Clock Rewinders on a Book Binge is where Tara @ 25 Hour Books and Amanda @ On a Book BenderÂ recap and share blog events from the week, and talk about what they’re reading.Â Now they’re letting the rest of us join in the fun! Head over to Amanda’s blog if you’d like to participate and link up.
- A 4 star review of The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss
- I announced the winner of my giveaway for the Ruby’s Reads Birthday Giveaway Hop
- A 3 star review of Spellcaster by Cara Lynn Shultz
- I got assigned a spot on the Ruby’s Reads debate team!
- I’m starting the process of migrating this blog to WordPress, with help from Cialina at Paper Wings Design Studio.
- I bullied my way into a mini-NaNoWriMo for this week with fellow writer/bloggers Amanda, Kelly, and Hannah. We each set our own writing goals for the week, and now we’re going to try to meet them.
- By far the biggest news this week was the plagiarism scandal involving The Story Siren. I watched the embarrassing horror show all week and have decided to no longer follow Kristi via blog or Twitter. I will continue to participate in the Debut Author Challenge because I care deeply about supporting new authors, but I will not be linking back to Kristi’s DAC page. I’ll also no longer be participating in IMM, but you can find bookish updates on this meme in the future.
- Alexis at Reflections of a Bookaholic discussed a Favorite Childhood Character – Laura Ingalls. It brought back lots of fond memories for me.
- Midnyte Reader gave an amazing day-by-day recap of the World Horror Convention!
- In continuing efforts to torture me, Aylee at Recovering Potter Addict posted another Waiting on Wednesday from a Big Six publisher’s catalog.
- The hilarious team at Forever Young Adult started a new series highlighting Dolly Parton’s greatest hits, and OF COURSE opened with one of their signature recaps – of Steel Magnolias!
- steampunk boston terrier – I’m sure this person was incredibly disappointed, but now I feel the need to turn my Boston into a steampunk mascot for the blog!
- skottie young comic book brave – How this person wound up here, I have no idea.
- talk bubble – Good luck with that.
Ebooks from the library:
- Slaughterhouse: The Shocking Story of Greed, Neglect, and Inhumane Treatment Inside the U.S. Meat Industry by Gail A. Eisnitz
- Drop Dead Healthy by A. J. Jacobs
- The Immortal Rules by Julie Kagawa – Thank you NetGalley and Harlequin!
That’s it for now. Have a great week!
