Reading ‘Em All, One By One | Tag Time! The Pokémon Go Tag

This tag was created by Aentee at Read At Midnight! Though I wasn’t tagged and the Pokemon Go phenomenon has yet to hit my household, the tag was so cute that I just couldn’t resist doing it! So let’s go (pun absolutely intended)!


Honestly, my mom read to me all through my childhood and that’s what got me started reading, so I don’t remember which exact book “started it all” for me. It was probably some board book like Mama, Do You Love Me?


Harry Potter without a doubt! The series represents my childhood and not only was it incredibly magical (because, duh!), but it also taught me so many valuable lessons. The series really is a modern day iconic classic and I believe it will go down in history as The Book Series That Lived. Because it did. And it still does.


This is a tough one because hype generally doesn’t really bother me. But I think maybe The Unexpected Everything by Morgan Matson I guess. I wasn’t particularly interested in it to begin with because a) I’m not much of a contemporary kinda gal and b) the storyline just didn’t interest me. But the fact that it was so popular kinda desensitized me to the book. Idk *shrugs*


Oh gosh, hmmmm…Honestly, there’s a lot…Mostly contemporaries because I feel like most contemporaries are really repetitive. Soooo…Maybe something like The Boy Most Likely To by Huntley Fitzpatrick.


Outlander by Diana Gabaldon because dear god in heaven above those books are massive! And the font is small too! But I really want to start it because it’s so beloved and it seems really good!


Definitely The Diviners by Libba Bray! Talk about creepy! To make it worse, I went into the book thinking it was just a paranormal book and not knowing or expecting it to be a horror novel! You can imagine my surprise when thing got hairy!


I would take a bullet for Feyre x Rhysand. Just sayin’…


This is kinda hard for me to gage as I usually listen to audiobooks and when I don’t listen to audiobooks, I’m a painfully slow reader. BUT! I’m gonna go with the Shatter Me trilogy because a) I zoomed through that series like a champion NASCAR driver and b) it’s definitely fire-hot sexy for a YA series!


The easy answer to this would totally be Harry Potter, but I don’t want to repeat answers, so my answer to this question is The Shadowhunter Chronicles by Cassandra Clare. We already have two full novel series spin offs from The Mortal Instruments (The Infernal Devices and The Dark Artifices) as well as two full novella series spin offs (The Bane Chronicles and Tales from the Shadowhunter Academy) and two more novel series spin offs in the works (The Wicked Powers, which is a YA series spin off, and an adult series following Magnus Bane), but I don’t think I could get sick of this world and hearing new stories about it. #WishGranted


I think I was a tad bit surprised by how awesome Saga by Brian K. Vaughan and Fiona Staples was. Not because I’d heard anything bad about it–in fact, it was quite the opposite, I heard so many good things about the series–but because it was the first graphic novel I’d read other than Archie (and I hadn’t read Archie since I was 6 or 7) and I didn’t know what to expect. The premise was just so…out there. But it turned out to be an awesome series. Sometimes, when I read it now, I’m still like, “Whoa, that’s weird, man!” but I’m kinda used to it at this point.


Ever since pre BEA this year, there has been mad crazy hype over Caraval by Stephanie Garber. But you know what? The hype has yet to make me bitter cuz I’m sure as hell anticipating this one big time so it had better be good yo!


Those special house colored collector’s editions of Harry Potter in Gryffindor red and gold. Um, yes please and thank you! *drools*



Kingdom of Ash and Briars by Hannah West looks absolutely to die for! It’s a mishmash of fairytale retellings with a magical original twist! *grabby hands*


There is no question that my ultimate auto-buy author is Sarah J. Maas. I would buy a grocery list if you told me that Maas wrote it.


I have been waiting for Laini Taylor to write another book since the minute I finished Dreams of Gods and Monsters. And finally Strange The Dreamer by Laini Taylor will be published this September, thank the heavens above!

  1. haha this tag is awesome! I haven’t really got into this Pokemon craze yet either (‘yet’ being the key word). I totally agree with how creepy The Diviners is though – I’m currently, slowly listening to it on audiobook and I’m sitting here like I WAS NOT EXPECTING TO BE SCARED.

    Also – how have I not seen this special HP house editions?!! *runs to bookstore*

    Feyre and Rhysand give me all the feels, I completely agree with you there.

  2. I love this tag!!

    I had no idea The Diviners was creepy!! I’m definitely going to have to bump it up on my TBR now, haha. I was already interested in reading it, but knowing that it has a creep factor makes me even more excited.

    Also, I’m not sure if you’ve found out since you posted this but the release date for Strange the Dreamer has been pushed back until March 2017 😦

  3. I love this tag so much haha – Aentee did an awesome job of creating it!
    I totally agree with The Shadowhunter books by Cassandra Clare – just when I think I might finally have enough books, she releases a new one, and I HAVE TO HAVE IT GAH! 😀 All her characters are so well crafted, and the world building just blows me away haha 😀
