Clock Rewinders (1): Replacing the IMM Feature

Posted April 29th, 2012 by in *Review / 25 comments

Clock Rewinders on a Book Binge is where Tara @ 25 Hour Books and Amanda @ On a Book Bender shamelessly plug each other, share the fantastic posts, giveaways, or whatever else we’ve found and loved by other awesome bloggers (or authors!) during the week, and talk about the books we plan on reading in the coming week.

Operation TBR Reduction Button

Stephanie @ Once Upon a Chapter is starting her own feature to reduce her TBR pile, she is calling it Operation: TBR Reduction and you can join her!

Books We Received:

Please be aware that showing off books is only a small part of this feature! This feature is a way to showcase not only what has been happening all week long on Pages of Forbidden Love but also showcase other bloggers and regular life activites.

I know you can all read, since we are book readers, that the title of my Clock Rewinders post this week is Replacing the IMM Feature. I had actually been looking at Clock Rewinders posts for several weeks before the DRAMA happened! I was already thinking about switching over to this meme because I always want to do recap posts and spread the word about great blog posts I read all week long but I never am motivated to do this. So this feature allows me to get motivated to make this type of post happen. I do hope you enjoy the fact that I decided to make this switch for several personal reasons.

*Please note that the video this week does express our concern about the DRAMA and that it is easy to just link up a person instead of copy and pasting their posts. I’m not going to get into the DRAMA, I’m just going to say I’m no longer doing the IMM feature, our books received video will now be a part of Clock Rewinders, unless I hear from Amanda or Tara that this is not allowed. I simply feel that linking or giving credit is not hard to do, copy and pasting from someone else is wrong. No disrespect to The Story Siren is intended.*

    Amazing haul guys !! AHHH I absolutely love your vlogs 😉
    Don’t worry Alexa, you pronounced my name right ;). Hope you like the book 🙂 !!
    Seriously you’re hilarious : everytime I head to your blog to watch your weekly vlog I know I’m going to have fun with the both of you and also see great books !! Happy reading =)

  2. The Blonde Zombie

    I’m soooo glad you’re sticking with the vlogs, you’re sooo funny!

    I’m no longing following TSS either, or reading any IMM posts that link to her, so I’m glad you’re doing your own thing. I think Smash does this feature too and Tynga is doing a Stacking The Shelves theme which is another alternative. 🙂

    Happy Reading!

  3. Liz. R

    Love the new feature! I saw your Anna Dressed in Blood review, I really want to read that one! And great books this week! Die for Me was really good, I hope you enjoy it. And you and Johnny are so funny, I always love watching your videos. Happy reading! 🙂

  4. The Blonde Zombie

    Ooh, Johnny! Love the t-shirt! I don’t suppose you could recommend a few graphic novels for a 9 year old? He loves super hero’s and as long as they don’t contain sex, drugs and the high end swear ends I’d love some ideas! 🙂

      yeah of course… i have a huge list I can give to your son. and to you even! I have been interested in comics since I was three years old. My mom would take me to the grocery store with her and I found the artwork fascinating. That spurned my interest to read and by the age of about 4 is, I was reading. Certain comics actually tell more than just a story about costumed superheroes or a web slinging wise guy. Xmen, for example, actually is about the civil rights movement and equality. Professor X is MLK as he is in search of equality through peaceful measures and Magneto represented Malcom X due to his militaristic stance and his belief in mutant dominance. Comics are a teaching tool. Go ahead and ask me what SpiderMan and Superman mean to the world.

      and now for your list….
      SUPERMAN EARTH ONE
      SPIDERMAN BLUE
      MARVEL COMICS : HOUSE OF M
      anything Avengers. Some of their stuff from the 90’s-early 2000’s are just plain fun.
      BATMAN YEAR ONE– might be a lil intense but nothing objectional
      BATMAN KNIGHTFALL– if he is gonna watch the new movie, chapter one might be interesting to him. Batman gets his back broken in the final panel. read my review.
      XMEN- ONSLAUGHT
      XMEN- THE TWELVE
      I do remember that as a child, THE DEATH OF SUPERMAN made a big difference on my life.
      ANYTHING FANTASTIC FOUR!! That is my dad’s favorite comic

      feel free to hit me up for any other advice

  5. Amanda @ On a Book Bender

    bwahahaha. My boyfriend and I have had the same argument about hardback/hardcover. Alexa, I have proof hardback is an accepted term. It’s used on Book Depository.

    Glad you’ve joined the Clock Rewinders madness! 😉

  6. Amy J

    LOL! Hilarious!
    My husband is cracking up at the snark!
    I hope you enjoy the Shannon Stacey book. That was my favorite one!!
    I actually did a book haul post this week as well. I got some Manga’s for my daughter because she is addicted to them too.

  7. Andrea @ The Bookish Babe

    This is the first time I’ve ever seen this feature. I really like it. And your vlog was great. I was glad to see a mention of Elodie. She’s a sweetheart. I’m looking forward to the next Clock Rewinders post. Have a great week!

  8. Amy @ bookgoonie

    Cracking me up. Glad you joined Clock Rewinders, because now I’ve found you and can stalk you too. WOW! Being off twitter all week, I must of missed some big DRAMA. Must investigate.

  9. Ruby

    Aaaactually, I think I’d rather see Johnny in a Superman t-shirt.

    I love your two-person vlog. It’s so much more fun that one person doing all the talking.

    P.S. No one cares if that Jaci Burton cover is airbrushed. No one.

    • themetalship

      If I even tried putting a Superman tshirt on, it might immediately burst into flames once it gets in contact with my flesh. and yes…everyone should care if those covers are airbrushed. total fakes. I bet he only has a 4 pack. not a syxx pac like this guy 😉

  10. Reading Angel

    First up, Duke says SHIRT OFF- SHIRT OFF – SHIRT OFF!!!!
    If I need to email that to Johnny I DO KNOW HIS EMAIL ;P

    I saw Forever Yours (is that the name, now I’m having a forgetful moment) anyway, that contemp book, in Walmart this week. I picked it up, read the back, and really wanted to get it, but saw it was book 3 and put it back to get #1 later. If they basically stand-alone and that is the best though I may go back and get it!! 🙂

    • themetalship

      Oh yes… the shirt is coming off duke. been training even harder at the gym. this video needs to go viral lol. Spread the word to all your friends!!

  11. Loretta @ Between The Pages

    Hahaha. This video was funny!!
    Those covers with the umm sports players, are pretty amazing. YES. They were the WHOLE post. Haha. I need to read them!! I need to get them…
    Enjoy all of your books guys!
    Happy Reading!!

    I’m glad I stopped doing weekend posts, I didn’t have any dilemmas. I’m glad you guys are doing this feature though, I like it!
    Ive had Die For Me since it came out. I even met the author. But I STILL haven’t read it. I think I will make sure I do that in May.

    • themetalship

      maybe….just maybe….your request shall be fulfilled 😉 And I might dance but not in the sense you think. tell your friends. it’ll be epic!
