#TheReadingQuest TBR & Recommendations

Aentee over at Read At Midnight has done it again. She has made another AMAZING read-a-thon reading challenge and I can’t wait to jump into it.

This time round the read-a-thon is themed around an RPG video game in which you choose your characters class and work through reading prompts to increase your XP and HP.

The read-a-thon will run Sunday 13th August to Sunday 10 September 2017 – that’s four weeks to read as much as possible and level up as many characters as you can!

You can read Aentee’s sign up post here to find out all the rules and details and you can head over to Read, Think, Ponder to give a huge thank you to CW for all the beautiful artwork!

I haven’t decided which character I’m going to start with yet so keep an eye on my twitter to find out, and while you are over there check out the hashtag for the quest to keep up with other questers!

I’m going to attempt this reading challenge to the max and see how many characters I can level up and try to complete as many side quests as I can. So here is a list of all reading prompts, and a couple of possible books I might read for them (fear of commitment yo)!!
