Hari ini saya menyanggupi satu reading challenge yang sekaligus bisa memenuhi challenge dari Goodreads. Sekali lagi challenge ini dipelopori oleh mba Astrid dengan blognya bernama Books to Share. Sebenarnya periode challenge ini sudah dimulai sejak Januari 2015 dan akan berakhir pada Januari 2016. Sesudah bertanya dengan si empunya challenge, walaupun sudah dipertengahan tahun seperti ini, saya tetap bisa ikut yang penting membaca 15 buku dalam satu tahun itu terpenuhi.

Tidak hanya itu, 15 buku yang dibaca merupakan buku pilihan dari kategori yang sudah diberikan oleh mba Astrid. Berikut ke-15 list buku tersebut langsung dikutip dari sumbernya (tanpa diterjemahkan terlebih dahulu).

  1. Chunky Brick: Grab that book with more than 500 pages that you’d always been afraid to tackle. You know you can do it!
  2. Something New: RUMAH COKELAT Just purchased a book lately? Don’t let it buried in your stacks, read it now!
  3. Something Borrowed: Read a book that you borrowed from someone else. Don’t make the owner waiting forever for you to finish it. (Books borrowed from friends, libraries, or even rental places, are allowed)
  4. It’s Been There Forever: Dig your TBR pile and read a book that has been there more than a year. It’s time for you to appreciate it 🙂
  5. 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 😀
  6. 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.
  7. Favorite Color: Pick a book from your shelf which has your favorite color for its cover! Is it pink, red or black? You decide.
  8. First Initial: Read a book that has been written by an author whose first initial is the same with you (Example: My name is Astrid, and I can read anything written by Agatha Christie, Aesop, Arthur Conan Doyle, etc)
  9. Super Series: Read one (or more!) books that belong in a series, it can be trilogy, or tetralogy, or anything.
  10. Opposites Attract: Read a book that’s been written by a writer whose gender is different from your own.
  11. Randomly Picked: Ask someone else (a friend, your spouse, even your kids!) to randomly pick a book from your TBR pile. Don’t complain whatever they choose for you, just read it 🙂
  12. Cover Lust: Grab a book from your shelf that you bought because you fell in love with the cover. Is the content as good as the cover?
  13. Who Are You Again?: You’ve never read a book from this author, maybe you haven’t even heard his/her name before. But who knows? Maybe he/she will become your new favorite author!
  14. One Word Only!: Read a book that only has one word for its title (number is allowed as long as it’s only consisted of one word, e.g: 1, 2, 11).
  15. Dream Destination: Read a book that has setting in a place you’ve never visited before – but would like to if you have a chance. Could be real places or even fictional!

Eh tapi ga hanya baca aja lowh, ada beberapa aturan yang harus dipenuhi. Berikut aturan-aturannya:

  1. Harus membaca (melalui media apapun) dan mereview 15 buku minimum berdasarkan kategori-kategori diatas. Intinya per kategori minimum satu buku.
  2. Master post tantangan ini harus dibuat di blog / goodreads / FB notes masing-masing peserta lalu linknya di submit melalui Mister Linky yang ada di blog nya mba Astrid. 
  3. Setiap review pun harus disubmit lewat Mister Linky di blognya mba Astrid dan disesuaikan dengan kategorinya masing-masing. Linknya akan terus di buka selama periode tantangan berlangsung.
  4. Saat akhir tantangan nanti harus buat wrap-up post dan disubmit ke Mister Linky yang ada di blognya mba Astrid. Link ini akan dibuka hingga tanggal 31 Januari 2016.

Postingan ini sekaligus menjadi master post milik saya, jadi setiap buku yang telah saya baca dan saya review akan saya update di masing-masing kategori diatas.

Kira-kira begitu isi tantangannya. Ada yang berminat juga? Yuk ikut dan daftarkan master post Lucky No. 15 Reading Challenge disini.
