TBR Intervention Challenge [#14]


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:
Halflings 
Author: Heather Burch

I havent finished Halflings yet but I'm pretty sure I will in like the next day so I'm still gonna pick a new book to read this week. So far I am enjoying Halflings. So far its looking like a 3 1/2 to 4 star review but I wont know for sure until I'm done. But like I said, I am enjoying it.








This week I'm committing to read:
Goddess Interrupted (Goddess Test #2)
Author: Aimee Carter

Summary from Goodreads:
Kate Winters has won immortality.

But if she wants a life in the Underworld with Henry, she’ll have to fight for it.

Becoming immortal wasn’t supposed to be the easy part. Though Kate is about to be crowned Queen of the Underworld, she’s as isolated as ever. And despite her growing love for Henry, ruler of the Underworld, he’s becoming ever more distant and secretive. Then, in the midst of Kate’s coronation, Henry is abducted by the only being powerful enough to kill him: the King of the Titans.

As the other gods prepare for a war that could end them all, it is up to Kate to save Henry from the depths of Tartarus. But in order to navigate the endless caverns of the Underworld, Kate must enlist the help of the one person who is the greatest threat to her future.

Henry’s first wife, Persephone.


And also:
Dark Flame
Author: Alyson Noel

Summary from Goodreads:  
In Alyson Noel’s most darkly seductive Immortals novel yet, Ever fights for control of her body, her soul—and the timeless true love she’s been chasing for centuries.

Ever is trying to help Haven transition into life as an immortal.  But with Haven drunk on her new powers and acting recklessly, she poses the ultimate threat—exposing their secret world to the outside.  As Ever struggles to keep the Immortals hidden, it only propels Haven closer to the enemy—Roman and his evil companions.

At the same time, Ever delves deeper into dark magick to free Damen from Roman’s power. But when her spell backfires, it binds her to the one guy who’s hell-bent on her destruction. Now there’s a strange, foreign pulse coursing through her, and no matter what she does, she can’t stop thinking about Roman—and longing for his touch.  As she struggles to resist the fiery attraction threatening to consume her, Roman is more than willing to take advantage of her weakened state…and Ever edges closer and closer to surrender.

Frantic to break the spell before its too late, Ever turns to Jude for help, risking everything she knows and loves to save herself—and her future with Damen …

Ok, so lets start off with Goddess Interrupted. I wasnt the biggest fan of The Goddess Test but I liked it enough to want to read the second and since I'm auto-accepted for Harlequin titles on NetGalley I decided to get it. I'm really hoping I like the second more than the first (because I'm optimistic like that). And seeing as I read The Goddess Test in like 3 or 4 hours I have a feeling I'll get through Goddess Interrupted in the same amount of time. Which is why I also chose Dark Flame. I really wanna finish The Immortals Series even though it fell really flat in Shadowland so I'm pushing on into reading Dark Flame. 

Ok, and just because I know a few of you have been very excited that I finally got to reading Half-Blood by Jennifer L. Armentrout I'll post my review of it for you guys! FYI, I REALLY LOVED IT! Lol. Review: Half-Blood by Jennifer L. Armentrout

  1. I have Halflings on my TBR (it was also from NetGalley) and it's good that you're enjoying it. Dark Flame was the last book I read in the Immortals series and I don't have plans on pushing through. I agree with you, it really felt flat and annoying... especially Ever. She's the most annoying lead character I've ever met. I hope you'll enjoy Dark Flame though.. and the rest of the series.

    Half-Blood. Oh. My. It's just awesome. What more can I say? <3

  3. Haflings... I've heard it's good, I've just been kinda laying off the angel books... with the exception of Silence of course. I still must read that one.


    I applaud your determination to continue on this week with two series that aren't exactly your favorite. I've pretty much given up on The Immortals. I've never read The Goddess Test, but the lukewarm reviews have kept it pretty low down on the priority list.

    Half-Blood though. Well. THAT book looks intereting :)

    Good luck this week!
