*This is an old post that has be uploaded onto my new blog- hope you enjoy!
Hello fellow readers! I will be participating in this super awesome Read-a-thon hosted by Aentee at Read at Midnight. I was so excited to discover this, as Pokemon and reading are two of my favorite things! Here is my TBR list (and other info):
Chosen Pokemon: Dratini (3 evolutions)
Pewter City: Boulder Badge – First book in a series: Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone by JK Rowling
I chose this book because- don’t shun me!- I have never read through the Harry Potter series. I know, I know- it’s blasphemy! But better late than never, I’d say. I’ve always been a fan of this series based on my knowledge of the movies and friends descriptions (and obsessions) of the books. However, I never got around to reading them myself. So with so much going on in the Harry Potter universe lately, I’d better get caught up ASAP!
Cerulean City: Cascade Badge – A book that might make you cry: Lady Midnight by Cassandra Clare
I’m SO excited to finally get to this book that I’ve had in my possession for a while now. Cassie Clare is the most amazing author and her emotional stories have never failed to make me cry at least one every book!
Vermillion City: Thunder Badge – A book with a thunderous review: Scarlet by Marissa Meyers
This one is a bit of a stretch. Scarlet itself may not have had the hype of it’s series’ conclusion, Winter, but I figured I’d cheat a bit since the series as a whole has been largely hyped and I haven’t finished the second book yet.
Celadon City: Rainbow Badge – A book featuring diversity: Zodiac by Stan Lee, Stuart Moore, Andie Tong
With characters from China, the US, and Brazil, this is the most diverse book I could find on my shelves that I haven’t already read.
Fuchia City: Soul Badge – A book with an epic romance:The Selection by Kiera Cass
Though I’m not positive if there actually is a romance, the premise of this novel leads me to believe that it will be heavily focused on such. Plus I just finished the last true romance novel I owned.
Saffron City: Marsh Badge – A book with fantasy/supernatural elements: Queen of Shadows by Sarah J. Maas
I’m excited to finally continue with this series as I have been craving some good fantasy.
Cinnabar Island: Flame Badge – A book with a red cover: The Shadow Queen by CJ Redwine
So the cover of this book turned out to be white on the front, but it’s red spine caught my eye and I decided to stick with it.
Viridian City: Earth Badge – A book with a post-apocalyptic setting: Monument 14 by Emmy Laybourne
I’ve been very excited to read this book, not only due to my love of the genre, but also because I had the privilege of personally meeting the author and getting my book signed!
This was a great idea for a Read-a-thon and I can’t wait to get reading!
