The Reading Quest readathon! August TBR continued

So I am joining not only the Tome Topple but The Reading Quest challenge, basically it’s like bingo but with points and you can win prizes, check out Aentee’s post of you haven’t already as she explains it better than I ever could. This readathon runs between Sunday 13th August to Sunday 10th September, 2017 yep 28 whole days of epic reading challenges and hopefully epic books.

The Board:

I can not get over how amazing the art is! CW over at Read Think Ponder is so talented ❤

I’ll be attempting not one, not two, BUT three lines. Yes I have lost my mind, please excuse me while I try to balance, work, social thingies, writing, the tome topple AND all these books. I really want to give my all in this challenge so I can make a huge dint in my to be read pile so here goes nothing:

Thank you to Tash for creating my card for me ❤ Thoughts by Tash

What I’m reading:


  • The First book of a series: Leviathan wakes by James S.A. Corey  (579 Pages)
  • A Book with a verb in its title: Doctor sleep by Stephen King (486 pages)
  • A Book with a weapon on its cover: Morning Star by Pierce Brown (524 pages)
  • A book with a red cover: Days of Blood and Starlight by Laini Taylor (517 pages)
  • A book that has a TV/Movie adaptation: The Duff by Kodi Keplinger (300 pages)



  • A book with a one word title: It by Stephen King (1478 pages)
  • A Book that contains Magic: Dreams of Gods and Monsters by Laini Taylor (613 pages)
  • A book based on mythology: American Gods by Neil Gaiman (541 pages)
  • A book set in a different world: Golden Son by Pierce Brown (430 pages)
  • The First book of a series: Leviathan wakes by James S.A. Corey  (REPEAT)

Side Quests:

  • Potions: A Book concocted by 2+ authors: This shattered World by Amie Kaufman and Megan Spooner (400 pages)
  • Multiplayer: Buddy read a book: Between two thorns by Emma Newman (384)
  • Grind: A Book with 500+ pages: The Republic of Thieves by Scott Lynch (643 pages)

A Random Bard square just so I can complete the full line:

  • A Fairy Tale Retelling: Devoured by Amanda Marrone (304 pages)

That is 13 books totaling 7000+ pages in 28 days, meaning I’ll have to average 260 pages a day to read ALL of these books and I think that may be doable? I mean If I manage to read a full book in one day I’ll already be ahead, at least that’s what I’m telling myself. I plan on tweeting all my reading updates so follow me there if you’re not already 🙂

I did work out my points but as I may finish some of these books before the readathon even starts (While I’m doing the tome topple) I will wrap it all up at the end and see how many I get read during the Reading Quest.

Are you joining in? What are you reading? What path are you taking? Are any of these books on your TBR too?

How amazing is Aentee for setting this up and CW for creating such amazing art! I just love the reading community so much and I’m so happy we have awesomely talented people who work so hard to put things like this together ❤

  1. Holy moley are you going to be a busy bee! I’m participating as well, though I’m only doing one path right now. If I finish in time I’ll do more, but for now it’s the Mage’s path for me. I’m not reading the same Gaiman book, but I am reading his Norse Mythology book. 😀

    1. oooh! I’ve heard great things about Norse mythology I hope you love it 😀 I am setting myself up for failure but I had so many books that filled the spots I though why not just go for it and see what happens XD

    I am so impressed with your optimism and drive, oh man. I really hope you can do it (or get super, super close)! I don’t think I’m reading any of the books for my Quest compared to what you’re reading! Yay for differences! I’ll be doing the Mage path and I can’t wait; it’s basically designed for fantasy, MY LOVES. Good luck, can’t wait to tweet along with you & motivate and READ! WHEW!

    1. Hell yeah the magic life! The Mage path is awesome and I hope you love all the books you pick 🙂 Red Rising was epic so I can not wait for Golden Son and Morning Star these characters are some of my fave and the world/plot is so interesting. I cant wait to see how you go too ❤ Hopefully it's awesome for both of us xD

    1. YES KNIGHTER! I need to check your TBR I’m so excited your joining in xD Even ones better then none, I’ve choosen way to many books but I’ll be happy if I can complete any of these since they’ve been on my TBR for ages 😀


  7. Gurl. You are CRAZY. I am super impressed with your commitment! I don’t know how you’ll be able to manage this, but I am super psyched to follow you via your blog and twitter. It seems like you’re really ready to dig in here. Are any of these books also for your Tome Topple challenge?!

    I really enjoyed the Red Rising series, so I hope you also enjoy how the series ends! American Gods is one of my favorite Gaiman books. Have you seen the TV show? I haven’t, but I hear they stop aligning past episode 6. Oops! I wish you all the best with this challenge.

    1. I KNOW xD I’m impressed by my commitment as well so we’ll see how it goes! Yep some of these cross over with Tome Topple, I’ve actually already started It because that bad boy is huge and I want to get it done.
      I havent watched the show! I’ve been putting it off so I can read the book first, I recently read Stardust and loved Gaimans writing so I hope American Gods goes to my faves list too.

      Thanks Jackie!

      1. That’s the whole point of the tome topple– HUGE books! I’m glad you’ve started to make some progress already. The Tome books really intimidate me. I can’t wait to read about your blazing successes! 😀

        I love Gaiman’s writing. I hope that you enjoy American Gods! It really captivated me.
