So I’ve seen lots of people signing up on Twitter to do a month long readathon called The Reading Quest. It’s basically a fun video game style quest to conquer your TBR pile! Now that my dissertation is almost finished and I’m hoping to have lots more time to read, I thought this would be a fantastic way to kick things off. All the information is available on Aentee’s blog Read at Midnight. There is a point system involved, explained in the link there, which I will try and follow, but I’m mainly hoping to make a bit of a dent in my TBR over the next few weeks!
(Also all the beautiful graphics for this were done by CW of Read, Think and Ponder. They’re so stunning!)
These are the four different character class options, and sticking with the video game theme I’m going to go for the Mage option, because that’s what I usually pick for games.
So here are the books that I am going to try and tackle during this challenge. I’ve only chosen the books for the mage quests just now, if I manage to get any further I will add the others in later. This is the first reading challenge I’ve ever signed up to, so fingers crossed I don’t fall at the first hurdle!
1. A Book With A One Word Title: Carnivore – Jonathan Lyon
2. A Book That Contains Magic: Roar – Cora McCormack
3. A Book Based On Mythology: Norse Mythology – Neil Gaiman
4. A Book Set In A Different World: Everless – Sara Holland
5. The First Book In A Series: Red Queen – Victoria Aveyard
Some of these are books I’ve wanted to read for ages, and a few are from my current review pile. Will update as time goes on, but here goes!
