Welcome to the TBR Intervention Challenge!
1.) Man, I really suck at this meme… and I’m supposedly one of the hosts. Don’t kick me off… please? Carrier of the Mark? Didn’t even crack it open. That’s mostly due to the fact that I FINALLY got approved to read Cinder through NetGalley. <Squee!> I would like to say how ever that I’ve gotten more reading done this past week than I’ve been averaging lately. I finished THREE books and and am halfway through Cinder. So even though I didn’t meet my TBR goal, I’m happy with what I got accomplished and I got some books read that I’ve been wanting to get through forever.
Untraceable – A really fast-paced mystery/thriller set in the Smokies. The heroine was a bit of acool, tomboy wilderness survival expert and the love triangle was yummy. Releases on 11.29, but I’m having S.R. Johannes on the blog on Wednesday so be sure to stop by and check that out!
Silver Dew – Sequel to Amber Frost and I’ve been waiting for this book since April. It is AH-Mazing. Loved this book. It sucked me in and barely gave me a moment to breath. It was exciting, and the romance between Sebastian and Grace? So. Bone-Meltingly. Good. You all must read this. Releases 12.01.
Brightest Kind of Darkness – Just finished this book this morning… I was really blessed with a bunch of REALLY GREAT books this week, because I also loved this one! Ethan? He’s now on my favorite book boy list and Nara is just a fantastic heroine! The concept behind this story is really original, and I CANNOT WAIT for the sequel.
Cinder – So this is where my TBR challenge went a little… awry. I’ve been waiting on NetGalley to approve me for this one for a month, so you can imagine how ecstatic I was when a little email popped up in my inbox telling me I could download it. I’m afraid I decided to start this one right away, and I’m SO glad I did. I’m am once again…LOVING it.
2.) Ok…honestly lately between review obligations, I’ve had very little time to read anything that’s not current. (i.e. that’s why I’ve been choosing books that aren’t so dusty). I’ve been lucky to get through two books a week. But this week I’m going to choose a book that’s been on my shelf for three months now, and that’s also on the shorter side. The Adoration of Jenna Fox. the whole concept of maybe her memories aren’t hers is really intriguing. This week holds a holiday for us Yanks, so hopefully I’ll get some down time to actually get my TBRIC book read.
So what are reading this week?
