|Intervention is a weekly challenge hosted by Dani @ RefractedLight, Ayanami @Whatever you Can Still Betray, and April @Books4Juliet
The aim is to choose a book (or several) you’ve had for more than 6 months (or there about) and read it in the designated week to reduce your TBR-pile.
This is my first time taking part in TBR intervention, so I have no previous books to discuss. I’m absolutely terrible at keeping with monthly challenges because I always change what I’m going to read! However, I’m going to pick two books to try and read. Hopefully I’ll be able to read those two!
|Graceling by Kristin Cashore
Katsa has been able to kill a man with her bare hands since she was eight—she’s a Graceling, one of the rare people in her land born with an extreme skill. As niece of the king, she should be able to live a life of privilege, but Graced as she is with killing, she is forced to work as the king’s thug. When she first meets Prince Po, Graced with combat skills, Katsa has no hint of how her life is about to change. She never expects to become Po’s friend. She never expects to learn a new truth about her own Grace—or about a terrible secret that lies hidden far away . . . a secret that could destroy all seven kingdoms with words alone.
|Night Rise by Anthony Horowitz
The world is in great danger and only five kids can save it. But to do that, they must face off against some of the most powerful people in the world. Two of the five, Scott and Jamie, have always known they were different. Twins whose birth is shrouded in mystery, they’ve always been able to communicate with each other telepathically. Their supernatural talent has landed them no farther than a gig in a Z-grade sideshow in Reno, Nevada…until they garner the attention of a very scary clientele. Soon their lives are in jeopardy, with one of them trapped and one of them on the run. In Nightrise, Anthony Horowitz ups the stakes in his most thrilling, intense novel yet.
I also hope to enjoy these two books. I’ve heard a lot about Graceling and I pretty much enjoy anything by Anthony Horowitz anyway. Fingers crossed and wish me luck!
