Tome Topple Readathon – To Be Read

A tome is a book which is especially large, heavy and scholarly.  In this readathon, it is classified as a book of five hundred pages or more.

Here are the books I am going to read!





The Illuminae has an awesome cover, and sounds like it’s going to be very exciting and fun, and it’s part of a series, which is one of the multiple challenges of the readathon!

It boasts five hundred and ninety nine pages!  So it will be a very thick read.





My second choice is this one, by Stephen King:



Which I have thought about reading before, it’s a time travel sci fi, but I didn’t partly because it’s really long, so here is a good chance to make myself get on with it!


It goes above and beyond the five hundred page requirement, to eight hundred and forty nine pages! Wow. 😉







Now, you are supposed to read a graphic novel, as a break during this readathon, so I thought I would read Maddicts,




which is a great book from the teenager section of Violet’s Veg*n eComics, and I’m really looking forward to that.  This isn’t to say I haven’t read it before, I’m going to re read it.  There’s nothing in the rules about the books having to be new to you, just that you have to read them.  This is an ebook, so I think that is also one of the challenges, I can’t remember.

NB if you are Googling it, Google “Maddicts comic”




And then I will finish off my readathon by reading A Discovery of Witches!



Which I hope will be as fun and interesting as it sounds!  This is not too long, at five hundred and seventy nine pages.










So I hope you will join me on the tome topple readathon, it’s going to be fun!  It runs (I think) from the 7th to the 20th of April!  (Why so short?  I don’t know!)

What are you going to read?

Happy reading!

The best things to read and watch, with scuba diving, complex maths, comic books and friendship and chocolate vegan snacks

What am I reading?

I am reading a few different things right now, I’m reading the daily comic, Venus Aqueous, which is the fifth episode of the series.  In this episode, which is called Prison Break, I think, the protagonists, Venus, Jean, Adi and Joe are going undercover in order to infiltrate a prison, and rescue it’s inmates who are being wrongly detained.  It’s very funny, exciting, and moving and sad too.  There is a lot of humour throughout, which keeps the adventures cheerful, even though they are dealing with some serious issues.

You can read them for free at Violet’s Veg*n Comics, or you can buy the books on Amazon, except this is a new story, so I don’t know if you can get the paperbacks yet.

Venus is the main character, she has the supernatural power to understand fishes, whales, porpoises, sharks, turtles, anyone who lives in the sea, or would live in the sea.

I won’t say too much, because I’ve probably already said too much, but it’s a great comic which I think you’d really enjoy.

What am I watching?

Right now I am re watching The Big Bang Theory, because it is one of my favourite shows, and it is just so funny.  My favourite series are the earlier ones, because they were just so fun and fresh.  I like this show a lot, because it has intelligent characters, who like to do projects together, as well as have fun together.  There is always some laughter going on.

You can watch this on tv, or you can buy the series on Amazon, or in probably and DVD shop.


What am I snacking on?

If you know me well, you know I like to keep snacks around, because I am sane.  Only crazy people don’t plan ahead.  So, right now, I’m snacking on vegan chocolate crispy cakes!  I made them myself, and they are super nice.

(this isn’t them, I got this pic of the internet.  I don’t have a camera right now.) But mine look just like that.  They are made from Moo Free, if you’re interested.  That you can buy in most any place, Waitrose, Holland and Barratt, Or Holland and Barrett, or an independent speciality food store, or health store.  Just look around 😉
