[Meme] TBR Intervention Week #5

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:

Last week was a pretty eventful week! As promised I finished Two Moons of Sera by Pavarti K Tyler and it was really good! Look for my post November 23rd (my blog tour date).

I started Outcast of a Dream World and got about 100 pages into it before I gave up and marked it as DNF (did not finish). I was having a lot of trouble with the flow of the story. Perspectives shifted too rapidly and characters knew things they shouldn't. It just made for a very awkward read and I have too many books to be read to invest in reading something that annoys me.

I dove into The Future of Us next and so far it seems to be a light quick and easy humorous read and I am enjoying it very much.

I never ended up getting to Wither, and I think I might save that one for my 2012 TBR Challenge...we will see.

This Week's TBR:

So...what to do this week? Obviously I am going to finish The Future of Us, That's step one. I am also really hoping my copy of Lisa Morton's Monsters of L.A. comes in because I am supposed to prepare a blog tour post for December 5th, but I haven't received the book yet! So once that book comes in I will be reading that. I think I will also squeeze in Crossed (Matched #2) by Ally Condie. I have the ARC I was lucky enough to pick up at a focus group event, and since I liked Matched I might as well give it a read.

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

What are yours?


  1. Hope you enjoy Crossed, I liked Matched, but I didn't like the love triangle (I am Team Xander), anyway, it's a good book.
    Happy reading!!

  2. I'm glad your enjoying The Future of Us! I'm looking forward to reading it myself! I hope you enjoy Crossed!

  3. Jealous. I'm dying to read Crossed, but making myself finish other things first. Sorry your one book was a DNF, but I'm glad you're enjoying the other two :)

    Good luck this week!

  4. Sound like you will have a busy, but good, reading week as long as Monsters in L.A. arrives. Hopefully it will arrive so that you are not rushed to meet your deadline. I look forward to what you think of Crossed. I have not read the first in the series yet.

  5. WOw! My copy of Crossed arrived yesterday at the bookstore, I need to pick the book this week. I'm excited to read because I love love Matched =) I hope you can get to it soon too!

    I'm glad to know that you're enjoying The Future Of Us. It's kinda intriguing and it's one of the book in my Most-Anticipated-List. I hope to get a copy soon =)

    Have a great weekend! Good luck with your TBR! XOXO!

  6. Thanks for stopping by everyone!

  7. I'm reading Crossed this week too. Hope we both like it!
