I was browsing through the blogs i follow and spotted this awesome Reading Challenge!
It is an amazing challenge hosted by Aentee @ Read At Midnight. This will be a great way to get rid of some of the books on my Shelf Of Shame-ie. books that i have bought/recieved but not read yet.
So quoting straight from Aentee’s blog post here.
What Is It?
The Pokemon Indigo League #ReadThemAllThon is a 3 weeks long reading challenge based on theKanto’s Indigo League. Long-time fans of the series would recognise this as the first set of gyms Ash Ketchum had to conquer in his quest to become the Pokemon Master. Now you, my friends, will also embark on a journey to become the very best. Instead of fighting gym battles, you’ll be reading books instead!
When Is It?
The read-a-thon will run for 3 weeks between Sunday 14th August to Sunday 4th September.
You can sign up anytime between now and the end of the read-a-thon.
How Do I Join?
Create a sign-up post on your own blog/booktube/booklr/etc with the books you will read for the challenge below and title it #ReadThemAllThon TBR or something similar. Then add your link to the link widget below. Please add a link back to this post!
There are 8 reading challenges within this read-a-thon, based on the 8 gyms that are in the Indigo League. Earn a badge every time you complete a book!

3. Vermillion Gym: A Book With Thunderous Hype

6. Saffron Gym: A Book With Fantasy/Supenatural Elements
Saffron City is where all the Psychic-types hang out, so for this challenge, read a bool with fantasy, magical realism, or paranormal elements. Finish this challenge to win a Marsh Badge.

8. Viridian Gym: A Book With Post-Apocalyptic Setting
The final gym is home to a Team Rocket Leader (OK, if it’s been out 10+ years you can’t cry spoilers) and Ground-type Pokemon. For this challenge, read a book featuring a ruined, post-apocalyptic Earth. Finish this to win yourself an Earth Badge.
I will be reading-The 5th Wave
I am really looking forward to this Read-A-Thon and to cross so many books off my TBR list.
Let me know if you have read any of these books and as always, give me some recommendations,
ps. Pokemon is Nintendo’s, I claim no ownership but love the game greatly.
