TBR Intervention Challenge (14)

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.

THE BOOK I COMMITTED TO READ:


Destiny's Path
the second book in the Warrior Princess series
by Frewin Jones
in my pile since September 2011

So I ended up not finishing Destiny's Path. As much as Branwen's journey's so captivating, there will come a point in reading it when you say "This is not working" for one reason or another. Therefore, I'm gonna put Destiny's Path aside for future reading.



THE BOOK I COMMIT TO READ THIS WEEK:
Waterfall
by Lisa Tawn Bergren
in my pile since June 2011

Synopsis from Goodreads:
What do you do when your knight in shining armor lives, literally, in a different world? 

Most American teenagers want a vacation in Italy, but the Betarrini sisters have spent every summer of their lives among the romantic hills with their archaelogist parents. Stuck among the rubble of the medieval castles in rural Tuscany, on yet another hot, dusty archaeological site, Gabi and Lia are bored out of their minds...until Gabi places her hand atop a handprint in an ancient tomb and finds herself in fourteenth-century Italy. And worse yet, in the middle of a fierce battle between knights of two opposing forces. 

Suddenly Gabi's summer in Italy is much, much more interesting.

I always wanted to be an archaeologist.. but more of the Lara Croft style where I go gallivanting around the world, discovering things and places, having adventures, reliving the past.. But my education put me on a slightly different path BUT I still want to be a Lara Croft of sorts.

  2. Well done dropping the book. After all, reading should be pleasure and not torture! I hope Waterfall turns out to be a good book. I'd sure be interested on how they portray 14th century Tuscany. Historic detail for the area are very difficult to get right, so it sounds very interesting!

    Happy reading!

  3. I agree with Ron, life's too short for bad books. I'm sorry you just weren't digging it. Hopefully Waterfall will provide a much more enjoyable reading experience. I picked it up a few months ago when it was free on Kindle, but haven't gotten around to it yet. Good luck this week! :)
