It's TBR Intervention Challenge time! My favorite challenge ever! 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!
And wow, I'm actually kind of surprised about this one! I committed to read The Lure of Shapinsay, Katana and Beckoning Light. The results have been... eclectic. I love the Lure, you can check out my review about why here. Katana was an okay book - it wasn't outstanding, I think, and I probably didn't enjoy it as much because I felt there were some things that could have been historically correct without detracting from the story. More to come when I can post the review, in a couple of weeks (PubDs and all that). I managed to finish Beckoning Light in the last minute, yesterday night, and I'm still trying to figure out what failed to engage me. It was fairly okay, "but", if you know what I mean. Review to come Jan 31st (yes, that's the first opening I had, sad but true...)
- Next week TBR IC:
Next week, I'm going to put a dent into my ARC with Ripper, a YA based on the tale of Jack the Ripper that I'm dying to read, and try to follow up with a read for an upcoming tour, Promising Light. Promising Light's pretty long, so I'm not sure whether I'll pull it off, but I'll try!
So, that's it. What about you? What did you read? Did you enjoy it? How's the upcoming week looking for you?
