#TheReadingQuest Sign-Up Post and TBR

Hello fellow book lovers.

I recently decided that I will join another reading challenge, I loved Booktube-a-thon with every cell I have and I want to be able to keep as connected to the book community as possible.

This reading challenge is called #TheReadingQuest, it takes place between August 13th and September 10th and it is based on a bingo board, the path you take on the bingo board is entirely depent on your choosen Character Class. I am certainly not the qualified enough to talk about this game so check out the post about this in the author’s blog: @readatmidnight.

Also I would love to give an aplause to CW of Read, Think, Ponder‘s beautiful artwork, you should definetly go give her some love on her blog.

If you want to join #TheReadingQuest you must follow what this post says, the sign up form is only open until August 13th.

I decided to choose The Mage’s path because that is my kind of read and it completly is what I am in the mood for. As the game says: As wielders of spells and witchcraft, these players will conjure and summon their way through the First Down path on the quest. Their tomes contain magic and whispers of alternate lands. So, I’ll be playing as a Mage.

As I am really bad in this photo editing thing, this is what my character ID card looks like, please don’t mind the fact that it has very different fonts than what it was supposed to. 😁😁

As I said before, my character is going to take the first path down on the quest, I believe you can see it if you look for it in the board, it starts with “A book with a one word title” and it ends in “The first book of a series”, my path is connected by the yellow dots.

Booktube-A-Thon TBR

Hi fellow booklovers.

I’ve been planning this reading challenge for a while and after many days of indecision, I think I have built my TBR for this year’s Booktube-a-thon.

If you never heard of Booktube-a-thon before it is a reading challenge where people come together to read as many books as they can in one week. During this week they host challenges, giveaways and competitions and many people join booktube-a-thon such as famous booktubers and even authors. This reading challenge was created by Ariel Bisset and you can find more information in the booktube-a-thon youtube channel and website.

Personally, I don’t own a youtube channel, I guess I’m too shy for that, but I want to participate anyways so I’m going to join it. I won’t be reading the book that Ariel picked because it is not published in my language and I can’t find it anywhere.

Here’s my TBR:

1. Read a book with a person on the cover: 

For this one I’m choosing The Dream Thieves by Maggie Stiefvater, I really enjoyed The Raven Boys but I can’t get attached to the second book in the series for some reason. Since it is booktube-a-thon, I decided I’m going to push through and try to read this book, because I bet that this series is amazing.

2. Read a hyped book:

I am finally giving up and I’ll reading City Of Bones by Cassandra Clare, and I want to read this for 3 reasons: Sebastian Morgenstern (and I got a huge spoiler about him on pinterest just now), I want to read The Infernal Devices and I want to read The Dark Artificies.

3. Finish a book in one day:

Random Illustrated Facts  by Mike Lowery was a illustrated book sent to me by Net Galley so I could review it, I’m actually having a bit of a problem with downloading it but I believe this is the one I’m going to read in one day. Besides it must be short and fast paced so I’m really looking forward to reading it.

 

4. Read about a character that is very different from you:

For this, I’m going to choose The Titan’s Curse by Rick Riordan. Do I need to explain why me and Percy are so different? I mean he fights monsters and gods and I’m on my couch practically all day.

5. Finish a book completly outdoors:

I hope to get this over as soon as possible because out there is worst than the dessert during the day, I think I’ll burn to death if I step outside, so I’ll be reading The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupery (I hope I got that name right). I saw a cartoon when I was a kid about the adventures of the little prince and I believe I’ll really enjoy it.

 

6. Read  a book you bought because of the cover:

10600242

 

 

 

I fell in love with this cover and this is a feminist manifesto, it is called How to be a woman by Caitlin Moran and I hope to read it during Booktube-a-thon.

 

 

 

 

 

7. Read seven books:

I am also planning on continuing to read the Harry Potter series, so I’ll be reading Harry Potter and the Goblet Of Fire by J.K. Rowling, this doesn’t need introduction, if you don’t know Harry Potter: have you been living under a rock?; if you don’t like Harry Potter, what are you doing with your life?

 


This is my Booktube-a-thon TBR and I really hope that I can finish these 7 books, I probably won’t but I can dream.

Hope you enjoyed this post, if you did check out my other posts.
