We’re over a week into Tome Topple and I’m pleased to say I’ve managed to topple one tome. I haven’t, as of this writing, started my next tome though.

If you don’t know what Tome Topple is, read my Tome Topple 2017 TBR post for a full explanation and a list of the books I plan on reading.

What have I read?

A Court of Mist and Fury on trishajennreads instragram

I reread A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J. Maas last week. I’m rereading it to prepare for the new book A Court of Wings and Ruin, which comes out on May 2, 2017.

This book completes challenge number three: Read a tome that’s part of a series.

How Much did I read?

Day 1: 75 pages

Day 2: 130 pages

Day 3: 87 pages

Day 4: 136 pages

Day 5: 112 pages

Day 6: 0 pages

Day 7: 84 pages

Day 8: 0 pages

Total so far: 624 pages!

Day 9: We’ll see how many pages I read tonight!

I did have two days with no reading. Crazy, I know. On Day 6, I was planning on finishing the book on my lunchtime-reading-break, but realized I’d signed up for a webinar about writing that fell over my lunch hour.  And yesterday, well, my long weekend ended up starting off with a ton of housework that reeaallly needed to get done. And now it is Saturday night – and I WILL READ.

What will I read next?

the luminaries

Once I’ve finished typing up this blog post, I will start reading The Luminaries by Elenaor Catton. It won a Governor General’s Literary Award and The Man Booker Prize in 2013. It’s going to be a very different read from A Court of Mist and Fury. I’m excited for that.  I like mixing up my reading every once in a while.

This book will complete challenge number five: Read an adult novel.

What have you been reading? Have you toppled any tomes?

  1. I keep wondering if I should check out The Luminaries … I’ve heard good things about it! And you just reminded me that I have the audiobook for A Court of Mist and Fury! I’ll definitely have to do a reread with it in the next week or so before the next book comes out. I LOVED that one! I think I’ll manage two books for Tome Topple … one audiobook and one physical book, but nearly 1,800 pages!

    • I’m only about 100 pages into The Luminaries. It’s beautifully written and I can tell it’s a very complex story, but it is a much denser read than I’m used to these days. It’s written in the style of the setting, 1860s.
