BREAKING: I Fail At Reading Challenges, Even The Super Cool Ones {#TheReadingQuest Wrap Up}

The Reading Quest was a reading challenge based entirely on a video-game quest, which took place betweenΒ Sunday 13th August and Sunday 10th September, 2017 and was hosted by the lovely Aentee of Read At Midnight, with artwork by CW of Read, Think, Ponder. This is a look at my “achievements” in this challenge.

Just as a reminder, this was the board. I chose the path of the mage.


Well, I started this quest pretty strong and then I hit another reading slump where I just couldn’t focus on any reading. I got a little over halfway through my quest and am still planning to finish it though, just at my own pace and when my mood allows.

My final scorecard:

  • Level: 1
  • Experience Points: 50
  • Health Points: 144

Poison Study by Maria V Snyder
  • Save
The Mark of Athena by Rick Riordan
  • Save

A book with a one word title:

ACHIEVED! I read Want by Cindy Pon and I absolutely adored it. It was fun, it was diverse, it was relevant, there was friendship, there was romance, their was action. Loved it!

A book that contains magic:

ACHIEVED! For this I read Poison Study by Maria V. Snyder. It was actually the first book I read for this challenge and finished it in about two days. Definitely see why this one is a classic.

A book based on mythology:

ACHIEVED! I buddy read The Mark of Athena by Rick Riordan with Uma of Books. Bags. Burgers and well, one can go no wrong with a Rick Riordan book.

Written in Red by Anne Bishop
  • Save

A book set in a different world:

FAILED! When will I finally read Red Rising by Pierce Brown? Time will tell. (Soon, I promise!)

The first book of a series:

FAILED! I thought this reading challenge would have been the perfect incentive to FINALLY start the Others series by Anne Bishop, starting with Written in Red, but alas.


Haha. I couldn’t even finish my own quest, let alone any side quests!

DID you participate in this challenge? How did you do?

    Aha you glad you enjoyed Want! I read it a couple months back and really enjoyed it because it was so fast paced and enjoyable with fantastic characters and a great plot! I’ve been meaning to read Red Rising for a while so hopefully I get to it soon!
