52 Week Reading Challenge 2016

Finishing at least one book each week of the year will fulfill this annual challenge. You may start reading a new book any time but only the one you finished counts.

Here is a list of books that I finished reading each week of 2016, to be updated every Thursday. Also, this is a leap year so you have 1 extra day to complete your book challenge. 😉

What are you currently reading? Leave a comment to share with us.

Have a hard time decide completing the challenge? See some guidance here.


Week 1 (Jan 7)

(1) The Wright Brothers by David McCullough
Rating: ∗∗∗∗∗/5 — A great book to start the new year. Inspirational and brought to light the hard-working and high morality spirit of the Wright Brothers. They are truly the inventors of human wings.

Week 2 (Jan 14)

(2) Đừng Nói Với Tôi Anh Ấy Vẫn Còn Yêu by Lục Xu
Đánh giá: ∗*/5 — Ngắn và không sâu sắc lắm. Những tình tiết miêu tả tình cảm học trò cũng như thời đại học hay sau đại học giữa không đặc sắc lắm.

(3) The Grownup by Gillian Flynn
Rating: ∗∗*/5 — I was not very surprised by the ending. The “book” is too short to be considered a real book, more like a short story.

(4) And Then There Was None by Agatha Christie
Rating: ∗∗∗∗/5 — This is actually my first Agatha Christie. No doubt she’s one of the best. This feels like a foundation for Detective Kindaichi series. 

(5) Please Look After Mom (Hãy Chăm Sóc Mẹ) by Shin Kyung-Shook
Rating: ∗∗∗*/5 — Perhaps things are lost in translation, or the hype around this book is too much. It was good, but not to the point of moving me to tears or anything.

(6) In a Dark, Dark Wood by Ruth Ware
Rating: ∗∗∗/5 — Light thriller with a perfectionist psychopath. Feel like reading another “The Girl on the Train” because the voice in the book is so similar to Paula Hawkin. Is it because they are both British?

Week 3 (Jan 21)

(7) Fates and Furies by Lauren Groff
Rating: ∗∗∗∗*/5 — I debated whether or not I like this book. While I didn’t like the characters, the writing is so engrossing that I feel like I need to know more about these boring characters and their seemingly “normal” marriage.

(8) Rosemary: The Hidden Kennedy Daughter by Kate Clifford Larson
Rating: ∗∗*/5 — Although the book is informative, the story of Rosemary is touching, the writing itself was not impressive. Most information could be found on wikipedia or articles online. I don’t feel like I’ve learned anything new.

Week 4 (Jan 28)

(9) Murder on the Orient Express by Agatha Christie
Rating: ∗∗∗*/5 — A classic novel with traditional investigation using deduction. It does feel like a classic, although the story with so many suspects is hard to follow.

(10) Casanova by Ian Kelly
Rating: ∗∗∗*/5 — Interesting short “read”, performed by Benedict Cumberbatch. I could see why Casanova is still the talk of the town when it comes to the art of seduction. 

(11) A Monster Calls by Patrick Ness
Rating: ∗∗∗∗∗/5 — A powerful and touching story with a valuable lesson. Thought provoking yet not pretentious nor overly trite and hollow like The Alchemist.

(12) Luckiest Girl Alive by Jessica Knoll
Rating: ∗∗/5 — The characters were pretentious and annoying, the story was neither thrilling nor shocking. I’ve read it merely to see how a native Philly describes the Main Line area but all I got out of it was uncountable occasions Knoll had to mention about pizza and pizza toppings.

(13) When Breath Becomes Air by Paul Kalanithi
Rating: ∗∗∗∗∗/5 — This book feels so genuine and unlike any other cancer book I’ve read: It’s from the perspective of a neurosurgeon now dying in the ward in a hospital just feet away from where he used to work. It does not offer a glimpse of hope or any false pretense of dying; it’s all about acceptance. Paul’s stunning writing, on top of insights his medical knowledge, makes the book even more edifying. 

Week 5 (Feb 4)

(14) A Little Life by Hanya Yanagihara
Rating: ∗∗∗∗/5 — No body can deny that this book is so long. But I think it’s worth a reading. It was so depressing for the most parts, but I found myself keep reading. The characters, although I feel that their stories are not realistic, are relatable and by the end of the book, I feel like they were friends that I’ve known for a long time.

(15) The Crossing (Bosch #20) by Michael Connelly
Rating: ∗∗∗/5  My first Bosch novel. It was good. I follow along and was intrigued to find out what happened next, but it seems to try involve so many “coincidental” current events of good cops bad cops.

