The next round of Tome Topple has finally been announced and I’m so excited! I wasn’t able to participate the last time around but I definitely plan to this time!
If you’re unfamiliar with Tome Topple, it’s basically just a stress-free readathon that focuses only on those large books that you typically push aside due to not enough time, intimidation, or for whatever reason. The only rules for this readathon is that the books you’re reading must be at least 500 pages long. The bigger, the better! There are a few challenges that you can do to mix it up as well, but they aren’t required. If you’d like more information on this then you can visit Sam @ Thoughts on Tomes for the official announcement.
Now on to my personal TBR for this round. I didn’t go too crazy this time around, as my reading has slowed down some this year, and I wanted to stay realistic for what I could potentially finish during the two weeks. With that being said, I really love how stress-free this readathon is so I never feel any pressure to try and rush through my books.
My Tome TBR
- Lair of Dreams (The Diviners, #2) by Libba Bray
- Titans by Leila Meacham
- Renegades (Renegades, #1) by Marissa Meyer
Tome Topple came around a really good time as I had planned to try and get to Titans sometime this summer. I really wanted to focus on books that have been on my backlist this round, and all three of these books have been waiting for me to get to for a long time. I just recently finished a reread of The Diviners, so it’s perfect timing to start on the sequel. And Renegades was one of my most anticipated books last year (still can’t believe I’m just now picking it up!).
And if for some miracle I’m able to finish the above three and have time to start another, here are a few back-ups for me to choose from…
- The Smoke Thieves (The Smoke Thieves, #1) by Sally Green
- Middlemarch by George Eliot
- Tower of Dawn (Throne of Glass, #6) by Sarah J. Maas
But let’s be real, I probably won’t have to even worry about trying to pick one from this group.
Do you struggle with picking up the tomes on your TBR? Are you participating in Tome Topple? If so, what books do you plan on reading? Have you read any of the books on my list? If so, what did you think of them?
