TBR Intervention Week #3

The TBR (To Be Read) Intervention Challenge is a weekly challenge hosted by Books4JulietWhatever You Can Sill Betray and Refracted Light.

The following information is posted on Refracted Light's blog:

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 Week's TBR:

As promised, I started, but have not quite finished, The Iron Knight by Julie Kagawa. But can I just tell you how much I am loving it! Full review to follow soon.

I did not however get around to starting Dearly, Departed by Lia Habel. And since I keep missing out on it I think I am going to put it back on the TBR shelf for now.

This Week's TBR:

This week I plan on reading Touch by Jus Accardo on my shiny new Kobo Vox, now that I have finally figured out how to make my NetGalley files work with it.

Once I finish that I have decided I will move on and finally read Wither by Lauren DeStefano. I kind of figured I don't have much of a choice since I received an ARC of Fever (book 2 in the series) today at the BlogOntario Event, and because I have heard such amazing things about it!

These books are my goals or this week's TBR Intervention Challenge.

What are yours?


  1. Glad to hear that you love Iron Knight thus far. Dearly Departed was a good read.
    Congrats on getting a Fever ARC. Can't wait to hear what you think.

  2. I loved The Iron Knight, too! *squeals*

    Good luck on this week's books.

  3. Glad you're loving The Iron Knight! I really need to start that series!

    And wow, three new books! Good luck Gwenyth! lol I'm really wanting to read Touch and I have not yet read Wither, but everyone says it's amazing. Congrats on scoring an ARC of Fever! :)

  4. I heard that TOUCH is a great book! I want a copy too! Goodluck with it... I hope you'll enjoy it =) I'm happy too that you're loving Iron Knight... I still need to read the two previous books ;P I'll look forward to your review! =)

    Thank you for participating Gwenyth =) XOXO!

  5. Thanks Dani and Juliet!

    I am minutes away from finishing The Iron Knight...literally...and it's super! Best book of the series.

  6. Iron Knight is the book! Glad to hear you're enjoying it... for me, the whole series is the best thing to happen to, er... fairies count as paranormal? YA romance!

    About your challenge, I am dying to get Touch! Not literally, not as if Kyle had touched me... but almost. I hope you enjoy it!

    Good luck! Three books are a lot, but you can do it! *starts a cheerlearing routine for morale*