(16) My Grandmother Asked Me to Tell You She’s Sorry by Fredrik Backman
Rating: ∗∗∗/5 — This book has some good moments, but at time it feels like it’s dragging on. After grandma died the story isn’t as funny as in the beginning. It feels a lot like A Hundred Year Old Man Jumped Out of the Window and Disappeared. Maybe I just don’t get the Sweden humor but I didn’t dislike it. But I think you need to read Harry Potter and Spiderman as prerequisites of this book. 

Week 6 (Feb 11)

(17) The Rest of Us Just Live Here by Patrick Ness
Rating: ∗∗∗/5 — I feel like I wanted to read more about the dead kids, the indie kids… than the kids that are being talked about in the book. 

(18) The Widow by Fiona Barton
Rating: ∗∗∗∗/5 — it’s a baby girl missing this time, and it doesn’t follow the traditional story telling from one angle. at time it’s annoying to keep jumping back and forth between timeline and from perspective to perspective. definitely keeps me reading but without a nice plot twist or surprising ending it could only make a 4-star.

(19) Orphan X by Gregg Hurwitz
Rating: ∗∗*/5 — I must have been reading a different book to the other 5-star reviewer. Although there were some exciting fighting scenes, the overall plot was too basic to be impressive. It seems like you’ve heard the story somewhere before. At times, I wonder if I’m reading advertisement for (Verizon?) LTE network, iPhone, and kombucha tea.

(20) My Name is Lucy Barton by Elizabeth Strout
Rating: ∗∗*/5 — This genre of monologue must not be for me. There are things said and described in the book about the mother and daughter relationship are touching for me to read, but most other time, I feel annoyed… mostly because of the tone of the narrator: Lucy Barton is no ordinary woman, she’s obnoxious. 

(21) Slade House by David Mitchell
Rating: ∗∗∗∗/5 — A short book, but the story is so strange, and the story telling is engrossing. Now I really need to read The Bone Clock and Cloud Atlas.

Week 7 (Feb 18)

(22) The Vegetarian by Han Kang
Rating: ∗∗∗/5  I struggle to finish this book… it’s so dark and depressing, trying to deal with sexuality, asexuality, inner thoughts and deepest desires, all intertwined with scarred childhood. The language is too graphic to be enjoyable yet not enough to provoke to thoughts. The concept of the story is very new.  I like its weirdness but I couldn’t stop wondering about some medical details such as injecting through carotid artery to stop gastric bleeding!?!

(23) The Sword of Summer (Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard #1) by Rick Riordan
Rating: ∗∗∗∗∗/5 — Woo hoo! I love this book. I didn’t enjoy Kane Chronicle as much as the Percy Jackson series I thought Rick has lost his touch. But this book is awesome. It is hilarious, quick pace with good (lame but I like it) puns and word plays. Can’t wait for the next book!

(24) The Guest Room by Chris Bohjalian
Rating: ∗∗∗∗/5 — A creepy thriller with interesting story line. Although the characters weren’t very well developed, they were likeable (or at least reasonable) the ending was satisfying. It could use some more actions and confrontation.

Week 8 (Feb 25)

(25) Speaker of the Dead by J. Aaron Sanders
Rating: ∗∗∗∗∗/5 — Sanders blended history and fiction very well in this short mystery novel about one of the greatest American poets Walt Whitman. His views about sexuality, deism and social observation were well captured. 

(26) The Heart by Maylis de Kerangal
Rating: ∗∗∗∗∗/5 — A story that was written like heartbeats, continuous and rhythmic. It captures every action and emotion by every character during the course of a heart transplant procedure. Please don’t take the eyes!

(27) The Gun by Fuminori Nakamura
Rating: ∗∗∗*/5 — I’ve always thought about university times as one of the most interesting time, but only Fuminori Nakamura can bring out the dullness of those indifferent youthful days. He will use the gun or he will not, there isn’t an element of surprise in this book, but I enjoy the psychological description of the making of a sociopath.

(28) Bird Box by Josh Malerman
Rating: ∗∗∗∗/5 — Not many books can manage to be creepy and yet not bloody with body parts everywhere. I can’t imagine living in a world where you no longer able to open your eyes…  

(29) Death Comes to Pemberley by P.D. James
Rating: ∗/5 — The beloved characters of Jane Austen are “so altered that he should not have known her again”… It is as if Darcy and Elizabeth have grown distant over the course of the years, only to be put back together in the Epilogue. And the crime, oh ghastly! 

Week 9 (Mar 3)

(30) Red Rising by Pierce Brown
Rating: ∗∗∗∗/5 — Not sure if I like it or not. The story is interesting but perhaps the audible narration is too old for a 16-yo which distracted me from the story.

