It’s time for another #ReadThemAllThon update, which means that I’ve finished another book! Also, for those of you who don’t know about it, #ReadThemAllThon is a readathon which is Pokémon / Pokémon GO themed!
For info about the readathon, you can read my sign up post for it here. As you may know (if you’ve read my last two updates), I had a bit of a wonky start due to not having finished Nevernight when the readathon started, and then suffering from an intense book hangover afterward. I managed to push through, though, and read This Savage Song by Victoria Schwab at a relatively okay speed, all things considered. Haha. I finished and reviewed This Savage Song, and then moved on to Ghostly Echoes by William Ritter.
I then had another setback, when I happend to go cottaging / camping for 3 days, and had absolutely no time to read! Thus, I fell behind again. Luckily though, I had at least 1 day last week where I could read for a few solid hours, and I finished and reviewed Ghostly Echoes, also last week. I now have my Marsh Badge and my Cascade Badge! I was also able to evolve Pikachu into Raichu!
I do miss my Pikachu, but am happy to see how nicely Raichu is developing (he is at 574 CP now)! I am also getting quite attached to him!
As those of you who read my last update know, I started reading the book which I selected to read in order to earn the Boulder Badge, Labyrinth Lost by Zoraida Córdova, last week. I was away over the weekend though, and because we were staying in a cabin as well as spending a lot of time on the beach, I didn’t want to chance bringing my Kobo and having it stolen.
I therefore decided to read another of the books which I selected for #ReadThemAllThon in stead…Cinder by Marissa Meyer! I figured that no one would bother stealing a paperback, and as it happens…I was right! I was also able to finish the book in three days! This may not sound too impressive for some of those quick readers out there, but considering how busy I was with activities and finding places to eat, etc., etc. …I think I did pretty good!
I now also have my Soul Badge! Hurray! You can read my review for Cinder here.
There are also some more updates which I would like to mention. It turns out that I had to change my book choice for the Earth Badge portion, because my sister packed Shatter Me and moved away with it. Hahaha. And because I am also hooked on the series now, and would like to know what happens, I have decided to replace Shatter Me with Scarlet by Marissa Meyer (the sequel to Cinder)!
Soooo expect a review for Scarlet soon! Because I’m sure I’ll fly through this book as quickly (if not quicker) than Cinder! I will get back to Labyrinth Lost later this week. It comes out on the 6th of September, and I’d like my review to go up as close to that date (and preferably prior to that date) as possible.
Thanks for reading, and feel free to leave opinions and comments below! I’d love to know what you think about this readathon (or readathons in general)! Or Pokémon even, or my choice of Pokémon (Pichu-Pikachu-Raichu) for this contest!
