I have a VERY exciting post today because I’m going to be participating in my first reading challenge ever: The Reading Quest.
The challenge is an epic journey to conquer your TBR pile in a video game quest style. You can join a bunch of adventurers (readers) to choose characters, level up, and READ! Doesn’t it sound awesome!?!
The challenge is 4 weeks long held from:
Sunday, 13th August 2017
Sunday, 10th September 2017.
This fabulous challenge has been created by the genius that is Aentee @ Read at Midnight. All the wonderful graphics and illustrations for this challenge has been created by the talented CW @ Read, Think, Ponder.
It sounds super fun so you can sign up or learn more about the challenge HERE! Now if you want to know what books and quests I’m attempting to tackle on my TBR pile, read on!
There have been so many books I’ve been wanting to read, so this challenge seemed like a great way to decide what which books to start first, read a gargantuan amount of books, and have an extra jolly time reading.
I have chosen to attempt the quest for the Mage and if time permits, I’ll also try to do some Knight and side quests. So with this extremely ambitious TBR list in mind, these are the books I’m choosing for these quests:
The Mage’s Quest
1. The first book of a series
The Winner’s Curse by Marie Rutkoski
2. A book set in a different world
Siege and Storm by Leigh Bardugo
3. A book based on mythology
Blue Lily, Lily Blue by Maggie Stiefvater
4. A book that contains magic
The Raven King by Maggie Stiefvater
5. A book with a one word title
Cinder by Marissa Meyer
The Knight’s Quest
2. A book with a verb in its title
Ruin and Rising by Leigh Bardugo
3. A book with a weapon on its cover
The Knife of Never Letting Go by Patrick Ness
4. A book with a red cover
The Wrath and the Dawn by Reneé Ahdieh
5. A book that has a TV/movie adaptation
Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs
GRIND: A book with 500-pages
The Evolution of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin
EXPANSION: Read a companion novel or a short story

You still have time to gather a TBR list if you’re interesting in joining this reading challenge, so sign up and get ready to read!!!
You can even make your own character ID card.
(Doesn’t it look adorable!?!)
I’d love to know what book you’ll be reading. I’ll be updating my progress during the reading challenge. But for now, I’ll be pumping myself up!
