Clock Rewinders & Stacking the Shevles

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 Books

Sunday: Check out my review of Geek Girl by Holly Smale
Monday: A unforgettable read, my review of Unremembered by Jessica Brody
Wednesday: My review of Shards & Ashes went up today
Thursday: Sever, my review of the final instalment in The Chemical Garden Trilogy

In my world

Yesterday I got to go to my first ever Random House Children's Publishers blogger brunch.  I got to meet a few bloggers I had previously met, and see a few new faces.  We learnt about some fantastic books being released this year and got to meet authors Jonathan Stroud and Amy McCulloch.  The event went on in London so I had to travel down there, but most importantly I tackled the tube by myself for the first time.
I am behind on my goodreads challenge by 7 books O_o and still tackling my February reads but I am hoping to pick up my pace very soon.

What's going on in the blogosphere

Tor have signed a book deal with Liz De Jager.  Liz was a UK blogger and ran My Favourite Books until they shuts it's doors in December 2012.

I have had the great pleasure to meet Liz on a few occasions while attending various blogger events and I am super excited for her.  To learn more about her book deal visit Tor's website.

As you can see I splurged on buying books this week but they are all books I have been wanting to read so I am looking forward to starting them, even though I don't know when I will.  I am a huge fan of Patricia Briggs so Frost Burned was pre-ordered last month and I want to just sit and read it now.
At the blogger event we got a few books to read, which I will do a separate post about in the week.  Going to blogger events also means requiring new books, while I took a bag full with me for other bloggers, I also obtained some back, I have all of these on my to-read list on goodreads so I am looking forward to reading them soon (hopefully)

What exciting things did you get this week?


  1. Ahh, Where the Wild Things Are. I love it. That's the first book I ever remember reading on my own, so it brings back great memories. :)

  2. Sounds like you had a fun time. I wish there were more events near my town. The Ruining was really good..messes with your mind! Also, I hear Let the Sky Fall is really good. Hope you enjoy all your books.
