I am going to be participating in Tom Topple this month (over the next two weeks!). Tome Topple was created by Sam over at Thoughts on Tomes. The rule is simple: read book(s) over 500 pages. My TBR is ever so ambitious hopeful, as per usual. Also: Slytherin reminder. Of course, my Tome Topple TBR is going to be bending some rules. (I just like to say this in case I do break the rules).
Warning: I am going to try reading some of my shorter books because I did not do so well this week in terms of my TBR. Perhaps I’ll change my mind.
I want to admit that I probably won’t succeed in reading all the things. However, I like having options sometimes. Even if it means that I’ll be somewhat indecisive. I guess we’ll cross that bridge when we get to it, right?
A Conjuring of Light by V.E. Schwab
The final book in the Darker Shade of Magic trilogy has been on my TBR for a few weeks now. The second book ended on a cliffhanger and I have been aching to read this one.
It is a huge book and I am intimidated, but that is part of the point of this readathon. Here’s hoping it’s a quick read. Also: I am hoping I don’t get a book hang over. But, look at what Blue Lily, Lily Blue did to me.
Spoiler: So much damage has been done. Dina has never been the same since reading that book.
Anyway, this book is part of a series, so this fulfills the challenge of reading a tome that is part of a series.
The Final Empire by Brandon Sanderson
At some point, I am going to have to face my Sanderson pile. Why not start now? It’s a 600 pager, and I am anxious to start yet frightened by it. But, I need this one to fulfill the challenge of reading an adult book. (Gasp! I am reading an adult book.)
For whatever reason, I assume that these books are easier reads. I am probably very wrong about this perception. Let me list them and discuss further.
Illuminae by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff
So, this book seems to have a lot of diagrams. That is why I assumed it would be short as an experience. From the reviews I have seen, this book is addictive. And in my head addictive =
And/Or: The Unexpected Everything by Morgan Matson
It’s a Morgan Matson book! I expect sweetness, cuteness, and fluff. And perhaps, judging by the cover, puppies. Who wouldn’t want that?
