August 4, 2017



I think that I might being a bit optimistic about my August reading. I am preparing to participate in not one but THREE challenges and/or read-a-thons this month. As I am also starting my graduate classes again on the 14th, all the good vibes will be necessary to pull me through. But with that being said, let’s get into the explanations and then the TBRs.

I will be participating in ARC August created by Shelly and Octavia at Read.Sleep.Repeat all August long, Tome Topple from midnight on 4th of August to the 17th, and The Reading Quest by Aentee at Read at Midnight that starts 13 August to 10th of September.

Since Tome Topple starts first I am going to start with those books that I plan on reading when Tome Toppler starts and some might correlate between the two if I’m reading particularly slowly.

Tome Topple TBR

  1. The King of the Wyld by Nicholas Earnes (502 pgs)
  2. The Shadow That Was Lost by James Islington (602 pgs)
  3. The Red Knight by Miles Cameron (650 pgs)


The Reading Quest TBR

One of the most interesting and truly unique thing about this challenge is at its core you have to pick either a knight, bard, rogue, and mage. Depending on what character you choose determines your path across the challenge.

For this challenge, I will be a MAGE.

As wielders of spells and witchcraft, these players will conjure and summon their way through the First Down path on the quest. Their tomes contain magic and whispers of alternate lands.”




A book with a one-word title: Starfish by Akemi Dawn Bowman   (AA) (MA)
A book that contains magic: Enchantment of Ravens by Margaret Rogerson (AA)
A book based on mythology: Akata Warrior by Nnedi Okorafor (MA)  (AA)
A book set in a different world: The Hundred Thousand Kingdoms by N.K Jemisin (MA) 

(if I have time I will also be doing the Rogue challenge) TBR for that to be added once closer to the start of the challenge!
