It's TBR Intervention Challenge time! 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 TBR IC: Success!
Time of the Awakening: very good for a fantasy classic-style, really. It stays in the wavelength without falling into simplifications like many other universes out there. There's a review coming up the 24th and while it'll be a bit short - story's way too complex to go into details, and besides I'd rather not spoil this one - I'll explain more about what I liked and why it took me this long to finish the read.
Existence. I know a lot of you were excited about it... With good reason. At first I found it a bit cliché and had trouble rooting for the "right guy", but then... Well, check out my review here to know more about this one ;)
- Next week TBR IC:
I'm going to go full tilt crazy into the oncoming week. Like, three books kind of crazy. I started one last night, so I'm not sure if that's cheating a bit, but here we go:
I've started on The Lure of Shapinsay. All I can say is, "wow". Selkie book, by the way. More comments when I finish it. Katana is an ARC from Flux that I'm super excited about. I love all things Japanese, so this tale of reincarnation and action and attracion should hook me right in. Beckoning Light is an indie I've had for a while and wanted to get to for the longest time. Book two will come out soon, so I thought this was the perfect excuse to finally dust it off my virtual shelves.
