[Top Ten Tuesday] All Time Favorite Authors

a weekly meme by The Broke and the Bookish

This Tuesday topic is about all time favorite authors, which the meaning for me is the author whose books succeed in leaving a special and deep impression in me. Here's the list, half of them are Indonesian authors. ^^

Tere Liye. I haven't read all of his books, just several of them. But I won't hesitate put him on the first list in my favorite author because.. God! His books always left me with tons of emotion and tears! Also I like his books because it always seems real and so-human (pardon my ugly words) and just because of its simplicity!
Orizuka. If I want to read something light but full of lesson, I will definitely pick Orizuka's. I love her because her books always make me smile every time I close the last page of hers. Other reason that makes me favorite her is because she is friendly. I would definitely so GLAD if someday I could meet her and talk about much things like friends usually do! :3

[REVIEW] Before I Go to Sleep

"Tomorrow? I have no tomorrow, I thought. Just as I had no yesterday."

Title: Before I Go to Sleep
Author: S.J. Watson
Publisher: Black Swan
Published: 2011
Pages: 372
ISBN: 978-0552-164-13-9
I rate it 4.5/5 stars

When we woke up from sleep, sometimes we felt dislocated: what day is today, what dream we dreamt last night, or so. But those things just happened temporarily. Minutes later, we could figure out all those things.

Not like Christine.

Every time she woke up, she would forget all that happened yesterdays. She would forget that she's married to Ben for years. She would remember herself as twenty years old her, then confused when she found out a man slept beside her and a reflection of her in the mirror but it's way too old. The time she found out those surprising facts, Ben would explain to her that he's her husband and that there was an accident which caused her forget yesterdays whenever she woke up from her sleep.

How could she know that he's telling truth or lie?

Fortunately, she had her journal. Without Ben's knowing, she met a doctor named Nash who helped her to cure her unusual amnesia. He has suggested her to write everything happened in that day in her journal, so the next day she could read the journal after he reminded her to read them.

But something's strange about the journal. Ben didn't know about it. She even hid it from Ben. Also in the front page, she has written DON'T TRUST BEN. And after reading half of her journal, she figured out that Ben has been always told her lies.
