TBR Tuesday: Balefire

Most of us have books we've bought with all intentions of reading (or maybe just because it was cheap!), only to have them fade away on a shelf or disappear into a stack of books, never to be seen or thought of again.
TBR Tuesday is a way to talk about the books we own but haven't read, see what other people think about them, and help us decide whether to bump it up our list or knock it off completely.
[If you're more a book borrower than a book buyer, you're still welcome to participate with the books that you've been meaning to read and haven't!]
On my TBR

Balefire by Cate Tiernan
After seventeen-year-old Thais Allard loses her widowed father in a tragic car accident, she is forced to leave the only home she's ever known to live with a total stranger in New Orleans. New Orleans greets Thais with many secrets and mysteries, but none as unbelievable as the moment she comes face to face with the impossible — an identical twin, Clio.
 Thais soon learns that she and the twin she never knew come from a family of witches, that she possesses astonishing powers, and that she, along with Clio, has a key role in Balefire, the coven she was born into. Fiery Clio is less than thrilled to have to share the spotlight, but the twins must learn to combine their powers in order to complete a rite that will transform their lives and the coven forever.

I bought Balefire awhile back on pure cover appeal.  Well, that an title appeal - I just thought it was a great combination.  And the title was full of too much interestingness for me to pass up.  But I really haven't got a clue what it's about or if it's any good, or when I'll ever get to it...
So, any of you read this one?  Love it, hate it, want it?

What's lurking in your TBR?


  1. Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins is definitely lurking in my TBR pile. I feel like I'm the ONLY person who hasn't read it. I loved Catching Fire so I really don't know that the hold up is.

  2. I haven't read this one but would once again like to comment that the cover is reminiscent of CatDog from Nickelodeon. That is all.

  3. While I have never heard of this book before, the Goodreads Summary makes it sound almost identical to Twitches (twin girls separated at birth who meet later and are both witches and have to combine powers to conquer evil). I haven't read Twitches either, but I would be interested in finding out which one was written first because the other one is probably just a rip-off of the first one. That's my thoughts on this book!

  4. Balefire is an AMAZING series! Tiernan is definitely one of my favorite YA Authors. If you have the chance, READ IT! It's filled with dark magick, lust, and the peculiar town of New Orleans makes this a swoon-worthy read!

    On my TBR List is definitely Dead Rules, The Devouring, and Shadow Hills!


Tell me all your thoughts.
Let's be best friends.
