Sequel September TBR 2018

I rarely do challenges. Frankly, since I’m mostly a mood reader, I rarely write TBR posts. I get so nervous and shy. Yes, I get shy. (I may not seem like it, but I am) So I just let challenges pass me by when I find a new one each month. But not this month. The lovely Kathy from Books and Munches, who I adore, is now hosting Sequel September! Do I know what to do?! No! But here I am.

I can squeeze in more books, but I’d like to have some room for non-sequels. I need variety, you know? So here are my possible choices for Sequel September:

Catwoman: Soulstealer by Sarah J. Maas

I might as well rename this challenge “Maas Destruction.” I loved Batman: Nightwalker. And since Catwoman is my favourite DC villain, there’s no chance I can pass up this book.

 

Assassin’s Blade by Sarah J. Maas

My body is not ready. I can’t read Sam’s story. I can’t. But I’ll let myself suffer. I love suffering, sniffling, and crying like a three-year-old. But I need some backstory before I move forward with Empire of Storms and Tower of Dawn.

 

The Caged Queen by Kristen Ciccarelli

I was so happy to hear Kristen was expanding her series. Caged Queen is more of a companion book, but I don’t care. I need to know what happens to Asha. I just hope I get more dragons. Please, Kristen, have more dragons in your series.

 

Wildcard by Marie Lu

I ALMOST FORGOT ABOUT THIS BOOK. Hit me, please. I am not worthy of it. I’m not. But that cliffhanger at the end of Warcross has kept me on edge since I read it. So I need closure. I just hope it’s good.

 

One Dark Throne by Kendare Blake

I’ve been avoiding this series like the plague even though I liked the first book. I hate two particular characters in it, but I need to get to this sequel so I can read the third. And I’m loving the whole world in the series.

 

Which sequels are you tackling this month? Which ones are you desperate to read? Are any of my picks on your list? Let’s chat!

#TheReadingQuest Recommendations

 

So you’ve signed up for The Reading Quest, but you’re not sure what to read. I get you. Trust me, looking at that Quest Board is a beauty to behold, until you look at how many choices you have, then you freak.

Thankfully, I quickly found my choices (having a stock pile of books sitting on your shelf will help). But if you’re having a “I don’t know what to read next!” moment, I’ve made a list for each character class so you can find your next read. I’ve thrown in some to-be and recently released books as well!

Naturally, I procrastinate by making this post, while I should be catching up on my own quest. Go me. 😅 Hopefully, these recs help!

Now I’m listing several books that work for multiple classes and squares (you don’t want to see my written list. It’s way too bloody long). These choices give you different options so you won’t get stuck on a square or class. If you’ve already chosen one square for a book, just move on to the next.

 

Happy questing!

The Reading Quest TBR

I’m participating in my first—yes, you read that correctly—reading challenge, The Reading Quest, hosted by Aentee @ Read at Midnight. CW @ Read, Think, Ponder created all the character designs. If you want to sign up, you have until August 13th to do so, so don’t miss out! This challenge runs from August 13th to September 10th. You can find more details at Aentee’s original post linked above.

This book nerd is giddy to get started! Naturally, I pick the Mage, but you have many other character classes to choose from: the Rogue, the Knight, or the Bard. Take a look character classes below.

 

 

As I previously stated, I haven’t done a reading challenge before, but this one brings challenges to a new level. It’s styled like a video game. It has more of a D&D feel to it, which I appreciate. I’m not looking to win anything, other than to meet, connect, and chat with bloggers and readers. Here’s the quest board:

 

 

Well, you can’t do a challenge post without listing the books you’ll read. So here are my choices (which might change throughout the challenge):

The first book of a series: Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone by J. K. Rowling

A book set in a different world: Unseen Wings by Rebecca Gomez Farrell

A book based on mythology: The Darkest Seduction by Gena Showalter

A book that contains magic: The Darkest Craving by Gena Showalter

A book with a one-word title: Rituals by Kelley Armstrong

 

I’m still debating on the side quests, but I’ll list them here if I decide to complete them!

 

If you’re new to challenges and have no clue of how to calculate the points you earn, visit Lauren @ Wonderless Reviews, who has created a Google spreadsheet. Thank you, Lauren!

 

I hope everyone has fun! Happy reading.
