It’s that time of year again ladies and gentleman. Another round of the Tome Topple Readathon will be soon upon us. It’s time for discussions of possible to be read piles, and I wanted to share what I will potentially be reading with you.
If you have never heard of Tome Topple, this is a readathon run by Thoughts on Tomes (you can find her YouTube channel and original video here). The readathon is focused on tackling those giant tomes we all want to read but might be slightly intimidating due to its side. Every book read must be at least 500 pages long, or at least close to 500 pages. There are some fun challenges for the readathon as well.
This year’s Tome Topple is running from June 29, 2018 to July 12, 2018.
- Read more than 1 tome
- Read a graphic novel (over 500 pages)
- Read a tome that is part of a series
- Buddy read a tome
- Read an adult novel
There are also some Instagram based bonus challenges for those with Instagram accounts. These can be found on the Instagram account for Thoughts on Tomes once the readathon begins, and usually have one photo based challenge per day.
I have a few hefty books that have been lingering on my TBR pile for a while. Here is my list.
- Prophets of the Ghost Ants by Clark Thomas Carlton
- The Poppy War by R.F. Kuang
- Jade City by Fonda Lee
- Trigun Maximum Omnibus Volume 1 by Yasuhiro Nightow
Some of these have been sitting on my shelves for quite some time. Most notable of these is Trigun Maximum Omnibus Volume 1, which I’ve had since I watched the Trigun anime way, way back in the day. It’s been a long time coming, and I’ll most likely be reading this manga first. As for the others, hopefully I’ll get through all of them. Novels generally take me longer to read as opposed to manga due to the inherent nature of a novel. Last year I didn’t manage to read all of the books on my Tome Topple TBR. Hopefully, this time, I will.
