Pokémon Book Tag | via The Writing Hufflepuff

Long before Pokémon Go became all the rage and people started walking around even more glued to their phones and heedless of their surroundings, I discovered this Pokémon book tag on Michelle’s blog, the Writing Hufflepuff.

I enjoyed watching the Pokémon TV show and playing the games when I was younger. Last year when I couldn’t decide what to watch on Netflix while cooking, I decided to rewatch a couple of the old Pokémon episodes, which was fun and surprising because I’d forgotten much. These days, everyone’s playing Pokémon Go… except me. I’m already hooked on Sims Freeplay. I refuse to get hooked on another game, so I’ll hop in on the Pokémon fun by doing book tags instead. This will be the first of three (yea, I have time to kill). 😀

Your starter Pokémon — The first book you started your journey as a reader with.

Eragon

I’m going to mix this up and go with the book that got me interested in high fantasy and I believe the book that sparked that interest was Eragon by Christopher Paolini. I’ve always enjoyed reading fantasy novels, but until the end of college, I stuck only to middle-grade and young-adult fantasy novels. After reading Eragon, I began seeking out more epic, high fantasy novels.

Gotta catch ’em all! – Five books you really need to ‘catch’ right now.

Well, at the moment there aren’t any books that I really, really want to get, but here are 5 illustrated books/graphic novels/comics I own that I really, really want to read soon.

Through the Woods by Emily Carroll

The Sandman, Vol. 1 by Neil Gaiman

The Giant Beard That Was Evil by Stephen Collins

Journey by Aaron Becker

The Templeton Twins Make a Scene by Ellis Weiner

A legendary Pokémon appeared! – A special edition/signed copy you own.

The Girls

The Girls by Emma Cline

It was my pick for the Book of the Month Club and it seems like a special edition to me because it has the BOTM stamp on both the dust jacket and the cover of the book, and there is no price printed on the dust jacket.

Magikarp has evolved in Gyarados! – A book that started out weak but turned out to be really good.

Beautiful Creatures

Beautiful Creatures by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl

I liked the prologue of the book, but the first couple chapters bored me so I gave up on my first try. I’m glad I returned to it later. I enjoyed the story and considered continuing with the series; but as time passed, my interest waned.

Jigglypuff uses Sing! – A book that made you fall asleep.

Jane Eyre

Jigglypuff! My fav! 🙂

The most recent one is Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte. Toward the end, when Jane was on her own, it got a little boring.

Skitty uses Attract! – A book you recently fell in love with.

Velvet, Vol. 1

Velvet, Vol. 1 by Ed Brubaker

Velvet!! Velvet! Velvet! Velvet!!! I am in love with this comic book series about a female spy. It’s so awesome! I recommend it to everyone.

The Elite Four – Your top four favourite books.

I’m going to switch this up too since I mention my favorite books often on here. Instead, I’ll list 4 classics I enjoyed reading, two of which are favorites of mine.

Journey to the Center of the Earth by Jules Verne

Heart of Darkness by Joseph Conrad

Their Eyes Were Watching God by Zora Neale Hurston **fav**

One Hundred Years of Solitude by Gabriel Garcia Marquez **fav**

Your Pokédex – A photo of the books you’ve ‘caught’.

Well, I did a book haul recently so I’ll just refer you to it. Lots of pictures of books there.

Masterball – A book you need a Masterball for to ‘catch’ it – a.k.a. a lot of money.

Dali

Dalí by Edmond Baudoin

Dali will be published in October when it will be the most recent addition to SelfMadeHero’s Art Masters series. I think it’ll cost about $27.50, which is a little pricey for me but I really, really want it.

Tag at least five other trainers.

Now I know a bunch of you are playing Pokémon Go so if you are, I CHOOSE YOU!

  1. Eragon always fascinated me as a teenager, but I never read it! Everyone else was, though.

    Teehee at Jane Eyre making you fall asleep. Same.
    I loved Their Eyes Were Watching God as well. It is timeless and enduring. ❤

    Thanks for mixing it up a little bit. I'd read so many other people's tags that it was getting a little tiring, hehe. 🙂

  3. Aww thank you so much for doing my tag! 🙂 I hope you enjoyed doing it ^-^ Haha I get not wanting to get hooked on another game, but Pokemon Go is a lot of fun! Personally I don’t find it that addictive, I just play it when I go outside (and not all the time either since I need to spare my battery). I still manage to do other stuff, even though I expected it to take over my life lol

    Tom neale wrote island2-1self, if you noticed that I couldn’t remember the author’s name 😀

    • Lol, yea. Lord Jim. I haven’t read that one. So far, Heart of Darkness and the short story Youth are the only works by Conrad I’ve read and I liked them both.

  5. Aaron becker’s journey looks really good, quest and return should be a hoot too,

    What was Conrad like?, have you reviewed/read any other Conrad??

    In, “an island to oneself “, the author reads and quotes from “captain Jim”,
    i think it is called, or was it lord Jim?
    i should have checked 1st. :$
    Anyways, it sounded ok,
    Would be great to hear your thoughts on “heart of darkness ”
    🙂
    Cool selection yo
