#TheReadingQuest Sign Up + TBR

Despite going through another hectic summer, I am determined to be a bit more active for the remaining half of this year and do more of everything: mainly reading, writing, blogging and bookstagramming, and what better way to start than with an insanely fun reading challenge? Though I have already started this month by participating in YA Buddy Reader’s MMC Page Count challenge, I am beyond excited to take part in #TheReadingQuest, hosted by none other than the brilliant, wonderful book blogger Aentee from Read At Midnight (do check out her blog if you haven’t already…she is one of my favorite bloggers out there).

What is this #TheReadingQuest Challenge?

The Reading Quest is a video game inspired challenge based on a bingo board (we’re calling this The Quest Board because Aentee said so and it sounds more fun than just “bingo board” anyway) . The rules are simple: you choose one of the four characters, and as you travel down their quest line, you have to read a book that matches their quest. For more information, read Aentee’s original post here.

Also, this challenge runs from August 13th to September 13th so sign up fast if you are interested!

Isn’t this artwork simply amazing? It’s the work of none other than my seriously talented friend CW from Read, Think, Ponder. She is such a brilliant artist, do follow her blog for more beautiful art. Many of her work are inspired by characters from her beloved books, and let me tell you, there are simply gorgeous (my personal favorite is her drawing of Tea from The Bone Witch…so beautiful!)

Character Card

Since I am a lover of magic and the otherworldly, I picked the character Mage! And here are the books I plan on reading for the Mage’s quest line.

Everything that Surfaces

Year:2017
Sometimes I have to put down what I have felt in words to better come to terms with it. If this qualifies as a journal entry, it is just that.

I took a short stroll yesterday through the graveyard in which my grandparents lie. The purpose in mind, as any reader will have figured, was to pay my respects(though not necessarily to grieve). The weather was pleasant- the feeble sunlight of a waning afternoon stretching my trailing shadow behind me like a slingshot being poised to release. I remember wondering then, if by dusk our shadows simply meld with our bodies and our darkest intentions surface as a result. Putting it in ink, it seems like quite a morbid thing to be thinking about in a graveyard, I suppose.

It was a long walk and the breeze that had set in, grew stronger. I also remember wishing I had…
