TBR Intervention Challenge [#10]


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:
Shade
Author: Jeri Smith-Ready

I really enjoyed this book! I can see why everyone else likes it so much! I really enjoyed the story line, the characters! The book overall is very well done. I finished it literally in hours. :D Review: Shade by Jeri Smith-Ready









This week I'm committing to read:
Hush, Hush
Author: Becca Fitzpatrick 

Summary from Goodreads:
For Nora Grey, romance was not part of the plan. She's never been particularly attracted to the boys at her school, no matter how much her best friend, Vee, pushes them at her...until Patch comes along.
With his easy smile and eyes that seem to see inside her, Nora is drawn to him against her better judgment, but after a series of terrifying encounters, Nora's not sure whom to trust. Patch seems to be everywhere she is, and to know more about her than her closest friends. She can't decide whether she should fall into his arms or run and hide. And when she tries to seek some answers, she finds herself near a truth that is far more unsettling than anything Patch makes her feel.
For Nora is right in the middle of an ancient battle between the immortal and those that have fallen - and when it comes to choosing sides, the wrong choice will cost her life.

I've had Hush, Hush on my shelf since September 2011 (it was one of the many books my grandma got me for my bday). I've been meaning to get to it but I just havent got around to it. So, this week I'm dusting it off and reading it.

Oh, and I want to share something exciting with you guys! As of yesterday I reached 200 followers! :D I never thought I'd have this many people interested in my blog! (And of course thank you guys for being interested as well :D)!

  1. Congrats on the followers! It's a big number ;)

    Also, I'm super glad you loved Shade! It was a great discovery for me as well. Bad news, I guess, is that Shine won't be around till spring...

    I hope you'll enjoy Hush, Hush. I haven't read it, but I've heard a lot of buzz - most of it good! I'll be looking forward to your comments ;)

    Happy Reading!
