I’m done by reading the third Classic Literature Club Series, Hyouka Ketiga : Urutan Kudryavka and ready to give my review of the book. It took me two hour to finish it. Not bad. Whatever it is, I’m happy thus feels unreal how come I can finish reading the book though it made me yawn over and over by reading the book. Please don’t misunderstand my line, I’m not saying that Honobu great books as a spiritless, indeed I thought Hyouka especially this one Urutan Kudryavka, I’m just always yawn when reading. I am very encouraged by the success of the Classic Literature Club members, Oreki Houtarou, Chitanda Eru, Fukube Satoshi and Ibara Mayaka for selling almost all the Hyouka’s anthology besides completing the mystery that took place during the Kanya Festival.

In this third installment of Classic Literature Club Series, compared to the first two installment, I have to say that the case in this book it’s quite complicated. Thus, before this third installment, Honobu only write Oreki Houtarou as the only point of view of the book while in this one there are four different point of views which is Oreki Houtarou, Chitanda Eru, Fukube Satoshi and Ibara Mayaka. Lucky me I got what I read cause sometimes I confused who the part is. I thought this one much easier, it helped to understand the other characters thoughts and because I can tell what they feel when they will face Kamiyama Cultural Festival, which is more well-known as Kanya Festa by the student. What the most interesting part is when Houtarou shout Satoshi’s name in one of the chapters. Okay there’s nothing to do with it but I still love the part.

The story begins with the Classic Club members being worried about the mistake that happened at their club, and how they’re going to deal with the problem during the three days of the Kamiyama Cultural Festival. Here, Honobu started writing different point of views, start with Chitanda Eru, Fukube Satoshi, Oreki Houtarou and Ibara Mayaka. Honobu certainly deserves a round of applause when he including Chitanda Eru as a first point because as a curious citizen, I want to know more about Chitanda family history. Though the story line of the first chapter quite slow, I still consider to read without skipping any of them cause I can’t denies that I love when it comes to

When four of them trying to settle down the problem relates to the anthology that they’d works together alongside to spread the name of the club to to ensure the anthology was sold within three days of the festival by means of joining any activity organized by any clubs including radio broadcast club, but a strange things started to happen around the Classic Club members, where a thief called “Juumonji” stole the props of the clubs in Kamiyama High then leaving a note for them as proof of his action. Houtarou claimed that ‘Juumonji’ do that for fun when having his bento, trying to not look at Chitanda big ‘I’m curious’ eyes. The main problem is the anthology that which is printed above the amount they want so Satoshi told his idea of using Juumonji incident to resolve their problem.

For this reason, Oreki Tomoe play an important role by giving Houtarou a fountain pen, and later trading Houtarou’s hand mirror for a copy of “Abu di Senjakala”, which Houtarou later required to solve the Juumonji Incident. How I wish Honobu will write more about Oreki Tomoe in his next book (no kidding, he’s tweeted about the seventh volume)

Hyouka Urutan Kudryavka

I have a fondness for Houtarou by blackmail Juumonji and at the same time made him bought some of the anthology and sell it through the school’s website. Houtarou also made a plan for make sure students bought those anthology using Juumonji name. Somehow, I hate Ibara’s part. I get it why she’s won’t quit from Manga Club because her love for manga and she’s ingenious. She know how to draw, not only read the manga, she know what the best when it comes to manga but if I’m in her place, I’ll quit and focus on Classic Club only. Being in a club with a disaster club’s members will piss me off.

Well that’s all for now. I hope this average of review will make you want to buy Hyouka Ketiga : Urutan Kudryavka. Sorry for any shortcomings and thank you for reading .

Life Lately – A Letter To My 15-Year-Old Self

Maybe some of you may think that this is kind of old school blog post, but I have my own reason to write this old-school post. Happy reading and be amazing.

A Letter To My 15-Year-Old Self

Hello my dear third-year high school self. How are you? I’m writing this letter ten years in your future. Why am I writing to you when you’re in high school? Turn a great playlist on a good, grab a cup of coffee and keep reading.

So, with this letter, I would like to tell you that you don’t need to worry much about future. Your future, of course amazing enough to live with. I know you’re think a lot about future. Can you further your studies, what’s kind of job you’ll get, with whom you will and when you’ll get married and have cheeky little kid, and so much much much more. But for now, just enjoy and take your time being a teenager and experience this time. Time will fly by and never return back. There’s no such thing like a time machine in Doraemon animation to bring you back to the past, so again, enjoy and experience everything in between.

Just want you know that you’re someone with a title addicted to coffee. I know that you know that you’re addicted to coffee. Listen up girl, addicted to coffee is more better than addicted to social media, misdemeanour, attracted to the silly boys that not serious about relationships. All them only want to hurt you. If you still feel bad, at least you’re drinking what you want to, not what others want. Got it?

Urmm… Now let’s talk about our skin before I run out of idea. I know how bad you can’t wait to see those acne and scars go away but I’m sorry for making you feel dreadful. One of your dreams didn’t comes true but I still love your efforts to make sure your skin being better than before. Something is better than nothing, babe. Don’t worry about it, it’s just minor problem. Your teeth too. No matter how much you told yourself ‘I’ll wears braces, sooner or later’, you’re not, cause your teeth condition is not that bad c: .

YOU ARE NOT UGLY. Never ever let people tell you how ugly you are because you are not. Every woman should be able to tell themselves how beautiful they are, not others. They should know that beauty comes from inside. As long as you do virtuous and outstanding, that means you’re beautiful. Not forget being someone with beauty with the brain.

Hugs and kisses, your grown up self.

Review :

In the second installment of the Kotenbu Series, the characters are more fleshed out and they become more alive than the first book Hyouka. It might be because we already know the set up of the story through Hyouka, or because the story is simply better than the first one. While the first one is still memorable to me to some extend, the second installment brought much fun and entertainment to me as a reader, especially when we see how the hero take the wrong step and make the wrong decision because of the “Empress”. Nobody is perfect including Houtarou.

The second book told the story about the process to the Culture Festival in Kamiyama High School, where Class 2-F is struggling to find the replacement writer of their “Mystery” (working title) movie because the original writer was suddenly collapsed and sick due to, as they claimed, working for too hard on the preparation

The Classic Clubs members are asked by the leader of 2-F, Irisu Fuyumi nicknamed as the “Empress” by the other students, to help in finding the best storyline for the movie that was abruptly ended in the middle due to the original writer unable to finish it because she’s sick

This sounds simple and easy, but when you start reading it, it’s actually not. There are a lot of things to think about, from the plot, the setting, the script, the reference books, to the intention of the original writer. Reading the pages after pages of this book never makes me bored, therefore I gave the book 5-star for its excellency in blending the mystery with some little humour to the story.
