 Clock Rewinders on a Book Binge: 7/15/12
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/authors/publishers/etc during the week, and talk about the books they plan on reading in the coming week.

Smash Attack Reads Recap

In the life of Smash 

ZOMG! In October, The Readiacs are hosting the blog tour for Middle Ground by Katie Kacvinsky, the sequel to Awaken. My name was given to them as a fan so they invited me! I LOVED Awaken. I tried requesting a Middle Ground ARC from the publisher but their email bounced. I’ve also been stalking NetGalley for it, so this made my week! I also signed up for the Kismet tour of Alice in Zombieland. I PRAY I get accepted!

Um, not much else going on peeps. I scrapbooked and toyed around with the idea of working part-time at the scrap store since they are hiring, and they seemed enthused when we talked about it. But it’s minimum wage and very low hours, and not exactly down the street from me. T wasn’t on board with the idea. It would give me the opportunity to study for my licensing exam, which I am finally registering for. Ah well. Next week, I’m attending a networking event for social workers. I hope it leads to something.

Attended the Not So YA book club to talk about Shadow and Bone. They are all rockstars and I am so glad to have met them.

  1. I signed up for that Kismet tour, too! Crossing my fingers that we both get on it–love Gena Showalter. :)

    Iiiinteresting search terms this week…we can always use some more Big Dick Richie.

  2. Kt says:

    Thanks for helping me to spread the word. Good luck on the job hunt!

  3. Your search terms this week are very saucy to say the least. Good Luck on the job front, but enjoy the time you do have. I’m so glad I largely missed the GR-drama and only came onto it after the fact. Geesh! I like my little corner of the blogosphere where I only hang with cool and awesome people.

    • So saucy, but am I complaining? ;)
      DRAMA! We hate it yet thrive in it. Why is society like that? I think people are so bored with their own lives. It’s how the breathe some sort of life into themselves. Get a focking hobby instead.

    Good luck with the job hunt! Hopefully, that social networking will get you some good leads. It must be awesome to have a book club that meets in person! I don’t know that I could get anyone around here interested in that sort of thing. Hmmmm…..maybe a new project.

    I LOVE your search terms. They always make me giggle. Stacia Kane had it right. What the fuck? It seems like every time I check my email or Twitter any more there is always some new drama. Don’t people have enough going on in their lives?

    • The book club peeps are wicked cool and I’m so happy to have one! I was actually planning on starting one when I moved here, but I’m glad someone beat me to it. :) DO IT!!!

      Stacia Kane’s post was so raw and true. People are bored and unfulfilled with their own lives…

  5. hahahaha! HUGE DICKS! Perfect search term, if you ask me.

    Thanks for linking up to BoB. I completely forgot about it. Probably because I was too busy thinking about the site yesterday. *face palm*

    Stop the GR bullies is probably one of the most ironic websites ever. As the book blogging community gets bigger, though, I think we’ll continue to see shit like this.

    And best of luck with the job search. *hugs* I hope you find something soon and that it’s amazing!

    • HUGE DICKS is a very valid search term.
      Yay for BoB! Oh, I need to sign up for Doin it Dirty!
      That website is laughable, right?
      I hope I find something amazing, too! T mentioned working with HIV patients the other day. Sounds difficult but I’m wicked interested…

  6. Ruby says:

    That’s a pretty awesome audiobook win! Go you!

    I got a copy of Alice in Zombieland at BEA, so if you don’t get on the tour, you’re welcome to borrow it.

  7. I saw Meljean’s Ranting Grannies pic the other day and just about died laughing. Lol! Meljean rocks!

  8. Mandee J says:

    Another awesome post-Smash!
    Thanks for keeping me updated on bullies, hotness, & bookishly awesome happenings!
    You rock!!

  9. Sarah says:

    I’m super annoyed that Mockingjay is going to be two movies long. It’s so unnecessary! And yum Chris Hemsworth!!!

    Good luck at your social worker networking thingy and hope you have an awesome week :)
