Pokemon Indigo League TBR Pile #ReadThemAllThon

Hey everyone, yes I’m still here. I know I’ve been absent from the blogging world for quite some time and worse I barely read anything in the last 1 month or so (*gasp* the horror) so it’s a good thing Aentee from Read at Midnight created this awesome Read-A-Thon based on Pokemon games.

In fact, I was so excited to join this read-a-thon that I made a spreadsheet to automatically calculate my Pokemon CP as evidenced my this tweet:

What can I say? I’m all for procrastinating but too lazy to do math. Here’s a screenshot of the (nearly-)final version of the spreadsheet, complete with my Pokemon of Choice (Gastly. I LOVE Gengar, I’m so strange) and my TBR pile.

Here’s my TBR list in case some of you are reading this post in a mobile device and cannot see the image.

Pewter Gym: Lady Midnight (Cassandra Clare). I’ve been following of Cassie Clare’s shadowhunters series since the first one, so I definitely need to catch up on this one. I’ve been hearing good things about this book so I’ll hope for the best.

Cerulean Gym: Me Before You (Jojo Moyes). This was the book I bought before the movie released, but never found the opportunity to read (because I mostly read in public transport and I try to avoid ugly crying in public).

thunder badge

Vermillion Gym: And I Darken (Kiersten White). A brutal princess. The Ottoman Empire. A brother-sister relationship. Sign me up! Soo excited for this one. Was going to read it earlier, but I stop myself because it’ll be much more fun reading this one as part of readathon.

Celadon Gym: Outrun the Moon (Stacey Lee). A Chinese girl trying to break out from poverty using her wits in a place and time that condemned her to “follow the rules.” I think I’ll love this book.

Fuschia Gym: Saint Anything (Sarah Dessen). I adore Sarah Dessen books. Sure, after a while you might get confused which book is which since most of them have similar setting and plotlines, but they’re so entertaining and swoon-worthy.

Saffron Gym: Red Seas Under Red Skies (Scott Lynch). I recently finish Scott Lynch’s epic debut, The Lies of Locke Lamora and it was so wonderful, I’m rushing to get the second one.

flame badge

Cinnabar Gym: A Court of Thorns and Roses (Sarah J Maas). It’s about time, you guys. It’s about time. Wish me luck.

earth badge

Viridian Gym: The City of Mirrors (Justin Cronin). I actually need to re-read the first and second book because I cannot remember most of the story and characters, but I honestly think I wouldn’t do that. So let’s dive in to the finale and let my imagination fill in the memory gap.


I would be traveling for a week during the read-a-thon so I’m not sure how many badges I could get, but hey let’s stay optimistic for the time being.
Anyway, if anyone would like a copy of the spreadsheet I’m using, you could download it here:

download button
(Note: If you don’t have excel, simply upload the file into google drive and click open with google sheets.)

If you use the spreadsheet, please let me know if you have any trouble or find a bug in it as it might affect the CP calculations. Happy reading!

Version history:

update (August 14, 2016): current version is version 3 (readthemallthon_sheet3). If you’re using version 2 and would like to get the functionality of adding extra books (apart from the original 8), please download version 3 and follow the instruction to modify the version 2 spreadsheet.

update (August 13, 2016): the current version is version 2 (readthemallthon_sheet2). If you’ve downloaded the older version, please note that there was a slight calculation error where your pokemon might not evolve at 400 CP (it’ll evolve at 401) and the CP calculation not working for Magikarp/Gyarados evolution.

  1. Your spreadsheet is so insanely awesome. Thanks so much for sharing 💕 I hope you will have fun with the challenges. I need to get around to reading the sequel to Lies of Locke Lamora as well. The first book was so fantastic!

  2. Ooh tackling a big one with Lady Midnight! Good luck ☺️ You’ve done an awesome job with the spreadsheet – I’m so excited for this readathon with the whole levelling up business and it’s great to see other people are so involved! *makes spastic karate moves* bring it on!

  3. I feel the same way about Sarah Dessen! I haven’t read Saint Anything yet, so I look forward to hearing what you think of it!
    Good luck with your readathon! 🙂

  4. Heeey, I spot And I Darken and Me Before You! I hope you like those. And I hope you like ACOTAR too – SJM isn’t my thing but I’m always curious to see what people think.

    Good luck with the readathon, and HAPPY TRAVELS, WINDIE. Just gotta say that that spreadsheet makes the spreadsheet nerd in me giddy although I’m not joining in the readathon for the simple reason of laziness. 😛

    1. Your review is one of the reason why And I Darken ended up on that list. :p
      Umm yeah, I remember your ToG journey. It did go downhill after the second book, right? Actually, I only plan to reas ACOTAR because I’m curious about A Court of Mist and Fury because everyone said it was awesome, but I need to read ACOTAR first so there you go. Hahaha.
      Ahhh thank you Reg. I’m going to Bangkok for a week so I won’t be reading much but I’m going to have fun either way.
      Yes to spreadsheet! What are we going to do without them?! Jk. But I do love your blogging planner spreadsheet. It looks so professional.

      1. Well, to be fair, the first book wasn’t super great either for me… but I just continued reading mostly because a very bad case of FOMO. I’ll wait to see what you think about ACOTAR – glowing reviews haven’t yet changed my mind but heeeey, if you enjoy it I just might. 😛

        Haha, thanks! I had SO MUCH FUN doing that spreadsheet. And hope you have fun in Bangkok – can’t wait to hear more about it. 🙂

  5. Seriously like I said on Twitter BLESS YOU for creating and sharing that spreadsheet. It’s so useful! I really need to read Lady Midnight as well and I want to start Sarah Dessen’s books. Good luck! 🙂

  6. Great TBR! I really liked Lady Midnight, and I’m really looking forward to reading And I Darken! I hope you enjoy them both. 🙂
    I’ll definitely have to try out the spreadsheet! It looks amazing! XD
    -Amy

  7. Thanks so much for sharing your spreadsheet!! A scattered brain like mine NEEDS organisation to keep track of all of the maths in this ReadAThon *dies in numbers* I really need to read ACOTAR too; good luck on your TBR!
