Hello! If you haven’t heard of #TheReadingQuest, you can find all the info you need by clicking here!
In general terms (if you don’t want to click), it’s a reading challenge that lasts from August 13th to September 10th, and it’s video game themed! Right up my alley right? When I heard of it, I knew I had to participate! There are four class paths to take: Knight, Bard, Mage, and Rogue. For this challenge, I have chosen the Knight path. (This lovely art was created by ReadThinkPonder)
Each ‘player’ starts out at Level 1, with 10 Exp and 10 HP. Level ups happen every 50 Exp acquired. Every book completed regardless of format gives you 10 Exp, unless it was by an #ownvoices author which gains you 20 Exp. Another exception is a graphic novel or manga, which only gives you 5 Exp. If you complete your path before Sept. 10th, you automatically get 50 Exp, and 30 for every additional completed path.
Health points add up as follows: You get +1 HP for every 10 pages read, or +1 HP for every 20 minutes of an audiobook. Graphic novels/manga are +1 every 20 pages. Tweeting relevant tweets under the hashtag give +1 HP each, up to 20 max. Photos of quest books or your challenge TBR are +1 HP and count towards the social media 20 HP max.
There’s a prize at the end for whoever gains the most Exp and HP, which I already know won’t be me lol. I’m just doing this for fun and to push myself to read regularly again!
So without further ado, here’s my TBR!
First Book of Series: Nobody’s Princess by Esther Friesner
A Book with a Verb in its Title: Deaf Child Crossing by Marlee Matlin (an #ownvoices author)
A Book with a Weapon on its Cover: Ever The Hunted by Erin Summerill (there’s a bow and arrow)
A Book with a Red Cover: I Am The Messenger by Markus Zusak (Been meaning to read it for the longest time)
A Book that has a TV/Movie Adaptation: The Hobbit by J.R.R Tolkien (never read, but just re-watched those movies a few weeks ago)
Hope that might have piqued your interest to join in on the fun. Happy Reading!
