Welcome to my Tome Topple TBR!
I’ve done this readathon twice in the past, it’s really great for motivating me to read longer books, even if I only read 1 or 2!
August 4 – August 17 (starts midnight in your timezone)
Books must be over 500 pages!
Read more than 1 tome
Read a graphic novel
Read a tome that’s part of a series
Buddy read a tome
Read an adult novel
These challenges are completely optional, but I like TRYING to meet them! I usually fall over at the buddy read & graphic novel challenges but that’s okay! Here’s what I’ll be reading!
The books in the picture above will be my (hopeful) TBR pile for this readathon. I’m hoping to at least finish 1, plus I’ve already started 1, so I have hope!
A Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue – by Mackenzie Lee
I’ve already started this but had to put it down in favour of review books. It’s funny, witty, and I’ve fallen in love with it. I’m just under half way through, so hoping this readathon will push me to actually get it finished!
King’s Cage (book 3) – by Victoria Aveyard
I’ve had this book since FEBRUARY. I was raving about it, then I bought it, and it has remained UNREAD. Why am I so crap at series. I aim to buddy read this with Sarah closer to the end of #TomeTopple!
Godblind – by Anna Stephens
I know this isn’t 500 pages, but it’s a review book I’ve been neglecting because I suck, so I’m not going to ignore it for the sake of being 3 pages short. It’s a grimdark debut fantasy which I’ve seen mixed thoughts on, so I’m looking forward to seeing what I think about it. Hopefully I like it.
That’s it for this round of #TomeTopple! It’ll intersect with #TheReadingQuest (another readathon) beginning in mid-August. So I’ll have a post up about that shortly, too!
I also wanted to participate in ARC August, another readathon where you just read arcs (old and new). Godblind and Gentleman’s Guide are both arcs, so they’d fit! Plus I acquired Gap Year in Ghost Town by Michael Pryor which I’ve started and am loving. And I think Godsgrave (EEEEEP!!) will arrive this month, too. So I may chuck some of my planned TBR out the window!!
Do you participate in readathons? What’s a long book on your TBR pile? Thank you for reading!
