TBR Intervention Challenge (28)
Welcome to the TBR Intervention Challenge!
For information on why and how it was started and information on how to participate, please visit the TBRIC page.
THE BOOK I COMMITTED TO READ:
I committed to read around five books from the TBR pile in the last two weeks. And I'm ashamed I haven't kept the bargain. I finished The Poison Eaters, though. It was dark, darkly enchanting. I was surprised that Holly Black included a story from the Philippines -all about engkanto. I liked every story in that book and I think the first one merits a book of its own, since there's something there to expand with.
I decided I'll have my review requests Torn and Ugly to Start With to be read for another day. Next month maybe. I'll be reading Sundays at Tiffany's this weekend after I finish The Immortal Rules. Speaking of TIR... I'm a few chapters in. It was like I was watching a movie (along the lines of Underworld) in my head. Action right from the start and a tough heroine. By thunder! And coincidentally, have you heard the news? The Immortal Rules has been optioned for a movie by Palomar Pictures!
Anyway, I'll finish The Immortal Rules this weekend - just in time for its release on the 24th. I'd also start, finally, reading Sundays at Tiffany's which would be my TBRIC for this week.
What's your favorite food to eat or drink to beat the heat?
Mine is halu-halo. It's a mixture of shaved ice, evaporated milk, sugar, and various sweet beans and fruit topped with leche flan, purple yam and/or ice cream.
