Read-A-Thon TBR

Tome Topple Check In

Hello friends,

First, unrelated but this week’s Film Friday will be a bit late (either late Friday or early Saturday!), sorry!

We are officially one week into Tome Topple and I’m not gonna lie, I haven’t done as much reading as I wanted to.

I started reading my first tome on July 2nd…FOUR days into the readathon. What’s even more insane is that I still think I can finish the seven books I have on my TBR.

But let’s jump into my progress update!

(Also, I left the info about the readathon and my TBR in this post, in case you didn’t see my original Tome Topple post.)


More info:

What: A readathon dedicated to reading big books. For this readathon, a “tome” is any book over 500 pages, though they’re pretty flexible. So if a book on your TBR is 480 pages, you’re fine. Also, with the exception of the graphic novel challenge, this readathon focuses on full-length novels (and audiobooks). Short story and poetry collections do not count.

When: June 29th – July 12th!

The Hosts:

The Challenges:

  1. Read more than one tome
  2. Read a graphic novel (still over 500 pages)
  3. Read a tome that’s part of a series
  4. Buddy read a tome
  5. Read an adult book

Honestly, I’m not using the challenges to guide my TBR. That being said, I can probably get 2 or 3 of the prompts done with the books I’m interested in. [Future Becky here, I can actually get up to 4 done!]
