BOOK TAG | POKEMON GO!

pokemon-go-book-tag

you can check out the original post at Aentee’s blog. i was tagged to do this after i’d already decided to do it. i don’t really play the game very much, but i like pokemon so i thought i should do it. plus, it’s a fun tag. i’m tagging jess, but if anyone else wants to do it, you’re free to do so.

pokemon-tag-01starters

this one’s very obviously the hunger games, the first book (series) that i read which made me seek out more. and also divergent (only book one, unfortunately it’s a standalone …) made me realise that there was a trend here and quite possibly a genre. (thank you, young adult!!!) i think i started reading around 2010 0r 2011. i still have a lot of books to catch up on!

pokemon-tag02pikachu

i don’t read a lot of classics, but i do love the sherlock holmes books, and i guess they’re classic enough. ooh, and both hans christian andersen & the grimm brothers fairytales.

pokemon-tag-03-zubat

i can’t really think of one, but i recently read and i darken and i found that too much politics/information to learn that i lost interest very easily and often had to pick up another book just to have a break.

pokemon-tag-04-ditto

i’m not sure about tropes, but red queen was like a rip off of all my fav dystopian novels. it had all the good parts of them all. although in having these parts, i couldn’t stop thinking of the novel that originally had them and it really did impact my reading experience. (however i still really love it).

pokemon-tag-05-snorlax

i’ve owned game of thrones/a song of ice and fire since november last year and i haven’t touched them (unless it was to admire or take photos of them). i really want to read them, but they’re so daMN BIG!! this is also outlander, however i recently started them due to the amazing season finale of season 2 and i wanted to know what happens next. (i think the show will end/have been cancelled by the time i even finish the first book!! they’re HUGE).

pokemon-tag06-gengar

i honestly can’t think of a book that’s kept me up all night. when i’m tired, i stop reading, no matter how good it is. i’m going to say the hidden oracle (rick riordan) though, because i thought it was absolutely amazing and it’s definitely worth an all nighter.

pokemon-tag07-nidokingqueenpercabeth. that is all.

pokemon-tag08-rapidash

the entire percy jackson series is a fast paced read! but i also think the gallagher girls, by ally carter, are amazingly quick.

pokemon-tag09-eevee

not sure how many times i’ve mentioned these but anything rick riordan writes, i’ll buy. in saying that, i thought his heroes of olympus series was crap, but i’ve loved every other book/series by him. plus, there’s so much that could happen in this world – there’s so many characters and variations that he could go on forever. i’m a little tired of seeing percy pop up in literally every single book though. like, yes, i love percy but you gotta give him a break and let your other characters stand in the light for once.

pokemon-tag14-magikarp

i would like to take this time to mention how lovely the throne of glass duology is. throne of glass was such a great book to me and it changed the way i read (as in now i read more fantasy, whereas before i didn’t). unfortunately, it ends after crown of midnight.

pokemon-tag12-legendary

illuminae ….? i own it but i have yet to read it. oh, and game of thrones! i was really excited to read the winner’s trilogy, but after how much i disliked TWCurse, i won’t be continuing. (sad face)

pokemon-tag15mew-mewtwo

i’m not really interested in collector’s editions because they’re so expensive and they usually don’t seem that great anyway.

pokemon-tag10-egg

i’m very excited for stalking jack the ripper by kerri maniscalco and caraval by stephanie garber! i actually have a list of debuts and new releases that i’m really excited for!

pokemon-tag11-lure-module

UNCLE RICK (bet you didn’t see that coming!). but also ally carter as i own most of her books and have no regrets. i would have more, but i gotta keep an eye on the buying as my bank disagrees.

pokemon-tag13-server-down

like, all of them????? at this present moment in time, i’m so excited for the next apollo book by riordan. the first one was phenomenal and i NEED more. to list a few: roseblood by a g howard; carve the mark by veronica roth; and frost blood by elly blake.


well, i’ve already said i tag jess, but you’re all welcome to do it. if you’ve completed the tag, feel free to comment it below and i’ll check it out!!

i’ve seen quite a few people end with what team they’re in, and i haven’t yet reached the point in the game where i have to pick one. what do you guys recommend? / what’s your favourite team? and what team are you in?
