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 we’ve found and loved by other awesome bloggers (or authors!) during the week, and talk about the books we plan on reading in the coming week.

The Corner Newsstand
(This week on Creativity’s Corner)

  • Monday for  NanowriMondays I discussed how I write and discovered I write conversations best.
  • Tuesday I reviewed Storm by Brigid Kemmerer – Great elemental storyline but very definitely a YA PNR.
  • Thursday I reviewed Seraphina by Rachel Hartman – love me some dragons!
  • Friday I discussed my difficulty writing reviews.

Behind the Desk
(My life behind the scenes)

How is it almost Thanksgiving already? HOW???

Right now I’m hanging out at one of my college friends’ house for the weekend. We haven’t seen each other since August, so it was definitely time. Yesterday we went to a HUGE Christmas craft show and I spent way more than I should have (but seriously, SUCH pretty jewelry). Oh and there were kittens and they let me HOLD ONE!

Me and the kitty

Isn’t it CUTE? SO FLUFFY!!! (Of course, it wouldn’t look at the camera so how would you know? lol)

Still working on those graduate applications. I swear it feels like I will NEVER be done with them…

 

Around the Corner
(Blog posts I found awesome since the last post)

  • Patti (Parajunkee’s View) complained about obscure music mentioned in books. I never really pay attention to be honest, but her thoughts are interesting.
  • Kristilyn (A Winter Writer) reminded us that to get better at something we must do it (aka practice).
  • Beth Revis (author of Across the Universe) gave us some insight into her writing process – specifically how she comes up with ideas.
  • Danny (Bewitched Bookworms) discussed review requests, and what makes her accept some and reject others.
