#ReadThemAllThon TBR Pile

readthemallthon

This read-a-thon is hosted by Read at Midnight! Here’s a little more info about it:

The Pokemon Indigo League #ReadThemAllThon is a 3 weeks long reading challenge based on theKanto’s Indigo League. Long-time fans of the series would recognise this as the first set of gyms Ash Ketchum had to conquer in his quest to become the Pokemon Master. Now you, my friends, will also embark on a journey to become the very best. Instead of fighting gym battles, you’ll be reading books instead! The read-a-thon will run for 3 weeks between Sunday 14th August to Sunday 4th September.

I pretty much grew up playing all the Pokemon games from when I was a kid, and the recent Pokemon Go love has made me so happy! So of course I’m really excited to participate in this. I will probably add a progress page or something closer to the read-a-thon, or I might just edit this. Continue reading

Make Me Read It Read-a-Thon Progress

This is hosted by Ely @ Tea & Titles and Val @ The Innocent Smiley. Here’s some information from Val’s Blog: “Basically, this readathon allows your friends and audience to vote for what you’ll be reading. This year, the readathon will be from July 9th to the 16th! So that will give you guys a month and a half to set up voting and polls and all that.”

I wanted to say thank you first to everyone who voted on my poll in my Sign Up Post! And now for my reading list, in order from top to bottom, of the books I’ll be reading for this!

1. Six of Crows, 2. The Martian, 3. The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer, 4. Red Rising

I only chose the top four because I don’t think I’ll have time to read more than that, but if you’re wondering what the rest of the order is you can go to my sign up post and the poll is there. Below I will be posting my progress during the week and I’ll update it daily. I will also be adding updates on my Twitter and Goodreads.

So that will give you guys a month and a half to set up voting and polls and all that.” If you’re interested go ahead and check out her blog for more information. Maybe even participate with me!

So basically what you guys vote for, that’s what order I will read them in! I added a bunch from my shelf that I’ve been meaning to read and hopefully will get to during this read-a-thon. You can choose as many books as you want with your vote!

I think the poll only lasts a week, if it’s closed just leave me a comment with your vote and I will try and add a second poll!

Thanks, and I look forward to seeing what you guys pick!
