TBR Intervention Challenge

TBR Intervention Challenge is a weekly challenge hosted by Dani@RefractedLight, Anayami@Whatever You Can Still Betray and April@Books4Juliet.

We both decided to participate and we decided to write our first post together. We'll publish separate posts later on to avoid interfering with each other's rhythm. We are a little late to this week's party since we were supposed to choose a book two days ago, but I'm sure we'll manage to complete our challenges by Saturday.

Lisa chose The Queen of Attolia by Megan Whalen Turner for this week.

When Eugenides (yoo-JEN-ə-deez), the Thief of Eddis, stole Hamiathes's Gift, the Queen of Attolia lost more than a mythical relic. She lost face. Everyone knew that Eugenides had outwitted and escaped her. To restore her reputation and reassert her power, the Queen of Attolia will go to any length and accept any help that is offered...she will risk her country to execute the perfect revenge.
...but Eugenides can steal anything. And he taunts the Queen of Attolia, moving through her strongholds seemingly at will. So Attolia waits, secure in the knowledge that the Thief will slip, that he will haunt her palace one too many times. what price?
When Eugenides finds his small mountain country at war with Attolia, he must steal a man, he must steal a queen, he must steal peace. But his greatest triumph, and his greatest loss, comes in capturing something that the Queen of Attolia thought she had sacrificed long ago...

Maja chose Sloppy Firsts by Megan McCafferty

“My parents suck ass. Banning me from the phone and restricting my computer privileges are the most tyrannical parental gestures I can think of. Don’t they realize that Hope’s the only one who keeps me sane? . . . I don’t see how things could get any worse.”

When her best friend, Hope Weaver, moves away from Pineville, New Jersey, hyperobservant sixteen-year-old Jessica Darling is devastated. A fish out of water at school and a stranger at home, Jessica feels more lost than ever now that the only person with whom she could really communicate has gone. How is she supposed to deal with the boy- and shopping-crazy girls at school, her dad’s obsession with her track meets, her mother salivating over big sister Bethany’s lavish wedding, and her nonexistent love life?

Both these books have been on our respective tbr piles for quite some time and it'll probably feel good to finally read them. We'll each post our update this Saturday.
Fingers crossed!
