TBR Intervention Challenge (15)

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:

Waterfall
by Lisa Tawn Bergren
in my pile since June 2011


It's a miracle! I finally managed to finish a TBRIC book - first one in weeks! I seriously liked the book (see my review) and because of that I would have the last two books of the series for my TBRIC this week.




THE BOOK(S) I COMMIT TO READ THIS WEEK:
Cascade
second book in the River of Time series
by Lisa Tawn Bergren
in my pile since August 2011

Synopsis from Goodreads:
Mom touched my underdress—a gown made six hundred years before—and her eyes widened as she rubbed the raw silk between thumb and forefinger. She turned and touched Lia’s gown. “Where did you get these clothes?”
Gabi knows she’s left her heart in the fourteenth century and she persuades Lia to help her to return, even though they know doing so will risk their very lives. When they arrive, weeks have passed and all of Siena longs to celebrate the heroines who turned the tide in the battle against Florence—while the Florentines will go to great lengths to see them dead. 
But Marcello patiently awaits, and Gabi must decide if she’s willing to leave her family behind for good in order to give her heart to him forever.


Torrent
last book in the River of Time series
by Lisa Tawn Bergren
in my pile since October 2011

Synopsis from Goodreads:
When Gabi and Lia finally learn to surf the river of time, they realize they must make hard choices about life and love in the third and final book in the River of Time series.   
Gabi and Lia Betarrini have learned to control their time travel, and they return from medieval Italy to save their father from his tragic death in modern times.   But love calls across the centuries, and the girls are determined to return forever—even though they know the Black Plague is advancing across Europe, claiming the lives of one-third of the population. In the suspenseful conclusion of the River of Time series, every decision is about life … and death.

Yes siree, folks! I'll continue reading this to the last book. Gotta be a relief though that the series is complete. Sometimes it's just so frustrating waiting around for the next installment.

P.S. That dude on the cover of Torrent... he is not my image of Marcello at all.

  1. I've heard a lot about this series! Perhaps a lot is not the word... but what I've heard is very passionate. I'm glad you enjoyed your choice this time! I'm off to check your review now.

    I hope that books 2 and 3 are as cool as 1! Happy Reading,

  5. I've heard a lot of good things about this series! My mom actually just finished the first one and she too bought the second right away... lol. I'm planning on reviewing Waterfall myself here soon, and I try not to look at any other reviews until I write my own. So I will come back and check it out after I post mine :) Good luck this week! Hope you enjoy the rest of the series!
