Tome Topple Wrap Up

This was a far more successful tome topple readathon for me than the last one because I managed to get through two books I have owned for a while and have been on my TBR for even longer.

Tome Topple Readathon

  • Read more than 1 tome

Almost but I had a hundred pages of The Grace of Kings left at the end of the readathon.

  • Read a graphic novel

Nope, but I wasn’t expecting to anyway.

  • Read a book that is part of a series

The Grace of Kings (The Dandelion Dynasty, #1)

The Grace of Kings is an epic fantasy book with an amazingly detailed setting. I found the writing easy to get along with, though it is starting to drag in the second half of the book. While I am going to finish it, I won’t be continuing the series, mostly because of the lack of female characters and how the existing women in the book are treated.

  • Buddy read a tome
  • Read an adult novel

The Well of Ascension (Mistborn, #2)

The Well of Ascension is the second book in the Mistborn series and once again, Sanderson manages to write an adult novel in language that is easy to read, meaning the 750+ pages flew by as I got engrossed in the story. It didn’t blow me away as much as the first book but I enjoyed it all the same.

I didn’t get any books on my TBR read but I did get books on my general TBR read, plus two more library books read!

Did anyone else take part in this readathon? How did you do?
