Clock Rewinders on a Book Binge is where Tara @ 25 Hour Books and Amanda @ On a Book Bender shamelessly plug each other, share the fantastic posts, giveaways, or whatever else they’ve found and loved by other awesome bloggers (or authors!) during the week, and talk about the books they plan on reading in the coming week.

 The Corner Newsstand

(This week on Creativity’s Corner) 

I reviewed A Million Suns by Beth Revis 

I talked about some decisions that seemed really good at the time that make my life suck now.


Behind the Desk

(Behind the scenes and non-post related events)

The April Page Count Contest  over at Reading Angel is wrapping up, and I didn’t even come CLOSE to winning. I had lots of fun and got lots of reading done though, and that’s what counts, right?

I’m considering signing up for Operation: TBR Reduction over at Once Upon a Chapter, but I need to figure out a way to tweak it so that it works for me, since I so rarely actually BUY the books. The TBR that’s out of control for me is the list! It’s nearing the 300 mark and I add several to it each day!

I began (serious) planning for a major event coming up in July on the blog. Can’t say anything specific yet, but it’s gonna be so much fun!!! :D On the downside, I also received my GRE prep materials this week – much less fun planning and studying for those, let me tell you! :(

Around the Corner

(Blog posts I found awesome this week)

Danny talked about why we like paranormal stories.

The Book Rat and a few of her friends are hosting the Fairy Tale Fortnight – it’s almost over, but all the posts are really awesome.

With all the negativity going around this week it was nice to see a post called Book Bloggers that Rock! [on The Book Cellar]

Reading Digest

(Books I’ve read in the past week and books I plan to read next)

Read this week:

Hourglass CoverGirl of Fire and Thorns CoverEragon Cover

This week I finished Hourglass by Myra McEntire, and I’m in the middle of Girl of Fire and Thorns by Rae Carson and Eragon by Christopher Paolini. I’ve also been in the middle of The Map of Time by Felix J. Palma for about three weeks now.

Starters CoverEldest CoverGrave Mercy cover

Next I should be picking up Starters by Lissa Price and then, I hope Eldest by Christopher Paolini and Grave Mercy by Robin Lafevers.

And that’s my weekly round-up! Let me know what you think of the new meme, and let me know if you think I’ve missed out on an awesome post you saw around the blogosphere this week!

    Nice new meme! Will be curious to hear what you think about Starters, as it looks intriguing. Scary cover, but sounds like a good story! Enjoy your week!

  2. Amanda @ On a Book Bender says:

    I loved Grave Mercy! I hope you do, too!

    The GRE sucks. I am so glad to be done with the whole grad school thing. :)

    Yeah the cover put me off for a while, but the plot sounds really good! I've been reading a lot of straight fantasy/paranormal recently, so I'm hoping a dystopian will break it up nicely =)

  4. Anne says:

    A lot of people are saying they loved Grave Mercy! I can't wait to read it!

    Yeah, I like school, so I'm glad I still have some ahead of me, but the GRE part sucks, especially since I haven't taken math in, oh, about seven years! Ah well, that's what the study books are for.

  5. Alexa says:

    I still need to read Hourglass, now that some people are already getting Timepiece it is the perfect time to play catch up. :)

    Grave Mercy was really great, although at times it reads more like an adult book so just be prepared for that.

    I always meant to read Eldest after reading Eragon years ago and never got around to it. I'm afraid at this point that I would just need to re-read Eragon to even hope to understand what is going on for Eldest. I hope you end up enjoying that series though.

    The Operation TBR is actually for any book that you bring into your house such as review books and even library books. I'm not sure if those increases the number but she is counting all books not just the ones you bought.

    Have a great week. Happy reading!

    Just finished Hourglass today and I LOVED it.

    Ooh, looking forward to the July surprise on the blog…

    And sorry you have to do all those apps over again. :( but better you end up at the right place in the right program than unhappy in the wrong one, you know?

    Wow! April 30th and this just ping backed to me! I hope you do decide to join! I’m sure there is a way to tweak it to fit your needs. :)

Many older posts are currently under reconstruction. Please excuse the inconvenience.
