TBR Intervention Challenge [#12]


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:
Leviathan
Author: Scott Westerfeld

I'll be honest, due to the holidays I didnt even come close to finishing Leviathan. Lol. So I'm gonna continue it for this week! But I am still gonna pick another book for this week because I'm super SUPER excited to read it!









The OTHER book I'm committing to read this week is:
Shift
Author: Jeri Smith-Ready

Summary from Goodreads: 
Aura’s life is anything but easy. Her boyfriend, Logan, died, and his slides between ghost and shade have left her reeling. Aura knows he needs her now more than ever. She loves Logan, but she can’t deny her connection with the totally supportive, totally gorgeous Zachary. And she’s not sure that she wants to.
Logan and Zachary will fight to be the one by her side, but Aura needs them both to uncover the mystery of her past—the mystery of the Shift. 

As Aura’s search uncovers new truths, she must decide whom to trust with her secrets…and her heart.

Ok, so we all know I really enjoyed Shade and I've been dying to get my hands of Shift since then! So even though I only picked it up today I'm making it my other TBR book because I'm so excited to read it!!!!!!! And I must share my excitement with you guys! :D :D And plus I know many of you guys will love the fact that I'm reading Shift. :)

  4. Yes! Shift! I'm sure you'll love it! (well, I did...) But I'm also looking forward to your comments on Leviathan... I've heard plenty of things, but all of them sooo vague that I'm not even sure I get the genre!

    Good luck, and happy reading this week!
