GUYS. As soon as I saw this tag I HAD to. HAD. TO. If you don’t know the latest craze to sweep, well, a portion of the world, it is Pokemon GO!, a game where we can finally all realize our childhood dreams and become Pokemon masters! So, why not combine two loves of mine, books and Pokemon? This tag was created by Aentee @ Read at Midnight and I’m so excited to do this tag!

Of course, I didn’t know about the Pikachu starter until way after the fact, and I had no idea what I was doing when I first started the app, so I ended up with a Squirtle when I wanted a Bulbasaur. But that’s okay!
As for what started my love of reading? I have no idea! I just know that I’ve always loved to read. I would read children’s science books as a kid, beautiful story books, and more.
Again: Pikachu starter never happened. And I still haven’t found one in the wild. One day!
Hmm, I’m not big on classics at all… I guess I’m going to say the same as Aentee and say Harry Potter. Even though I haven’t read the whole series, it’s definitely a modern classic that has changed the world of reading forever, I think.
ZUBAT. ZUBAT EVERYWHERE. Same with the damn Pidgey and Rattata.
I think Passenger by Alexandra Bracken is definitely one I lost interest in because it was everywhere at the beginning of this year. I heard a lot of mixed reviews on it and, personally, I’m half way through and really bored with it. So, yeah, interest is gone.
I have not heard of or seen a Ditto anywhere in the game yet, but I hope to one day!
When I read Shadow and Bone by Leigh Barudgo recently I felt that it followed a lot of the same kinds of tropes I see in fantasy YA books: dark, brooding love interest; not strong female character, but gains strength in multiple ways; childhood love interest. I mean, I do enjoy all of these tropes! But, like I stated in my review, it didn’t completely do it for me but I still really enjoyed it.
My husband has encountered Snorlax multiple times and STILL hasn’t caught one. Poor guy.
Have you heard of Outlander? It’s a ginormous book that’s full of a lot of history and story and stuff and I’m interested in it, but I don’t know if I’ll ever start reading it because it’s such a time commitment.
I’ve caught a few Ghastly, but I haven’t seen a Gengar yet!
My beloved A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J. Maas has kept me up late at night because I NEEDED to know what happened next. Every page, every chapter, I needed to know what happened next. It was a miracle I was even able to function when I wasn’t reading it.
I’m working on trying to evolve my Nidorina and Nidorino into Nidoking/queen. I love these Pokemon!
Oh man, where do I even begin? Here’s a few: Feyre/Rhysand, Aelin/Rowan, Karou/Akiva, Zuzana/Mik, Sofia/Gideon, Lee/Flynn, Lilac/Tarver, Blue/Gansey, Ronan/Adam…. And the list can go on and on and on.
I caught a Ponyta as soon as I hit level 10 very close to my work, but I have yet to see a Rapidash.
Eevee is one of my top five favorite Pokemon! My number one is Growlithe, then Cubone, then Eevee! (Then Sylveon and Phanpy.) I’ve caught a bunch and I have all the Eeveelutions that are out so far.
I’m pretty sure I’ll forever see spinoffs of the Shadowhunter realms by Cassandra Clare, and I’m perfectly okay for that. I need to catch up, for sure…
Yes, my useless friend, I will forever love you.
I can’t wait for the opportunity to catch these guys!
I’m still excited to read the next Throne of Glass novel, of course! I miss the characters and the world and I can’t wait to see what’s waiting for them next in the world. I’m doing really bad with the readalong, but I’m going to keep trudging forward!
Need. Both. Especially Mew.
Hmmm… I do have a few collector’s editions of some books I love, but I don’t know what other collector’s editions there are out there! But I’m sure I’d find one eventually. But, if we’re talking clothing, I’d really like anything Hufflepuff related just to get my collection started because I’m a proud Hufflepuff! Also, more ACOMAF/TOG fan things, thanks.
Must. Walk. More.
Hmm… I’m not sure! I’m kind of behind on the times with what’s coming out as debut novels lately. Any suggestions as to what I should keep my eye out for?
I was finally shown how to use one of these and I felt like an idiot for not realizing sooner.
Have you met my queen, Sarah J. Maas? And Laini Taylor. And Amie Kaufman and Meagan Spooner.
It’s the new blue screen of death!
AND THERE YOU HAVE IT! Ah, I love how Pokemon GO! is changing so many lives and making the communities come back together again and it’s just so cool! I love being able to live out my dream of becoming a Pokemon master!
All of you beautiful people that are into Pokemon! Do it!
Let’s Chat! ≧◡≦
I’m on Team Mystic, what team are you on? Which Pokemon starter did you pick? What level are you on now? I think I’m level 13. Are you excited to become a Pokemon master?
