Tome Topple Readathon Wrap Up

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:

  1. Read a Tome That’s Part of a Series
  2. 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.

Day 2

I didn’t read anything in T&A today, but I listened to Red Seas Under Red Skies.

Day 3

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.

Day 4

Read a little bit throughout the whole day. Read to page 172 in T&A. I really really like this book so far.

Day 5

I read to page 199 in T&A

Day 6

I was out for dinner today. After coming home I read to page 240 in T&A.

Day 7

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.

Day 8

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.

Day 9

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.

Day 10

I didn’t read anything today. I’m falling behind now. I really want to finish T&A before the readathon ends.

Day 11

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.

Day 12

I read to page 459 in T&A. Omg this book is breaking my heart, it makes me so emotional.

Day 13

I read to page 521 in T&A today. Almost finished with this book. Only 40 pages to go.

Day 14

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.
