlight should be enough to give anyone the ging-gang-goolies, but not this girl.” Chemist Flavia de Luce 11 finds masked body of angelic church organist Mr Collicott hidden in the tomb of St Tancred. Magistrate Quentin Ridley-Smith, adult son Jocelyn damaged, tries to stop the opening. Adam Tradescant Sowerby is a helpful flora-archaelogist.

dead in vaulted arches

The Dead in Their Vaulted Arches, buku terakhir yang membeberkan semua jawaban atas misteri-misteri yang muncul sejak awal seri ini.

On a spring morning in 1951, eleven-year-old chemist and aspiring detective Flavia de Luce gathers with her family at the railway station, awaiting the return of her long-lost mother, Harriet. Yet upon the train’s arrival in the English village of Bishop’s Lacey, Flavia is approached by a tall stranger who whispers a cryptic message into her ear.

Moments later, he is dead, mysteriously pushed under the train by someone in the crowd…

Who was this man, what did his words mean, and why were they intended for Flavia? Back home at Buckshaw, the de Luces’ crumbling estate, Flavia puts her sleuthing skills to the test.

Following a trail of clues sparked by the discovery of a reel of film stashed away in the attic, she unravels the deepest secrets of the de Luce clan, involving none other than Winston Churchill himself.

Surrounded by family, friends, and a famous pathologist from the Home Office – and making spectacular use of Harriet’s beloved Gypsy Moth plane, Blithe Spirit – Flavia will do anything, even take to the skies, to land a killer.

Semogaaaa segera kesampaian baca buku-buku ini🙂 Entah kenapa, susah banget dapetnya, padahal biasanya mass market paperbacknya gampang dicari di Periplus atau Kinokuniya…
