Clock Rewinders #14

Clock Rewinders is the brain-child of Tara from 25-Hour Books and Amanda from On A Book Bender, showcasing the past week on the blog, in the blogosphere, books, the weird and the wonderful.

I didn’t do a Clock Rewinders post last Sunday because I’ve been feeling so stressed and exhausted so this week’s will sum up the past two weeks. My incoming will be in a Showcase Sunday post as I may have bought a few recently.. Stress relief. You know. *cough*

The Past (Two) Weeks at Once Upon A Time

Week One

Week Two

Around The Blogosphere
Not Quite The Blogosphere
  • It was a couple of weeks ago now that the film trailer for Cloud Atlas was released but it wowed me so much that I had to make sure you guys have seen it. This is proof that you should never judge a book by its’ cover because I’ve always assumed Cloud Atlas was one of those life-changing, depressing contemporary novels but lo-and-behold it’s actually 6 different stories exploring how history is constantly repeating itself. It’s a historical, a contemporary, and a futuristic dystopian all in one and I nabbed a copy of the book as soon as I was able. And will be seeing this movie. Watch the trailer!!
  • I love this ‘If You Liked The Hunger Games‘ flowchart which helps you to choose your next read.
  • It has been confirmed that The Hobbit will now be a trilogy as opposed to the originally planned two movies. Geek-squee!!
My (Two) Weeks

I’ve started a personal blog which I haven’t had chance to update in the past week, and I’ve also blogged a little on my gaming blog as I am focusing a fair bit on gaming at the moment. When I’m exhausted I turn to gaming and I’ve really been playing a lot of WoW before the new expansion comes out.

What Am I Reading?

Finished: Grave Dance by Kalayna Price

Started: FrostFire by Zoë Marriott

What Next?  I don’t know! There are so many!

I’ve been so stressed and not with it lately that I haven’t read much at all in the past couple of weeks.

  1. I can’t imagine keeping up three blogs. I can barely do the necessary for one.

    Looking forward to seeing what you think f The Masque of Red Death. I was given a copy recently, so I’m curious to know if I need to bump it up my TBR pile.

    • Oh I never said I keep up with the other two. ;) My gaming blog is the oldest of the three and I never had it in me to get rid of it, so every other month I have a small burst of posts. Haha. My personal blog is just there for when I have the overwhelming urge to post something that doesn’t fit the other two. My book blog is still my main blog and the one I want to keep up with. :D

      I haven’t got a copy of Masque of the Red Death just yet but I’ve heard amaazing things.

  2. I’m onyl just catching up from the last two weeks. It’s hard to go out and do things and keep up the reading/blogging.
    Ellie’s most recent post ..Incoming! (Bumper Edition)

  3. *huggles you* I hope the next few weeks are less stressful for you!

    PS. If the boyfriend and I don’t work out, I’m all yours.
