TBR Intervention is a weekly challenge hosted by April @ Books4Juliet, Dani @ Refracted Light and Ayanami @ Whatever You Can Still Betray
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.
MY LAST WEEK’S TBRIC:
Firespell (Dark Elite #1)
By Chloe Neill
I finished the book yesterday, yay, and really liked but sadly no review yet. I have at least other three books that are waiting for reviews post, I’ll try next week to put everything in order, no promises. Back to the book, is a series and I already have the number two, Hexbound, lets hope this one won’t wait so much for a chance. And the third will be released next year, called Charmfall.
THE BOOK I COMMIT TO READ THIS WEEK:
The Goddess Test (Goddess Test #1)
Publication Date: April 19th 2011
Genre/Category: Young Adult, Fantasy
Summary on Goodreads:
It’s always been just Kate and her mom—and her mother is dying. Her last wish? To move back to her childhood home. So Kate’s going to start at a new school with no friends, no other family and the fear her mother won’t live past the fall.
Then she meets Henry. Dark. Tortured. And mesmerizing. He claims to be Hades, god of the Underworld—and if she accepts his bargain, he’ll keep her mother alive while Kate tries to pass seven tests.
Kate is sure he’s crazy—until she sees him bring a girl back from the dead. Now saving her mother seems crazily possible. If she succeeds, she’ll become Henry’s future bride, and a goddess.
ON MY SHELF SINCE: August 09 2011
WHY I CHOOSE THIS BOOK: I love greck gods, so I fell in love with this summary when I first read in a blog, and after I had to wait for Book Depository to deliver in my country, around one month and after that he had to wait for others that had arrived before him, but now he only gets pushed behind, but this week I’ll tame him.
