It’s time for the fifth round of the Tome Topple readathon! I tried participating in the last round a couple months ago and it was a HUGE fail. I’m not discouraged, I’ll do better this time around.

To those who are wondering, Tome Topple is a readathon aimed at reading books over 500 pages. The Tome Topple goodreads page says:

The whole point of this readathon is to read big books (over 500 pages). You don’t even need to read a lot of them. You don’t even need to finish one. The point is that we are all reading those big daunting books at the same time and supporting each other.

The fifth round of Tome Topple is starting soon, it runs from midnight on November 17 to 11:59 pm on November 30. There are five challenges you can participate in during the readathon:

  1. Read more than one tome
  2. Read a graphic novel
  3. Read a tome that is part of a series
  4. Buddy read a tome
  5. Read an adult novel


My tbr is hella ambitious (isn’t it always?), and I’m not sure how many of these books I’ll complete, but I’m excited to try to read as much as I can.

The Goldfinch – I’m halfway through this one right now. I started, and set it down a year ago and still haven’t picked it up. I really want to get through it, so I’m prioritizing it and making sure it’s the first book I read.

The Diviners – This one’s a reread for me. I first read it two years ago, and loved it. The only reason it’s on my tbr is because I want to continue to Lair of Dreams.

Lair of Dreams – Getting to this one depends on if I finish The Diviners first. I’ve tried reading this before, but I couldn’t get into it because I don’t remember what happened in the first book.

The Luminaries – This is the last book on my tbr and one I’ll hopefully get to, but I’m not holding my breath. I’ve heard a lot of good things about this book, but it’s over 800 pages so I’ve been putting off picking it up. My goal is to at least start this book.

Are you participating in Tome Topple this round? Let me know what books you’re planing on reading! If you’re reading a book that’s on my tbr let me know and we can buddy read!

  1. Heck yeah for The Diviners and Lair of Dreams!!! Seriously, the series is too great. I am also planning to participate in Tome Topple– I think I’ll be reading The Fifth Season (which I also need to read for a book club this month) and maybe some nonfiction for Nonfiction November. Good luck with your reading! <3

    • I’m so excited to finally continue with the series, because I’ve heard so many great things about The Fifth Season, good luck with your reading as well!

    • Big books can be intimidating, I don’t read them as often because they’re so big! I agree, The Luminaries seems so intimidating, but I’m really interested, so I’ll give it a shot lol
