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…
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!)
Been 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. 🙂
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.
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…
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!
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!
