In this alternate Victorian world, there are clock mechanics responsible for keeping the #Clocks running so time doesn't stop. Unfortunately, there are also mysterious bombings of clock towers that are threatening life in England, and many people think it's one of the clock mechanics.
#audioeating with my falafel and salad lunch! One of my favorite things about participating in the #readathon is preparing food the night before! 😋 Made this falafel, tzatziki sauce, and some yummy avocado dip last night so I could attempt to be relatively healthy today. 🤷🏻♀️
It‘s #Readathon time, y‘all! I‘m gonna turn on my audiobook and cook breakfast soon as I post this.
1. Middle of Canada.
2. I‘m excited to finish THE RED by Tiffany Reisz
3. Corn twists. I bought ‘em as a last hurrah before I go totes healthy.
4. I take loooooooooooong walks whenever the weather allows.
5. This is my 22nd consecutive Readathon, so I don‘t see myself shaking things up much. I might read a magazine again? I dunno.
Can anyone help @TheBookDream with Apps that record time reading that can be used in the #24B4Monday #Readathon. Like many of us TheBookDream has struggled with the iPhone / iPad timer resetting itself. I use Leio to record my reading time but this is tied with the books read. Does anyone know of a good app for recording time that doesn‘t reset itself?
I usually hate time travel books so I don‘t knowing buy them. So the best your going to get is Timekeeper.
The last good time travel book I Read was The Last Magician. It‘s out for a traveling book so no pictures currently.
I had suspected him for idk, revenge type feelings. For being forced to leave her, getting fired, and shunned but wow, did Not expect THAT 😮😮😮 I guess all that guilt is what had him helping Danny out?? Tho maybe he was also starting to feel threatened so that's why he butted in saying Danny wasn't well yet 🤔🤔 #amreading
COLTON WHAT HAPPENED 😱😱 was it Brandon?! Another mechanic?! Someone def after Danny!
Slow to start, this book really picked up steam halfway through.
I know, I know, I‘m hopeless. I couldn‘t resist the pun. 😂
I knew very little about the storyline, so was pleasantly surprised by my hands down favorite character, Colton. But I won‘t say any more about why he is so adorably awesome, to avoid spoilers.
This is the 2nd #steampunk book that I have ever read; definitely becoming a fan of the genre!
1. Maya had her first track meet on Sunday, and scored 2nd overall in long jump with 3 amazing jumps! She had never done it before, and beat both boys and girls 4 years older than her. 💪🏼💪🏼
2. Yogurt and berry parfait
3. Lots of clocks.
4. A decorative pillow.
Sorry I'm late posting my #steampunkgoespostal. I love it all. @Shadowfat as quite a challenge because I have read or own most of the big names main steam Steampunk novels. But she did a great job. And I have never seen that edition of the difference engine. Thank you soooooo much. !
1. So many... Chris Evans, Jason Momoa, Joe Manganiello. I like them buff. And Colin Farrell. And 1960's Warren Beatty.
2. Today its green.
3. Timekeeper at 414 pages. (Tagged)
4. I'm assuming this is a fun mission bc I'd be useless for a serious mission so I'm going with Luna Lovegood, Khal Drogo, Thor (comic books count!) & Neville Hammersmith.
5. I saw @JuliaTheBookNerd @OriginalCyn620 @MelAnn @2BR02B
Oh my goodness I love this book. The world-building is amazing, the characters are great, and the story is so good. It kept me guessing until the end. There were a lot of really cool moments with the text too, the way it would sometimes fade or "wiggle" across the page.
Colton and Danny's relationship was so sweet. I love them both so much and I just want to see them happy. I can't wait to read the next one.
"Thete comes a moment when time seems to slip faster, running long then short, Shadow shining as the sun climbs. It's the moment, he decided, when you're no longer a child. When the concept of time and the need for more of it come together and make you Perks. Make you yearn for the longer days, the lazy days, before you knew what time passing actually meant." (239, PB, 1st)
Colton's smile return slowly. Denny watched in subdued wonder as strands of golden time threaded across Colton's body, weaving under and around his arms, around his neck, hugging his torso, looping curlicues between his fingers. Danny had a sudden and irrational jealousy, then. He wanted to be that golden and that close. He wanted to wrap himself around Colton's body, to be everywhere, all at once, and feel the strength and power of him.
This is a book that I've been anticipating reading for a while now. I love the steampunk aesthetic and from what I have heard from a friend that read it there is a queer character? Correct me if I'm wrong. Either way I'm super excited for this one.
Really liked this genre-blending story: steampunk, fantasy, time bending, alternate history with LBGTQ+ themes. But also a story of first love, family, and friendship. Good characters & good world building—and something fresh. Looking forward to next book. 🎧 Audiobook was nicely performed by Gary Furlong. It took me a little bit to warm up to him, but then I was drawn in.
Happy New Year Littens! ICYMI, our December/January book club selection is TIMEKEEPER by Tara Sim. Join us reading it, as well as the discussion in #AsianLitChat at the end of January!
We're also discussing it over on Goodreads, if that's your jam: https://www.goodreads.com/topic/group_folder/351945?group_id=227162
Nice book, easy and quick read. I choose it for the #booked2018 for an uncoventional romance. Thanks for the tip I got on GR. @Cinfhen @4thhouseontheleft @BarbaraTheBibliophage
Also book 7 of the #litsyAtoZ @BookishMarginalia book 12/275
I really enjoyed this world! The concepts of the clock and actual time being so intertwined was so cool! Though this is insta-lovey, I actually really enjoyed it and kept rooting for Colton and Danny (who were adorable!)
I really felt for Danny...dude did not have a good few years and his mom was definitely not helping. The ending with her really did help me understand her and Danny's love for her though.
1. Drinking coffee and finishing Timekeeper. If you are looking for a book for #booked2018 #unconventionalromance then I recommend this one! And the sequel is coming out soon!
2. Reading, of course📚
3. Prepared holiday cards and packages so I can go to the post office in the morning📮
4. Shout out to @theshrinkette for posting about this book on Twitter and @CoffeeAndABook for translating turnbeutel 😂
It has been an absolutely hectic couple weeks. It's been hard snapping pics between working late hours and the kitten deciding to. . . rearrange things 😂 But anyway, New posts on the blog from this week and here's a new book for my #BeatTheBacklist TBR!
Aw, man, this was exactly what I wanted: magic clocks, dead/missing gods, time-centric shenanigans, families in flux, stories as unifying forces, good people who sometimes do bad things, the changing face of technology, and openly gay boys in love. I'll eagerly await the sequel.
The audio production's good too, even if the narrator does pronounce "shone" the American way (my audio pet peeve). #queerbooks
Did you know that today is #ReadABookDay? I made a list of #ya books that feature and discuss illiteracy. Are there any books you'd add to this list? https://yawednesdays.com/2017/09/06/readabook-day-reading-list/

I'm really starting to like the steam punk genre for real.
I really love the characterization of Daniel Hart. His struggle to control his emotions was so authentic. I was fascinated by his relationship with Colton (😍), Cassie, Brandon, and his mother.
The old world mythology was spectacular!
Very pleased with this read. Looking forward to the sequel.

I'm having a serious case of the Mondays. The above is serious wish fulfillment.
In reality, I'm reading at my desk from the Kindle desktop reader. Not nearly so cozy.
I'm perking myself up by saying hi all my new followers. I'm assuming you're here to join me for #TBRBingo. WELCOME!
