So I’ve come to the realization that I’m (maybe not so) accidentally participating in Tome Topple.
Here’s what happened: Initially, when I heard about Tome Topple a few weeks ago, I didn’t think I’d participate because I didn’t want to limit myself in regards to my reads; I like to go with the flow and see what calls to me. And I THOUGHT a few books I wanted to read next were short and wouldn’t qualify. But here’s the reality: 3 of the last 4 books I’ve picked up qualify. (And the one that doesn’t I think I might save for later.)
So, hooray?! I’m probably the only person accidentally joining Tome Topple Round 3, but I’m going with it.
Let’s back up. For those of you who don’t know, Tome Topple is a readathon hosted by Sam at thoughtsontomes (yes, I KNOW I just mentioned her in another post but I really do love her videos and we have such similar tastes and opinions) and a bunch of other awesome readers. Round 3 started April 7 and will continue until April 20. The only “rule” is that the books you read must be 500+ pages, aka “tomes.” There are also other challenges, such as:
1. Read more than 1 tome
2. Read a graphic novel
3. Read a tome that’s part of a series
4. Buddy read a tome
5. Read an adult novel
So, since all my recent/current reads are 500+ pages, I decided I’d join in. I may be late, but hopefully no one minds.
My Reading Plan:
✓ Wintersong by S. Jae-Jones (506 pages) > see my review here
✓ Warbreaker by Brandon Sanderson (588 pages) > review coming soon!
☐ Strange the Dreamer by Laini Taylor (532 pages) > currently trying to read
If I manage read all three of these, I’ll complete challenges 1, 3, and 5! All of these are parts of series, to the best of my knowledge, and Warbreaker is an adult novel. I’m really going to try my best to use this as motivation to finish Strange the Dreamer, since I’m struggling with it a little bit
So, yay! Tome Topple! I was initially intimidated, but I guess I like to be intimidated because nearly all of the books I read lately are 500+ pages. Apparently it’s a thing for me.
Are you participating in Tome Topple? If so, what books are you reading? Let’s talk!
