#TomeTopple TBR

Hello there, my fellow book nerds! Today marked the start of the Tome Topple Readathon! For more info on the Readathon, check out the Goodreads Group!

  • The Tome Topple Readathon starts in your time zone on November 18 and ends at 11:59pm on December 1.
  • The goal is to read big books (books over 500 pages).
  • No requirement to complete any books… just read!
  • Keep in touch on social media using #TomeTopple.

how-it-works-2There are five challenges you can participate in during the Readathon. These are by no means a requirement, they’re just for some extra fun! If you would like to check the challenges out for yourself, head over to Sam @ Thoughts on Tomes, who will be one of the many hosts for this Readathon.

1. Read more than one tome

2. Read a graphic novel (over 500 pages, of course)

3. Read a tome that’s part of a series

4. Buddy Read a tome

5. Read an adult novel

Now… for the simple fact that I’m not very good (ok, I’m terrible) at sticking to my “to-be-read” lists, I’m not gonna make a huge list of books I plan to read in the next two weeks… because more than likely, I won’t stick to it. (My mind/mood changes too much!)

Right now, I’m buddy reading a tome, Crooked Kingdom by Leigh Bardugo (536 pgs),  with three wonderful blogging buddies: Jill @ Rant and Rave About BooksLilly @ Lair of Books, and Melissa @ Book Nerd Momo.

I was thrilled when I saw that this book fits a couple of the challenges: read a tome that’s part of a series & buddy read a tome! I’m only a couple chapters in right now, but it’s starting off great and keeping my attention! I’m so glad I’m able to experience this series with some of my favorite bloggers. (Psst… check out Jill’s review and my review on Six of Crows, if you haven’t yet!)

As for what else I plan to read for this Readathon…

I honestly do not have a clue yet. There are so many “big books” out there to choose from… who knows what I’ll choose to read within the next two weeks! I guess it’ll be a surprise for the both of us!

  1. I know a big book that will also fit what you’re looking for. Do you have a copy of The Diviners? That book is huge. You got a Stephen King novel in your package from Europe, right? One of his books would definitely fit the challenge. Thanks for the shout out, girlie! 😘 I am so behind on everything right now. I still haven’t read a word of CK. I feel like such a delinquent. 😂 I’m planning to do some power reading late to make up for being so behind. 📚☕️😴😎 Late night binge reading! 🙌

    1. I’ve been wanting to read The Diviners FOREVER!! And yes, I won Stephen King’s Misery from the giveaway. Another good option! Thanks so much! And I wouldn’t worry too much about being behind because I am too! But I always am, aren’t I? Lol. 😂 I’m almost to chapter 3 in CK, so not too bad I guess. It’s AMAZINGLY FANTABULOUS so far. Just sayin’… 😜

      1. I’ve had a Kindle copy of The Diviners for over a year now. I think I avoided it because of the size. Misery is an AMAZING book! I read it as a kid (which sounds crazy to say.) I read a lot of King when I was younger. I am way behind on CK. My book is like a soul sucking vampire. So many things to do I can’t even think straight. That’s okay. We can make up our time later on. Lilly is plowing through that book. And Melissa isn’t too far behind. I bet I will do the same thing. You know I’ll be racing to get to my Kaz chapters. 🙂 Ooh fantabulous that’s one of my fave words. A few hours from now I plan to start reading. I can’t wait. 🙂

      2. I’ve only watched Misery, so I can’t wait to see how the book turns out. Sorry about all the stress of your book. But still… I’m so excited for you!! I hope everyone reads it and loves it! Yes, Lilly is flying through CK. She’ll definitely be finished way before me, I’d say. Lol. I’m about to get back into the book now. ☺️

      3. Thanks, Megan! 🙂 I completely underestimated the time it takes even though I did know what to expect. It’s the website. I’m blaming that. lol I’m going nowhere fast with CK. It’s still on my bed unopened. 😂 I’m hoping later.

  2. I wish I could in on this one, but I have a birthday party to throw for a special little man and will be spending some much needed quality time with him before he has to leave to visit his day next week. Then I have a few things with holidays and some scheduled reviews.. meh. We will see, you never know 😉

    1. The Readathon is going ok. I’m only in chapter 5 of Crooked Kingdom, but the book is really awesome so far. I’ve just been so busy, it’s crazy! I’m hoping to knock out a big chunk in the next day or so. But this will probably be the only book I finish for the Readathon. It started off at a much faster pace than Six of Crows, and I really like that about this book.

  3. I’m sure what I’ll be reading next will probably be considered a Tome, but I hate that I can’t do readathons right now! It sounds fun that you’re doing it with Jillian, Lily, Gretchen, and Melissa! Good luck!
