#TheReadingQuest Wrap Up

QuestBoardWeek4.jpg

Wow. The last month or so has been awesome. I wish it went a little longer because I’m sure I could have finished a lot more! This week I wrapped up 3 books this week. Considering I’ve been extremely busy this week I’m pretty proud of that accomplishment.

Finished This Week:

Respawn: The Historian by Elizabeth Kostova 

EXP: 10

HP: 78.05

I’m so glad I finished this. I left it almost finished when I was in college and never went back. BIG MISTAKE! If only because the book is the length that I always struggle with.  For some reason under 20 hours and over 30 is my sweet spot for audiobooks. I kept finding myself not interested. I would have gotten way farther in this challenge honestly if I had just powered through this one quicker. I couldn’t though. It was too long and drawn out. It’s not as good as I remember. I just felt meh about it. It’s a 3/5 for me.

A Book Based on Mythology: The Hidden Oracle by Rick Riordan

EXP: 10

HP: 37.6

So I finished Percy Jackson loved it. Never finished another Riordan series. Not because i didn’t like them, but other books ya know? You get side tracked and read other series at least if you are me. Anyways back to goodness. This one was great. I really enjoyed it and read it super quickly over a few days. 4/5 fun times with Greek mythology:

A Book Set In Another World: The Demon In The Wood by Leigh Bardugo

EXP: 10

HP: 3

I’m not gonna lie. I picked this because it is 30 pages and I wanted to finish the Mage quest line before the reading quest ended. Really enjoyable gives good backstory to the darkling character. 3.5/5

Final Stats:

Exp: 285

Level: 6

HP: 365
Final Thoughts:

I loved this reading challenge. It’s going to live on my must participate list for a long time. I think next time I will plan my reading out better and stick to shorter reads as much as possible.
