TOPPING THE TBR BOOK CLUB IS BACK // an announcement ft. our rebranding & my readathon tbr

Hello there friends

This is a slightly different post from me but I’m so super excited about this new project that I just wanted to scream about it over here.

If you’ve been around for a while you’ll know I started a book club with a few of my local bookstagram friends. Like really, ages ago. But everyone kind of got busy so we decided to take a break. It was later just my friend, Melleny and I, and we tried to get it back and running like a year ago, we yet again got busy. But you know, with all this time at home due to this virus, we thought well what better time to get the restart the book club. And omg I am SO EXCITED ABOUT IT!!

No, this post does not involve The Neverending Story, I just liked the gif…

we rebranded

Anyways, introducing to you TOPPING THE TBR – the book club dedicated to crossing books off your TBR. It’s a tough task I know. Anyways, this is the new logo profile photo that I FREAKING LOVE and am SO proud of, if I do say so myself. We just really wanted to put together a book club that is lowkey and easy and just have fun.

➳ Follow us on Instagram!!

our new readathon

We also have some other fun things up our sleeves, the first being our very own READ-A-THON… I KNOW. Can we get any cooler? Well, I don’t know, you’ll have to wait and see.

Anyways, so the readathon. Which we’ve very cleverly named the #toppingthetbrathon, which is just PURE genius obviously. We’re going to try to do one every month and they’re all weekend readathons (you can read as much or as little as you want). Our first round is happening THIS weekend – the 28th to the 30th of March (!!). And you don’t have any excuses because you’re at home and most likely bored so HA.

I highly recommend you follow us on Instagram because that’s where all the announcements will be happening and also because I’ve created some Instagram story templates for you to use. Here is the list of challenges and yes you can for sure double up, you can triple or quadruple up if you wanted to hehe. I told you we’re super lowkey and chill.

the april pick

*cue drum roll*

And our April book club pick is going to be…  CHAIN OF GOLD BY CASSANDRA CLARE. Ahh *internally screams* I CANNOT WAIT! Omg, I’m so glad that we chose this as our first read because hi, did you know that The Infernal Devices is like my favourite series of all time? Because yes that is correct.

I know I’m going to have ALL the feelings and it’s going to be so great to discuss it with the book club. Also, Melleny and I will be hosting Instagram live discussions on the Topping The TBR account and either of ours. That info will be announced a bit later though so TBD!!

my tbr

So I have a slight track record with setting TBRs, therefore I’m going to keep mine very open. I am in fact a failure at sticking to them and my moods change by the second so idk what I’ll like reading. What can I say, I’m unpredictable.
