With OATHBRINGER, Book 3 in the Stormlight Archives, coming out on November 14 I thought it was high time to start rereading the series. After all its only about 2100 pages right?
I began on October 1st and barring some delays (totally forgot about NYCC and the exhaustion that entails) I’ve gone at a good clip. If you’ve been following along on Twitter you would have seen me use the hashtag #LexieSA.
I love Reading Challenges. I’ve tried so many times to do them and once upon a time, when I first started blogging I completed them. Often! It was a great way to find new titles while feeling productive.
I fell off them for a long time because I found it really hard to do the Challenges while also keeping up with my Review Requests. But this Challenge? It sounds a lot of fun.
My co-blogger Taschima, going for the Rogue Path, posted about her Challenge Stats so I recommend you go check it out since Bard and Rogue share a tile together (though we do not share any books at this point in time).

#TheReadingQuest is a reading book challenge hosted by readatmidnight.com. This is the description according to her blog’s sign up post:

Video-game quest? Gain experience? LEVEL UP? Oh my, sign me up! It is definitely one of the most involved challenges I have ever come across. Not to mention the graphics for this challenge are so beautiful, huge props go to CW of Read, Think, Ponder for her terrific work.
You get to choose between 4 different characters archetypes: Knight, Bard, Mage, and Rogue.
Both Lexie and me are joining this particular challenge, and so we agreed that each of us should choose different characters in order to have more variety and cover more ground. I choose…
