Tome Topple Readathon

I’ve decided to participate in the Tome Topple Readathon.  Basically, the goal is to read big books that are at least 500 pages long.  The Goodreads group can be found here, and the Twitter is here 🙂  This readathon is set to last from today, April 7, through Thursday, April 20.

There are also some extra challenges to attempt:

  1. Read more than one tome. – Definitely planning on doing that.
  2. Read a graphic novel. – May or may not happen.
  3. Read a tome that is part of a series. – Sort of.  Basically.  Yeah, sure.*
  4. Buddy-read a tome. – Not gonna do that.
  5. Read an adult novel. – I am only reading adult novels for this, so that’s pretty much completed already.

Right, so here’s the important part: my TBR!

The Crimson Petal & the White has sat on my shelf unread for years, so this needs to happen.  My reading of this also nicely coincides with Hulu’s new series Harlots, as they both deal with the trials of prostitutes.

I really wanted to read The White Princess before the show airs on Starz on the 16th, so I hope this works out.

*It sort of fulfills the third challenge because it’s part of the Cousins’ War series, which doesn’t really need to be read in order but is still technically a series.

I don’t know if I’ll get to Possession or not, but I’ve wanted to read it for a few months now.

I’m currently reading some of Mary Oliver’s poetry, which I’ll probaby continue to do during this readathon for a sort of break, but I am putting everything else I was reading on hold, with the exception of America’s First Daughter, because it does qualify for this readathon and I’m both reading and listening to it.
