Tome Topple Readathon TBR

Sam from Thoughts on Tomes is hosting the first ever Tome Topple Readathon from June 5th to June 19th. The Readathon consists in reading big books (500+ pages) and reading as many pages as possible. The challenge is tackling those books that we are sometimes afraid to pick up because they’re really long. Today (June 4th) is the last day to sign up if you want to participate in an international giveaway of a 500+ book. You don’t have to sign up to participate in the readathon, that’s just for the giveaway.

To make things even more fun, Sam has created some challenges that you can try to accomplish if you want, although it’s not mandatory. Keep in mind that you can pick something that fits more than one challenge.

  1. Read more than one big book.
  2. Take a graphic novel break.
  3. Read a tome that is part of a series.
  4. Read over 500 pages in one week.
  5. Read an adult novel.

I decided to join in and here’s the list of books I’m hoping to get through:

I think each of the books represents its genre pretty well and I’ve enjoyed them all very much, so I hope that you can pick any of these up and give them a chance. Go ahead and check them out:

Another week, another Top Ten Tuesday, a meme created by The Broke and the Bookish. This time the topic is books I feel differently about after time has passed, like loving them less, liking them more, having mixed feelings or being indifferent about them. I’m constantly rethinking my ratings, so I’m glad to have a list to sort some of the books out! Check out my picks:

Top Ten Tuesday: Books I picked up on a whim

Hello there! Today I’ll be participating in the meme created by The Broke and the Bookish called Top Ten Tuesdays. This time the topic is Books I Picked Up On A Whim, which means books that I’ve decided to read without knowing much about. I’ve done this quite a bit and I think it’s really fun to do! In my experience, you get really pleasant surprises. Check out my picks:
