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.

  1. Yay for starting a new blog! I accept all responsibility. :)

    I forgot about Gaby’s post about the libraries! I loooove my library! And that post on Strange Ink FREAKS ME OUT … seriously, my anxiety comes out when I read things about all the great books I’ll never get to read. Are vampires real? Can I just get bit by one so that I have ALL THE TIME to read everything?

    Have another great week, Anne!!! :)

      I think we just have to stop thinking about it in terms of “how much can I read before I die” and start just asking “what am I going to read next?” It’s the only way to get out of the vicious cycle of depression lol.

  2. I saw Maggie Stiefvater’s post on literary rape and thought it was quite good. I also read someone else’s. David James’s? They all bring up some very valid points about how women and girls are portrayed in books.

    • I saw that, too … I agree with Maggie — I mean, there are so many other things that be done in a book besides rape. It just seems like an unnecessary thing for an author to write about in most situations.

      • Anne says:

        I agree, especially in a book that’s not *meant* to focus on rape. I mean, there are some that that’s the driving force, and okay, I get it, it’s something we need to talk about. But the other one – Seanan McGuire’s article – was talking about how someone asked her WHEN she was going to have her strong female characters raped in her non-rape-centric books. THAT makes me very stabby!