(31) Mưu Sát by Dị Thanh Nhân
Rating: ∗∗*/5 — Truyện hơi lung tung, vừa muốn là truyện ma lại vừa muốn là trinh thám, đọc khó mà tập trung vào một cốt truyện. Cả câu chuyện không có lấy một nhân vật chính diện, hầu như nhân vật nào xuất hiện thì cũng hơi biến thái. >.>

(32) A Midsummer’s Equation by Keigo Higashino
Rating: ∗∗∗∗∗/5 — This story has a lot more “science” narration than others in the Galileo series. I enjoyed Keigo Higashino bringing the environment and the beauty of nature to become part of the nature. The ending is also satisfying.

(33) Keeper of Lost Causes (Department Q #1) by Jussi Adler-Olsen
Rating: ∗∗∗∗/5 — I enjoyed the chemistry between detective Carl and his driver Assad. The story is so dark (about what happened to the victim), it creeps me out a little bit.

Week 10 (Mar 10)

(34) Name of the Rose by Umberto Eco
Rating: ∗∗∗∗/5 — Excellent story telling, but only 4-star because it is so long-winded. I enjoy side story that teaches philosophy, religion or symbolism but not when it doesn’t conclude anything related to the main story. 

(35) Jane Austen in Scarsdale: on Love, Death and the SATs by Paula Marantz Cohen
Rating: ∗∗/5 — Seriously, there are probably a total of 20 pages out of this 270-page book that talk about Anne and Ben, the rest are about the SAT, very little about Love and Death. Disappointed!

(36) Captain Wentworth’s Diary by Amanda Grange (re-read)
Rating: ∗∗∗∗/5 — I don’t exactly love this book but it’s the best (maybe the only?) Persuasion adaptation told from the point of view of Captain Wentworth (who I love!) so naturally I re-read it when the mood is calling for it.

(36) Istanbul Passage by Joseph Kanon
Rating: ∗∗/5 — The choppy writing and the amateurish spy makes this book very boring to read. In the end, it feels like nothing has happened at all, back to square one minus a few uninteresting dead bodies. 

(37) Hot Milk by Deborah Levy
Rating: ∗∗∗∗/5 — A dream-like novel about a mother and daughter, a much better version of My Name is Lucy Barton.

(38) The Lost Diary of Don Juan (Nhật Ký Thất Lạc Của Don Juan) by Douglas Carlton Abrams
Rating: ∗∗∗*/5 — I tried to be non-prejudice against this womanizer but can’t help feeling the book is a little cheap with all the ravishing intercourse scenes. I think he deserved what he got. 

Week 11 (Mar 17)

(39) Think of a Number (Dave Gurney #1, Hãy Nghĩ Đến Một Con Số) by John Verdon
Rating: ∗∗∗∗/5 — Really enjoy this book and the number mystery, although I feel that Madeleine is more of the star investigator than Dave. 

(40) The Ice Twins by S.K. Treymane
Rating: ∗∗/5 — The main disturbed character annoyed me to no end with her “psychological” problem and inability to distinguish which of her twins had died. Seriously? Is there any mother like that existed?

Week 12 (Mar 24)

(41) Keep Me Posted by Lisa Beazley
Rating: ∗∗∗/5 — Love the first half but failed to be interested in the second half. The letters between the sisters were heartwarming and genuine but once the letters hit the internet, the personality of the main narrator seems to change for the worst then kaboom, a happy fairy-tale ending! 

(42) Girl Waits with Gun by Amy Stewart
Rating: ∗∗∗∗∗/5
— Love this book about the Kopp sisters! When someone threaten you, you don’t sit around and wait for it to pass, even if you’re a woman. This is what all women should aspire to be!

(43) The Ex by Alafair Burke
Rating: ∗∗∗*/5 — A quick read and likable attorney Olivia but the story is very simple, although i was surprised about the ending twist. I anticipated the killer but she took a full circle to get back to it. I like Burke’s writing, easy to read and good pace.

Week 13 (Mar 31)

(44) Shadow Magic by Joshua Khan 
Rating:∗∗∗∗/5 — A really fun and quick read. Two children, one searching for his dad one searching for her family killer, came together to defeat the dark power that is about to fall upon their land. I enjoy some humor throughout the book as well as explanation of the world of Six Princes and the element of each power. I wish the talent of Lily Shadow develops more though, it would make her a much stronger character. Thorn was perfect! I really like him, his quirk reminded me of Percy Jackson.

(45) I’ll Give You the Sun by Jandy Nelson
Rating: ∗∗*/5 — A story of loss and found, told by a pair of artistic twins. Read it (almost) twice and still bored out of my mind from the metaphoric writing. 

