Me? Joining a Readathon?? I’m honestly a bit shocked myself.
Longer books usually aren’t my jam — I get intimidated and worry I’m not reading fast enough [although this last issue is a whole other issue I will probably be talking about later], but there are in fact longer books on my TBR that I want to read.
I’ve got some longer books I want to read by the end of the year and I have a 4 day weekend because of the holiday.
Tome Topple is a two week long readathon hosted & created by Sam from ThoughtsonTomes.
This round is taking place from Nov. 16th (at midnight) to Nov. 29th (at 11:59PM).
These are the people to follow for updates and such!
- Books must be 500+ pages
- No story collections/bindups. (except for graphic novels)
While the main rule is to read 500 page books, these are here in case we need TBR help 🙂
- Read more than 1 tome
- Read a graphic novel
- Read a tome that is part of a series
- Buddy read a tome (check out the goodreads group to find a buddy!)
- Read an adult novel
There will also be some Instagram challenges… you can find out more information on these social media sites:
Phew~ Okay, now what to I’m reading 😀
A Conjuring of Light by V.E. Schwab –624 pages
Are any of us surprised by this pick? This book was literally the first thing to pop into my head when I read about this Readathon– it is the REASON I’m participating!
The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss — 662 pages
On a recent T5W post I put a poll asking you all to help me decide which of the longest books on my TBR to read before 2019. This one is the winner! And it came at such a great time!
The Books of Pellinor by Alison Croggon
The Bone Queen (#.5) — 416 pages
The Riddle (#2) — 490 pages
The Crow (#3) — 511 pages
The Singing (#4 final) — 496 pages
Yes, I’m rounding for most of these, but can we agree that they are still pretty extensive tomes??
And No, I’m not crazy, I know I won’t be able to read all of these 🙂 I’ll go crazy not finishing books all the time ^_^ But, if I can read 3 or 4 of these– heck if I can at least read A Conjuring of Light and one other book completely, I’ll consider this Readathon a HUGE success.
Will you be joining in with this Readathon? Let me know what you’re reading and if you have any tips ^_^ I’m also down to try buddy reading any of these!
Good luck and have fun!
