Yes, I know this post is very late.. When other bloggers have already posted new challenges for 2015, I’m still doing my wrap-up post. Anyway…better late than never, right? Here we go!
Lucky No. 14 Reading Challenge:
Yes, this is the one that I hosted. I was so much fun to host this challenge and I hope everyone enjoyed it as much as I did. I didn’t read as many books as I planned to for this challenge, but at least I completed the challenge! (as a host, I think it will be to embarrassing if I don’t even finish it!!). Here’s my list:
2. Cover Lust: The Castle Corona (Sharon Leech)
3. Blame It On Bloggers: Memoirs of an Imaginary Friends (Matthew Green)
4. Bargain All The Way: Faith (Jennifer Haigh)
5. (Not So) Fresh From The Oven: Manuscript Found In Acra (Paulo Coelho)
6. First Letter’s Rule: Animal Farm (George Orwell)
8. Chunky Brick: Antony & Cleopatra (Colleen McCullough)
10. It’s Been There Forever: The Story of Edgar Sawtelle (David Wroblewski)
11. Movies vs Books: The Lord of The Rings (JRR Tokien)
12. Freebies Time: The Novelist (Dean Koontz)
14. Walking Down The Memory Lane: Are You There God? It’s Me, Margaret (Judy Blume)
For all participants of Lucky No. 14, thank you! Please stay tuned for the final announcement about prizes, sometime within next week 🙂
History Reading Challenge 2014 – a Sail to the Past
Sadly, even though I planned to read at least two books for this challenge, I actually only read one. But I enjoyed it so much, I don’t know that history (non-fiction) can be that fun. Thank you Fanda for hosting it!
What’s in a Name 2014
Hosted by the charming Charlie @ Wormhole, this challenge is one of my most faves every year! (I plan to join it again this year). And thankfully I can finish this one as well.
- A reference to time (Eleven Minutes, Before Ever After): 4.50 From Paddington (Agatha Christie)
- A position of royalty (The People’s Queen, The Last Empress, The Curse Of The Pharaoh): Empress Orchid (Anchee Min)
- A number written in letters (The Hundred Thousand Kingdoms, A Tale Of Two Cities): The One-Hundred-Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out of The Window and Disappeared (Jonas Jonasson)
- A forename or names (Rebecca, Eleanor & Park, The Unfinished Work Of Elizabeth D.): The Narrative of John Smith (Arthur Conan Doyle)
- A type or element of weather (Gone With The Wind, Red Earth Pouring Rain): Cloud Atlas (David Mitchell)
- A school subject: The Sunday Philosophy Club (Alexander McCall Smith)
I also had finished What’s In A Name Reading Challenge- hosted by Ren, that has ended on March 31. I read quite a lot of books too 🙂
And for Goodreads Reading Challenge, I succeeded to read 100 books, just like my target for 2014, although a bit harder compare to in 2013. I think this is maybe because I was more selective in 2014, and tried to read books that I really wanted to read since a long time ago, or books that I know will be good but was too lazy to read in the past.
So, overall, I’m proud of what I achieved in 2014 🙂
Now let’s get ready for 2015! Woo hoo!!!
