The Reading Quest Hosted by Aentee (Read at Midnight)

Another reading thing I’m going to try out~

This reading quest runs from August 13th to September 10th and is similar to a gameboard in that we choose an adventurer and pick books to read based on prompts

The Reading Quest Character Classes

Reading Quest Board

I decided to be a Mage because that’s what I usually am. Once I’ve completed the track for the Mage, I’m allowed to either do extra points by following the prompts in blue or pick a new character. I haven’t decided which I might do if I finish my quests (hehe)

What books will I be reading? (tentative list)

  1. One word title: Timekeeper by Tara Sim
  2. Contains Magic: A Darker Shade of Magic by V.E. Schwab
  3. Based on mythology: Cruel Beauty by Rosamund Hodge
  4. Set in a different world: The Hollow Crown by Jeff Wheeler
  5. First book of series: Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe by Benjamin Alire Sáenz

How to gain points? (nabbed right from the post by Aentee)

EXP Points

  • All characters will start off with 10 Experience Points (EXP), and each book (in any format: physical, eBook, or audiobook) they complete for the Quest Board will add another +10 EXP.
    • The exception are graphic novels/manga, which will give +5 EXP.
    • The exception is for books written by marginalised authors. These books will earn your characters bonus EXP. For each book completed for the Quest, you will gain +20 EXP.
  • Adventurers who complete their character’s quest before the challenge period will earn a +50 EXP.
    • You will earn an additional +30 EXP for any additional character quest you complete after that.
  • Because I am not interested in employing polynomials or convoluted equations for a reading challenge, I’m going to go ahead and say your character will level up with every +50 EXP. They all start at Level 1.

Health Points

  • All characters begin with 10 Health Points (HP).
    • Every 10 pages you read during the Quest will give you +1HP.
    • The exception are graphic novels/manga, which will give you +1HP every 20 pages.
    • Every 20 minutes will give you +1HP. Completion of the audiobook gives +10 EXP, unless it’s written by an #ownvoices author, in which case it’s +20 EXP
  • Tweeting on #TheReadingQuest hashtag (with meaningful tweets about your current reads, roleplay with your current character, book recommendations) will earn you +1HP each. You can have a maximum of +20HP from Social Media interactions
  • Photos of your #TheReadingQuest books or TBR pile will earn you 1HP each. This contributes towards the maximum of +20HP from Social Media interactions mentioned above.

Now let’s see if I even complete this challenge
