[Meme] TBR Intervention Week #14


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:

I still haven't finished Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone yet. I'm only reading it at home because I had this strong urge to write down every character's name the first time they show up and track it in a spreadsheet to see what I missed during my first reading of the series. Not sure if I will keep it up though as it does take the fun out of the reading.

But I did finish both The Young Black Stallion (for my Black Stallion Challenge) and Incarnate for the DAC Challenge and January mini challenge (DAC eBook). Incarnate was FABULOUS! I recommend it to everyone. It's going to be one of those books I rave about this year. Stunning.

I still haven't brought myself to do any reviews yet, but after reading and really enjoying Incarnate I have been re-inspired to write some reviews for next week.


This Week's TBR:

This week I hope to finish Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone (for the Harry Potter 2012 Challenge), it's really about time... Other than that I'm not quite sure what I want to read next, I have a lot to choose from! For one, I would like to read one of the books for the Tudor Challenge I am participating, and I think the first one will be Mary, Bloody Mary. I think I will also read the NetGalley I have for Drowning Instinct by Ilsa J. Bick.


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

What are yours?
