Tome Topple Read-A-Thon TBR


Hey There, Bibliobabes!

I found out (today) about a read-a-thon that's going to
be taking place in June. Since I'm spastic about read-a
-thons, AND June is going to be one of those "in-between"
months when not a lot is going on - I decided to ABSOLUTEY
take part in #TomeTopple hosted by Samantha at 


#TomeTopple: June 5 - June 19th


#TomeTopple is a read-a-thon focused specifically on books that are 500+ pages. That means we get plenty of reason to finally give love to our more robust literature! 

If you need a little inspiration for what books you might want to tackle (just in case you've already read all of your 500+ pages books), here are a few lists to get you going: 


Challenges


1. Read more than one Tome (500+ pages)
2. Take a Graphic Novel break (read graphic novels in between!)
3. Read a Tome that is part of a series.
4.  Read over 500 pages in 1 week.
5. Read an Adult Novel. 

My Goals


To knock out all of the challenges I've decided I'm going to try to read over 2,000 pages, or roughly four books with a mix between Adult and YA. Here's my Goal TBR: 

11559200 16054217 
7728889 13206828

Combined Pages: 2,273
Pages a day: 152
Series: Lunar Chronicles and A Discovery of Witches
Adult Novels: "Shadow of Night" and "The Book of Life"


Will you join us?

I have a feeling that this one is going to be a lot of fun! I hope you'll hop on the read-a-thon wagon with myself and well over a hundred other readers who are going to conquer their 500+ page books in June!

  2. Ooh this sounds really fun, I might have to join! I loved Cress and Shadow of Night. And I have quite a few 500+ books around the house at the moment haha.

  3. I love read-a-thons and this seems a good one, but the thing is: my 500+ books are scarce at the moment. But I'll still go through my pile to see if I have something to participate in this read-a-thon.

    Good luck & Happy readings! ;)
