Tome Topple Round 9

Hey, it’s one of my favourite readathons! This readathon is all about reading books, so books over 500 pages and that’s the only ‘rule’ as such. This round runs from the 9th to the 22nd November. Which means it’s Saturday to Friday over two weeks, so be prepared for me to forget when this starts.

 

Challenges

  • Read more than 1 tome
  • Read the tome that has been on your TBR the longest
  • Read a tome that is part of a series
  • Read a tome in a genre you don’t usually read
  • Read an adult novel (aka not childrens, middlegrade, or YA)

Tome Topple Wrap Up

Tome Topple Readathon

Look at me in my TBR, being all optimistic about how I was going to do on this readathon. Did that happen? Not so much. However, I did get around to one tome in particular which has been on my TBR for ages so I’m glad about that. My TBR crashed and burned but two of these books have been on my TBR for ages and I’m glad to knock them off (plus they were both really good).

Actually all the books for this readathon turned out to be books I enjoyed when it came down to it, though some took a little longer than others.

Tome Topple Round 8

Tome Topple is also on Round 8! This readathon is focused on reading big books, so those books that are over 500 pages which intimidate you. I have so many books like this and this Tome Topple I am going to use the opportunity to knock some of these books off my TBR. Plus two of them are due back to the library at the end of April so I really have to get on them.

This round is running from the 13th – 26th April, so over two weeks. There is some slight overlap with Alphabethon but only one day so I’m not too worried.

The Goodreads group is here and the Twitter is here.

 

Challenges

  • Read an adult book
  • Read a tome that has been on your TBR the longest
  • Read a tome in a genre you don’t normally read
  • Read more than one tomes
  • Read a tome that is part of a series

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.
