Lucky No 14 Reading Challenge

We almost arrive to 2014 so it's time to make a plan for anything including reading plan. I always join reading challenge every year, so when i read about this one in Astrid Lim blog, i decided to jump into it. If you want more details information about this reading challenge, then you can find it here. 

Here are the 14 categories:
  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. --> Nights of Rain and Stars by Maeve Binchy because the number one place that i always want to visit is Greek 
  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? --> Neverending Story by Michael Ende
  3. Blame it on Blogger : Read a book because you’ve read the sparkling reviews from other bloggers. Don’t forget to mention the blogger’s names too! --> Fanda makes me wanna read this one badly --> Germinal by Emile Zola
  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. --> I found this one just $1 at Brash Basah Singapore --> Island of the Blue Dolphins by Scott O'Dell
  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 --> And the Mountains Echoed by Khaled Hosseini
  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 --> Anne of the Green Gables by Louisa May Alcott
  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) --> The Hunch Back of Notre Dame by Victor Hugo
  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! --> The Historian by Elizabeth Kostova
  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 --> The First Phone Call from Heaven by Mitch Albom
  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 --> Jungle Book by Rudyard Kipling
  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 --> The Fault in Our Stars by John Green
  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 --> To be define
  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! --> Me Before You by Jojo Moyes
  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! --> Matilda by Roald Dahl
