#TheReadingQuest Wrap-Up

Hello my lovely readers! A couple of days ago was the last day of #TheReadingQuest, which is a reading challenge I participated in that was created by Aentee over at Read at Midnight.

For this challenge, I selected the pathway of the knight, but unfortunately, I did not complete my challenge as I hoped I would. I completed only three of my five challenges on the knight pathway, plus one side quest.

I expected to get through way more than only four books, but back to school season was even more hectic than usual this year and sadly, I had very little time to read as a result. Also, the last two challenges I had to do for the knight were a book with a weapon on the cover and a book with a movie/TV adaptation. I had very few options for books that fit these prompts, and I just wasn’t in the mood for any of them. I am very much of a mood reader, so I’m thinking that reading challenges with very specific TBRs aren’t for me.

Despite the fact that I didn’t do as well as I had hoped and expected, I still had a lot of fun participating in the challenge, especially because of all the other wonderful readers and bloggers that I met and chatted about books with. As a new blogger, I really appreciate the great opportunities this reading challenge had! Continue reading “#TheReadingQuest Wrap-Up”

Review: The Last Time We Say Goodbye

Good afternoon everyone; I hope you’ve all have a wonderful day so far. Today, I am back with another book review! This book was the second book I have read for #TheReadingQuest, and it fulfilled the prompt of reading a book with a verb in the title.

Completing this book gives me another 10XP to my existing 20XP, meaning I am now at a total of 30XP!
This book was 390 pages long, earning me 39HP to my existing 45HP, putting me at a total of 84HP!


The Last Time We Say Goodbye by Cynthia Hand
Genre: Young Adult – Contemporary
Pages: 390
Publication Date: February 2015
My Rating: 4 of 5 stars

Goodreads Synopsis:

There’s death all around us.
We just don’t pay attention.
Until we do.

The last time Lex was happy, it was before. When she had a family that was whole. A boyfriend she loved. Friends who didn’t look at her like she might break down at any moment.
Now she’s just the girl whose brother killed himself. And it feels like that’s all she’ll ever be.
As Lex starts to put her life back together, she tries to block out what happened the night Tyler died. But there’s a secret she hasn’t told anyone-a text Tyler sent, that could have changed everything.
Lex’s brother is gone. But Lex is about to discover that a ghost doesn’t have to be real to keep you from moving on.

From New York Times bestselling author Cynthia Hand, The Last Time We Say Goodbye is a gorgeous and heart-wrenching story of love, loss, and letting go.

Reading Challenge: #TheReadingQuest Sign Up and TBR

Hey everyone! I randomly stumbled upon this super cool reading challenge that’s being hosted by Aentee over at Read at Midnight, and I thought that it looked amazing! I have always wanted to participate in a readathon of sorts, but I’ve never really had anywhere to post my progress and communicate with others easily. I am so excited to finally have the opportunity, and this particular readathon looks like so much fun! I also think that it will be a great way to meet and communicate with more people in this wonderful community of bookworms!

The quest kicks off this Sunday, August 13th, and ends on Sunday, September 10th.

The challenge is based on a video game quest and is in the format of a bingo card, with each bingo square being a reading prompt to complete. The fun twist is that you must choose one of four character classes to be, and follow that specific path on the bingo board.

The character that I have selected is the knight, so I will be following that path on the bingo board. Hopefully, I will also be completing some of the bonus challenges, which are the blue prompts on the center of the board.
