Welcome to the TBR Intervention Challenge!
1.) So. This week. Um… what DID I read this week? Uno momento.
<trots off to check Goodreads>
It’s been a loooooong week for some reason, BUT I did manage to read my TBRIC book. (Yay me!) Struck by Jennifer Bosworth was incredibly interesting. It’s about L.A. in the aftermath of a devastating 8.something quake. The situation is desperate, people are fleeing the city, aid is scarce, thousands and thousands of people have died… and the ones who are left are flocking to a man named Prophet who claims he is the Mouthpiece of God, that he alone can grant salvation, and that — yes, folks, you guessed it — the end is nigh. Caught in the middle of this chaos is Mia Price, a girl who has a certain, shall we say, affinity for lightning storms. It’s a fantastic book and if the cultish religiosity doesn’t bug you, you should definitely give it a try. I do not have a full review written yet for Struck, but it’s coming. Soon.
Lastly, I read Slumber by Samantha Young. A really awesome fantasy with an extremely compelling quest and romance. The character of Rogan is absolutely wonderful and Wolfe makes for a mysterious, dashing hero. I love those romances where they start out hating each other… and they have valid reasons for their dislike. It’s, as I said, awesome.

2.) So… this week. I’m finally getting around to Embrace by Jessica Shirvington. My tour date is on Tuesday, and my goal is to have a review to publish in tandem with that. Really looking forward to getting a chance to curl up with it this weekend… been looking forward to this book for a while now.
So what are you reading this week?
