So this was sort of a last minute post, but a challenge that I had been keeping an eye on twitter finally went up today! This challenge is based on a traditional video game fantasy RPG, created by Antee of Read at Midnight featuring art by CW of Read, Think, Ponder.
The goal of the challenge is to level up your character by completing quests, adding up a tally for a chance at some prizes. The types of quests available to you will depend on your chosen class and there is a bonus for reading books by marginalized authors. The challenge will run from August 13th to September 10th, so just under a month.
I will be updating this post as I make progress with my list of completed quests and a tally of EXP, but for now I just wanted to get the word out about this unique and fun challenge!
For more information or possibly to sign up yourself, check out the challenge here.

I’m going to keep my reading list a little loose for this challenge since I already had a couple of books planned for this month between library check outs, blog tours, and my 20 Books of Summer challenge. I will, however, attempt to make these planned reads work for the quests!
For authors that are marginalized I will mark them with a * for the sake of keeping track.
