For the first time of my life, I would like to challenge myself with this Reading Challenge. I love book, yes. But I haven’t challenged myself to read with any categories or anything. So, now I am trying to join Reading Challenge of Kak Astrid. Wish me luck! Hope I can force myself to work hard on this reading challenge! Lol.
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.

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?