(46) In Cold Blood by Truman Capote
Rating: ∗∗∗∗∗/5  An impressive read. Truman’s voice is very original: he told a story of murders, including the lives of the victims, the neighbors and the killers, but managed to remain neutral (at least I felt that way) 

Week 14 (Apr 7)

(47) The Nest by Cynthia D’Aprix Sweeney
Rating: ∗∗∗/5  Can’t say I was impressed with the story after all the hypes. In addition, the story was about rich people’s problem, which I didn’t care much for. Glad the ending was what they deserved, sorta.

(48) Cha Con Ông Mắt Mèo by Nguyễn Thái Hải
Rating: ∗∗∗∗∗/5 — Truyện cũ đọc một lần lúc bé giờ đọc lại vẫn thấy xúc động. Không dùng ngôn ngữ quá màu mè, câu chuyện của Út Đen và ông Mắt Mèo để lại một sự lạc quan trong người đọc. Nhiều khi ước mơ nhỏ nhoi của trẻ con chỉ là được đi học và sống hạnh phúc bên ba mẹ, được yêu thương. Nhân vật trong truyện từ ông Mắt Mèo, đến Út Đen, đến cả ông Lý hàng xóm và cả mấy cô chú bác sĩ trên bệnh viện cũng vô cùng thân thiện, những thứ tình người thời nay kiếm không có.

Week 15 (Apr 14)

(49) The Passage by Justin Cronin
Rating: ∗∗∗*/5 — 
For such a long book, I found it lacking in interesting details. The beginning (the story of Wolgast) and toward the ending (when they begin to travel to Colorado) is engrossing but most of the middle of the book I feel like fasting forward. The writing feels like reading a Stephen King novel, perhaps because Cronin likes to describe the characters, and their thoughts, but again, sometimes it feel long-winded when the story does not develop very much.

Week 16 (Apr 21)

(50) Annihilation (Area X #1) by Jeff VanderMeer
Rating: ∗∗∗∗/5  Creepy and entertaining of a post apocalypse world. The environment is deadly with unknown toxic. There isn’t much scifi here but enough dooms to give me a chill.

Week 17 (Apr 28)

(51) The Good Girl by Mary Kubica
Rating: ∗∗∗∗/5  I really enjoyed this book. Although the story is not very believable, the narrative of Eve, Colin and Gabe sound very genuine. There isn’t much of a surprise element… everything is laid out in the very first chapter, even though there is a slight twist at the end. The writing is lean, the book is of the right length. The Good Girl is a good read.

(52) I Am the Messenger by Markus Zusak
Rating: ∗∗∗/5 — started out funny but went flat… the ending feels like a kid trying to ask her parents “why?” and the only response is “because I said so”. there’re good moments that I like such as Marv’s story but other than that it feels repetative. The message is clear but I’m not sure we need 400 pages of story telling to co clude that.

(53) Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard  (Red Queen #1)
Rating: ∗∗/5 — Boring. Can we please not re-use the color scheme like Red Rising? (Or maybe it was from Alice in Wonderland?) The main character was so annoying I don’t even care for her problems…

(54) When Breath Becomes Air by Paul Kalithini (re-read)

Week 18 (May 5)

(55) North and South by Elizabeth Gaskell
Rating: ∗∗∗∗∗/5 — Really enjoyed the story. Light romance with some good industrial side story. The writing does not feel as if it was from 1855, an easy to read classic!

(56) Animal Farm (Chuyện Ở Nông Trại, Trại Súc Vật) by George Orwell (re-read)
Rating: ∗∗∗∗∗/5 — A classic worth reading again, especially with current situation in Vietnam.

Week 19 (May 12)

(57) Hamlet, Prince of Denmark: A Novel by A.J. Hartley and David Hewson, narrated by Richard Armitage
Rating: ∗∗∗∗∗/5 — Richard Armitage is such an amazing voice actor. He really did make this book a whole lot more interesting to read. I had hoped the book carried a little more Shakespeare poetic tone but it is unique in its modern writing. I feel as though I think differently for each character compared to the first time I learned about Hamlet. Not sure if I missed it, but there is no “to be or not to be” quoted in this new version.

(58) Holes by Louis Sachar
Rating: ∗∗∗∗/5  — Typical children book with magical ending, maybe I’m too old to feel surprised of the outcome but I still enjoyed it very much.

