PRESS START // The Reading Quest TBR!

 

giphy (2).gifMy first ever readathon and it’s video game inspired. Perfect! Aentee from Read at Midnight created this wonderful bingo readathon with lovely artwork created by CW from Read, Think, Ponder. I’ve always been intimidated by readathons for some reason and has always come up with excuses not to join them (busy with uni work, no time etc.) but when I first heard that Aentee was creating a video game inspired one, I had to join.

The Reading Quest is a readathon where readers choose a character and slay their TBR, earning experience and health points on the way. With every 50 exp earned, the character level up.

The First Book Of A Series

Nevernight by Jay Kristoff

I’ll be reading this in preparation for the GodsGrave launch in Melbourne! I attended a world building workshop held by Jay Kristoff and he referred to Nevernight a few times which made me really interested. I’ve read Illuminae and Gemina and half of Stormdancer so I can’t wait to read Nevernight.

I read a few pages of this then put it down for unknown reasons. So if i do have time to do the side quests, it would be great to get back into this.

I don’t know a lot about this because I bought it in a sale long ago and should really get into it. Also, it was really cheap.

Binti by Nnedi Okarafor

I’ve heard about Binti but didn’t know much about it. My library has a copy of Binti as an audiobook and also ebook, so it would be perfect when I’m commuting.


Will you be joining the readathon? If so, which character did you choose?
