Never heard of LitRPG before? You're probably not the only one. Recently made popular by Ernest Cline's Ready Player One, LitRPG (Literary Role Playing Game) is a literary genre in which games or game-like challenges make up an essential part of the storyline. These books merge traditional book-style narration with quests, achievements, and other typical gaming elements, making them feel more like a journey than a reading experience.
