I Like Big Books and I Cannot Lie #tometopple

I love a readathon! So I've signed up for the Tome Topple Readathon. From June 5 to June 19, I will be focusing on books over 500 pages. Kind of. Here are the challenges:

  1. Read more than one book over 500 pages.
  2. Take a graphic novel break.
  3. Read a tome that is part of a series.
  4. Read over 500 pages in one week.
  5. Read an adult novel.

So what shall I choose? Allow me to consult my shelves and library account.

So, okay. The only book on my June TBR that has more than 500 pages is (say it with me) The Distant Hours by Kate Morton, so I guess that's one I'll put on my list.

Also, none of the books I'm likely to get from the library have more than 500 pages, so it looks like I will be reading books from my own shelves. Novel idea!

Grave Mercy by Robin LaFevers - This kind of feels like cheating because it is a YA novel and there is a lot of white space on the pages. On the other hand, since one of the tasks is to read an adult novel, that kind of indicates that YA is par for the course. Also, it is a book in a series.

Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss - This one is huge. It is in a series, though. And an adult book, but so is The Distant Hours for that matter.

All the Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr - It is probably time to jump on this bandwagon, but we'll see what I'm in the mood for.

I have a few graphic novels on my library list, so I will read whichever of these shows up at the right time:

Delilah Dirk and the King's Shilling by Tony Cliff

Lumberjanes Vol. 3 by Noelle Stevenson

Ms Marvel 3: Crushed by G. Willow Wilson

This will be interesting, since I already have 9 books on my TBR for this month. It's not looking good for that TBR, right now.
