Even though I’m already doing multiple reading challenges this month, I thought it would be fun to push myself even further and add yet another one to the mix. If you haven’t yet heard, #TheReadingQuest is a video-game themed reading challenge hosted by Aentee @ Read at Midnight between August 13th and September 10th! I don’t want to regurgitate everything that’s already out there, so if you’re interested in participating make sure to check out the sign-up post for all the details.
The challenge is similar to a bookish bingo (which I’ve never done before!) where you aim to read as many books as possible that correlate to the prompts on the board. However, the rules of #TheReadingQuest require you to choose one of four characters whose path you must first complete before embarking on another journey. (How cool is that?)
I’ve chosen to begin as the Knight, with the Mage as my back-up if I manage to complete my first quest! But, choosing your character is just the beginning. You can also create your own character card, with custom skin tones! (As if it couldn’t get any cooler!) All of the character art was created by the talented CW @ Read, Think, Ponder, and the resources for creating yours can be found in the sign-up post.
As well as the Knight’s quest, I’m doing three of the side quests to help conquer my #ARCAugust TBR! I’ve also made a spreadsheet to keep track of my books, experience points and health points, which is probably my favourite part of this entire thing.
