#TomeTopple Readathon

I’m participating in Thoughts on Tomes’ #TomeTopple Readathon from June 5-19! The goal of the challenge is to read some of your big books.

Here are the optional challenges within the readathon:

1. Read more than one tome (500+ pages)
2. Take a graphic novel break (doesn’t need to be over 500 pages!)
3. Read a tome that is part of a series
4. Read over 500 pages in one week
5. Read an adult novel

I’m hoping to meet all of these challenges. Here is my goal stack:

I’ve read parts of The Faerie Queene by Edmund Spenser before but never the whole thing, and I’ve been meaning to read The Name of the Wind and Inheritance for a while.

For my graphic novel “snacks,” Rurouni Kenshin volume 1 is a reread (one of my favorites) and The Wicked and The Divine is a recent discovery.

I will participate mainly on twitter @bahnree but I’ll be here and on instagram @bahnree as well.
