Tome Topple Read-a-Thon

So next week I've decided to participate in the Tome Topple Read-a-Thon, created and hosted by @thoughtsontomes (also on Youtube). To see the original video announcement you can click here!

The Read-a-Thon will take place between June 6 - June 19 and the idea for this read-a-thon is to get through as many tomes (a tome being any book over 500 pages) as possible. There are so many Read-a-Thons dedicated to reading as many books as possible, so it's nice to see one dedicated to reading as many pages of a larger book as possible instead!
There are also optional challenges to participate in: 
  1. Read more than one tome
  2. Take a graphic novel break
  3. Read a tome that is part of a series
  4. Read 500+ pages in one week
  5. Read an adult novel

My aim is to read:
1. The Bronze Horseman by Paullina Simons
2. Tatiana & Alexander by Paullina Simons
3. Saga: Volume 1 (re-read) by Brian K. Vaughan and Fiona Staples
4. Saga: Volume 2 by Brian K. Vaughan and Fiona Staples

If I complete all of the books mentioned above then I will have completed all five of the above-mentioned challenges! However, as I'm working full time and will soon have a shorter commute to read on, I'm not sure how much I'll manage here, but we'll see how it goes! Good luck to everyone participating!
