#TheReadingQuest | TBR

August 4, 2017

When I first saw Aentee of Read at Midnight reveal that she was working on a video-game-quest-inspired reading adventure game (woo, mouthful), I knew I had to participate. For all of the details of #TheReadingQuest, be sure to take a look at this signup post.

#TheReadingQuest runs from August 13th - September 10th. I will be posting weekly updates on the blog, and (hopefully) vlogging the whole time so I can post a video wrap up after it has finished.

I will be embarking on the ROGUE path: These adventurers have absolute mastery over stealth and speed, and they slip in and out of the quest through the Fifth Across path. They celebrate underappreciated books and half-forgotten stories.

(Also, how amazing is the character art, courtesy of CW of Read, Think, Ponder!?)




I will be starting at the bottom right corner of the board and working on all of the 5 boxes along the bottom. If I complete all of these, I can then continue along the Mage's path. I can also choose to do any of the side quests (middle boxes) at any time.

Below is a tentative TBR of the books I hope to read for the Rogue path, as well as some book options should I choose to do any side quests or continue along the Mage path.
