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