TBR Intervention Challenge [#20]

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:
The Iron King
Author: Julie Kagawa

I really enjoyed this book!!! It definitely lived up to all the hype! I'm so happy I finally got started on this series!! :D Ok, so I'm pretty busy today and I'm writing this post very quickly in between what I'm doing so that also means I havent typed up my review. BUT if I finish all I have to do early then maybe a little bit later I can write it up for you guys and post the link. Sound good? :) 

Oh, and to everyone whose excited for my review of Hex Hall I have great news! I found another copy of Demonglass at my other library this week so I'll be able to read it and get both reviews up for next week! I'm excited I didn't have to wait too long to get another copy! :)


This week I'm committing to read: 
Daughter of Smoke and Bone
Author: Laini Taylor

Summary from Goodreads:
Around the world, black handprints are appearing on doorways, scorched there by winged strangers who have crept through a slit in the sky.

In a dark and dusty shop, a devil's supply of human teeth grown dangerously low.

And in the tangled lanes of Prague, a young art student is about to be caught up in a brutal otherwordly war.

Meet Karou. She fills her sketchbooks with monsters that may or may not be real; she's prone to disappearing on mysterious "errands"; she speaks many languages—not all of them human; and her bright blue hair actually grows out of her head that color. Who is she? That is the question that haunts her, and she's about to find out.

When one of the strangers—beautiful, haunted Akiva—fixes his fire-colored eyes on her in an alley in Marrakesh, the result is blood and starlight, secrets unveiled, and a star-crossed love whose roots drink deep of a violent past. But will Karou live to regret learning the truth about herself?
 
Ok, I've been DYING to read Daughter of Smoke and Bone for like EVER now. Even though I just got a copy only like 3 weeks ago I cant wait any longer to read it!!!! Lol. 
 
Good luck to everyone with there TBRIC this week! :)
 
Oh, and do any of you like the Firelight series by Sophie Jordan, or Cold Kiss by Amy Garvey? Cuz the Covers for Hidden (Firelight #3) and Glass Heart (Cold Kiss #2) were revealed this week and if you havent seen them I'll post the links for both cover reveals! (They are really pretty FYI!). Feel free to drop by them and tell me your thoughts on the covers!
 
 
Anyways, be back later, hopefully with enough time to share my review with you guys! :)

  1. Brittani...good luck with Daughters of Smoke and Bone. I haven't read it yet but it does look amazing. I loved the Iron Fey series. I hope you do also.

    As far as Hidden and Glass Heart go...I have read both series and think both the covers are amazing. I'm hoping for a little bit more from Glass Heart...I like Cold Kiss okay, but that's it.

    Happy Reading!
