As if we didn’t have enough reading to do this month, what with the #OWBookClub and ARC August, we have decided to join in for another fabulous reading challenge! This one is called #TheReadingQuest and it’s a challenge based entirely on videogames. The genius behind this read-a-thon is the fabulous Aentee @ Read At Midnight, and all the amazing graphics you see in this post have been created by CW @ Read, Think, Ponder.
The rules are very detailed and thus hard to summarise in a simple paragraph, but the gist is that you pick a character – bard, rogue, mage, or knight – and follow their path on the bingo board featured below. Each read will then earn you a number of EXP (experience points). The reading challenge takes place from August the 13rd until September the 10th. You can find the sign-up post, with the full rules, on Aentee’s blog post.
We on Of Wonderland are all kind of really nerdy, so we are SO EXCITED to join this challenge and experience all the fun! We also did Aentee’s read-a-thon last year, which was based on Pokémon Go, and it was the coolest. Hosting amazing read-a-thons seems to be Aentee’s special power.
Here are our character cards and intended TBRs.
A book with a one-word title // Sovereign by April Daniels
A book that contains magic // Strange the Dreamer by Laini Taylor
A book based on mythology // The Rose & the Dagger by Renee Ahdieh
A book set in a different world // Air Awakens by Elisa Kova

Aly has (maybe wisely) decided not to create a TBR, since she never follows them anyway. But she’s joining up as a Rogue!
If this post has made you excited to join as well, go over to Aentee’s blog post to read all the rules and sign up!
