I Start to Read English Books

Assalamualaikum, dear readers.

Am i still have readers ?… Ha !

So yeah, I’ve been starting to read English book since last November. And i thought it’s like an improvement for myself, because I’ve never read English book before. I only read novel in Bahasa or the translated version. But recently, I want to know how the taste of reading foreign books, the original one. I believed reading books could be a great way to gain new vocabularies. I wanted to see and learn how the author use grammar in actions. And, I had an intention to develop my understanding of a language. Some people said learn English by reading it may feel like a slow process, but in my oppinion it would be effective.

Thus, from November until January i finished 3 books.

In November I had read The Secret Ingredient by Laura Scahefer. I chose this book because i want to read something easy and light, like warming up before you do exercise. That time I wish that I wouldn’t to be dizzy after read so many words in foreign language. Then, after I read through the pages and finished it in 2 weeks. I felt the utterly joy of reading. I would like to continue it. I made a target that I must to finish reading an English book (or more) in a month.

My very first English novel…

In December, I  borrowed The Fourteenth Goldfish by Jennifer L. Holm from my friend Miss Sabar Hernika (I wish you all can check her amazing blog HERE), and I accomplished it in 2 weeks. The story was talk about Ellie an eleven years old girl and his grandfather that obsessed to be a forever young. I like the story very much, and i thought to make a review in another post.

Thank you Miss Sabar Hernika for lent me this witty book.

In January, I completed Evil Encounter by Sonia Levitin. The story recounted about the surprising death of strange psychologist. I took a long time to completed it, about 3 weeks. Because I found so many new vocabularies and I have to open my online dictionary many times to know what it’s mean.

Currently, I’m reading the chapter one of Beautiful Disaster by Jamie McGuire. Maybe after I wrap it up, I want to start reading a classic book. By the way, would you like to give me a clue which books that worth to read for beginner, please ?.

    Patut dicoba nih untuk nambah vocabulary.

    Pernah dulu beli novel terjemahan, dan gak begitu ngerti karena ceritanya bikin bingung -_-. Alasan kenapa sampe sekarang masih suka baca novel Indonesia karena ceritanya gak ribet dan pernah dialami.

      Benar, banyak novel Indonesia yg bagus ceritanya ya dek. Tapi, kalo ingin belajar dan nambah vocab buku-buku berbahasa Inggris layak dibaca.
