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.

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)

Tome Topple Readathon

Another round of Tome Topple! This readathon focuses on big books, so books over 500 pages. It lasts for two weeks and, as the intro video says, it focuses more on page number than number of books read. This round takes place 4th August – 17th August so be prepared for me to get the dates confused. However, I have a long haul flight in this time (20 hours on a plane in economy, help me) so I should get at least one book done. Along with the twelve hour train journey.

Challenges

1. Read more than 1 tome
2. Read a graphic novel (still over 500 pages!)
3. Read a tome that is part of a series
4. Buddy read a tome
5. Read an adult novel
