It’s that time again for Tome Topple!!! I’ve always been interested in this readathon but never participated. Well that changes today (well tomorrow)!!
Tome Topple is a readathon, created by Samantha, where you read BIG books (over 500 pages). So those massive books that you keep putting off are perfect for this! The readathon runs from August 4th-17th. This gives you plenty of time to slowly trek through a larger read.
Tome Topple also has an official hashtag to include when updating your progress. Just use #TomeTopple to connect with other readers participating in this readathon.
There is also a Goodreads group if you would like to join that as well. I’ll link it here for those interested.
Samantha and her team have also come up with some challenges for you. The challenges are not required to participate but some readers like to use those as a guide for what to read. Feel free to join the challenges or read whatever you like.
- Read more than 1 tome
- Read a graphic novel (still over 500 pages!)
- Read a tome that is part of a series
- Buddy read a tome
- Read an adult novel
*Don’t forget to check out the Tome Topple Twitter page for those hosting reading sprints. If you don’t know what a reading sprint is, it’s where someone sets a time frame (let’s say :00-:30) and you all read during that time. You could then update your Twitter host on how many pages you read during that time or just stick around for the next sprint. It’s just a bit of encouragement to help you get through the larger books. We all read at different speeds so no pressure if you don’t read 50 pages in a 20 minute sprint.
For my TBR I’m thinking of trying to read just one book and going from there. Lately I’ve been in TV mode instead of reader mode so I need to be realistic here.
I absolutely ADORE the Red Queen series. I know not many readers enjoyed it but i’m a huge fan. It kills me that I haven’t read this book and I know just any day now i’ll be spoiled. SO that is the book I have chosen.
What book(s) are you thinking of reading for Tome Topple?! Let me know in the comments below. I hope you meet all your goals but if you don’t that’s okay too!! I say reading any amount is better than zero so keep that in mind. Hope you all have a wonderful evening!! ❤
