Tome Topple TBR

Tome Topple Round is back for round Seven! I am looking forward to tackling some big books and clearing them off my TBR pile.

Tome Topple is a readathon created by Sam at Thoughts on Tomes all about conquering those big books that stare at you from the shelves pleading with you to read them and love them but they are intimidatingly huge. It is a two week readathon from midnight in your timezone

November 16TH TO November 29TH 2018

I  love participating in Tome topples and I have managed to get some great reading done. The community around this readathon is great, especially on Twitter and the Goodreads group which are filled with suggestions of Tomes and buddy read discussions. Twitter sprints are also frequent throughout the two weeks. There will also be Instagram challenges hosted on Sam’s Instagram.

This round I am focusing on clearing some books I have started but also to buddy read. The Goodreads group has a great thread of people looking for buddy reads so if you have yet to find one check them out. Below I have included the links to the Goodread groups from my buddy reads, if any of them are on your TBR please come join us!

My first buddy read is a book I have been desperate to read for months but couldn’t dedicate the time it deserved but Tome topple is perfect for it.

My Second buddy read has been gathering dust on my shelf for far too long and for some reason I kept overlooking it but as I have some heavy fantasy on my TBR I thought opting for something lighter would be a good idea 28356624

After finishing Skyward I was in the mood to try more Brandon Sanderson and I have had a few of his books sitting on my shelves so I decided to start at the beginning.

I think three tomes are achievable in the two weeks especially as I am participating in the One Readathon to Rule them all – my TBR will for this will go up tomorrow. But as I am a bit of a mood reader I have a selection of back up books that I might grab if I manage to finish these three or I am in the mood for something different.

That is my thoughts for my Tome Topple round seven TBR. I am hoping to update you half way through to give you my reading stats (November 23rd) and my Wrap up will follow on November 30th.
Are you participating in Tome topple? What book are you looking forward to the most? Are you buddy reading any of the books?

Happy toppling of those Tomes!
