Tom Topple has started a few days ago. A readathon created by the glorious Sam from Thoughts on Tomes, this event is about reading big books. It is an opportunity to tackle intimidating stories. Naturally, I am breaking rules left and right. You know how unrealistic my reading expectations are.
Are You Going to Finish That?
I expect myself to passively read two books that are carried over from last week (and beyond). First, A Legacy of Kings by Eleanor Herman. This story has been a feat to get into and pursue. I am not sure if it’s my mood or if it’s the story’s fault. Nevertheless, I want to keep trying to finish this story.
In the meantime, I want to also continue to push on with Through the Ever Night, which is probably going to be a fun, quick read.
Okay, now, let’s talk about some tomes.
Adult Fantasy Tome
Brandon Sanderson is my go-to for this challenge because I miss his Mistborn world. I am moving on to Well of Ascension this week. My hope is that I remember enough from the book to continue seamlessly.
Eye of the World by Robert Jordan has been one of the most intimidating stories in my entire bookshelves. I have the whole Wheel of Time series. It’s time for Rand and the gang to take over my life.
Another possible tome to tackle is Cinda Williams’ Chima next book in the Seven Realms series. That book is called The Exiled Queen. Much like the Sanderson series, I am hoping I remember enough to keep going.
There’s No Way You’ll Get to This Tome, Dina
Other possibilities include Days of Blood and Starlight by Laini Taylor and The Knife of Never Letting Go by Patrick Ness.
What are your favorite tomes that you’ve read up to this point?
