The Tome Topple readathon is over for now, or actually it ends today. I had two books on my TBR, Tatiana and Alexander & Gemina. It has taken me so long to read Tatiana and Alexander, because the book has such a small font. My goal was to read 40 pages every day to finish it in the 2 weeks. I also wanted to read Gemina, but sadly didn’t have the time to finish it. I also choose to continue with the audiobook I was listening to before the readathon, Red Seas Under Red Skies. I didn’t put it on my TBR, but it technically counts because it is over 500 pages.
THIS IS WHAT I READ:
Tatiana and Alexander by Paullina Simons – Finished 559 pages – 4 stars ★★★★☆
Gemina by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff – Read 122 pages of 659 pages
Red Seas Under Red Skies by Scott Lynch – Listened from chapter 9-25 ca 250 pages
I really love the books I chose for this readathon. I really loved Tatiana And Alexander that book was beautiful. Red Seas Under Red Skies was also a great read. I don’t know what I think about Gemina yet, I hope I love it as much as I loved Illuminae. I read a total of 931 pages this readathon and I’m happy with that 🙂
THIS IS THE CHALLENGES I FINISHED:
- Read a Tome That’s Part of a Series
- Read an Adult Novel
I’m starting this readathon with Tatiana and Alexander. I read the first book 2 years ago, it’s time to continue with this series. I got sucker into the story pretty fast today. This read is addicting, and I really like the author’s writing style. I read to page 73.
I have been reading in the living room today. Usually I only read in my bedroom, because like to be alone with no sounds or distractions when I read.
Both of my picks for this readathon are paper books. So I choose to continue listening to Red Seas under Red Skies even though it’s not on my TBR list.
I didn’t read anything in T&A today, but I listened to Red Seas Under Red Skies.
I had to go to the emergency room, don’t worry it wasn’t anything really bad, I’m fine. I listened to Red Seas Under Red Skies while waiting on the doctor.
I have read to page 133 in Tatiana and Alexander. Wow this book is beautiful written. I rarely feel emotions when I read, but this book makes me feel so much, oh the feels.
Read a little bit throughout the whole day. Read to page 172 in T&A. I really really like this book so far.
I read to page 199 in T&A
I was out for dinner today. After coming home I read to page 240 in T&A.
I went to the library today, for the first time in years. You can read my post called A Trip To The Library + Library Haul. After that in the eventing I read to page 302 in T&A.
Didn’t read anything today in T&A. I finally started reading Gemina, I only read 16 pages. Ahhh the Hype I have for this book. Tomorrow I’m going to read a lot in this book, can’t wait. I’m already loving this book, I can feel it haha.
I have read to page 84 in Gemina, and wow I really love the drawings in the book. The story hasn’t really started, so I don’t know what to say about it yet.
I read to page 324 in T&A.
I didn’t read anything today. I’m falling behind now. I really want to finish T&A before the readathon ends.
I read a lot today to try to catch up on my reading. I read to page 402 in T&A. I can actually finish this book if I want to. Gemina on the other hand. I don’t think I will be able to finish it, and I don’t really want to rush it either. I read to page 122 in Gemina.
I read to page 459 in T&A. Omg this book is breaking my heart, it makes me so emotional.
I read to page 521 in T&A today. Almost finished with this book. Only 40 pages to go.
I’m publishing this post on the last day of the readathon, so no log for today. I’m going to finish T&A later, I have about 40 pages left in the book. I want to say that I highly recommend The Bronze Horseman series.
P.S. I stopped logging Red Seas Under Red Skies, because I think it’s hard to log an audiobook. I listened to it throughout the day like I usually do. Even though I didn’t log it, I did listen to it almost every day. At the end of the readathon I will count how many chapters I listened to, and approximately find out how many pages that is in the written book.
