Clock Rewinders on a Book Binge is the brain-child of Tara from 25-Hour Books and Amanda from On A Book Bender. I am using it to share what has happened this past week on my blog, what is going on in the blogosphere, and also my reads and what incoming books I have received.
Recap on Much Loved BooksMonday- Drummer Girl was a surprising read that I could not put down.[review]
Tuesday- One of my most anticipated 2013 releases, but did it live up to my expectations, take a look and see [review]
Wednesday- Is it November yet, check out my Waiting On Wednesday to see what I'm waiting for.
Thursday- I am so sad to see this series coming to an end, check out my review for Fall of Night.
Friday- Slide was a unique book in 2011, see what I thought of Imposter, the latest addition to the series by Jill Hathaway.
In my worldI got to see Rachel Caine in Liverpool on Monday, and I got to meet up with a few other people there. Eleanor and Jen are two who I previously met last year, but I also got to meet Lisa from A Life Bound By Books, who was over here for the month.
We also met up on Thursday and spent a few hours in town book shopping and we got some amazing bargains.
This Friday I will be taking part in the Roy Castle Dream Walk for my Dad. This is the second time I have participated and I am looking forward to it.
What's going on in the blogosphereAnna Banks has a pre-order bonus content going. If you pre-order Of Triton or purchase it between the dates of May 28th through June 2nd 2013 and send proof you get some bonus content from Of Poseidon, and trhe first chapter of Of Triton.

Cover for Aleigant, the third book in the Divergent Series by Veronica Roth, has been released. Both the USA and the UK version. Which one is your favourite. I love the USA versions but I have to admit I prefer this UK version to the previous UK covers of the series.

Tidal by Amanda Hocking from publisher
I kinda went a bit crazy with the book buying this week, although I didn't actually spend that much money. I got two sets of £10 gift cards, one off a baby in work who has just moved up, and one off a friend who I gave a tone of books to. So I got Scarlet and The Rising for £10.06 from Amazon, so I really only paid 6p of my own money.
I got The Art of Fielding, Etiquette & Espionage, Under the Never Sky, Fallen Grace, Heat Stroke and Fourth Grave Beneath My Feet from The Works, and for them all it was under £10. I also got Chill Factor, Windfall and Firestorm from The Works, my friend picked them up for me from her shop and they cost just over £3
The Vampire Stalker was only £1.50 at a discount book shop in town so I couldn't resist picking up this bargain.
Gated sounds like an interesting read so I am looking forward to reading this one. Lingerie Wars sounds like it will be a fun read and a nice change to what I have been reading lately.
I received Tidal from the publisher, however I have not read the previous books in this series so I will probably look for a new home for this book.
