TBR Intervention Challenge [#26]

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:
Hallowed (Unearthly #2)
Author: Cynthia Hand

I really enjoyed Hallowed!!! It was definitely not what I was expecting but that made it even better for me! Especially with the shocking revelations that came out!!

Review: Hallowed by Cynthia Hand

This week I'm committing to read:
White Cat (Curse Workers #1)
Author: Holly Black

Summary from Goodreads: 
Cassel comes from a family of curse workers—people who have the power to change your emotions, your memories, your luck, all by the slightest touch of their hands. Since curse work is illegal, they’re all criminals. But not Cassel. He hasn’t got the magic touch, so he’s an outsider—the straight kid in a crooked family—as long as you ignore one small detail: He killed his best friend, Lila. Now he is sleepwalking, propelled into the night by terrifying dreams about a white cat. He also notices that his brothers are keeping secrets from him. As Cassel begins to suspect he’s part of one huge con game, he must unravel his past and his memories. To find out the truth, Cassel will have to outcon the conmen.

Ok, so I dont even know how long I've had this on my TBR shelf anymore. But its been a while. Lol. I keep starting it, but then getting distracted by something else. Then I think in my head I wanna pick it up again cuz I was really enjoying it but I never do. Lol. So this week I'm gonna restart it and hopefully finish it finally! 


  1. Hi Brittani!

    Another Holly Black's book. I haven't read any of her stories yet. I hope sometime I can get to it. I've seen mixed reviews about this one, but I hope you'll like it :)

    Sorry, I'm so late for my post. It's Monday already :P hehe. Just posted my TBRIC today. Happy Easter!

  2. Hmm... I'm so glad you enjoyed Hallowed! I'm still on the fence about this series... 'cause it's about angels, right?

    Good luck with White Cat this week! Have you seen the new covers for those? They are super cool :)

    Oh... and Heist Society. Not going to review it, but I finished it last night and it's just a really FUN book. If you need a break from epic, fated, world-ending stories, it's a great change of pace :) It's like Ocean's 11 meets Neil Caffrey from White Collar.

  3. There are shocking revelations in Hallowed??? Oh dear, oh dear. I have it to read and soon. Maybe at a later TBRIC post.

    And, well, I'm curious about Holly Black's Curse Workers series. I liked her Modern Faerie Tale books so maybe I'll check this one out.

    Happy reading!


Feel free to leave comments :) I like hearing from everyone.
