August TBR | Series Crackdown & Tome Topple

For someone who finished one book in the entirety of July, I'm really being overambitious for August. Two of my favourite readathons are coming back and I'm determined to go for more than the 10 pages I managed last month. For two weeks of the month-long edition Series Crackdown, I will be focusing on the Tomes on my TBR, so I get to do both. I told you. I'm gunning for it in August.

Series Crackdown

Series Crackdown is the brainchild of Mel over at TheBookMoo. We all do it; we read the first books in a series never to pick up its sequel, or worse, we buy all the books in a series and never start them. The goal for this readathon is to dedicate a period of time to tackle those books. Usually, this readathon is 10 days long, however, this round just so happens to be the 10th incarnation, and to celebrate, Series Crackdown will be going from the 1st - 31st August 2020

Teams are back for this round; I will be joining Steph's (@eenalol) Team Duologies and reading the group book: State of Sorrow by Melinda Salisbury. 

What I love about this readathon is how chill it can be - I just like making things difficult for myself apparently.

For more information on who Team Captains are, or for just more information, check out TheBookMoo's blog post here, and follow the official Twitter and Instagram account.

Tome Topple

Created and hosted by Sam over at ThoughtsonTomes, TomeTopple is a readathon for all those big books that we all buy and then giggle nervously over. It is THE readathon for fantasy lovers and bibliophiles everywhere.

Starting August 8th - August 21st, the goal is to read books 500 pages or longer. And like the Series Crackdown, Tome Topple is just as chill. There are challenges that you can participate in, but because I am aiming for all of the challenges in the other readathon, I'll be focusing on reading big books and having fun.

Those books include:

  • Blood Upon the Sands by Bradley Beaulieu
  • The Ruin of Kings by Jenn Lyons
  • The Fifth Season by N.K. Jemison
  • The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes by Suzanne Collins
