#TheReadingQuest Wrap Up/Highlights

Since I did every book challenge, I’m sure you don’t want to hear about every book.

You, probably: “not another #theReadingQuest update!!! >:(”

#TheReadingQuest Update 1

Finished my first book, some older woman is bullying some of the participants, and I’m having fun reading…

I completed my first book!

View my Goodreads review here (it has also been added to this blog’s queue). I read The Wrath and the Dawn by Renee Ahdieh. I enjoyed the story, and it received 3/5 stars.

The story was based of Arabian Nights.

Next I will read Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard. I have read this before and did not like it. Finger’s crossed I do this time!

 

This week is flooded with uni assessments and exams, so bear with me.

IN OTHER NEWS… 

peaces_icons-harrumphI’ve had beef with somebody who’s being a shark on the book blogs and forums participating. This woman is going around on teenager’s accounts and discounting their reading; taking this reading challenge way too far. I scavenged the web to see if other #TheReadingQuest participants were being attacked, and indeed there were. In particular: teen girls. Not cool, Miss ‘I like to spend my time trying to argue with minors who are just trying to have some fun while reading’.

 

I’ve been obsessed with The Office (U.S.) lately. Half way through season 3, it just clicked. I suddenly understood the humour.

 

Okay back to assignments and study…

#TheReadingQuest has Started!

From today until the 10th of September, I will be participating in a book challenge hosted by Read at Midnight. You can find my sign up/entry post hereI love that this is an Australian-hosted challenge! 

I’ve made a couple cute images for the quest!

This is just a run-down of the challenge’s rules.

And I finally made a character profile:

I am determined to win! (or at the very least; have a lot of fun 🙂 )

ARE YOU PARTICIPATING IN THE READING QUEST?

Poll

Are you participating in #TheReadingQuest? If so, which character are you playing as?

Don’t know what I’m talking about? Check out my blog post explaining it/entering here or check out the original post explaining it here.

 

I will also try to read as many recommended books that I found on the Reading Quest’s Goodreads Discussion group:

DO YOU UNDERSTAND HOW EXCITED I AM FOR THIS CHALLENGE???

this-is-the-best

I know it’s just reading, but this whole set up will be cool to interact with fellow readers and have friendly competition going on.

I wish everybody good luck!

Let’s pray I don’t get swamped by uni work and have to neglect this challenge like I did for Make Me Read-a-thon 😦

Make Me Read-a-thon Day 1

oops I may have forgotten

What a failure.

Okay, not a failure. I was busy doing uni work and cleaning my bedroom– so I’m not too sorry.

Here are the results for the order in which I’ll be reading my stack of books:

I got 90 votes????? That’s great feedback from the book community– success!

I think I’m most excited to read Geekerella, which is ironically one of the least popular voted. 

My current goal is to read the end of my CR (Beautiful Disaster) so I can get started!

Buddy Reads:

  • The Wrath and the Dawn– I’ll be reading along with Maura.
  • Red Queen– Min and Shannon will be reading with me.
  • An Ember in the Ashes– Miss Emily will be reading with me.

Optimistically, I’d like to say that I will have read all of these books by the end of the week. But with upcoming uni assessments, I doubt it.

Oh well. Happy reading, bookworms!
