Tome Topple Round 7

This is one of my favourite readathons, even if I haven’t done too well in the last few rounds of this readathon. This readathon is all about reading books over 500 pages because they can be a little intimidating and sometimes you put them off because there are other books to read and you’re worried it might put you in a reading slump. Or maybe that’s just me.

Anyway, this round goes from the 16th November to the 29th November and it starts for you in your time zone.  The Goodreads group is here.

The challenges don’t change from round to round but I haven’t managed to complete all of them in any of the rounds so it’s always a good one to aim for.

 

Challenges

  1. Read more than one tome
  2. Read a graphic novel
  3. Read a tome that is part of a series
  4. Buddy read a tome
  5. Read an adult novel

All covers link to Goodreads.

October Wrap Up

October is all done! That was a very busy month, I was having to catch my breath as I try to prepare for Nanowrimo next month! Between Blogtober and Preptober, this was a busy month for me and I didn’t get as much reading done as I would have liked. I didn’t get half the stuff done as I would have liked but I put that down to poor planning.

And yes, this wrap up is over a week late but I’ve been concentrating on Nanowrimo (which I feel is going very well, it’s just other things falling by the wayside) but I’m hoping to get back on top of myself soon.

Borrowathon Round 5

I have several library books which are due back on the 16th so I definitely want to get to a good portion of them read before they’re due. I love doing Borrowathon because I always get out so many library books and this is the perfect readathon to get them read!

This readathon runs from the 4th – 11th November. The intro post is here and the twitter is here.

Top Ten Creepy Books

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly blog meme. It used to be hosted by The Broke and the Bookish but now it is being hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. This week’s theme is Halloween/Creepy freebie. I did some Spooky Recommendations a couple of weeks ago so this week I focused on the creepiest books I’ve read. My ratings for these books vary so much, but I think they all have tense, creepy feel to them.
