Was so excited when I saw this Read-A-Thon come up! Created by Aentee @readatmidnight, this tag is new and exciting and I have never seen anything like it before! This challenge is a 3 week Read-A-Thon taking place from the Sunday 14th of August until Sunday, September 4th. The Challenge has 8 challenges that relate to 8 gyms in Pokemon. With this challenge, you read 8 books and can also choose to participate in a point (CP) scoring challenge. To check out the announcement post go Here.
All of the challenge images were made by @readatmidnight!
Choose a Pokemon:
(For the point scoring challenge)
I have chosen Blitzle. He is a 2-stage evolution Pokemon. The second stage being Zebstrika. He gives me a starting point balance of 10CP.
I will fill in the Badges/Challenges as I complete them and update the CP as I go
For this challenge, I will be reading City of Bones by Cassandra Clare. This book has been on my TBR list for a while! I will be reading this book last as it is a series and I want to be able to continue on to the next book in the series straight after this one.
For the next challenge, I will be reading The Book Thief by Markus Zusak. I’m not sure if it will actually make me cry as the only book I have ever cried in was Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince. So we will see.
Firstly can we just talk about this gif that I found that fades from the dust jacket cover to the actual book cover! This is fabulous. Good work Google!
I choose Illuminae by Amie Kaufman in particular because I am receiving Gemina in the exclusive Gemina Box from The YA Chronicles in October and I wanted to read Illuminae before I get it. I have heard tonnes about this book and there is so much hype for it!
I chose to read a book with LGBT in it as a part of Diversity. So I chose Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe. I have heard mixed reviews about this book, so will see how I feel about it. I am also trying to read more contemporary books, and this fits.
Next, I chose Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins. Another book that I have heard a lot about on BookTube, mostly positive. Also Another Contemporary!
For this challenge, I will be reading Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs. I was meant to read this book for the BookTube-A-Thon but never got to it. I have seen this book a million times on BookTube.
I read a lot of Fantasy books so this was a pretty easy book to chose as my TBR for Fantasy reads is pretty extensive and I just had to choose one.
I have heard so much hype about this book especially now that the movie is coming out soon, or is out in cinemas? I have no idea. Me Before You by Jojo Moyes defiantly has read on its cover and it’s also another Contemporary. Go me!
World War Z by Max Brooks has also been on my TBR for a while so when I saw this challenge straight away I thought of this book!
