Welcome to the TBR Intervention Challenge!
1.) So…Aurelia. I did finish it. One book down, one million to go. I was on vacation last week, so I got to finish a few books (YAY!) but now I’m super behind on reviews (BOO!)… and this book is one of them still needing a write-up. I found it entertaining and an interesting mystery, but I wished for more world development and more character depth. Although it was a full-length novel, the story felt a little truncated, perhaps? I dunno. Still pondering this read, and I will review it soon.
2.) My next book that I’m going to commit to read over the next week or two is Dearly, Departed. Yes. I know it just came out, so it hasn’t even been sitting on my shelf long enough to gather dust. I guess, technically, it doesn’t fit the criteria. However, I have been DYING to read this book… dying. So it’s my choice this week, especially since I’m notoriously bad with procrastination and reading the books I really anticipate. For instance, could not WAIT to read Cassandra Clare’s City of Fallen Angels. I made a special trip to Barnes & Noble on its release date JUST to get the copy that had Jace’s letter to Clary tucked inside… and I finally finished it TWO MONTHS later. My reluctance to read books I really look forward to has nothing to do with it being a disappointment. I LOVED City of Fallen Angels. I just didn’t want the book to end, so I took my time. A loooooong time.
Not doing that with this book. Gonna read it right away.
And by the way, my pre-order of this one just came in. It’s so pretty… and HUGE. I didn’t expect this book to be so long, and I’m super excited to start digging into it.
What book are you going to read this week?
