#TomeTopple Read-a-thon TBR

Tome Topple is a TBR created by Sam over at ThoughtsOnTomes on Youtube, and this is a two week read-a-thon with a focus on reading big books.

Not that I need an excuse to read big books, but I’ve been a bit bad about it lately. It’s satisfying to burn through a bunch of little books and make my Goodreads numbers jump up but it leaves my awesome chunky books that just want love alone on the shelves. SO! I decided to jump on this band wagon!
There 5 challenges, as below:
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
And the read-a-thon runs from June 2- June 19th.

So what am I reading!?
Otherland : City of Golden Shadow by Tad Williams –Β This series has been on my shelf so long I have the later books in hardback, acquired not long after publishing by my mother. I have heard amazing things about this so I’m pretty excited to actually try this one.
Star Wars : Kanan Volume 2 This one isn’t actually in my grubby paws yet but it’s on it’s way (got the shipping notification from Amazon yesterday). I love Star Wars Rebels and Kanan is a great character, I can’t wait to pick back up with this graphic novel series.Β 
Impulse by Ellen HopkinsThis is kind of a cheese read. Ellen Hopkins books are prose and read super, super quick for me. In fact I almost used this one as my sub for the Graphic Novel challenge since these are usually such a quick read.
Deep Fathom by James Rollins I really enjoy James Rollins books just for pure escapism of them. However this one seems to take place under the ocean. Have I ever mentioned I’m thalassophobic? I’m sure it’ll be fine, psssh, nothing like reading a book about the depths of the sea to help me get over it right? Right?!
The Woman in White by Wilkie Collins –Β I’m already reading this bad boy on Audio so I thought I should throw this one in, since it’s quite a chunker. I have it in paperback and I’ll be bouncing between the two versions. Spooky Victorian mystery! Fun (no, really, Wilkie Collins is cracking me up)!

With all of these I think I have met all the challenges. Fingers crossed I’ll get at least one or two of these done! Is anyone else doing this one? What’re you reading?
