pokemon-go-book-tag

Yes, I’ve been playing Pokémon Go. My daughter talked me into it and now I might be hooked. So, of course I have to participate in the Pokémon Go Book Tag that was created by Aentee at Read at Midnight.

starters

My started for Pokémon was Squirtle because he is just so cute! Now I have all three, so I’m happy.

I’ve loved reading since before I can remember. My mom tells stories about me following people around the house saying “rea” when I was a toddler. The story she tells me I had her read over and over again, even though I cried every time was Snoopy Come Home.

The first books I remember loving were probably Nancy Drew Mysteries. I’ve been a mystery lover ever since.

pokemon-tag02pikachu

I have a Pikachu too. An book equivalent? A classic I love is The Count of Monte Cristo. I’ve only read it once though, it’s a chunkster.

pokemon-tag-03-zubat

It’s more Pidgies that are everywhere around here, and rattata, but I get the point. I can’t think of a specific book, but probably some popular YA series that everyone loved. Several have seemed maybe worth reading but then there’s just another and another and they all blend together and I just don’t care anymore.

pokemon-tag-04-ditto

I read cozy mysteries, do I have to say anymore. Each time the cute cook/receptionist/pet sitter solves the mystery that the police can’t, but almost gets herself killed by making a stupid decision. I love them anyway.

pokemon-tag-05-snorlax

I have a Snorlax, but he’s not very big, not like the at one that keeps taking over the gym down the road.

I have The Three Musketeers sitting on my shelf. At 704 pages, I need to set aside a fair amount of time for it. I also have The Bone Tree by Greg Iles on my list – 804 pages. Granted, neither are over 1,000, but still . . .

pokemon-tag06-gengar

Not much keeps me up at night. I like sleep. I don’t read scary books and I’m thankful the Kindle saves my place because I can fall asleep during the most action-packed scenes. Last night, The Rook invaded my dreams though, lots of people with special powers. Some just catch my imagination more than others, I guess.

pokemon-tag07-nidokingqueen

 

I actually had to look up what OTP means. I’m a little lame. And I can’t think of any OTPs.  There aren’t many true couples in most of what I read these days. Nicolas Fox and Kate O’Hare from Evanovich’s series, is the only couple that stands out.

pokemon-tag08-rapidash

I just caught a Ponyta the other day. She is so cute. As far as books go, I really enjoyed Flat-Out Sexy – fast cars, sexy men and a nice romance. I need to read more in the series.

pokemon-tag09-eevee

Eevee and its evolutions are some of my daughter’s favorites, and since everything I know about Pokémon I learned from  her, mine too. I never get tired of seeing Sherlock Holmes spin-offs, whether they be books, tv shows or movies. Yes, some are better than others, but I’m willing to give most of them a chance.

pokemon-tag14-magikarp

Amber, my daughter, had to explain that Magikarp evolves into Gyarados. She doesn’t really approve of me calling it “that dead fish.” The Powder Mage trilogy by Brian McClellan was surprisingly good. I picked up the first one on audio on impulse and loved it.

pokemon-tag12-legendary (1)

The Great Library series by Rachel Caine. I don’t know that it qualifies as overhyped, but people like it and I haven’t read it yet.

pokemon-tag15mew-mewtwo

I don’t really care much about collector’s editions. And I think Mewtwo is scary. That being said i would love to own the Penguin Hardcover Classics collection.

pokemon-tag10-egg

A Hitmonchan hatched out of one of my eggs the other day. It’s an odd critter. I can’t think of any debut novels I’m excited for. I’m sure there’s something, I just can’t think of any now.

lure

I have yet to use one of my lure modules in the game. I think I only have one auto buy author, Louise Penny. There are several others that I’ll pick up when I see them or when I’m ready to read their books, but she’s the only one I pre-order.

server

 

City of Miracles by Robert Jackson Bennett is due out next year. I just read the blurb the other day and I can’t believe what the blurb says. I can’t wait!! I’m hoping it’s not true.

Are you playing Pokémon Go? What team are you on? Who’s you favorite Pokémon?
