I am very proud of how I did this round, because I read two tomes. I expected to maaaaayyybe finish one, to be fair. But hey, one of these tomes has been on my TBR for eons, and it’s gigantic, like, it’s such a pain to carry, and move, and read. Houses can be made out of copies of it. You’ll know it when you see it in a bit.
And I read a whole lot in the last 3 days of this Tome Topple round, which I’m quite satisfied with. I really enjoyed both these ( very different ) books.
First one was Seraphina by Rachel Hartman, whose characters and worldbuilding will stick with me for a long time, and it’s one of thode rare books that kept me reading until late at night, and made me want to reread it as soon as I finished it, which is something amazing about books
and this is why I like the company of books more than people
Seraphina had really original dragons, and funny scenes, and a misfit main character, and for once the main quest is ( mostly ) agreeing with the law ! Who’d have known.
Next up was a book I’d probably never have picked up if I didn’t get Tome Topple’s small push, which is 11.22.63 by Stephen King. It was surprising since the beginning, and despite the parts where there wasn’t a lot of action, it kept me reading somehow
with black magic by stirring up my curiosity and promising imminent doom every now and then, and the occasional plot twist, you know, the regular enchilada.
When it comes to reading, it’s been a great fortnight ! It’s scorching hot in here ( literally 41° Celsius ), so if anyone needs me, I’ll be holed up somewhere cool with my nose in a book!
