Lucky No.14 Reading Challenge

lucky-no141Yak, sudah memasuki bulan Desember 2013, yang berarti saatnya memasang target Reading Challenge di tahun 2014. Sebenarnya aku tidak berniat untuk mengikuti banyak RC di tahun 2014 mengingat kegagalan sebagian besar RC yang aku ikuti di tahun 2013 *tutupmuka*, namun ketika membaca peraturan di RC ini yang cukup mudah dan tidak neko-neko, akhirnya aku terjebak juga untuk mengikutinya. *sembah Mbak Astrid*

Langsung saja, inilah kategori yang dipersyaratkan dalam memilih 14 buku yang harus dibaca di tahun 2014:

  1. Visit The Country: Read a book that has setting in a country that you really want to visit in real life. Make sure the setting has a big role in the book and it can make you know a little bit more about your dream destination.
  2. Cover Lust: Pick a book from your shelf that you bought because you fell in love with the cover. Is the content as good as the cover?
  3. Blame it on Bloggers: Read a book because you’ve read the sparkling reviews from other bloggers. Don’t forget to mention the blogger’s names too!
  4. Bargain All The Way: Ever buying a book because it’s so cheap you don’t really care about the content? Now it’s time to open the book and find out whether it’s really worth your cents.
  5. (Not So) Fresh From the Oven: Do you remember you bought/got a new released book last year but never had a chance to read it? Dig it from your pile and bring back the 2013.
  6. First Letter’s Rule: Read a book which title begins with the same letter as your name (for me, Astrid means A, and I can read anything that started with the letter A). Remember: Articles like “a”, “an” or “the” doesn’t count :)
  7. Once Upon a Time: Choose a book that’s been published for the first time before you were born (not necessarily has to be a classic book, just something a little bit older than you is okay. You can read the most recent edition if you want to)
  8. Chunky Brick: Take a deep breath, and read a book that has more than 500 pages. Yep, the one that you’ve always been afraid of!
  9. Favorite Author: You like their books, but there are too many titles. This is your chance, choose a book that’s been written by your fave author but you haven’t got time to read it before.
  10. It’s Been There Forever: Pick up a book that has been there on your shelf for more than a year, clean up the dust and start to read it now :)
  11. Movies vs Books: You’ve seen the movie adaptation (or planned to see it soon) but never had time to read the book. It’s time to read it now, so you can compare the book vs the movie.
  12. Freebies Time: What’s the LAST free book you’ve got? Whether it’s from giveaway, a birthday gift or a surprise from someone special, don’t hold back any longer. Open the book and start reading it now :D
  13. Not My Cup of Tea: Reach out to a genre that you’ve never tried (or probably just disliked) before. Whether it’s a romance, horror or non fiction, maybe you will find a hidden gem!
  14. Walking Down The Memory Lane: Ever had a book that you loved so much as a kid? Or a book that you wish you could read when you were just a child? Grab it now and prepare for a wonderful journey to the past :) Comic books or graphic novels are allowed!

Beberapa peraturan pokok untuk RC ini antara lain:

  1. Membaca sedikitnya satu buku untuk setiap katergori
  2. Membuat master post dan menyusun daftar buku yang akan dibaca yang bisa diedit di kemudian hari
  3. Membuat review untuk setiap kategori yang link-nya dimasukkan ke master post yang telah disediakan paling lambat 31 Desember 2014
  4. Wrap post yang link-nya dimasukkan ke master post yang telah disediakan paling lambat 1 Januari 2015
  5. Dua orang yang beruntung akan dipilih langsung untuk mendapatkan goodie bag terkait buku dari Mbak Astrid! *yippie*

Untuk pertanyaan lebih lanjut bisa langsung ditanyakan ke sini ya 🙂 Nah, sementara ini buku-buku yang aku pilih untuk mengikuti RC ini:

  1. Visit The Country –>
