Tome Topple Readathon #4 TBR

Tome Topple Readathon Part 4 is underway! Well technically it started on August 4-17, but I’m currently in the middle of a book and won’t be able to start this readathon until Monday, August 7, 2017.

As usual the readathon is hosted by the amazing Sam from Thoughts on Tomes and along side her are other amazing youtubers. Also, first time ever you can also participate in the Instagram Challenge that Sam has on her IG account, which I think is equally awesome.

The challenges this round is the same as the previous round and they are:

1. Read more than one Tome
2. Graphic Novel Break (must also be 500+)
3. Read a Tome that is part of a series
4. Buddy Read a Tome
5. Read an Adult Novel

For the buddy read, you can head over to the Goodreads group to see if there are others who are reading the same books as you. They also have a twitter account @Tome_Topple, where you can participate in games, reading sprints, etc.

Here are the books I’m planning on reading for this round of Tome Topple:

This time around, I’m not aiming for ‘Read a Graphic Novel’ since I don’t really have the attention span to read such a thick graphic novel. Also, I don’t really buddy read since I like reading on my own pace, and I never want to discourage people from reading at their own leisure.

So that’s it for me this round of Tome Topple and I hope I’ll do a better job this time than Round 3, which I totally failed!

Tome Topple Readathon

The third round of Tome Topple is finally here! I love this readathon because it encourages me to read huge books, as in 500+ pages. As usual the creator of this readathon is Sam of Thoughts on Tomes, and she has other youtubers helping her run sprints and things onΒ Twitter. I’ve done fairly well on the other two Tome Topple, but this one I feel like I’m so behind. The readathon has actually started, April 7 to 21, and I still haven’t pick the books I want to read.

Anyways, here are the challenges for this round of Tome Topple. It’s actually pretty similar to the other challenges from previous TTR.

  1. Read More Than 1 Tome
  2. Read a Graphic Novel
  3. Read a Tome That’s Part of a Series
  4. Buddy Read a Tome
  5. Read an Adult Tome

Here are my potential reads. Seriously, even I don’t know which of these I’m going to be reading.

I’m sorry that’s all I got. I don’t even know if I’m actually going to be reading these actual books, but I’m crossing my fingers. I’ve been on a long standing slump that started the beginning of this year and I’m not really sure if I’ll be able to read any of these.

I will try to look for a graphic novel that 500+, but last time I had a problem and most likely I won’t be able to find one I would enjoy this round as well.

Buddy read for me is also tough because I tend dance to the beat of my own drums and I don’t really want to disappoint other people. I usually read the first few chapters of a book to see if I’m drawn to it, before I actually proceed on continuing it. So I don’t want to say yes to someone and fail on them.

Anyways, for this round of Borrowathon the host has created challenges and they’re all pretty interesting.

I’m keeping my finger crossed that I’ll be able to read at least three of these books. I’m being realistic because I know I won’t be able to read all of them, but still keeping my fingers crossed. Plus, I really want my Lumberjanes to come in, if it doesn’t I need to grab something else for ‘A Graphic Novel’.

Let me know if you guys are participating in the round of Borrowathon and if not, please, please come join us and support your local Library!
