It’s time for another round of the Tome Topple Readathon which is hosted by Thoughts on Tomes from Booktube, for her announcement video click HERE! This is kind of a tentative TBR and hopefully I will be able to get through a lot of long books in the upcoming weeks!
My TBR for Tome Topple Round 14 is:
Tome on TBR the longest & Tome in a genre you don’t usually read – The Seven 1/2 Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle by Stuart Turton
Tome You Started in another Round – The Blinding Knife by Brent Weeks
Tome in a series you haven’t read in a while – Shadowcaster by Cinda Williams Chima
Read 1 tome – The Lies of Locke Lamora by Scott Lynch
Seasonally coloured tome – Chain of Gold by Cassandra Clare
Tome with the most pages – Heart of Flames by Nicki Pau Preto
Tome by a BIPOC author – The Rage of Dragons by Evan Winter
These are five of my favourite quotes from the last five books that I have read!!
Come Tumbling Down by Seanan McGuire
“No one should have to sit and suffer and pretend to be someone they’re not because it’s easier, or because no one wants to help them fix it.”
Well Played by Jen DeLuca
“Some of us choose to settle in small towns; some of us have settling in small towns thrust upon us.”
The Fifth Season by N.K. Jemisin
“For all those that have to fight for the respect that everyone else is given without question.”
In an Absent Dream by Seanan McGuire
“If you want to help her, you need to help yourself first. No one serves their friends by grinding themselves into dust on the altar of compassion.”
Flamecaster by Cinda Williams Chima
“We spend so much of our lives waiting to be ambushed by heartbreak. Why couldn’t we be ambushed by joy?”
About a year ago now I did a post about 10 books on my physical TBR I thought would be 5 stars. I have now read all of these books and I thought it would be fun to see whether or not I was correct!
Ninth House by Leigh Bardugo – 3/5 stars a very slow build!
The Crown’s Fate by Evelyn Sky – 4/5 stars Magical, surprising & highly entertaining!
Warbreaker by Brandon Sanderson – 3/5 stars a very slow burn!
Frozen Tides by Morgan Rhodes – 5/5 MAGNEO!!!!
Vengeful by V.E. Schwab – 3/5 stars I liked it, didn’t quite love it as much as Vicious!
The Fifth Season by N.K. Jemisin – 4/5 stars better than what I anticipated!
Black Prism by Brent Weeks –5/5 stars Why did I wait so long???
Girls of Storm and Shadow by Natasha Ngan –3/5 Epic journey, dark magic, heart-breaking betrayals!
A Heart So Fierce and Broken by Brigid Kemmerer – 4/5 Loved the new perspectives!!
Wicked Fox by Kat Cho – 4/5 It was a rollercoaster ride!
