Clock Rewinders on a Book Binge is the weekly recap feature created by Amanda @ On a Book Bender and Tara @ 25 Hour Books, where they shamelessly plug each other, share the fantastic posts, giveaways, or whatever else they’ve found and loved by other awesome bloggers (or authors!) during the week, and talk about the books they plan on reading in the coming week. Other people have been joining the party, and now I’ve got my dancing shoes on, too!

In Real Life
I’m in Atlanta this weekend, celebrating my 4th wedding anniversary, but mostly looking for a new place to live. Our agent emailed us Thursday afternoon to let us know she had something “come up” and wouldn’t be able to meet with us. She us gave the listing agent contact info for all the places she was going to show us. However, it being a holiday weekend, most of them aren’t available. T & I scrambled Thursday evening and found some places on our own and made some calls. We’ve got some stuff lined up now and pray it all works out. WISH US LUCK. We are totally running out of time!!!

Favorite Quotes of the Week
“His specialty was interrogation. Imagine it, gentlemen. Being strapped to a table so that you are entirely at the mercy of a monster such as this. A person who delights in your pain. A person to whom your screams are more delicious than a lover’s whisper. A creature who knows how to keep you alive while he skillfully and meticulously deconstructs those things that define you as human?”
― Jonathan Maberry, Dead of Night: A Zombie Novel
