#TOMETOPPLE: Wrap-Up Results!

#TOMETOPPLE

Hey guys!

So the very first Read-a-thon that I participated in has ended. I had quite a lot of fun and I am proud of my results! For those that don’t know, Tome Topple is a two week Read-a-thon where you read as many 500+ page books as you can. There is no rush or pressure with this read-a-thon; you can 1 or 2 or 3 books if you like. There are five fun challenges you can try and complete. So without further ado, he are my results!

Challenge #4: Read over 500 pages in one week COMPLETE

The week of June 13- June 19 I read:

Morning Star: 252 pages

Saga Volume 4: 152 pages

A Court of Mist and Fury: 262 pages 

=

664 pages


Challenge #5: Read an adult novel COMPLETE

I managed to complete 4 out of the 5 challenges for this read-a-thon and I am so proud of myself! It was definitely a daunting one based around 500+ tomes, but it was very laid back. I managed to knock a very special book from my TBR, and without the read-a-thon I don’t think I would have gotten to it as soon as I had! I hope there will be another one in the future!

Until next time,

#TOMETOPPLE READ-A-THON

#TOMETOPPLE

Hey guys!

I will be participating in my very first read-a-thon this month. I was never a fan of read-a-thons because of all the pressure placed on reading as many books as you can in a short period of time. And as slow of a reader I am, it never appealed to me. BUT I have found the perfect read-a-thon for my specific situation.

TOME TOPPLE

Tome Topple is hosted by Samantha from Thoughts and Tomes and it is a read-a-thon for giant books. To participate you must read only books with more then 500+ pages. Tome Topple will run from June 5th (Midnight) to June 19th (11:59pm).

CHALLENGES

1. Read more than one tome (500+ pages)
2. Take a graphic novel break (doesn’t need to be over 500 pages!)
3. Read a tome that is part of a series
4. Read over 500 pages in one week
5. Read an adult novel

TBR

Saga Volume 4 by Brian K, Vaughan (Challenge #2)


You guys should join in too if you have big books you want to knock off your TBR like I do! I will be tracking my progress throughout the read-a-thon, so look out for that!

See you next time,
