This is my first time participating in the tome topple readathon. This time it’s running from 16th of November until the 29th. The only rule is to read those tomes over 500 pages that have been lurking on your TBR shelf! I actually have tons of great big books on my TBR so I’ve picked a few books that I definitely want to try and read over the two weeks and then hopefully I might get to a couple more. There are five challenges for the readathon:
1. Read more than one tome
I’m hopefully going to fufill this challenge by completing the other ones and then I’ll have read more than one book but I’m definitely hoping to get to The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue by Mackenzi Lee during the readathon!
2. Read a graphic novel (still over 500 pages!)
This is the one challenge I’m not participating in. I looked through all the graphic novels I own and not a single one was over 500 pages and I am not planning to buy any so I’m missing this one out!
3. Read a tome that is part of a series
For this I thought I would pick up Illuminae by Jay Kristoff and Ami Kaufman. I’ve wanted to read this for ages and although its nearly 600 pages I still think it will be a pretty quick and addictive read.
4. Buddy read a tome
I’m buddy reading a book with my boyfriend and for this challenge we’re going to read American Gods by Neil Gaiman. This is one of the few Neil Gaiman books I’ve never read and I’m also dying to watch the TV series so hopefully we can get through this massive book during the readathon.
5. Read an adult novel
I’ve got a few options for this one but I think I might reread Red Sister by Mark Lawrence and if I have time pick up Grey Sister in time for Holy Sister coming out next year. That way I can be all caught up!
So those are the books I’m going to attempt for tome topple! Are you participating in the readathon? If you are let me know what you’re planning to read and if you’ve read any of these do let me know what you think!

I hadn’t realized The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue was so long! Well, I just got it as a gift this week, so perhaps I should read it for the event too.

Neither did I! I haven’t checked my copy but Goodreads says 513 pages so I’m just going with that!
