The Reading Quest TBR

Time to try something new. I'll be joining the reading quest this month, starting July 13th and ending September 10th.
You can find everything about this quest here: https://readatmidnight.com/2017/07/29/thereadingquest-sign-up/
I chose to start the Mage path. The books I'll try to read are these:
  • A book with a one word title: Vuur by Karel Verleyen
  • A book that contains magic: Air Awakens by Elise Kova
  • A book based on mythology: The Lightning Thief by Rick Riordan
  • A book set in a different world: The Fellowship of the Ring by J.R.R. Tolkien
  • The first book of a series: The Isle of the Lost by Melissa De La Cruz
If I have time to continue with the knight path I'll read these books:
  • A book with a verb in its title: Wandering by C.E. Dimond
  • A book with a weapon on its cover: Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas
  • A book with a red cover: Return to the Isle of the Lost by Melissa De La Cruz
  • A book that has a tv/movie adaptation: Niets was alles wat hij zei by Nic Balthazar
I don't think I'll get further than this, but just in case I found a fitting book for some of the side quests as well:
  • A book concocted by 2+ authors: Because You Love to Hate Me by ... (A LOT of authors)
  • Buddy read a book: The Soddit by Adam Roberts (This will the the chosen book I'll read together with a group of friends in September)
  • Read whatever you want: I'll see what has my interests at that point.
  • Read a companion novel or short story: Non-Heir by Rachel E. Carter
If you're joining as well, let me know ;)

Much love,
Ellen

  1. YES THE LIGHTNING THIEF! PJO is so fun to read and hilarious! Even the chapter titles are funny. I hope you love it :) I liked the Isle of the Lost but it seems to have very mixed reviews, so I wonder what you'll think. Happy reading!

    Here's my TBR!

    1. I've read The Lightning Thief about 5 years ago and didn't really enjoy it. I guess the only reason for that was that I had to read it for school, in English, at the point I just started learning English. Right now I'm studying English in college so I should be fine. Time to give poor Percy another shot and read the entire series while I'm at it.
      I'm very curious about your TBR, goint to take a look right now ;)
      Have fun reading during this quest! And may the odd be ever in your favour ;)

    2. Oh my goodness, which school is this that makes you read PJO? I want to join! At my school they manage to choose the most boring stuff ever. The only book I enjoyed that we read was Good Night Mr. Tom. We also watched the movie! Thanks, and may the odds be ever in your favour as well ;)

    3. I guess the teacher was just very different in his approach. He probably realised that if we'd have to read something like that, we might actually read it. And it worked, because fantasy is way more fun than most classics :P

  2. I've been rereading the Percy Jackson books lately and it's been so fun; I love that series!!
