It's TBR Intervention Challenge time! How I love this meme, this moment when we get to organize our huge To Be Read piles and actually read those books we've been wanting to (or been supposed to) for the longest time! The challenge is hosted by April @ Books4Juliet, Dani @ Refracted Light and Ayanami @ Whatever You Can Still Betray, and it's hosted every Saturday, though you're free to join every two weeks if that's more convenient for you. As always, do join us! Here's the rules:

- Last week's TBR IC: Success!
I read, loved and nearly cried over Dearly Departed. You heard me being dubious about it at first, then slowly evolving into "I must read this", and now that I have... wow. No, really - this is not just a good book, it's an special book for a number of reasons. I'll post the review soon, but not yet: I need some time to fully digest my feelings if I want something coherent on the page!
Hunting the Five was a short and easy read. I didn't thrill me, but it was nice enough - you can see my review with the good and not so good points here.
- This week TBR IC:
I'm going to pic up this title, which I've been waiting to read for a long time: it's back to classic epic fantasy, a genre I must return to regularly, and I'm quite looking forward to it: I know the author has put an exhorbitant amount of care in this title, and I have a feeling it'll be up to it. A bit worried because it's the first book in a long series, which means I'll have to wait a long time if I do fall in love with it, but oh well!
Because the year is almost over and I want to read as many book from my TRB as possible - so that I can start from scratch (or as close to it as possible) in 2012- I'm going to add a second book to the challenge: again, it's a novella. It's Vengeance. Will I get to love the character I ended up despising? How will it turn out? I can't wait!
