TBR Intervention - Divergent and Hereafter

TBR Intervention is a weekly challenge hosted by 
and April @ Books4Juliet

The goal of this challenge is to help each other (fellow readers and bloggers) manage our enormous and constantly growing TBR (To-Be-Read) List. The rules are simple and everyone is encouraged to participate. It does not force you to commit to more than what you can manage to read in a week or so, but participants are encouraged to read at least one book within a week. You are free to choose the book you want to read and commit to this challenge. You may post your entry every Saturday, at the frequency of your choice--EVERY WEEK or EVERY TWO WEEKS. However, we will sponsor this event regularly every Saturday.

Well, I did manage to finish Divergent (yeah, Barnes and Noble got it here in time, Yay!). I absolutely loved it. I had been missing out on so much. One thing I did learn...before reading Divergent I thought I could be part of the Candor faction because I believe in equality for all and I seriously despise lying...but after reading Divergent, NO WAY. In fact, I don't think I could belong to any single faction...I would probably be Divergent and get myself killed because I'm not near as smart as Tris. And Four, oh how I love Four! I cannot wait for Insurgent now. I can tell you that it will be one of those drop-everything-I'm-doing-and-read-right-now books.

And Hereafter...well, I'm only about half-way through. I can't say I'm sorry I put this one off...but for any of you who know me...I can't stand to NOT finish a book, so I will finish...I will. LOL.

Now for this week...Hmmm. Okay...I'm going with Beautiful Chaos by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl. It's been on my TBR list since March 20, 2011 but I've just recently gotten my hands on it. I've been disappointed with the final books of the last several series I've read...I'm hoping this one is better.


  1. I'm soooo glad you finally read Divergent!!! YAY!
    Hope you like beautiful chaos, I'll read Bautiful creatures next week. Hope you enjoy it!

    Happy reading!!!

  2. I know what you mean about Divergent. On the surface--the idea seemed to have a lot of positive attributes. But after reading it--seeing it in action so to speak--I could see how limiting and negative it was. Maybe part of the negativity was the total rigidity of the society and the rules? The fact that people from other factions had so much animosity for the other factions?

    So I think I would be divergent too.


  3. I also only read Divergent this year and there's a plus side for reading only now. Less time waiting for Insurgent *grin*

  4. YAY! So glad you loved Divergent! It is one of my favorite books of 2011. I still need to read Beautiful Darkness and Beautiful Chaos. I hope I can get to them sometime soon! I know what you mean by final books in a series. I am having a hard time picking up Bloodrose

  5. So glad you liked Divergent! Even if I'm not very good reading dystopias, I'm starting to think that perhaps I should check it out after all...

    Also, Hereafter. I've read some complains, but I wanted to see your opinion. Still do, so I'll wait until you can finish it!

    I do hope that Beautiful creatures is a great read, that you enjoy it a lot, and that it's not disappointing in the slightest.

    Happy reading!

  6. Yay! :) Glad you loved Divergent. It really is an excellent book, and I thought that the governmental structure of their world is so original and intriguing. I'm dying to know why their world is the way it is though and I'm hoping Insurgent gives us some insight into the history behind it. :) Tris and Four? ... loved them :)

    Sorry you aren't enjoying Hereafter as much. It's definitely a bit slower, especially after a read like Divergent, but I personally enjoyed it :) Good luck with Beautiful Chaos. That's a series I just haven't been interested in enough to continue on with, so I'll be interested to see if it works for you as a final book in the series or not. If the ending's good, I may finish it someday :)

  7. OH MY GOODNESS! I SO LOVE LOVE LOVE FOUR!!! I am definitely and irrevocably Team Four here. It will always be Jace and Four for me... okay and Logan *wink* but Four is just AWESOME and I LOVE that guy. haaaay... And TRIS is my most favorite heroine ever! Tris and Four is just perfect combination. They rock my world =D (okay, do I sound like an obsessed fan here???) anyway, I am so so so glad that you loved and enjoyed Divergent! I can't wait for Insurgent to come out and I'm currently listening to an audiobook of Divergent right now... it's so so so good to hear about the story again, especially Four and Tris. Aren't the characters awesome?

    Oh, and goodluck with Beautiful Creatures! I didn't liked it much but it's good. =)

    Happy reading! I miss you girl! mwuah!

  8. hey Ron! Read Divergent NOW =D hehe... miss you!!!
