Tome Topple is a readathon created by Sam at Thoughts on Tomes all about conquering those big books that are hiding on your shelves. It is a two week readathon from midnight in your timezone. This is Round 11 and it runs from
Saturday 9th – Friday 22nd
I may start slightly early as Friday is a national Holiday here in the UK and I want to dive into these books as quickly as I can.
It is a really relaxed readathon. The goal is just to read 1 tome (a book over 500 pages) it doesn’t matter what type of tome it is the goal is just to finish 1.
For those that want to be a bit more ambitious there is a bingo card. Which has a number of different prompts – each of which you can use one book to represent two of. Again they are fairly loose and open to interpretation. you can do all of them or none of them.
I have a large number of Tomes on my big TBR but there are a couple I want to get to sooner rather than later.
I am currently doing the Elderlingalong which is a readalong that is working there way through Robin Hobbs Realm of the Elderling series. This is book 2 in the first trilogy. I really enjoyed book one and I can’t wait to find out what awaits Fitz in this one. I have previously read half of this and then put it down and didn’t pick up again. Now is the time.
The Final Empire
I have some catching up to do on the Cosmere-along. I should have squeezed this one in last month. I really enjoyed Elantris and I have heard that this series is even better. I am hoping I can finish this during tome topple.
The Well of Ascension
If I manage to get through The Final Empire I am hoping I can catch up and read the Well of Ascension also. This would catch me up with the Cosmere-along!
If I manage to read all of these it means I would have read over 2000 pages in two weeks. I might see if I can find an audio version of one of the three in my library app. It would also mean I could tick off 4 of the boxes on the bingo board which isn’t too bad.
Will you be joining in on Tome Topple this round? I would love to know what you are reading.
