Reading Challenge 2014 : Lucky No. 14

Di saat masih mengira-ngira buku apa yang akan dibaca buat challenge-nya Mbak Maria, eh Mbak Astrid juga bikin RC buat tahun depan. hehehehe. Ikutan juga deh, akhirnya, karena kategorinya unyuh-unyuh. Semoga tahun depan saya bisa produktif, mengingat saya sudah harus skripsi tahun depan.

Oke ini peraturannya! (copas dari postingan Mbak Astrid)

Period of the Challenge: January 1, 2014 – December 31, 2014

This challenge will require you to read 14 books (or more) from 14 categories below. You can combine the books you read with other challenges, but can not use the same book for different categories in this challenge.

Try to match the categories from your TBR piles :) But if you don’t have any suitable books in your TBR – and want to find an excuse to buy a book for this challenge, that’s totally fine too! (waiki!)

Here are the 14 categories (yang berwarna merah adalah list sementara buku yang akan saya baca):

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.
Buku pilihan saya:
* Cosa Nostra: A History of The Sicilian Mafia - John Dickie

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?
Buku pilihan saya:
* Manusia Menjadi Tuhan - Eric Fromm
* Radikal Itu Menjual

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!
Buku pilihan saya:
* And The Mountains Echoed - Khaled Hosseini
* The Knife of Never Letting Go - Patrick Ness

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.
Buku pilihan saya:
* Next - Michael Crichton
* Unhibited, Robust, and Wide-Open - Lee C. Bollinger

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 :)
Buku pilihan saya:
* Anna Karenina - Leo Tolstoy (hufffft)

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)
Buku pilihan saya:
* Jiwa-Jiwa Mati - Nikolai Gogol

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!
Buku pilihan saya:
* (take a deep breath) Taiko - Eiji Yoshikawa

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.
Buku pilihan saya:
* Kafka on The Shore - Haruki Murakami and/or Sputnik Sweetheart - Haruki Murakami

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 :)
Buku pilihan saya:
* What The Dog Saw and Other Adventures - Malcolm Gladwell

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.
Buku pilihan saya:
* Breaking Dawn - Stephenie Meyer (yes, dammit, yeeeessss!!)

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
Buku pilihan saya:
* The Road Less Traveled - M. Scott Peck (hadiah dari beloved co-author <3)

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!
* umm.... mungkin saya akan coba baca anything Harlequine. Sudah lama pengen nyoba baca bukunya Lisa Kleypas atau Joanna Lindsey--eh bener nggak, namanya?

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!
Buku pilihan saya:
* Sailor Moon - Naoko Takeuchi (pengen nyoba namatin baca manga ini)

Yah, sementara baru itu, sih. Nanti akan diapdet kalau sudah nemu bukunya. hehehe. Huphup! Semoga bisa selesai!
