TBR Intervention Challenge [#6]


TBR Intervention is a weekly challenge hosted by Dani@RefractedLight, Anayami@Whatever You Can Still Betray & April@Books4Juliet

The goal of this challenge is to help each other (fellow readers and bloggers) manage our enormous and constantly growing TBR (To-Be-Read) List. The rules are simple and everyone is encouraged to participate. It does not force you to commit to more than what you can manage to read in a week or so, but participants are encouraged to read at least one book within a week. You are free to choose the book you want to read and commit to this challenge. You may post your entry every Saturday, at the frequency of your choice--EVERY WEEK or EVERY TWO WEEKS. However, we will sponsor this event regularly every Saturday.

Here are the rules:

1. Post the book(s) you committed to read in your last TBR Intervention post and tell us something about it. Did you finish it? Did you enjoy it or not? Post the link to your review (if you have one).

2. Post a book that you want to read and already own. Pick something that has been sitting on your shelf for too long now (6 months or longer). Commit to read the book in the next couple of days or week.

3. Grab the TBR Intervention Button and post it on your blog sidebar so you will be constantly reminded of the challenge, making it easier for you to commit. This will also encourage other readers/bloggers/visitors to join the challenge.

4. Add the link to your post in the Linky below and make sure to visit the other blogs. Comment, encourage, and spread the love to our fellow readers.

Last weeks TBR book:
Nevermore
Author: Kelly Creagh

So I finished this! I actually read it Thursday night into Friday. I finished it in less than 24 hours! I loved it! I'm really happy I finally got around to reading it before returning it to the library! Well, I'm gonna leave it at that and let you guys read what I thought about it in my review. Review: Nevermore by Kelly Creagh







This week I'm committing to read:
Firelight 
Author: Sophie Jordan

Summary from Goodreads: 
A hidden truth.
Mortal enemies.
Doomed love.

Marked as special at an early age, Jacinda knows her every move is watched. But she longs for freedom to make her own choices. When she breaks the most sacred tenet among her kind, she nearly pays with her life. Until a beautiful stranger saves her. A stranger who was sent to hunt those like her. For Jacinda is a draki—a descendant of dragons whose greatest defense is her secret ability to shift into human form.

Forced to flee into the mortal world with her family, Jacinda struggles to adapt to her new surroundings. The only bright light is Will. Gorgeous, elusive Will who stirs her inner draki to life. Although she is irresistibly drawn to him, Jacinda knows Will's dark secret: He and his family are hunters. She should avoid him at all costs. But her inner draki is slowly slipping away—if it dies she will be left as a human forever. She'll do anything to prevent that. Even if it means getting closer to her most dangerous enemy.

Mythical powers and breathtaking romance ignite in this story of a girl who defies all expectations and whose love crosses an ancient divide. 

I've had Firelight on my shelf since my B-day in September. I've been really wanting to get to it but I just havent put it in my schedule. Well, I am now! I'm done staring it down but not picking it up and reading it. Lol. Its coming off the TBR shelf this week!

  1. YAY, yay, yay. I'm so happy you loved Nevermore. I LOVE THAT BOOK! It's one of my absolute faves. Yup, yup.

    Firelight was good and entertaining, but it didn't grab me for some reason and I'm kinda ho-hum about reading Vanish.

  3. I haven't read either of them. It is amazing how many new releases I read and there are hundreds that I have not gotten to. Congrats at completing this weeks challenge.

  4. Firelight sounds very good. I like the cover!

    Nevermore sounds good too. I've heard good things about this book. In fact, one of my customers has read it and says it's pretty good. I like the cover as well.

    Great choice!!! Thank you for sharing them!

    (I'll be hosting Forever Romance Reading Challenge. I've seen your challenges and thought you might be interested to combine your challenges along with mine. Have a nice weekend, Brittani!!!)
