REVIEW: Clockwise by Elle Strauss

Clockwise (Clockwise, #1) 
 Clockwise (1)
by Elle Strauss 

Genre(s): Young Adult, Science Fiction, Historical Fiction
Pages: 288
Published: Nov 2011
Publisher: All Night Reads and ESB Publishing

Official Summary:  "Casey Donovan has issues: hair, height and uncontrollable trips to the 19th century. She accidentally takes Nate Mackenzie, cutest boy in the school, to 1860. Protocol pressures her to dub Nate her brother. Does he spark with romance or protectiveness, when a handsome, rich, unwanted suitor intervenes?

Back in the present, the social ladder is as before: Casey at the bottom rung, Nate at the top. But now her heart is broken, her best friend is mad, her parents are split up, and police escort her younger brother home. The only thing worse would be taking Nate back to the past again.

Which of course, she does."

Review:  This is a light-hearted time-travel. Part adventure, some disaster, a dash of comedy and an edge of romance. While many things are not very well explained and the summary of the book pretty much covers everything, I did still overall enjoy it.

Slowing the Pace

Hey everyone, just a heads up, I am not going to be around much in the next month and a half.  Right now I have an injured fingers and side on my hand and the doctors are saying the absolute worst thing I can do is type.  So no blogging much until healed.  Estimated time 1-3 weeks, pending how much I can rest it (longer and more painful if I don't).  By then, it will be full holiday swing.  Work will be insanely busy plus plans with family/friends. 

I will still share some posts.  I have a few giveaways planed for the rest of the year, plus a few challenges for the new year I will share later.  But reviews and other posts will be more scarce for awhile.  I don't plan to completely disappear.  But I will seem quite over the next 6 weeks.  But I am already planning for a packed New Year!
