ITS BEEN A MONTH (and a bit coz I need to be a little late, I have an image to maintain) A MONTH since I started the reading quest hosted by the absolutely most amazing and wonderful people Aentee @ readatmidnight and CW @ ReadThinkPonder these two amazing humans created this readathon, took so much time out of their month to keep up with the hashtag and answer so many questions, if you haven’t checked them out do so 😀
Now I had a super ambitious TBR and I saw all the omg good luck comments but have faith! I have little life and spend too much time on trains so I completed ALL the quests I set out to do. I may have swapped some books around but, alas I finished 12 books for the reading quest:
First book in a series: Leviathan Wakes 579pgs
I’m not sure if I’m going to continue this series and if I do I’ll be reading the physical as the audio just didn’t do it for me. I really liked the concept and world building but the characters failed to grab me. 3/5 Stars
A Book with a verb in the title: They Both Die at the End 384pgs
A random entry! Alex the lovely human sent me the audio for free and I really loved it, the narrators are fantastic. The hype was a bit to high for me but I’ll definitely be picking up Adam Silveras other books 4/5
A book with a weapon on the cover: Morning Star 524pgs
Morning Star was the final book in the Red Rising trilogy and I really enjoyed it, the whole series is action packs and in space, and the characters are deep and complicated 4/5 Stars
Laini Taylors writing and would building never fails to impress me, I loved how gritty this book was and wasn’t expecting it to get as dark as it did. Karau and Zuze are my favourite friendship and I adore them a lot. 4/5 Stars
I was happily surprise with this book, while it did have a lot of annoying tropes like girl hate and slut shaming it was a genuine read with great sex positiveness in a teen. It’s also completely different then the movie which I actually liked, both movie and book draw on the overall same theme but use different methods to get there. 3/5 Stars
Such a small name for a very large book! This is actually 1400 pages but I read a lot of it during the Tome Topple and finished in the overlapping time of the two readathons. I loved it, I also really enjoyed the movie and can’t wait for part 2. 5/5 stars
What to even say about this kickass book! I was lucky enough to receive an early review copy and dropped everything to read this beauty. One of my most anticipated reads this year and it did not disappoint
A book based on mythology: Beautiful Venom 25pgs
This is a smol cheat. It was the last day of the readathon and I needed a mythology book ticked off, luckily Cindy Pon’s story is a retelling of Medusa and fit perfect!
A book set in a different world: Golden Son 430pgs
This trilogy is just all the epic. The second book had so much emotion and such a great pace. I loved all the characters and seeing
First book in a series: Leviathan Wakes (0 pgs double)
- This shattered world 400pgs
- Between two thorns 384pgs
- Dreams of gods & monsters 613pgs
I read some pretty epic books for this challenge, my favourites being Godsgrave by Jay Kristoff and IT by Stephen King. I’m also patting myself on the back for finishing off 2 series and reading 5 books with 500+pages!
Beautiful Venom was my get out of jail free card, I did have American Gods slotted there but fast forward to the last day and me not having started it… yeah, I wasn’t even going to attempt 500+ pages in one day so I swapped it out for Cindy Pon’s short story featuring a Medusa retelling.
ALRIGHT lets just be clear on something, you know that lady meme with all the math symbols around her looking thoroughly confused? Yah well that’s me 100% of the time when faced with numbers BUT I have the awesome Tash from Thoughts by Tash that not only made my character card, she calculated my points for me, Tash if this was a book you’d be in my acknowledgments ❤
- 230 EXP points
- Level 4.6
- 547.5 HP
I had so much fun reading with everyone this month and seeing all the reviews and tweets, I saw a few people complete the whole board which is EPIC. I loved all the people having fun participating no matter what their reading goal was ❤
So did you join in with The Reading Quest, let me know if your wrap up post is up so I can check it out! What was your favourite book of the whole thing?