Week 20 (May 19)

(59) Your Inner Fish (Tất Cả Chúng Ta Đều Là Cá) by Neil Shubin
Rating: ∗∗∗∗/5 — I don’t feel impressed with the conclusion, could be because if you have read Darwin and Dawkins, the connection is rather obvious, could also be because the writing is more for layman and not someone that is more knowledgeable of the topic (not that I’m knowledgeable about evolution, but I was hoping to learn more). Regardless, I enjoyed different stories about how they come about their findings and some new vocabularies. 

Week 21 (May 26)

(60) Sylvester by Georgette Heyer
Rating: ∗∗∗∗/5 — First time Georgette Heyer. A cute and witty romance. I could see where Julia Quinn learned some of her Lady Whistledown writing skill from.

(61) Venetia by Georgette Heyer
Rating: ∗∗*/5 — Kind of boring. I like the writing, but I could not get into the story, so much telling without actions.

Week 22 (JUN 2)

(62) Eligible: A Modern Retelling of Pride & Prejudice by Cutis Sittenfeld
Rating: ∗∗/5 — Is this supposed to be funny or to show how annoying Pride & Prejudice actually was? Have I completely mis-read the book because I couldn’t stand the book (but finished anyway out of curiosity). If it was a parody, I prefer Pride & Prejudice & Zombie. This version of P&P is not suitable in modern setting. Curtis Sittenfeld used impressive vocabulary and smooth writing, I will give her that. But the story and the characters are abhorable. Darcy was right: Liz is such a gossiper. On top of that, her prejudices are unfounded and more like she held grudges and found every opportunity to mock Darcy (or anyone that dared to cross her path). One positive thing, I do like Mary, Lydia & Kitty… they’re a disgrace but at least they’re honest and not fake like Liz. 

(63) You by Caroline Kepnes (You #1)
Rating: ∗∗∗∗∗/5 — Amazing! Enthralling! I’m hooked from the very first chapter. It’s a simple story about a bookseller, with a side job as a girl stalker. Very unique narrative technique: Creepy, calm and bursting with emotions, screaming and soothing you all at the same time. A must read. 

Week 23 (Jun 9)

(64) Hidden Bodies by Caroline Kepnes (You #2)
Rating: ∗∗∗∗/5 — The first half of the book is quite tiring with all the sexes and stuff. Joe is still very cynical and sick to the heart but it didn’t keep me interested. The second half begins to get better and so much twist and turn and the end! Really enjoyed it.

Week 24 (Jun 16)

(65) Maestra by L.S Hilton
Rating: ∗∗∗/5 — I have mix feelings about this book. Sometimes I admire Judith for her uninhibited sexuality and her boldness to admit it. I do enjoy her image as a femme fatale, but I can’t help feeling it was a little cheaply done. Mainly because her transition from a meek receptionist into an indifferent killer was unbelievable for me. By the end of the story, almost a year has passed but it seems like she was moving rather quickly from places to places so the changes in her character seem abrupt. The writing is not by any mean impressive. I wish it was a bit more about arts, and showing off more of her knowledge about arts and cultures.

Week 25 (Jun 23)

(66) The Gene: An Intimate History by Siddhartha Mukherjee
Rating: ∗∗∗∗/5 — I feel like I should give the book more star rating just because of the vast knowledge it provided. I learned so much from this one book about evolution theories and evidences, how gene researches have help us understand differences among ourselves,yet I was surprised to learn that we are not that advance in gene therapy, ie we’re no where near the horizon of using gene to cure any diseases due to limited trials resulted from multiple ethical issues associated with gene research. I wish the ending of the book gear toward types of on-going researches and how to overcome some of the obstacles. Come on now, we can’t really let China surpass us in the field where we’re world leader!

Rating: ∗∗∗∗∗/5

Week 52 (Dec 29)

(84) Thánh Giá Rỗng by Keigo Higashino
Rating: ∗∗∗∗/5

ALL DONE! This year I’ve read a total of  84 books (out of 100 reading challenge I set for myself on Goodreads). But this year also has been a wonderfully busy year, so I would consider it a good reading year. Most impressive this year for me would be When Breath Becomes Air by Paul Kalathini and The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks by Rebecca Kloot, both are non-fiction. For fiction I have to say it’s Điều Kỳ Diệu Của Tiệm Tạp Hóa Namiya by Keigo Higashino and You by Caroline Kepnes. One classic book that should be a honorary mention is I am a Cat (Tôi Là Con Mèo) by Natsume Soseki. I’m almost done reading this book, however, I was given spoiler by my friend so I don’t know if I will ever get to the last chapter. But this book would be a must read for Japanese literature lover, it is funny yet so bitterly true. Time to set a goal for next year, perhaps it should be to read all the books I hoarded on my bookshelf!   :O
