The Reading Quest Sign-Up

Posted August 2, 2017 / Book Challenges, Features / 12 Comments

Hosted by Read at Midnight | August 13th through September 10th | Info

I kept seeing the adorable graphics being teased for this readathon and had to sign up. Not gonna lie, I’m really not a gamer or anything. I just think these cute people are worth having on my blog and it seems like a really fun one. I had the hardest time deciding between the Knight and the Mage tracks on the board, based on my TBR I was thinking of for August. Anyways, here are some more details and some of my plans for it!

Reading Quest Board

Some Rules to Track

Experience Points

  • Pick a path and stay on it; complete the side quests in the middle for more EXP
  • Each character starts with +10EXP from the beginning
  • Books give you +10EXP, graphic novels give +5EXP, marginalized authors give +20EXP
  • Completing the quest before the challenge is over gives you +50EXP; complete another character’s quest on the board and get +30EXP
  • Characters level up with every +50EXP they earn

Health Points

  • Each character starts with +10HP from the beginning
  • Every 10 pages read give +1HP (graphic novels give +1HP for 20 pages)
  • Tweeting with #TheReadingQuest gives +1HP (maximum of +20HP allowed from social media)
  • Photos of books from the quest give +1HP (still max of +20HP for social media)

Probable TBR

I decided to (tentatively?) go with the Knight character for this quest. I think that path best describes what I might be reading in the next few months. If I manage to have time, I’ll definitely do the Mage path as well. Based on my path and the side quests, here are the tasks I should complete and the possible books I plan to read in order to achieve my goals. All of these books are totally up to be changed based on my mood; I just wanted to jot down some initial ideas at least.

The Cruel Prince (The Folk of the Air, #1) Twist (Loop, #2) The Fallen Kingdom (The Falconer, #3) Nasty Women American Gods

Knight’s path:

  • The first book of a series – The Cruel Prince
  • A book with a verb in its title – Twist
  • A book with a weapon on its cover – The Fallen Kingdom
  • A book with a red cover – Nasty Women
  • A book that has a TV/movie adaptation – American Gods

The Islanders Vol. 2 Uprooted The Unexpected Everything Free to Fall
Love & Gelato Gilded Ashes (Cruel Beauty Universe, #1.5) Fables, Vol. 5: The Mean Seasons The Lucky Dog Matchmaking Service

Side quests:

  • Potions: a book concocted by 2+ authors – Islanders Vol. 2
  • Multiplayer: buddy read a book – Uprooted (with Cyra)
  • Grind: a book with 500+ pages – The Unexpected Everything
  • Time warp: a book set in either the past or the future – Free to Fall
  • Open world: read whatever you want – TBD based on mood
  • Respawn: read a book you previously DNFed – Love & Gelato
  • Expansion: read a companion novel or short story – Gilded Ashes
  • Mini-game: read a graphic novel, novella, or poem collection – Fables Vol. 5
  • Animal companion: book referencing an animal in the title – The Lucky Dog Matchmaking Service

Tracking – Books and EXP

Coming throughout the readathon!

  1. Happy reading, Lauren! I’m going to be a Mage, but Knight was probably my second choice. I ended up giving Love & Gelato three stars, but I do get why you would DNF. It was cute, but not anything special.

  2. YES THE CRUEL PRINCE. My favorite book of the year- READ IMMEDIATELY<3!!!!! Good luck! I love this graphic too. I think I would go with the Bard!

  3. This Quest is just so cute! And it sounds like so much fun! I’ve never done a challenge like this before, even though I’ve seen them around. I definitely need to sign up! You’re TBR is filled with some amazing books! Good luck! Happy reading!
