Well, I am crumbling under peer pressure and joining the Pokemon Indigo League #ReadThemAllThon created by Aentee at Read at Midnight! I know pretty much nothing about Pokemon, but this read-a-thon sounds pretty fun!

The read-a-thon runs from August 14-September 4 and there are 8 challenges, corresponding with the 8 gym badges you can earn in the Pokemon game. (Did I say that right? Like I said, zero Pokemon knowledge here.)

Check out what I’m planning to read!

Spells and Sorcery by S. Usher Evans!!! I FINALLY met my darling Sush in person last weekend and snagged an ARC of her upcoming release! I cannot wait to dive into this one. Theres a good chance I may not be able to wait until the read-a-thon starts…

readthemallthon-badge02-cascader

Harry Potter and the Cursed Child by J.K. Rowling, John Tiffany, and Jack Thorne. I am currently finishing up an audiobook reread of the entire Harry Potter series, which has been bringing about a lot of tears lately. Why not continue the suffering and jump right into the newest Harry Potter book while I’m at it? (PS – spoil me and I will hunt you down….)

Nevernight by Jay Kristoff. I have actually already started this one, and I can definitely say that the hype is well-deserved. I can’t wait to keep reading and laugh and cry and be destroyed by this book. (PS – as I was writing this post my Waterstones special edition arrived and all I have to say is AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!! You can check out my Instagram story for a tour of my beautiful book!)

readthemallthon-badge04-rainbowBeen Here All Along by Sandy Hall. I was able to meet Sandy last weekend as well, and she is so lovely! There is a reason why I must read this book now and why I needed to talk to her last weekend, but it’s still a secret at the moment. 🙂

readthemallthon-badge05-soul

My Lady Jane by Cynthia Hand, Brodi Ashton, and Jodi Meadows. I was actually ALSO able to meet Jodi last weekend! (It was seriously an awesome weekend.) For some reason, I have been reading My Lady Jane for what seems like forever. I keep putting it on the back burner, but now is my time to finish it. I am adoring it so far and I can’t wait to read more.

readthemallthon-badge06-marsh

Legacy of Kings by Eleanor Herman. This is the book of the month for August for the Fanboy Book Club! I am hosting this month and I haven’t even started the book yet, so I should really get on top of that…

readthemallthon-badge07-flame

Sweep: Volume 3 by Cate Tiernan. These books are my guilty pleasure. I read them so quickly and love every second of it. Plus, it’s over 500 pages, so hooray for a high page count in a short period of time!

readthemallthon-badge08-earth

Gathering Blue by Lois Lowry. I was trying desperately to find a nice short post-apocolyptic book for this challenge and someone mentioned The Giver. I’ve read that already, but I never continued with the quartet, so now is the perfect time! It should be a nice quick read, and hopefully a good one too!

_______________________________

For this readathon, you can also choose a Pokemon and there are different ways you can earn points to evolve your Pokemon. I have chosen possibly one of the most useless Pokemon, Slakoth. I find it fitting however, because Slakoth likes to lounge around and be lazy all day, just like me. But then it evolves into Vigoroth, who can’t stand to sit still for very long (again, like me). Vigoroth then evolves into Slaking, who is lazy yet again. I feel like this will be a perfectly accurate representation of the stages of my readathon – lounging around doing nothing but reading, getting restless and needing to be active, and finally collapsing from readathon-induced exhaustion.

Check out Aentee’s post to learn about the point system, because there’s no way I could explain it better than her!

Will you be joining the #ReadThemAllThon??? What books did you pick for your TBR?

When you gotta catch ’em all…..

…..blame it on the books.

BookTube-A-Thon TBR!

Hi everyone! I have been trying to make up my mind about the BookTube-A-Thon for weeks now, trying to decide if I wanted to participate. But I think it is exactly what I need! I haven’t exactly been slumpy lately, but I haven’t been able to read as much as I would like, so I think this readathon is perfectly timed. BookTube-A-Thon was the first “event” that I participated in when […]

February TBR

Hi everyone! I didn’t do a TBR last month because life got in the way and by the time it was ready to post there was about a week left in January…oops. This month I have a general idea of some books I want to read, but I think I may also peruse my shelves and just pick up whatever I am feeling at the moment. I’m really in the […]

My Absurdly Large December TBR

I finally pulled myself out of a gigantic reading slump the other day…and then I realized I was 20 books away from reading 100 books in 2015. Now, I know, reading 80 books in a year is fantastic. I’m so happy that I was able to read so much this year. BUT, I am also slightly crazy. I look at the number of books I’ve read this year and all […]

No-TBR November | My Month of Mood Reading

Well, it’s that time again…the time for a list of the books I will be reading during the coming month. But I am boycotting TBR lists for the month of November. I had a massive TBR for October, and even though I didn’t manage to get to all the books on my list, I read a ton and I really enjoyed myself. But this month, a TBR just isn’t feasible. […]

My Travel TBR!

If you are reading this, then I am currently packing my bags and getting ready to hop on a plane! I have two very big work trips coming up and I will basically be on the move until about the middle of November. It’s going to be a crazy couple of weeks. I have pre-written a bunch of posts and packed my bags, and now comes the most important part […]

Dewey’s 24-hour Read-A-Thon TBR!

Hey everyone! I have been taking a break from read-a-thons lately, but this weekend I will be jumping back into the swing of things! I will be participating in Dewey’s 24-hour Read-A-Thon which runs for 24 hours straight on October 17. Something really cool about this read-a-thon is that everyone starts reading at exactly the same time, no matter where you are in the world. Solidarity, sister! To find out your […]

October 2015 TBR

October is here! I am a summer girl through and through, so it was hard for me to say goodbye to the warm weather. But I do love October! Fall in New England is just perfect, and this time of year calls for reading lots of spooky, creepy books. When I first pulled out all the books I wanted to read this month, then added review books and new releases […]

September 2015 TBR

Well, I am pretty horrible at sticking to my TBRs, but I am going to try really hard in the month of September. I want to take it pretty easy this month, though. I am still feeling a little burnt out from all the readathons I have done lately. I have a couple readalongs I want to participate in this month, as well as some books that have just been […]
