I’ve had a great weekend reading a lot of smutty books! I managed to complete three out of the five books that I had on my TBR but unfortunately I didn’t manage to get to the group book.
The books I read during the Smutathon were:
A Whisper in the Dark by K.J. Sutton
Pretty Little Savage by Lucy Smoke
Famine by Laura Thalassa
This month I fell into a little bit of a reading slump. I don’t know I just wasn’t all that interested in picking up any books and wasn’t feeling inspired to read. I am definitely happy with what I was able to get to and I have high hopes still for December!
The Raven and the Dove by Kaitlyn Davis –⭐️3/5 stars
All the Stars and Teeth by Adalyn Grace –⭐️4/5 stars
Girl, Serpent, Thorn by Melissa Bashardoust –⭐️3/5 stars
The Toll by Neal Shusterman – ⭐️4/5 stars
The Kingdom of Back by Marie Lu – ⭐️2/5 stars
A Reaper at the Gates by Sabaa Tahir – ⭐️4/5 stars
Definitely going to count this round of the Tome Topple Readathon a success! I was able to complete 1 book during the two weeks that had over 500 pages! I definitely had hoped that I would be able to read more but I’ve had a busy couple of weeks and alas was unable to commit enough time to complete any more tomes. But like I said in my TBR even if I only read one of these books it would still count as a success and this book I had been meaning to read for AGES now so I am happy!
The book I completed for the Tome Topple is:
The Toll by Neal Shusterman
Didn’t read as much as I was planning to this month. It was a little stressful and I had no motivation to read for a good chunk of the month so I am pleased with what I was able to finish. I was able to get to three of my TBR vets though so I am going to count this month as a success!

As I said in my TBR post whenever I was in the mood to pick up a book I rolled and moved around the board and picked a book that corresponded to the prompt I landed on. For this particular readathon I only did 5 rolls, I was having a little bit of a slumpy month and I didn’t want to force myself to pick up a book just because it fit whatever I landed on. I did a pretty good job matching what I was actually interested in reading to what I landed on so I am pretty stoked with my results and this readathon. I thought it was a really fun, unique concept and I will definitely be participating in any future rounds. My rolls were: 8-9-5-8-5
