Through a spectacular display of forgetfulness combined with procrastination I forgot to schedule this post to go up before sign-ups closed! I'm a genius. But this is such a fun idea and I was so excited to take part that I'm gonna go ahead and do the reading for it anyway - although obviously without being eligible for prizes!
This challenge was created by Read at Midnight (sign up post and details here) and the artwork was created by
This is a reading quest inspired by video games and as I am hugely into video games (particularly RPGs) this whole thing has fascinated me since I first heard of it. The first step is to choose a character class - which will dictate the books you will need to read during the readathon. This is a simple one for me because I am always a rogue. Stealth, daggers, archery - its 100% my deal and the book prompts for this suited me as well.
A Banned Book:
Annie on My Mind by Nancy Garden. Because OMG I have been meaning to read this for such a long time.
A Book Cover With a Partially Obscured Face:
The Treatment by C.L. Taylor. I got a signed ARC of this at YALC and whilst my review for it wont go up until October I'm just way too desperate to read it to leave it that long!
A Book With <500 Ratings on Goodreads
Wanted by Betsy Schow. Another YALC book. This is the sequel/companion to Spelled, I am a huge fan of fairy tale retellings too so this should be a good one!
A Book Published By A Small Press
Powerless by Tera Lynn Childs and Tracy Deebs. OK I struggled with this category because I'm not 100% on what does or does not count as a small press? I think Sourcebooks is a smaller press and I'm going with it for now.
A Book With a One Word Title:
Invictus by Ryan Graudin. Another YALC book (seriously YALC was amazing)! This is one of my most anticipated books of the year and I cannot wait!
Of course me being me I am likely to get lost in the side quests before I manage to complete the main quests but I am super excited to level up my character and see how this goes!!
