Review: Things We Know By Heart

Good evening! I hope you’ve all been having a terrific Thursday! It’s been a little while since my last post, which I am really, really sorry about, but school is starting for me next week and it’s been hectic trying to get everything prepared.
But today I’m back with a review for the third book that I read for #TheReadingQuest, which applied to the prompt of reading a book with a red cover.
I have added another 10XP to my existing 30XP by completing this book, putting me at a total of 40XP! Only 10 more points to go until I reach Level 2!

The book is 304 pages, earning me 30HP to add to my existing 84HP, which means I now have a total of 114HP!

Goodreads Synopsis:
When Quinn Sullivan meets the recipient of her boyfriend’s donated heart, the two form an unexpected connection.
After Quinn loses her boyfriend, Trent, in an accident their junior year, she reaches out to the recipients of his donated organs in hopes of picking up the pieces of her now-unrecognizable life. She hears back from some of them, but the person who received Trent’s heart has remained silent. The essence of a person, she has always believed, is in the heart. If she finds Trent’s, then maybe she can have peace once and for all.
Risking everything in order to finally lay her memories to rest, Quinn goes outside the system to track down nineteen-year-old Colton Thomas—a guy whose life has been forever changed by this priceless gift. But what starts as an accidental run-in quickly develops into more, sparking an undeniable attraction. She doesn’t want to give in to it—especially since he has no idea how they’re connected—but their time together has made Quinn feel alive again. No matter how hard she’s falling for Colton, each beat of his heart reminds her of all she’s lost…and all that remains at stake.

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.
