Here’s a break down of the event and what I’ll be reading:

  1. What: A 3 week Read-A-Thon inspired by PokemonGo, instead of gym battles it’s reading books! (You could potentially play PokemonGo & read…. multitasking!)
  2. When: August 14, 2016 through September 4, 2016
  3. How to Join in: Sign up anytime from now till September 4th. Just go to the signups page and follow the instructions.
  4. The Gyms & My Books:


Pewter Gym: The First Book In A Series
This Rock-type gym is the first gym Ash and the Pokemon player ever encounters. Finish this challenge to win a Boulder Badge.   TBR: Revenge of the Witch by Joesph Delaney 

Read my review of Revenge of the Witch here!  (Finished 8.16.16)


Cerulean Gym: A Book That Might Make You Cry
This Water-type gym has a badge that looks like a droplet of your tear, so read a book that will rip your heart out. Finish this challenge to win a Cascade Badge. TBR: Radiance by Grace Draven


Vermillion Gym: A Book With Thunderous Hype
Vermillion City is the home to Lt. Surge and his many Electric-type Pokemon. For this challenge, read a book that’s been hyped all over bestseller’s list and the internet.  Finish this challenge to win a Thunder Badge. TBR: Nevernight By Jay Kristoff


Celadon Gym: A Book That Focuses on Diversity
Celadon Gym is one of my favorites, because of it’s colorful Grass-type aesthetics. Read a diverse book and you will earn yourself a Rainbow Badge. TBR: I’ll Give You the Sun by Jandy Nelson


Fuschia Gym: A Book With A Great Romance
I’ve always been confused by the fact that a Poison-type gym has a heart-shaped badge. Can someone explain please. Read a book that features romance prominently and earn a Soul Badge.  TBR: Oblivion by Jennifer L. Armentrout


Saffron Gym: A Book With Fantasy/Supenatural Elements
Saffron City is where all the Psychic-types hang out, so for this challenge, read a bool with fantasy, magical realism, or paranormal elements. Finish this challenge to win a Marsh Badge. TBR: The Humans by Matt Haig


Cinnabar Gym: A Book With A Red Cover
Cinnabar Island is famous for red earth and Fire-type Pokemon. For this challenge, read a book with a red cover. Complete this challenge to win a Volcano Badge. TBR: Ruby Red by Kerstin Gier, Anthea Bell (Translator)


Viridian Gym: A Book With Post-Apocalyptic Setting
The final gym is home to a Team Rocket Leader (OK, if it’s been out 10+ years you can’t cry spoilers) and Ground-type Pokemon. For this challenge, read a book featuring a ruined, post-apocalyptic Earth. Finish this to win yourself an Earth Badge.  TBR: Cinder by Marissa Meyers

5. Starting Pokemon:

250px-060poliwagPollywag! Such a little cutie! This little guys starting CP is 10. But as I read more books it will evolve and become super powerful! (Pokemon can evolve at CP levels 150 & 400).




If you are on goodreads and we aren’t friends, we should be! So feel free to add me and I’ll add you back!

  1. I haven’t actually read any of these except for Cinder. *ashamedly covers eyes* But the whole series is amazing, and I’m really looking forward to reading a lot of these other books! Good luck!
