Pokemon Go Book Tag

pokemon-go-book-tag

Hello, hello! Today I bring to you an exciting tag: The Pokemon Go Book Tag! This game has been all that anyone can talk about for weeks now, so it’s only fitting that it makes its way into the book blogging community as well. Thanks so much to Jess @ Princessica of Books for tagging me! This tag was created by Aentee @ Read at Midnight.

Without further ado, let’s get started!!

675636For some reason I have a very vivid memory of the first actual “chapter” book I read on my own. It’s taken me years to finally find out what the title of the book was, because for the longest time all I could remember was the cover. It’s called Puppy in a Puddle by Ben M. Baglio. There is a whole series of these books about different animals, but this is the one I distinctly remember reading on the school bus in elementary school.

jane eyre coverI’ve read and adored so many classics, but the one that popped into my mind first was the brilliant Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte. Jane Eyre is a character that I resonate with so much, which is probably why this novel has had such an impact on me. She’s independent, intelligent, and isn’t afraid to stand up for what she wants. In other words, Jane is an amazing literary role model!

15507958Unfortunately, I think I’m going to have to go with Me Before You by Jojo Moyes. At the beginning of the summer I was very excited to read this, but then I heard so many mixed reviews about the movie and the novel itself that my interest gradually dwindled away. I might pick it up eventually, but it’s no longer on my TBR for the immediate future.

tfiosFor this one I’m going to have to go with John Green’s books, especially regarding the buzz surrounding The Fault in Our Stars. Yes, they are often filled with predictable tropes, but I think he handles them in a unique and thought-provoking way. I will always adore John Green and his work, despite the negative things people may say about it!

pokemon-tag-05-snorlax

a game of thrones coverDefinitely A Game of Thrones by George R.R. Martin. I’ve had my eye on this series for the longest time, but I have to admit that I’m a bit intimidated by their size. Every book is just so enormous! They seem like such a commitment, and there are so many books that I want to get around to reading. I’ll probably pick it up someday, but I’l have to carve out a good chunk of time to commit to reading it.

Jurassic Park by Michael CrichtonI distinctly remember reading Jurassic Park by Michael Crichton at night a few summers ago and it literally gave me chills down my spine. Dinosaurs roaming around in the dark, hungry and uncontrollable? Those little dinos that seem so cute but actually spit poison? The giant, bloodthirsty T-REX?!?! It’s a recipe for nightmares if I’ve ever seen one!

pokemon-tag07-nidokingqueen

jellicoe road coverTAYLOR AND JONAH from Jellicoe Road by Melina Marchetta. (Did you really think I could go a single tag without mentioning this fantastic book??? It just wouldn’t be right.) Unlike some fictional romances, I feel as though these two characters are genuinely a good fit for each other. It certainly isn’t a case of insta-love, which is incredibly refreshing to read.

pokemon-tag08-rapidash

IlluminaeI’m going to go with the first book that popped into my mind for this one: Illuminae by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff. The buzz surrounding this book in the bookish online community has been SKY HIGH, but it really is an incredibly fast-paced, suspenseful, thrilling read. The sequel is coming out later this year as well, so there’s plenty more where this came from!

pokemon-tag09-eevee

the outcasts of 19 schuyler place(Side note: this was always my favorite Pokemon when I was younger, and I think it still is! It’s just so ADORABLE.) This is a difficult one for me, because I usually don’t enjoy spin-off series in general. However, I do really like the many companion novels to The Outcasts of 19 Schuyler Place by E.L. Konigsburg, if that counts. They’re loosely based on the first book, but it’s still fun to see where the characters are at in different points in their lives.

My AntoniaWhen I first read the syllabus for my Cultural Diversity in American Literature class and saw that Willa Cather’s My Ántonia was assigned reading, I didn’t really have high hopes. However, I ended up LOVING this book! It’s beautiful and captivating and absolutely fascinating to analyze. It ended up being one of my favorite books we read throughout the entire course.

pokemon-tag12-legendary

10964I’m not sure if it’s overhyped, but I’m really excited to read the Outlander series by Diana Gabaldon. I’ve read so many glowing reviews of this book, and it seems like one of those series that people get really enthusiastic about really quickly. Time travel, historical fiction, and a gorgeous Scottish setting? Sounds like a recipe for an amazing story to me!

