A Read-a-Thon that Span 3 Weeks…


READATHON

Pokémon Indigo League is a read-a-thon that goes from August 14th-Sept. 4th. Its Pokémon theme and you don’t have to know anything about Pokémon to join. For more information go to host site of Read At Midnight and to sign up.

Okay the jest of the read-a-thon there are 8 gyms (challenges) that you can compete in to get there badge. Also you get to choose a Pokémon and power them up by different ways that will help them evolve. Am going for all 8 gyms and so that means a TBR has to be made. Which could change at anytime since I have plenty of books that goes in each challenge.

First the Gyms:

pewter city

TBR: The Kiss of Deception by Mary E. Pearson. This might change because I have lots of first books in a series on my TBR pile.

Page Count: 486

cerulean city

TBR: The Sea of Tranquility by Katja Millay. I had to look on Goodreads to see if I had any books on my TBR to fit this challenge. A thing about me is I don’t cry reading books so this should be a fun experience.

Page Count: 434

vermillion city

TBR: A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas. This series has so much hype behind it and there is only two books out. Should be interesting to see if I enjoy it as so many people seem to.

Page Count: 416

celadon city

TBR: Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli. These is funny because I’ve been meaning to read this for a good while but haven’t gotten to. So well see.

Page Count:320

fuschia city

FUSCHIA GYM: Prefect Chemistry by Simone Elkeles. I have been wanting to read this book forever and so now is the time to read it once and for all.

Page Count: 359

saffron city

TBR: The Beautiful and the Cursed by Page Morgan. This has gargoyles in it and set in France so sign me up. I love the concept and haven’t read a gargoyle book since switched so am excited.

Page Count: 341

cinnabar island

TBR: Wrath and the Dawn by Renee Ahdieh. I’ve been needing to read this so bad and am going to try and get it done. Should be a fun experience since I love retellings.

Page Count:388

viridian city

TBR: Blood Red Road by Moira Young. This has southern writing to it which I haven’t read before.

Page Count:459

CHOSEN POKEMON: Eevee CP: 10 EVOLUTION: 3 stages

So yeah am excited for this and getting through some of my TBR pile. All but A Court of Thorn and Roses is not part of my physical TBR so am hype for this. Plus I have Bout of Books coming so this could help with that.

I also have reviews on all these books just click on the picture and it will take you to the review. Since am  proud of myself for this a snicker pie is in order to celebrate. I went from reading three books in the beginning of the month to finishing up with 8 books.

There is also another read-a-thon that I will be doing in the beginning of June that will hopefully cut me big book TBR.

Is there anymore read-a-thons happening in June? Because I may need another one when I get a bit slump. Please let me know and if you did any read-a-thons this month.

Time for RYBSAT


These is an event that is through the 19-25 where you pick a place on your bookshelf and read those books.

I want to go contemporary for none other reason then that I need to. I have a TBR which should surprise anyone who knows me and how I never stick to them. Anyway like I said I picked four contemporaries for the week long read-a-thon and they consist of.

  

 

  1. I’ve Got Your Number by Sophie Kinsella
  2. Shut Out by Kody Keplinger
  3. Fixing Delilah by Sarah Ockler
  4. Second Chance Summer by Morgan Matson

All these books I’ve been wanting to read and so now is better than later. If I can finish these four I’ll be happy but if I just finish one I’ll be okay with.

Anyone else doing the RYBSAT this coming week if so let me know which books you would like to get through.
