I think if we limited this to the amount of times I’ve Instagrammed #thereadingquest I probably would have done well. As is…I got kind of overwhelmed with work and reading other things off my TBR that my quest pretty much failed to launch. As a Mage, anyway. When I changed my character to a Bard (because heck, if I’m still in the character customization zone I can totally change my character class without penalty, right?), I at least felt a little bit accomplished, lol!
Last month, I’d signed up for The Reading Quest challenge hosted by Aentee @ Read at Midnight. It was such a cool challenge that I was so enthused about it that I made myself a huge list that accounted for all of the quests and side quests on the board, knowing that I probably wouldn’t hit many in a month but hell, might as well fill up the board with possibilities!
In the end, I took some bookstagram pics, I read a bit, I crossed a few things off my TBR, and I realized I practically meandered into sidequest land. Which, if you know me, shouldn’t be surprising. I’m the type of girl who plays games like Fallout 4 and Skyrim and starts deviating from the main quest the minute I’m given freedom to roam. (“Alright, let’s head down to the settlement to meet the–OH THERE’S SOMETHING SHINY DOWN IN THE WATER LET’S JUMP IN!”)
So I changed my class. Beep boop. And the rest is history?
In summary, I read:
I started reading Two Years Eight Months and Twenty-Eight Nights by Salman Rushdie as a Buddy Read but my friend and I realized we were not getting into the novel so decided just to DNF it, so I suppose it doesn’t count. I also started Snow Like Ashes by Sara Raasch but it wasn’t likely that I’d get it finished anytime soon. Well, maybe by next week, who knows.
So okay, I went up 20 experience points? All the same, it was pretty fun to play, and it definitely gave me excuse to take pretty pics of my books!
What do I do with the rest of the list, you ask? Well, I suppose I can try to keep track of it as a TBR for the foreseeable future. I mean, I’m pretty behind on most of my reading challenges minus the Goodreads one, so…who knows.
