Meillenge: Lucky No.14 Reading Challenge

What is Meillenge? I always have that special-tag, so reading challenge tag, or reader challenge, or any other challenges tagged as Meillenge. Mei is how my family call me and llenge of course...challenge. As an extrovert, I'm really competitive. Let's see what I can do with this Reading Challenge *\^O^/*

Meillenge this time, I'm joiningLucky No.14 Reading Challenge hosted by Books to Share :3 I think the categories are really fun and, why not?
So here are the categories I have to read :D (at least one book/cat):
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.
Hmm...UK, China, Korea, USA. Those places I really want to continue my study

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?
Raindrops, Fangirl, Eleanor&Park? There are a lot of them <3
3. Blame it on Bloggers: Read a book because you’ve read the sparkling reviews from other bloggers. Don’t forget to mention the blogger’s names too!
The Fault in Our Stars by John Green. I read it from TheBookieLooker and I see it a LOT on intsagram. Really want to read it >,<
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.
There is none so far. Never get that cheap thingy
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.
Not mine, but it has been in my bookshelf for like 2/3 months so far. I always finish a book before switching to another. So there are no such thing as keeping books unread :))
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 :)
I'm Agnes. A book started with A? Allegiant. Really want to read it!
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)
On my bookshelf, Secret Garden :)
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 Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flamel. Whooo...even the first book has 504pages!

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.
Truth or Dare by Winna Efendi. I like her writing style sooo much. But I just don't have the chance to read this one.
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 :)'
High School Musical 2 has been on my bookshelf for like 5/6 years and I haven't read it. Well, I will tell you the story behind why is it in my review soon :p
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.

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 :D
Tbh, my mom buys books for me. I never really buy them myself. Is it count as freebies? Keke. Well, maybe soon I'll get my real freebies :D
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!
I don't really like non fiction. But I never read one nor have one. Maybe Kuark? I hate science comic but I bought them years ago. Hmm,maybe classic. I never read them and I think they're not my-cup-of-tea. So...Nobody's Boy would be great
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!
I don't know, I really don't /sigh/. I hate reading back then. Maybe princess stories fit me well that time. 

Hopefully I can complete this challenge :3
ps: I think 14 is really lucky number. I like 7, and 7*2=14. So 14 is good (?) hahaha
