Tome Topple Readathon Wrap Up

Tome Topple Readathon is about reading books over 500 pages during a two week period. My TBR is here, consisting of several books that I’ve owned for a while but haven’t gotten around to them just yet, mostly because I was intimidated by their sheer size.

So I did fairly terribly in this readathon because I didn’t manage to finish one tome at all! I read books but I didn’t start a tome properly until the 15th August and that was OutlanderHowever, Outlander is a book that I’ve owned for a while and has been on my Goodreads TBR for longer, as well as being a hyped book I want to see what the fuss was about. It started off quite slowly but I’m liking it so far, especially the amount of detail that goes into the description.

In terms of finishing books, I didn’t do so well, but it was the kick to get me to start a book that has been on my TBR for a while, so a partial success!

Outlander (Outlander, #1)
