Hello, lovelies! I’m here today to share how I did on the OWLs this year! The magical readathon is one of my favorite readathon’s every year.

Tome Topple Wrap Up

Hello friends! This readathon seemed to fly by! We hope that everyone else had as great a time as we have. Tome Topple is always fun and a satisfying way to knock out those big books on our TBR.

Read more than one tome

Amanda- I managed to read more than one Tome! See which titles below.

Antonia- I successfully read more than one Tome! See which ones below.

Read the tome that’s been on your tbr the longest

Amanda- Renegades by Marissa Meyer

Antonia- Unfortunately I wasn’t able to get to this one.

Read a tome that is part of a series

Amanda- The City of Brass by S.A. Chakraborty

Antonia- Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix by J.K. Rowling.

Read a tome from a genre you don’t usually read

Amanda- Serpent & Dove by Shelby Mahurin. I’m sticking with fantasy because even though all of the books I read for Tome Topple were fantasy, I haven’t been able to actually read any of this genre and really love it until this round of the readathon.

Antonia- I did not have time to do this category.

Read a tome that’s an adult novel

Amanda- The Kingdom of Copper by S.A. Chakraborty

Antonia- The Liar by Nora Roberts

How did everyone else do for Tome Topple? Let us know what you’ve been reading in the comments!

Somehow…I read thirty-eight books in the month of October. It sounds completely ridiculous to be able to say that. Like, obviously I have no life. Read this many books is partially due to being obsessed with the Vampire Academy Bloodlines series because I flew through the audiobooks. I also read a handful of graphic novels which are usually one-sitting reads for me.

How many books did you read for the spooky month? Did we read any of the same books? Leave me a comment and let me know!

Keep on reading lovelies, Amanda.
