So I am participating in the Round 5 of Tome Topple, I have loved this read-a-thon since it first started because tomes are amazing to read and I just don’t get to them often enough.
November 17th – 30th
It starts tomorrow and honestly I just found out that it is happening. I have a few books on my TBR because I am in a mixed reading mood, where I am starting books and not ‘getting in to them’. Hopefully this will change that!
- Read more than one tome
- Read a graphic novel (I will not be participating in this as I don’t want to purchase a book specifically for this read-a-thon… seriously trying not to!)
- Read a tome that is part of a series
- Buddy read a tome
- Read an adult novel
So those are the challenge, and although I wont be completing all of them, I do plan on getting majority of them completed this round!
On to the books.
I have three adult novels on my tbr for this round, already ticking off the fifth challenge, and each of these books are part of a series, ticking off challenge number three!
Academ’s Fury by Jim Butcher, is the second book in the Codex of Alera. I loved the first book and flew through it. I am hoping the second book holds as much promise. I also have the third book Cursor’s Fury on my tbr pile so if I want to continue straight through the series I can!
The Way of Kings Part 2 by Brandon Sanderson, I read part one a few months ago and although I had part two as well, it sadly disappeared and I have just replaced it! This is the second part of the first instalment of the epic Stormlight Archive.
A Storm of Swords 1: Steel and Snow by George R.R. Martin, this is the third instalment of the epic Song of Ice and Fire Series and I love every single word. Like most readers, this series intimidates me, mainly because each book is huge and the world is so complex and complete that I don’t feel smart enough to read it. But I have challenged myself to get caught up before the next book is released (I know, flexible goals!).
So those are the three main aims of the challenge, if I complete them all I have finished all of the challenges (as there is a GoT buddy read thread on Goodreads) except the graphic novel challenge but I am not even attempting them because I am seriously trying to just read from my currently owned books because, firstly, book buying ban, and secondly I need to start making a decent dent in my tbr pile.
What are you all reading for Tome Topple Round 5, are you reading any of these, need a buddy to read with? Let me know in the comments below!
Good luck all!
