Unfinished book
-Swiss: First Snow in Zurich by Alvi Syahrin // a lot of my friends recommend me this book but it just didn’t right on me.. I don’t know, the conflict is just..

I didn’t set any reading challenge for this year since I know I will not be able to read much (hey I’m just a high school junior I can’t buy books anytime I want because $$$) but I thought I’m gonna read more than last year, and I did! Not really setting a reading challenge, but I think I’m gonna read 30-ish books, and I did, too! I at first joined Receh Untuk Buku 2015, where you collect your small money/change the whole year to buy books in the end of the year but I gave up since regarding to what I just said earlier, every spare change I have is very useful to buy books (in general). There’s also this 2015 book challenge (you can search in on Google) that I meant to do but it’s only in my heart, I never declared it since I know I can’t done it. Me. 
I read kinda a lot in early 2015 but it didn’t stay for a long time, only until March then I have a 4 months in a row not reading anything, I know, I can’t believe it myself, especially it’s holiday season where I mostly stay at home. When school starts, I get to read some books, more books than those 4 months unwanted break because almost all of my new (girl) classmates loved reading, so we recommend and share books to read, hehe. November also being spent by reading nothing, maybe it’s because it’s been a pretty hectic month, I don’t know (I’ve forgotten already sigh). Overall I’m pretty satisfied with my reading this year, especially compared to last year. Soooo.... Au Revoir, 2015! Bonjour, 2016!
