TBR Intervention is a weekly challenge hosted by
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.
MY LAST WEEK’S TBRIC:
Author: Kirsten Hubbard
Published Date: March 13th 2012
Published By: Delacorte Books
Genre: Young Adult, Contemporary
Hello everyone! So, yeah, FINALLY… AT LONG LAST, I finished my TBRIC! Yay for me! Not just because I’m done with it but because I LOVED the book! It was expectedly (based on other reviews) good. It maybe took me almost two weeks to finish it (due to some personal reasons, which you know already), but when I finally and seriously dive into the story, it swallowed me! I really enjoyed it. The pacing of the story might be slow but it will carefully grow in you and you’ll end up loving it in the process. It touched me in a way I cant explain literally… It was a fun read but deep inside, I felt the sadness in it. Maybe the leaving-your-home part makes me sentimental and a bit nostalgic, that’s why I felt sad when I read it. It’s really good and I recommend it. You can read my full review here: Book Review: Wanderlove. I also finished and reviewed Scorpio Races by Maggie Stiefvater and if you like to see it, you can find it here: Book Review: Scorpio Races.
THIS WEEK’S TBRIC: Ok, so I’m choosing between the two books below. I can’t commit both since I’m afraid that I wouldn’t be able to read the two in one week time… then you’ll have the reason to kick me out of the challenge (kidding! I know you wouldn’t do that, right?)
Frostbite (Vampire Academy #2)
By: Richelle Mead
On My Shelf Since: August 21, 2011
I know that it’s only been less than 4 months since I bought this book, but it has been on my TBR for so long already. Besides, I already got the first 5 books in the series and they are starting to gather dust on my shelf… I only need the last book (The Last Sacrifice) to complete my collection, and I want them out of my TBR Shelf and place them on my regular bookshelf. Besides, those dusts are getting bored, they need new books to lie into 😛 hehe.
Silence (Hush, Hush #3)
By: Becca Fitzpatrick
On My Shelf Since: September 13, 2011
Another book I need to read is Silence. Every time I see Hush, Hush and Crescendo on my bookshelf, I become so anxious to read it. I think it’s about time.
How’s your TBRIC book(s) last week? Did you finish it?
