2015 Reading Challenge (Progress: 31/50)  
For Christmas, I got a Kindle (aka a e-reader) and it seems like, since it's easier to find room for it in my bag every morning than for an actual book, I read more books in 3 weeks than in the past three months. So I decided to to a reading challenge for 2015. I am not sure whether I'll be able to read all those different types of books, but I'll try. I want to read new things, things I've never tried before and I guess it's a good opportunity.


I'll be doing this Challenge that was shared on MadmoiZelle (a feminist French webzine that is really amazing) and I'll be updating this list every time I read a book that fit in one of the categories. Even though some of the books can fit in many categories, I choose to have a different book per category, the challenge is greater that way.

  • A book with more than 500 pages: Les 7 roses de Tokyo by Inoue Hisashi

  • A classic romance: La Dame aux camélias by Alexandre Dumas

  • A book that became a movie: I am Number Four by Pittacus Lore

  • A book published this year:

  • A book with a number in the title: The Power of Six by Pittacus Lore

  • A book written by someone under 30: Sales Jeunes by Galaad Moine (it's the book my friend wants to publish and it was really good *_* I seriously hope he'll find a publisher and I can't wait for him to write Volume 2)

  • A book with non-human characters: The Fall of Five by Pittacus Lore

  • A funny book:

  • A book by a femal author: Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows by JK Rowling

  • A mistery or thriller: Career of Evil by Robert Galbraith

  • A book with a one-word title: Crossed by Ally Condie

  • A book of short-stories:

  • A book set in a different country: The Rise of Nine by Pittacus Lore (I mainly read books written by English-speaking writers, this one is easy because books written in English are not often set in France)

  • A nonfiction book:

  • A popular author's first book: Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone by JK Rowling

  • A book from an author you love that you haven't read yet: A Place Called Freedom by Ken Follett

  • A book a friend recommended: The Book of Ivy by Amy Engel

  • A Pulitzer-price winning book:

  • A book based on a true story:

  • A book at the bottom of you to-read list: Anne of Avonlea by Lucy Maud Montgomerry

  • A book your mom loves: Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince by JK Rowling

  • A book that scares you:

  • A book more than 100 years old: Anne of the Island by Lucy Maud Montgomerry

  • A book based entirely on its cover: Blossoms and Shadows by Lian Hearn

  • A book you were supposed to read in school but didn't:

  • A memoir:

  • A book you can finish in a day: Les Malheurs de Sophie by La Comtesse de Ségur

  • A book with antonyms in the title:

  • A book set somewhere you've always wanted to visit: Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets by JK Rowling

  • A book that came out the year you were born:

  • A book with bad reviews:

  • A trilogy: Chaos Walking by Patrick Ness

  • A book from your childhood: Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban by JK Rowling

  • A book with a love triangle: Matched by Ally Condie

  • A book set in the future: Reached by Ally Condie

  • A book set in high-school:

  • A book with a color in the title:

  • A book that made you cry: Anne of Green Gables by L.M. Montgomery

  • A book with magic: Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix by JK Rowling

  • A graphic novel:

  • A book by an author you've never read before: The Handmaid's Tale by Margaret Atwood

  • A book you own but have never read:

  • A book that takes place in your hometown: La Reine Margot by Alexandre Dumas

  • A book that was originally written in another language: L'incolore Tsukuru Tazaki et ses années de pélerinage by Haruki Murakami

  • A book set during Christmas:

  • A book written by an author with your same initials:

  • A play:

  • A banned book: The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde

  • A book based on or turned into a TV show: The 100 by Kass Morgan

  • A book you started but never finished: Le Comte de Monte-Cristo by Alexandre Dumas

I'll do my best from now on then! What shall I treat myself with at the end of the year if I manage to finish it? Any idea?

Il me fait bien envie, ce challenge. Je ne lis quasiment plus, et encore, j'ai quelques volumes qui me sont passés sous les yeux ces derniers mois, et ce, grâce à une collègue, ou encore à mon ordinateur qui rame de plus en plus. J'ai privilégié mon énorme pile de mangas (pas finie du tout...) et surtout, l'arrivée de très nombreux simulcasts d'animes en France.
Je pense tenter de compléter au moins la moitié de la liste. Mais mes mangas à lire, les vidéos à voir (animes, dramas, films), les jeux videos à faire, et autres écritures sur le net me regardent déjà en traître. Mais au moins, je pourrais enfin lire des livres qui prennent la poussière depuis de trop nombreuses années.

Ca fait du bien de relire en plus \o/ Après la prépa, pendant mes années à Lille, j'ai peu lu et je redécouvert le goût de la lecture d'autres choses que des mangas en Chine et c'était vraiment super agréable *_* Du coup je lis dans les transports et c'est trop bien \o/

Lire c'est bien \o/ Je le fais probablement au dépend des butais et dramas, mais en soit c'est pas grave. J'ai autant de plaisir, voire plus :)

Courage !!! =D
