The Tome Topple readathon is over for now. It has been be fun two weeks, and I read some great books. I finished 3 of the 4 books that was on my TBR. I read a total of 1777 pages and I’m happy with that. I was planning on reading another tome too, but I didn’t manage to get to it. It has been a very busy two weeks.
The Final Empire by Brandon Sanderson
- FINISHED – 643 pages – 4.5 stars
This book was FANTASTIC! I absolutely loved the story and the characters, especially Vin she was my favorite. The world building and the magic system was really great and interesting. Totally lived up to all the hype. Can’t wait to pick up the next book.
Blankets by Craig Thompson
- FINISHED – 582 pages – 3.5 or 4 stars
I usually don’t read graphic novels, since one of the challenges was to read one I choose to pick one up. I liked the story and the drawings.
The Book Thief by Markus Zusak
- FINISHED – 11h9m – 552 pages – 3.5 or 4 stars
I have mixed feelings towards this book. I liked it in the beginning, but after a while I found parts of the book to be a bit repetitive, and boring. I kept on zoning out while listening to the book. Even though I didn’t love every parts of the book, the story did grab me. How could it not when it is about a young girl and her family living in Germany under World War 2? One thing I really liked was the narrator voice, it was an interesting choice.
