My Tome Topple TBR | 2017
I am hoping to partake in the round 4 of the Tome Topple read-a-thon that is happening from August 4 to August 17. The Tome Topple read-a-thon is all about them BIG books! Anything over 500 pages, not an anthology or bind-ups. I’m excited to get through some of my giant books that I’ve had on my TBR for the last year or so. Here are the ones I chose to read!
The first one is Winter by Marissa Meyer. It’s the conclusion to the Lunar Chronicles and I’ve been waiting to get my grabby hands on a copy from my library since it’s always checked out. The Lunar Chronicles is sci-fi/fantasy retellings of Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood, Rapunzel, and in this book Snow White.
The second book I would like to tackle is Grave Mercy by Robin LaFevers. I am kind of going into this one blind, but I know there’s some butt kicking nuns.
The next one is Illuminae by Jay Kristoff and Amie Kaufman. This is a second attempt because I wasn’t feeling it when I started it the first time. This is a fantasy that takes place in space and is formatted in a unique way, it uses email and chatrooms and documents to tell the story.
The last one I’m going to attempt to read is Night Film by Marisha Pessl. This is a mystery/thriller about a famous movie director’s daughter that got murdered and they’re trying to figure out who did it and how it happened. I had too started this one and just put it down because something else came up. I will be reading this one on my kindle since I can take this to work a lot easier than toting around a 600+ page book.
That is all of the books I plan on trying to finish, I have a few weekends off so I can probably get a lot of the reading done at home.
What books do you plan on reading this month? Are you going to be partaking in this readathon as well? Let me know what you’re reading if you are! Maybe we can buddy-read a book together that isn’t on my list!
