wishful wednesday

HALOOOOO 🙂

Maafkan yaaa… sudah lama sekali blog ini terbengkalai #usirsaranglabalaba

Gara-gara jadwal traveling yang menggila, lalu kesibukan di kantor, dan berbagai printilan lainnya, saya benar-benar nggak punya energi untuk membuat review, bahkan posting WW sekalipun. Kangen sekaliii berandai-andai.

Semoga semangat kalian belum surut ya untuk bermimpi tentang buku-buku 🙂

Saya tadi pagi baru saja menamatkan buku Annihilation, serial pertama dari trilogi Southern Reach (Jeff VanderMeer). Biasanya I’m not a sucker for science fiction but this one was written so well. The creepiness, the “real” feeling of it all…. Argh. Horror banget pokoknya.

Saya jadi penasaran mau segera baca kedua buku sequelnya. Dan voila, itulah WW saya minggu ini 🙂

authorityAuthority (book 2):

After thirty years, the only human engagement with Area X–a seemingly malevolent landscape surrounded by an invisible border and mysteriously wiped clean of all signs of civilization–has been a series of expeditions overseen by a government agency so secret it has almost been forgotten: the Southern Reach. Following the tumultuous twelfth expedition chronicled in Annihilation, the agency is in complete disarray.

John Rodrigues (aka “Control”) is the Southern Reach’s newly appointed head. Working with a distrustful but desperate team, a series of frustrating interrogations, a cache of hidden notes, and hours of profoundly troubling video footage, Control begins to penetrate the secrets of Area X. But with each discovery he must confront disturbing truths about himself and the agency he’s pledged to serve.

In Authority, the second volume of Jeff VanderMeer’s Southern Reach trilogy, Area X’s most disturbing questions are answered . . . but the answers are far from reassuring.

acceptanceAcceptance (book 3):

It is winter in Area X, the mysterious wilderness that has defied explanation for thirty years, rebuffing expedition after expedition, refusing to reveal its secrets. As Area X expands, the agency tasked with investigating and overseeing it–the Southern Reach–has collapsed on itself in confusion. Now one last, desperate team crosses the border, determined to reach a remote island that may hold the answers they’ve been seeking. If they fail, the outer world is in peril.

Meanwhile, Acceptance tunnels ever deeper into the circumstances surrounding the creation of Area X–what initiated this unnatural upheaval? Among the many who have tried, who has gotten close to understanding Area X–and who may have been corrupted by it?

In this last installment of Jeff VanderMeer’s Southern Reach trilogy, the mysteries of Area X may be solved, but their consequences and implications are no less profound–or terrifying.

Penasaran bangeeeet…..Semoga bisa kesampean segera… Mengingat dollar mungkin akan terus melonjak, huhu..
