If you participated in (or watched from afar) #TheReadingQuest earlier this year, you’ll be delighted to know that Aentee from Read At Midnight has created another adorable gaming-themed readalong for us! This one is themed after Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp, and since AC is one of my favorite video game franchises of all time, I absolutely had to join in on this one!
It’s going to run from midnight December 10th to 11:59pm December 31st (your time zone!), and this one is much more relaxed than #TRQ was, as this one allows for books you started reading before the readathon begins! You can go here for more info, as well as a place to sign up, and sign-ups are open until the end of the month, so it’s okay if you’re a little late to join! You also don’t have to complete the challenges in order, unlike with #TRQ.
Here is the challenge board, and as you can see, a few of the squares don’t even require reading – just gaming!
As you know, I’m already doing my Facebook group’s Yule Bingo, so I’ll be combining those two challenges. Not all of my Yule TBR choices fit the #ReadersCrossing board, but I’m going to do my best!
Here is my TBR for the challenge:
pink cover: Three Sides of a Heart (anthology)
contemporary: Miles Away From You – A.B. Rutledge
book award winner: The Hate U Give – Angie Thomas
recommended by a friend: Mud Vein – Tarryn Fisher
set in your country: The Raven King – Maggie Stiefvater
animal on the cover: The Hazel Wood – Melissa Albert
superhero: Renegades – Marissa Meyer
main adventure plot: Everless – Sara Holland
2+ authors: Robots Vs. Fairies (anthology)
seasonal read: My True Love Gave to Me (anthology)
picked by a friend: Captive Prince – C.S. Pacat
Here are the details for progressing through the board:
- All campers starts with 0 Experience Points (EXP), and each book completed for the challenge (in any format: physical, eBook, or audiobook will gain them 2 EXP.
- #OwnVoices novels will give you an addition EXP point, instead of gaining 2 EXP for their completion, you’ll gain 3 EXP.
- You will level up every time you get 10 EXP points. You begin at Level 1.
- Tweeting or Instagram posts on the #ReadersCrossing will earn you points (every 5 tweets/photo will earn you 1 EXP). You can gain a maximum of 5 EXP for your social media interactions. These should be tweets related to the challenge such as comments on your current read, book recommendations, or posts about the game itself).
