Original Master Post

Reading challenges ini digagas oleh kak astrid, dan dilaunching sejak pertengahan November lalu. Melalui Lucky No.14 Reading Challenges ini, tantangannya adalah membaca buku berdasarkan 14 kategori yang ditawarkan dalam reading challenge. Aturan main reading challenges yang satu ini, bisa cek di sini. Nah, di master post ini (saya prefer space berupa page tersendiri, biar gampang dicari), saya akan mencantumkan reading list yang masuk ke dalam 14 kategori, sebagai berikut:

  • 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.

Kalau ada negara yang ingin saya kunjungi, mereka mungkin adalah: Inggris, Jepang, Jerman, Palestina dan Mesir. Buku dengan latar negara yang barusan saya sebutkan, pasti ada di luar sana. Hanya, saya belum menemukan judulnya😛 Selain itu, its tricky. Lebih baik mana, mengunjungi negara-negara itu lewat novel fiksi atau buku travelling sekalian?

  • 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?

  • 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!

I  blame kak Mia GR Review’s for The Husband’s Secret. Well, Liane Moriarty’s work is good. Both the writing and the story. I can’t wait to read The Husband’s Secret. I have a special occasion for Liane Moriarty that i decided to read her books in publication date order and now i’m on the second book of her called The Last Anniversary so i guess in the beginning of 2014 would be the perferct time to read The Husband’s Secret. Next, i blame leeswammes for her review of Black Swan Green, here. I don’t have other reason except that i’m interested. And last, i blame Rory (fourth street review) for her playlist of Empire Falls, here. Yes, she made a playlist for Empire Falls! I imagine myself reading Empire Falls while trying to listen to her self-made Empire Falls literary soundtrack.

  • 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.

  • (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.

Reality Boy by A.S King

  • 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 :)

Pas banget kado dari santa, The False Prince, bisa dimasukin ke kategori ini. Hehhe. Selebihnya, Forgive Me Leonard Peacock saya pilih karena pengarangnya: Matthew Quick. Saya udah baca 2 buku dari Matthew Quick, so far his work is good and i hope this one too.


The False Prince by Jennifer A. Nielsen

Flora & Ullyses by Kate DiCamillo

Fever 1793 by Laurie Halse Anderson

  • 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).

Buku ini dicetak pertama kali di tahun 1963, dan saya sendiri baru aware tentang buku ini beberapa bulan belakangan. Sebenarnya udah masuk reading list di Oktober lalu saat saya nyesuain even Mental Health Week, tapi gagal dibaca. Udah ngebet pengen tahu isinya kayak apa. Jadi kebetulan deh, bisa fit in ke kategori ini.

  • 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!

The next question is, ‘Do I dare?‘😄

Rindu by Tere Liye

  • 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.

And so, its favorite authors category because i add more than one author’s works. This year i found them: Neil Gaiman, Lois Lowry, Jojo Moyes and Rainbow Rowell.


The Willoughbys by Lois Lowry

  • 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 :)

Can i have one book for two categories? Because i’ll add Foucault’s Pendulum by Umberto Eco here too.

The Tiger Rising – Kate DiCamillo

  • 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.

Sorry, i don’t have any title now. I’ll update later for this category. Hmm, but maybe The Lord of The Rings trilogy will do.

  • 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

The Naked Traveler 4 was a birthday gift and Titik Nol was a giveaway for #ResensiPilihan Gramedia.

The Naked Traveler 4 by Trinity

Bintang di Atas Alhambra by Ang Zen

  • 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!

The next question, again, ‘Do I dare?‘😐

  • 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!

Poor me because i don’t read when i was a child so i have no memory of first book that enlightened my childhood’s day. So, i’ll have the next option: book that i wish i could read when i was just a child. They would be Newbery Books😛 (since i don’t have any personal experience recommendation and because i enjoy newbery books so much).
