#TheReadingQuest

Read at Midnight has created an amazing online readathon challenge this year. #TheReadingQuest combines reading with a game. You choose a character, books that fit their reading challenge path and keep track of your points. You earn 10 points each time you finish a book, 5 points for graphic novels and 50 points for finishing your chosen quest before the time ends. You can also do side challenges if you want a break from your chosen path or if you want bonus points. Click here for more information.

I have chosen to do the Mage quest because it fits my reading preferences and I was able to easily find a book for each challenge.

Challenge #1: The First Book of a Series

I chose City of Bones by Cassandra Clare because I am currently reading it (oops if that is cheating) and to be quite honest, I am struggling to finish it so I am hoping that this challenge will push me through it.

Challenge #2: A Book Set in a Different World

I chose A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas because:

  1. I have been dying to read it.
  2. I bought it last month.
  3. I once borrowed it from my local library and read one chapter – I loved it and was so intrigued by it!

Challenge #3: A Book Based on Mythology

I chose Percy Jackson and The Olympians by Rick Riordan because I haven’t read it before but loved the movie and my brother got the series two years ago. Yay for having free access to a whole series!

Challenge #4: A Book That Contains Magic

I chose Harry Potter and The Goblet of Fire by THE J.K. Rowling. Shocker! I have been wanting to continue this amazing series for months and I think that I am going to finally make the time for it. So excited! #GryffindorPride

Challenge #5: A Book With a One Word Title

I chose Illuminae from The Illuminae Files by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff. I have been really intrigued by this trilogy for a couple of years now so I finally gave in and bought the first book this summer. I am super excited for it as I love the thought of a story being mixed with documents.

I highly recommend signing up for this challenge as it sounds like a lot of fun and a great readathon. However, sign up does end today so join while you can!

Summer 17′ TBR

Summer TBR

Having just finished my first year of university and having five months of summer, I thought that it would be a good time to add another thing to my blog: TBR’s (to-be-read). Although this may seem like a small selection for such a large amount of time, I have already had a week off and barely read more than 100 pages so I wanted to be reasonable. I blame Law and Order SVU – it is an addiction! Each of these books are fairly new to my shelf and are quite large. If I quickly get through these five, I will add a Part 2. I am hoping to continue these TBR posts next year, perhaps as monthly updates.