9822053Hands down the Penguin Hardcover Classics Collection. They’re all so gorgeous! I don’t normally prefer to read hardcovers over paperbacks, but for these beauties I would definitely make an exception. I love how each one is unique and personal to the book, yet they somehow all look great together. Imagine an entire shelf of these lovelies– oh, how gorgeous it would be!

pokemon-tag10-egg

27405403Even though I’m not hugely interested in science in real life, I LOVE reading science fiction. When I heard about Lily Brooks-Dalton’s debut novel Good Morning, Midnight I immediately knew I would have to add it to my TBR. Taking place in both the Arctic and a return flight from Jupiter, this story promises to be a fascinating one!

pokemon-tag11-lure-module

is everyone hanging out without me coverDefinitely Mindy Kaling!! I adored her first book Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? and I loved her second book Why Not Me? even more. Not only is she hilarious, but she’s also honest and authentic and not afraid to say it like it is. Her personality shines through her writing in a way that makes it feel as though you’re actually speaking with her in person. I’ll read anything she writes!

pokemon-tag13-server-down

24909346-2I don’t know if this counts as forever, but I’ve been eagerly awaiting the release of Gemina by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff ever since reading Illuminae over winter break. I can’t wait to see what kind of suspenseful, gripping, shocking plot twists these two writers come up with this time. If it’s anything like the first book, then it has to be good!

I TAG:

I’m not sure who has done this tag and who hasn’t, so feel free to jump on board if you’d like!

What do you think of my answers? What are your answers to these questions? Do you play Pokemon Go? Let me know in the comments section below!

Yours,

  1. Jane Eyre is such a brilliant book; it’s one of my favorite classics as well. I really want to start collecting the Penguin cloth-bound ones, and Middlemarch is definitely one of the most beautiful ones in their collection. :3 I know A Song of Ice & Fire is SUPER intimidating, but I always promise people that once they get into it, it goes by so quickly. Hope you’ll get to it soon. Great post!

  4. I love this Pokemon Go Book Tag! It’s so inventive and creative. Even though nobody tagged me, I just have to do it. I have brothers who have played Pokemon before, so I know a little bit about the game and he descriptions for each one made great sense.

  5. This Pokemon Go Book Tag is amazing, so much fun! I want to collect the hardcover penguin classics as well but they’re exprensive. I read Jane Eyre last year but didn’t enjoyed so much as i thought i would, maybe i was in the mood, definitely going to reread it some time.

    1. I know, I wish they weren’t so expensive, too! I was in a bookshop yesterday and saw one and almost bought it but then I looked at the price and was like “maybe another day.” :/ These might have to be ones that I ask for for Christmas haha 🙂

      1. Same! I also really loved Kittens in the Kitchen. That one and a horse one that I can’t remember the name of were my other favorites. Those books were so cute and I wanted to be a vet for the longest time after I read them lol. 😊

  6. This is a fantastic idea. The Zubat and Snorlax bits really made me laugh. I, personally, started A Song of Ice and fire and read the first three books, but they’re just far too time consuming for me especially with the television series. I know, it’s super lame, but I already have trouble getting into fantasy novels and 7000+ pages so far in the series and it’s still got a book or two left (maybe more, GRRM likes over elaborating everything), I’ll be in the same boat for a long while.

      1. I can say the TV series is like pure refined distilled essence of wonderful and it’s been getting better each season (some how).

        However if you’re interested in fantasy there is this trilogy, only first two books out right now and a charming novella centered around my favourite side character, called the king killer’s chronicles and it is AMAZING! This is coming from a “not a fantasy genre fan”. The first book is called “name of the wind” by Patrick Rothfuss.

  8. Me Before You did not have the expected effect on me. At least the book did not, I still have to see the movie. It’s a nice story, but it did not sweep me away or make me cry.
    I really thought I’d enjoy The Game of Thrones’ series, but Martin’s writing style is so heavy I know I would not have survived the first book, haha. I gave up before reaching the hundredth page.

    1. I’ve heard so many mixed things about Me Before You that I have no idea if I’m going to read it now… we’ll just have to wait and see! I don’t think I’ve ever cried when reading a book (I’ve teared up, but tears have not actually fallen haha) but I’ve definitely cried while watching movies!

  9. I love your picks for this tag! Illuminae and Gemina are both so good. Definitely some of my all time favorites! Love playing Pokemon Go too! I actually created my own Pokemon Go book tag before I found out about this one because I was so excited haha! It’s hard to play in my area, but I feel like I’ll have more luck playing when I’m back at school.
