[MASTERPOST] 2015 Reading Challenge – KPB (Book Hoarders Community)

Good day! It’s been long since the last time I really posted in here, eh? Why? Why I was missing? Well, to be honest lately I’m more a reader than a writer lately. I spent most of the times not to write anymore… but to read. Though, I really wish to write once in awhile as well. So to start the ‘real post’ again, I’m going to tell about my 2015 Reading Challenge.

It was quite late, I know- I mean, I’ve joined the challenge since February 2015 effectively (I didn’t read or follow the challenge in January 2015) and just posted it here now; March 2015. But well, better late than nothing; isn’t it? Anyway, as I realized that I have added books and books and books and books again to the stack, I know now that I have to really start reading and complete all the books there. Because as I counted, I have like- 70 books that I haven’t read there? Like- seriously? O_O And so here I am, trying to finish those by joining the challenge.

This 2015 Reading Challenge was made by… someone (Well of course- duh!) and was posted at my reading group. The idea is to follow the clues and read at least four book each months in a year (which means… erm, I’ll read around 48 book in a year approximately). Sounds good enough, though not sure that I’ll be able doing it and I might skip some of the books that I don’t have. But *shrugs* worth to try, right?

So here’s the list- grouped by months and the books I read according to it (which I’m going to update once in awhile once I’ve finished the book). Currently most of the review was written in Bahasa (Indonesian) at my goodreads (links will be added later), but I’ll try to post the English version little by little here as well (expect, I think, the local books).
