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.
There 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 Books, Lilly @ 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!
Are you participating in the Tome Topple Readathon? Any recommendations for some big books that fit any of the challenges? Let me know below!
