Today I’m excited to share with you one of the events I’ll be participating in this month, Bookemon!! Bookemon is a BookTube event hosted by booktubers MEGAN OF TOME INFINITY, SAM OF SARCASM AND SCI-FI, JADE OF JADED READER, STEF OF NOVELTEA CORNER, SARAH OF NOVEL SARAH-NDIPITY, and ERIK OF BREAKEVEN BOOKS. This is an event inspired, of course, by Pokemon, with the goal of beating Team Rocket’s 1,000,000 health points. To gain Combat Points, you can participate in a variety of team challenges (I’m team Mystic), and other prompts based on Pokemon types to get more points. You can find more information on the prompts and overall challenge with this document.
My Bookemon buddy is Rapidash–called Rhymedash in this challenge–both because I love Ponyta and because fire types Pokemon get a 250 CP bonus for reading standalones, which I read a lot of.
My main goal for this challenge is to at the very least complete all of the team prompts. Within each book, I’ll definitely be able to do a lot of the extra Pokemon type prompts, so I’m not going to bother sharing books for each individual prompt that I want to read. But, here are are some of the books I want to read for each of the team prompts:
blue team: read a book featuring a blue cover
I probably have a few on my TBR to fit this, but as of now I’ve already completed this one with Nikita Gill’s poetry collection, FIERCE FAIRYTALES.
logical: read a book you know you should get to
I’m going with BEACH READ, my BOTM pick from last month, for this one. I may also read another previous BOTM book, ANNA K., for this prompt, which also counts for the blue prompt.
gym training: read a book from the library or your owned tbr
I will continue the THREE DARK CROWNS series with TWO DARK REIGNS and FIVE DARK FATES.
mystic group book
The group book for Team Mystic is THE TEN THOUSAND DOORS OF JANUARY, which I actually own.
blanche’s mission: a book that is set in another world
I may also end up counting one of the THREE DARK CROWNS books for this prompt.
articuno: read a book about or based on middle eastern mythology or culture
I will be reading GIRL, SERPENT, THORN for this one, which is a sapphic fantasy based on Persian mythology.
