The Reading Quest | Sign-Up

So, Aentee kept teasing these gorgeous graphics on her Twitter, so when this was finally posted in full, I was immediately drafting my TBR. I don't think I'm going to read all these books. This is the month (30 days over two months, whatever) that I'm moving back to school and starting my junior year, so #stress. I also tried to include as many ARCs and big books and books that I own for this challenge in a half-hearted attempt to join in multiple readathons.


(Because I am notoriously terrible at sticking to a TBR pile.)

I flip-flopped between Mage and Knight for ages, but I ended up settling on MAGE because it aligned better with the ARCs that I have as well as some of my top priority TBR books. Also, magic and fantasy is 80% of what I want to read always.


Mage Path:
  • A book with a one-word title: Artemis by Andy Weir
  • A book that contains magic: Wild Beauty by Anna Marie McLemore (this is magical realism, so I won't really be sure until I read it how much actual magic is in it so this may change to Power & Magic: The Queer Witch Comic Anthology)
  • A book based on mythology: The Penelopiad by Margaret Atwood
  • A book set in a different world: Siege & Storm by Leigh Bardugo
  • The first book in a series: Nevernight by Jay Kristoff


Side Quests:
  • Potions - a book concocted by 2+ authors: My Lady Jane by Cynthia Hand, Brodi Ashton, and Jodi Meadows
  • Multiplayer - buddy read a book: I have not planned anything for this, and let's be real, the amount of books I'm assuming I'll read in the first month of school is laughable already.
  • Grind - a 500+ page book: The Mime Order by Samantha Shannon
  • Time Warp - a book set in either the past or the future: The Gentleman's Guide to Vice and Virtue by Mackenzie Lee
  • Open World - read whatever you want: this will be whatever I manage to read that's not one of these books
  • Respawn - read a book you previously DNFed: (okay, so I might cheat a bit on this one because when I DNF books, they're done for good, so I might use a book I started and just never finished? is that cheating?) tentatively, this is Cress by Marissa Meyer, but it's looking like this won't actually happen
  • Expansion - read a companion novel or short story: This Night So Dark by Amie Kaufman & Megan Spooner
  • Mini-Game - read a graphic novel, novella, or poem collection: I'm assuming this includes comics as well? Either way, this will probably be March, book three by John Lewis
  • Animal Companion - book referencing an animal on the cover: Wolf by Wolf by Ryan Graudin
