TBR Intervention [#11]


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: 
Hush, Hush
Author: Becca Fitzpatrick

I enjoyed this book. Sorry I don't have my review posted yet though. I'm kinda behind on posting reviews so I haven't posted the last couple I need to. I'll try to get them up soon for you guys though. Ok? :)










This week I'm committing to read:
Leviathan
Author: Scott Westerfeld

Summary from Goodreads: 
Prince Aleksander, would-be heir to the Austro-Hungarian throne, is on the run. His own people have turned on him. His title is worthless. All he has is a battletorn war machine and a loyal crew of men.

Deryn Sharp is a commoner, disguised as a boy in the British Air Service. She's a brilliant airman. But her secret is in constant danger of being discovered.

With World War I brewing, Alek and Deryn's paths cross in the most unexpected way…taking them on a fantastical, around-the-world adventure that will change both their lives forever.
This has been on my shelf since September 2011. It was one of the books my grandma got me for my bday. I wanted it because Scott Westerfeld is one of my favorite authors and the books sounds pretty cool. I just haven't had the time to really get around to it.

  1. OH I am so glad you liked Hush! I have heard mixed reviews and haven't read it yet...maybe in the New Year. I also have Leviathan on my TBR pile so I can't wait to see your thoughts on that one as well! Here is my TBR for the week.

  2. I liked Hush Hush too and I think Crescendo is much better. I hope you can read it soon. I have Silence but I don't have time yet to read it.

    I hope you had a wonderful Christmas Brittany =) I got your card today and I was so so excited! Thank you so much! You're so sweet! I hope that you get my card SOON too. XOXOXO!!!

    Happy New Year!
