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. [Description and banner borrowed from On a Book Bender]
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!!! 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.
(Books I’ve read in the past week and books I plan to read next)
Read this week:
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.
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!
