TBR Intervention Challenge [#37]

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:
All These Things I've Done (Birthright #1)
Author: Gabrielle Zevin

I really enjoyed this. I thought this book was great especially with how Anya had to deal with being the daughter of a crime lord (I think that's what they call it). It wasn't easy for her at all but she deal with everything that came her way. I loved how Anya was really dedicated to protecting her family. I think that was the thing I liked most about this book besides Win (who sounds pretty cute). I know I'm getting this up late so I apologize. I had to have my car tested yesterday because it gave me a problem again so I was dealing with that so I didnt have the time to get this all up yesterday. I promise my review will be up this week though (since I didnt get to write it yesterday it has to wait til at least Friday to go up since I already have other reviews scheduled.) So I'll leave the link for my review in next weeks TBR post.

This week I'm committing to read:
The Catastrophic History of You and Me
Author: Jess Rothenberg

Blurb from GoodReads:
Dying of a broken heart is just the beginning.... Welcome to forever.

BRIE'S LIFE ENDS AT SIXTEEN: Her boyfriend tells her he doesn't love her, and the news breaks her heart—literally.

But now that she's D&G (dead and gone), Brie is about to discover that love is way more complicated than she ever imagined. Back in Half Moon Bay, her family has begun to unravel. Her best friend has been keeping a secret about Jacob, the boy she loved and lost—and the truth behind his shattering betrayal. And then there's Patrick, Brie's mysterious new guide and resident Lost Soul . . . who just might hold the key to her forever after.

With Patrick's help, Brie will have to pass through the five stages of grief before she's ready to move on. But how do you begin again, when your heart is still in pieces?

I've been looking forward to reading this for a while. It sounds really good and since I need to return it to the library later this upcoming week I wanna fit it in so I don't have to renew it (again). Lol.


  1. OMG! Those books look amazing!! I put The Catastrophic History of You and Me in a challenge of this year, but I haven't try it yet. I'll be looking forward to read what you think of it.
    Have a nice day.
    Happy reading!!

  2. Oh.MY.Goodness. You have The Catastrophic History of You and Me!!! I want that book too. Good luck! I hope it ends up pretty good, I want to know what you think about that book. It has been on my TBR too, I just don't have a copy yet. I hope it's really good. That cover is gorgeous!


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