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. [Description borrowed from On a Book Bender]

Behind the Desk
(My life behind the scenes)

  • Okay, so I said this once, but Alissa from The Grammarian’s Reviews and I launched sign ups for The Book Sessions this week! There are still spaces left on the first session which will be featuring several YA contemporary novels. Not into YA Contemp? Don’t worry, the theme changes for each session. Just a little blurb from the post so you get an idea of what this is all about [see the original post for full details]:

The Book Sessions, hosted by Alissa from The Grammarian’s Reviews and Anne from Creativity’s Corner, are a cross between a Read-Along and a Book Club. Each session will feature 2-5 books of a specific genre or theme that we will be both reading and discussing over the course of several months. The discussions are intended to provide connections between involved readers and spark discussions that go beyond book reviewing and blogging.

  • In other news, I’m considering signing up for the Fairy Metal Thunder read-along. I know, I know, I totally need one more thing on my plate *sarcasm*! But I’ve already downloaded it on my Nook, and I’m planning to read it eventually anyway, right? And there’s PRIZES! and fun scavenger hunt stuffs, and yeah, I’m thinking about it. If you’d like to join, the book is free on most ebook devices (I think it was $0.99 on my Nook, but still, that’s cheap, right?) Check out the link to sign up!

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

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

Read:
  • The Selection by Kiera Cass – I liked the book, and then remembered all the drama surrounding it. Have I mentioned how much I HATE drama lately?
  • Shade by Jeri Smith-Ready – I can understand why everyone loves this series, and I will probably be continuing the series eventually.
  • Hush Money by Susan Bischoff – the first indie book that hasn’t disappointed me in a long time. It has restored my faith! Well, a little anyway.
  • Waterfall by Lisa T. Bergren – Reading this at the same time as Outlander? Stupidest idea I EVER had. I liked it, but would have liked it much better if I hadn’t been comparing the two the whole time. *sigh* Silly me!

Currently Reading:

  • Outlander by Diana Gabaldon – Why is it I always put off reading the required chapters for this until Sunday night?
  • Insurgent by Veronica Roth – A little slower than Divergent so far, but I’m still intrigued.
  • Scarlet Fever by Maureen Johnson – I might end up putting this one down officially because I’m not in the mood, not because it’s bad or anything.
  • On the Nook: Blackwood by Gwenda Bond – Not too far in, so I don’t really have an opinion yet.
  • Listening: The Eleventh Plague by Jeff Hirsch, Irises by Francisco X. Stork and Inkheart by Cornelia Funke. So far the only one I’m excited about returning to is Inkheart which is a re-read (listen) for me. I may have to admit defeat and just decide I’m not cut out for new audiobooks…

Up Next:

  • My Soul to Take by Rachel Vincent
  • Kiss of Frost by Jennifer Estep
  • Graveminder by Melissa Marr and Beauty Queens by Libba Bray for joint reviews coming up.

And that was my week! If you have any great posts that you think I missed, please let me know!

  1. I’m not the only one behind on my Outlander reading! I have about 4 chapters to go before I can write up my post … must do better next week! :)

    • Anne says:

      Oh you’re definitely not. Every single week so far I’ve done the reading and questions THE NIGHT BEFORE they were due. Usually starting, oh, about 7:30 pm. Yeah, I procrastinate lol.

  2. Ahh, I loved Beauty Queens! Hope you enjoy that one!

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