TBR Intervention Challenge [#41]

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:
Hemlock (Hemlock #1)
Author: Kathleen Peacock

This book is really good! I enjoyed it! I don't know why I wasn't sure if I wanted to read it but I'm glad I did! My review will be up later. I still have to make my Stacking The Shelves video for today and I have to finish writing my review of The Girl Of Fire And Thorns (since I finished that before I finished Hemlock). So It'll be a little bit before my review of Hemlock goes up. I'm hopeful I'll have it up by 3 or 4 (Mountain Time - AZ). I'll link it up when I get it posted! (And if any of your are wondering, The Girl Of Fire And Thorns was great as well.)

This week I'm committing to read: 
Blood Red Road (Dustlands #1)
Author: Moira Young

Blurb from Goodreads:
Saba has spent her whole life in Silverlake, a dried-up wasteland ravaged by constant sandstorms. The Wrecker civilization has long been destroyed, leaving only landfills for Saba and her family to scavenge from. That's fine by her, as long as her beloved twin brother Lugh is around. But when a monster sandstorm arrives, along with four cloaked horsemen, Saba's world is shattered. Lugh is captured, and Saba embarks on an epic quest to get him back.

Suddenly thrown into the lawless, ugly reality of the world outside of desolate Silverlake, Saba is lost without Lugh to guide her. So perhaps the most surprising thing of all is what Saba learns about herself: she's a fierce fighter, an unbeatable survivor, and a cunning opponent. And she has the power to take down a corrupt society from the inside. Teamed up with a handsome daredevil named Jack and a gang of girl revolutionaries called the Free Hawks, Saba stages a showdown that will change the course of her own civilization.

Blood Red Road has a searing pace, a poetically minimal writing style, violent action, and an epic love story. Moira Young is one of the most promising and startling new voices in teen fiction.

I've had this on my TBR pile for months and I'm tired of putting it off! I know a bunch of people love this book and I finally wanna get to it! So I'll be reading it this week!


  1. So glad you liked Hemlock, I really wanted to read it some months ago, but now, I kind of... forget it!
    I hope you LOVE Blood red road, it's one of my favorites and it's awesome!!
    Have a happy weekend and happy reading!


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