Tome Topple is a Read-a-thon hosted by Sam at Thoughts on Tomes. Below is the  announcement video:

 

This read-a-thon is going to take place over a 2 week period from midnight June 5th to 11.59pm on June 19th.

So the challenges for this Read-a-thon is as follows:

 

  1. Read more than one tome (500+ pages)
  2. Take a Graphic Novel break (doesn’t need to be over 500 pages)
  3. Read a tome that is part of a series
  4. Read over 500 pages in one week
  5. Read an adult novel.

 

Without further ado here are the books that I am planning to read for the Tome Topple Read-a-thon:

 

The Final Empire by Brandon Sanderson:

 

final empire

In a world where ash falls from the sky, and mist dominates the night, an evil cloaks the land and stifles all life. The future of the empire rests on the shoulders of a troublemaker and his young apprentice. Together, can they fill the world with color once more?

In Brandon Sanderson’s intriguing tale of love, loss, despair and hope, a new kind of magic enters the stage — Allomancy, a magic of the metals.

 

 

 

Illuminate by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff:

 

Illuminae-Cover

 

This morning, Kady thought breaking up with Ezra was the hardest thing she’d have to do.

This afternoon, her planet was invaded.

The year is 2575, and two rival megacorporations are at war over a planet that’s little more than an ice-covered speck at the edge of the universe. Too bad nobody thought to warn the people living on it. With enemy fire raining down on them, Kady and Ezra—who are barely even talking to each other—are forced to fight their way onto an evacuating fleet, with an enemy warship in hot pursuit.

But their problems are just getting started. A deadly plague has broken out and is mutating, with terrifying results; the fleet’s AI, which should be protecting them, may actually be their enemy; and nobody in charge will say what’s really going on. As Kady hacks into a tangled web of data to find the truth, it’s clear only one person can help her bring it all to light: the ex-boyfriend she swore she’d never speak to again.

 

Ms Marvel: Generation Why by Willow Wilson, Alison Alphona, and Jacob Wyatt.

 

ms marvel 2

 

Who is the Inventor, and what does he want with the all-new Ms. Marvel and all her friends? Maybe Wolverine can help! If Kamala can stop fan-girling out about meeting her favorite super hero, that is. Then, Kamala crosses paths with Inhumanity — by meeting the royal dog, Lockjaw! But why is Lockjaw really with Kamala? As Ms. Marvel discovers more about her past, the Inventor continues to threaten her future. Kamala bands together with some unlikely heroes to stop the maniacal villain before he does real damage, but has she taken on more than she can handle? And how much longer can Ms. Marvel’s life take over Kamala Khan’s? Kamala Khan continues to prove why she’s the best (and most adorable) new super hero there is!

 

I have chosen these books as I am eagerly anticipating reading them and they fit into the reading challenges. The Final Empire is an adult novel that is the first book in a series, that fits into challenge 3 and 5.

By adding Illimunae I will meet challenge 1.

Challenge 2 will be met by reading Ms Marvel.

The last challenge is to read 500 pages in a 7 day period.

I’m looking forward to this as, I generally do avoid bigger books. Lets bring this on!!!
