Hey Ho Bookaholics!
Long time no see my friends!
I’ve been waiting for that day that I’d have enough time and mental effort to come back here and share my reading life with you all; which up to this point has been pretty much non-existant. I’ve had to lower my Goodreads Reading Goal down from 50 to 23 books, as I have been stuck on Nevernight since New Years, and Uni has left me beaten and dying with only 14 books to my name.
But, Never Fear! I am back and reading and as determined as ever, taking part in the Tome Topple Readathon!
This Readathon was created by Sam from Thoughts On Tomes on YouTube, and it is in its 5th round! There are many hosts, including our very own Australian; Caz from The Little Book Owl. The hosts will be doing reading sprints on twitter @Tome_Topple, if you wish to follow.
The Readathon begins on Midnight of the 17th of November and continues till the 30th of November 2017.
There are five Challenges as listed below:
- Read more than 1 tome
- Read a graphic novel (still over 500 pages!)
- Read a tome that is part of a series
- Buddy read a tome
- Read an adult novel
All tomes have to exceed 500 pages in length.
I am beginning the Readathon with Tracy (@trufflereads), and we are Buddy (Re-)Reading Gemina by Jay Kristoff and Amie Kaufman. I already have a review for this book up on my blog which you can check out here.
The next book on my list is The Mime Order by Samantha Shannon. This book is a part of a series, and has been on my TBR for months now.
The third book I’m hanging out to read is The Last Hours by Minette Walters. This book is an adult tome and was kindly sent to me by Allen and Unwin. I really want to read it as it is a historical fiction and it’s just so thick it makes me smile 🙂
My fourth book will be graphically gorey. I don’t have any graphic novels in my possession that exceed 500 pages (though I would like to), so I have cheated a tad and gone for another book on my TBR: A Court of Wings and Ruin by Sarah J. Mass. I read ACTOAR a few months ago and I really want to be up-to-date with the series.
And finally, i want to add that I would love to finish Nevernight by Jay Kristoff. I only have a little over 200 pages but geez it has taken me a long time to get here.
If you too are participating in the readathon, or just want to tell me what books you are reading this month, drop a comment below! I’d love to know where everyone is at in their reading challenges.
Stay Happy, Healthy, and have a Lovely Week!!
Thank You so much for reading. I hope to see you all back here Saturday 🙂
