For those of you who didn’t see this around the Twitter-verse, ReadThemAllThon was a Pokemon inspired readathon. It was 3 weeks long and hosted by Aentee @ Read at Midnight. I had so much fun participating because it was based on a points system. You got points for how many pages you read and how many badges you completed. You can see my TBR pots here and that will give you more info about how this readathon was set up.
The readathon is now done so I thought I’d share with you all how I did!
Here is my final trainer card:
I started off with Pichu (who is a baby Pikachu) mostly because he’s adorable. I got all but one badge, which I’m pretty proud of since I wasn’t expecting to get that many at all. Here are the books I read:
Viridian Gym: A Book With Post-Apocalyptic Setting
The Heir by Keira Cass: This one was unexpected because I’ve been on the hold list at my library since about February. I had 3 weeks to read it so I figured why not make it count towards this?
Cinnabar Gym: A Book With A Red Cover
Every Last Breath by Jennifer L. Arrmentrout: This was another unexpected one. I had started this series the week before the readathon started and couldn’t stop. There isn’t a ton of red on the cover but the cover I have has a little bit on it. Works for me.
Saffron Gym: A Book With Fantasy/Supenatural Elements
The Beauty of Darkness by Mary E. Pearson: I almost didn’t get through this book on time because it’s SO BIG. It’s the biggest book I’ve read so far this year!
Fuschia Gym: A Book With A Great Romance
Blaze of Memory by Nalini Singh: This is romance series that I’ve been working on. Each book is fantastic and I’m glad I decided to read this one now.
Celadon Gym: A Book That Focuses on Diversity
Night Study by Maria V. Snyder: This doesn’t focus on diversity in the way most people see it. For me, this book represents diversity because there’s two countries that are always feuding and in this book there’s people trying to stop that. There’s people from the south that aren’t judging people from the North (who have different skin colours by the way) because of where they live. There’s also a person of authority trying to encourage more women to be a part of his command because he believes they’re just as capable as men. It’s those subtle details that made me pick this book.
Vermillion Gym: A Book With Thunderous Hype
The Readers of Broken Wheel Recommend by Katarina Bivald: I don’t know if this is to be considered thunderous hype but I’ve seen it around SO MUCH lately that I finally decided to pick it up. I ended up loving it so I can only add to this hype.
Cerulean Gym: A Book That Might Make You Cry
This is the only badge I didn’t complete. I might have read something if I could have fit it in but I’m honestly not even sure what book I’d read.
Pewter Gym: The First Book In A Series
Shadow Study by maria V. Snyder: This is the first book in the Soulfinders series, which is a spinoff of the Study series. Both series I highly recommend!
Who else participated?! I’d love to see what books you read! Let me know!
