Tome Topple Round 12

Thoughts on Tomes on Booktube announced another round of the Tome Topple! I participated in round 11 and really enjoyed myself so I figure why not try and get through a few more of the tomes on my TBR!! To see the announcement and any information about this readathon click HERE! I am going to pick a tome to correspond to each prompt but I’m not going to pressure myself to complete all of these books.

Tome Topple Readathon TBR

I’ve had a lot of fun doing small little readathon’s throughout the last couple of months so when I seen that Thoughts from Tomes on Youtube was hosting another round of the Tome Topple I decided I had to participate. The Tome Topple Readathon will be taking place from midnight in your time zone on May 9th to 11:59pm in your time zone on May 22nd. I have seen this readathon floating around Booktube for a while now and I have quite a lot of big books on my TBR so I figure this was a great way to finally get around to reading  a few of them. I definitely won’t be completing all of these books but I am hoping I’ll be able to either become a Scholar or a Sage!
