Reading Challenges 2015: Lucky No.15

Having greatly enjoyed the Lucky no 14 challenge last year, hosted by Astrid over on Books to Share, imagine my surprise and delight upon discovering that she's going to be hosting a new challenge for 2015 - the Lucky no 15 Reading Challenge. Some of the categories are the same as last year, but there are new and fun looking ones as well. I especially like the look of the Randomly Chosen one, I suspect that could yield some interesting results.

This year's categories:
1) Chunky Brick - Grab that book with more than 500 pages that you've always been afraid to tackle. You know you can do it!

2) Something New - Just purchased a book lately? Don't let it be buried in your stacks, read it now!

3) Something Borrowed - Read a book you borrowed from someone else. Don't make the owner wait forever for you to finish it (Books borrowed from friends, libraries, even rental places are allowed)

4) It's Been There Forever - Dig into your TBR pile and read a book that has been there for more than a year. It's time for you to appreciate it.

5) Freebies Time - What's the LAST free book you got? Whether it's from a giveaway, a birthday gift or a surprise from someone special, don't hold back any longer. Open the book and start reading it now.

6) Bargain All the Way - Ever buy 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 if it's really worth your cents.

7) Favourite Colour - Pick a book from your shelf which has your favourite colour for its cover. Is it pink, red or black? You decide. (It's purple, actually)

8) First Initial - Read a book that has been written by an author whose first initial is the same as you (Example: My name is Malin, so I can read anything written by Melissa Marr, Maggie Stiefvater, Mike Carey, Mary Robinette Kowal, Meljean Brook etc.)

9) Super Series - Read one (or more!) books that belong in a series, it can be a duology, trilogy or anything.

10) Opposites Attract - Read a book that's been written by a writer whose gender is different from your own.

11) Randomly Picked - Ask someone else (a friend, your spouse, even your kids!) to randomly pick a book from your TBR pile. Don't complain, whatever they choose for you, just read it.

12) Cover Lust - Grab a book from your shelf that you bought because you fell in love with the cover. Is the content as good as the cover?

13) Who are You Again? - You've never read a book from this author, maybe you've never even heard his/her name before. But who knows? Maybe he/she will become your new favourite author!

14) One Word Only! - Read a book that only has one word for its title (numbers are allowed as long as it's still a one-word title, e.g: 1, 2, 11)

15) Dream Destination - Read a book that is set in a place you've never visited before - but would like to if you have a chance. Could be real places or even fictional!

To complete the challenge, you have to read at least one book for each category, so 15 books in total. The categories do not need to be read in any particular order. Any format is allowed (print, e-book, audio). You can of course read more than one book per category.
