Hello guys!

#TheReadingQuest is a kickass video game inspired reading challenge created by Aentee @ Read at Midnight than run from August 13th to September 10th and today marks the official end of this amazing kick-ass reading challenge since yesterday was the last day. And I’m kinda proud of myself for posting this on time haha, it’s prescheduled since today is my first day back to classes and rotations *shudders*.

Anyway, I’m here to do an assessement of my reading and I must say, I did surprisingly well. I didn’t stick to my TBR down to the T (which you can see here) but I ended up finishing my character quest and doing a few side quest so I can call it a SUCCESS !!

A book with a one word title

Warcross Marie Lu. This wasn’t on my TBR, because I only got approved for the ARC after posting the sign-up post. I’M SO GLAD I ADDED IT LAST MINUTE THOUGH. This was my favorite book of the month and one of my favorites of the year. It’s just so damn brilliant. (Review)

  • Experience points: 20 EXP
  • Health Points: 41 HP

A book that contains magic

The Tiger’s Watch Julia Ember. Remember how I was so excited about this one? Well… I was disappointed. Really disappointed. It has excellent elements but fails to use them to their full potential. That being said, I’ll still continue with the series (Review)

  • Experience points: 20 EXP
  • Health Points: 18 HP

A book based on mythology

The Epic Crush of Genie LoF. C. Yee. This one on the other hand DID NOT DISAPPOINT. It was was badass and hilarious and I loved and I loved Genie and Quentin, their banter was adorable, their relationship strong and their chemistry (as warriors and as people) is undeniable. (Review)

  • Experience points: 20 EXP
  • Health Points: 33 HP

A book set in a different world

Mask of ShadowsLinsey Miller. This one was a very enjoyable read although a very predictable one. Eventhough it uses all the classic Fantasy tropes, it still managed to capture my attention and make me root for the main character. (Review)

  • Experience points: 20 EXP
  • Health Points: 38 HP

The first book is a series

Not Your Sidekick C. B. Lee. I’ve had this one on my TBR for ages, and have had the ebook for a couple months. A week back, I finished all the books on my initial TBR and forgot my copy of GoT at home when I was at my grandma’s so I decided to finally read it AND OMG WHAT AN AMAZING DECISION!! I loved this book so much, it’s cute and silly but still deals with important topics. (Review coming soon)

  • Experience points: 20 EXP
  • Health Points: 28 HP

Expansion

Walking on Knives Maya Chhabra. As I predicted, this was a disaster. Not only because of the rape and dubious consent but also because it doesn’t make any kind of sense. The plot is flimzy, the romance falls flat and it has a lot of POVs that all have the same voice and are indistinguishable. So, it’s a no from me. (Review coming soon)

  • Experience points: 20 EXP
  • Health Points: 4 HP

Mini-game

BoneYrsa Daley-Ward. I was looking forward to starting this one and although I love a couple poems and enjoyed a few others, a big chunk of them was a let down. But I feel like that was more of a “me” problem since a lot of people love it. I do recommend it though, because it deals with a lot of important themes. (Review coming soon)

  • Experience points: 20 EXP
  • Health Points: 13 HP

Grind

Game of Thrones George R. R. Martin. I read this one very slowly, picking it up between the arcs, so it took me more than a month to finish… I just get distracted, okay? That being said, oh my god, it has the most well-crafted world I have read in my life. Like, I ‘ve seen the TV-show, but reading about it and seeing it come to life gradually and with a lot more details was a whole other experience.

  • Experience points: 10 EXP
  • Health Points: 80 HP

That’s it until next time.

Hope you enjoyed, write to you soon.
