wishful wednesday

Yeaay, it’s Wednesday again🙂 Time to do some wishing and dreaming!

Minggu ini, lagi kesengsem (pardon my French) sama buku barunya Lauren Oliver. Saya termasuk cukup suka dengan buku-bukunya Lauren, terutama yang ditujukan untuk anak-anak. Kisah-kisahnya segar, imajinatif, dan karakter-karakternya juga mudah untuk disukai.

Buku terbarunya, The Shrunken Head (The Curiosity House #1), sepertinya bakal seru. Apalagi berhubungan dengan museum makhluk aneh, satu topik yang menurut saya selalu menarik dan bikin penasaran.

Nice cover!!!

Nice cover!!!

What you will find in this book:

– A rather attractive bearded lady
– Several scandalous murders
– A deliciously disgusting Amazonian shrunken head
– Four extraordinary children with equally extraordinary abilities
– A quite loquacious talking bird

Blessed with extraordinary abilities, orphans Philippa, Sam, and Thomas have grown up happily in Dumfrey’s Dime Museum of Freaks, Oddities, and Wonders. But when a fourth child, Max, a knife-thrower, joins the group, it sets off an unforgettable chain of events. When the museum’s Amazonian shrunken head is stolen, the four are determined to get it back. But their search leads them to a series of murders and an explosive secret about their pasts.

This sensational new series combines the unparalleled storytelling gifts of Lauren Oliver with the rich knowledge of the notorious relics collector H.C. Chester.

What you will NOT find in this book:

– An accountant named Seymour
– A never-ending line at the post office
– Brussel sprouts (shudder)
– A lecture on finishing all your homework on time
– A sweet, gooey story for nice little girls and boys.

Seru kan? Gaya sinopsisnya yang witty ala Lemony Snickets aja udah bikin penasaran. Semoga bisa cepet baca buku ini🙂
