TBR Intervention #3

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.


The Goddess Test (Goddess Test #1)
By Aimée Carter

I finished the book on saturday, but this weekend everything was out off control with my internet so my update for this week TBRIC will be today. 

I loved the book, and now I can’t wait for the next one. Is very fun and entertaining. In my head I compared to Rick Riordan’s percy Jackson series, maybe because of the gods, or maybe because of the test she’s been throught, almost like Percy himself. Just with a little more steamy scenes, kisses and all.


Hourglass (Hourglass #1)
Author: Myra McEntire
Publication Date: June 14th, 2011
Published By: Egmont USA
Genre/Category: Young Adult
Summary on Goodreads:

One hour to rewrite the past . . .

For seventeen-year-old Emerson Cole, life is about seeing what isn’t there: swooning Southern Belles; soldiers long forgotten; a haunting jazz trio that vanishes in an instant. Plagued by phantoms since her parents’ death, she just wants the apparitions to stop so she can be normal. She’s tried everything, but the visions keep coming back.
So when her well-meaning brother brings in a consultant from a secretive organization called the Hourglass, Emerson’s willing to try one last cure. But meeting Michael Weaver may not only change her future, it may change her past.
Who is this dark, mysterious, sympathetic guy, barely older than Emerson herself, who seems to believe every crazy word she says? Why does an electric charge seem to run through the room whenever he’s around? And why is he so insistent that he needs her help to prevent a death that never should have happened?

ON MY SHELF SINCE: The release date, had pre-order it.

WHY I CHOOSE THIS BOOK: I liked the summary since my first read but the cover gives me the yipes, but this time it won’t pass me buy. Since next week start my finishing exams, the reading will have to be slow, maybe I’ll finished before saturday, but if I don’t I’m giving it two weeks period this time.

  1. So Goddess Test… does it read more like MG then since you're comparing it to Percy Jackson? Just curious. GT is one of those books that look interesting, but that I just haven't been interested enough in to pick up so far.I desperately want to read Hourglass but I'm so swamped with other books at the moment. I hope you enjoy it 🙂

  2. Hi,I like your blog theme =) soo cute, perfect for halloween! I'm glad to know that you liked The Goddess Test. I want to read this book too. Hourglass is one of my favorites, and I will definitely read Timepiece (Hourglass #2) Have you seen the cover? It's stunning! I really love it. I hope you'll enjoy the book and I'm excited fo you to meet Michael 🙂 He's hot and gorgeous too! :PHave a great week! Happy Halloween!
