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.
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, grab the button and make sure to visit the other blogs. Comment, encourage, and spread the love to our fellow readers.
My first TBRIC is...
by Stefenie Meyer
Summary: (from GoodReads)
Isabella Swan's move to Forks, a small, perpetually rainy town in Washington, could have been the most boring move she ever made. But once she meets the mysterious and alluring Edward Cullen, Bella's life takes a thrilling and terrifying turn.
Up until now, Edward has managed to keep his vampire identity a secret in the small community he lives in, but now nobody is safe, especially Bella, the person Edward holds most dear. The lovers find themselves balanced precariously on the point of a knife—between desire and danger.
Deeply romantic and extraordinarily suspenseful, Twilight captures the struggle between defying our instincts and satisfying our desires. This is a love story with bite.
How long has it sat on my shelf?
How did it get there?
A friend bought it for me and said I must read it.
Why haven't I read it yet?
I'm in love with the idea behind Twilight, but I am concerned that the book will not live up to it.
Why have I decided to read it now?
-- It's Halloween. Why not read a vampire book?
-- It's about time I saw what all the fuss is about.
-- Alison Can Read is having a Twilight month in November to celebrate the release of Breaking Dawn, part 1. It should be a lot of fun, but in order to enjoy it, it would definitely help to have read the book(s). We'll see whether that becomes plural based on how I like Twilight.
So, what are your thoughts on Twilight? Can you believe I haven't read it -- or that I'm going to? Whatever it is, I'd love to know your opinion so feel free to leave a comment. :)
