    One thought on “Clockwise”

    1. Kindle freebie 9/30/16. 3.5 stars. This is a cute time travel novel about a high school girl named Casey, who keeps getting pulled back to the year 1860 at random times. The plot thickens when she accidentally pulls her hot classmate Nate back to the past with her. It starts out rather clichéd -- Casey is an awkward girl with a mad crush on one of the most popular guys in her school -- but the story gets much more complex and interesting as it goes along, especially toward the end. I was pleasa [...]

    2. Alot of this book I didn't like, parts I downright hated, but I'm giving it four stars anyway. Why? Because past the terrible start and cliched insecure/obsessive main character (stuff no guy wants to read about), there's actually a great, serious time travel story here. I just wish I could excise the first part of the book from my head, but since I can't I won't mention any of it and pretend I never read any of it either, except to say the beginning of this book is really, really bad - but stic [...]

    3. This was a cute book, typical YA but enjoyable and addictive nonetheless. The romance was sweet and Casey was really amusing. It was actually just what I needed during a book slump!

    4. Casey first time traveled at nine years old. She has no control over it but stress seems to induce the "trip" what she and her best friend call traveling. Casey always travels back to 1860 in the exact same location as she is in the present. She can be stuck there anywhere from a few hours to a few weeks but when she comes back not a single second has passed. She returns exactly the same except completely exhausted with dark rings around her eyes. Anything she is touching at the time also travel [...]

    5. This book is pure YA entertainment!Casey is so funny and likable.There's never a dull moment.There isn't too much unnecessary descriptions and details, which is always a plus in my book.I didn't like how Casey was the only one pining hard for Nate, and how insecure she was about herself.I know the author wanted to give her realistic feelings, but I feel she could be a bit more confident.As for Nate, he should have been more expressive towards her.It felt like unrequited love till the near end, I [...]

    6. Okay, what Tadiana said. And really, that's pretty much it. It starts off rather stereotypical and develops some nice twists and turns by the end. It's a solid 3.5 that climbs well enough throughout to prompt me to round up.

    7. So this was cute but a little off for me.Casey Donovan is not your normal teenager. She randomly gets sucked back in time - to the 1800's. When this happens, time doesn't change in her era, so that she always returns to the exact spot she left from. Handy. Only her best friend knows her secretoh and now the super hot football star Nate Mackenzie, who she accidentally took with her. I liked the characters. They were fun and light. Pretty much average teens, just with time travel happening. The pl [...]

    8. 3.5 starsThis 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.Casey is a typical teenager who is just trying to live her life. Yet at random, unknown intervals she finds herself thrust back in time. Particularly the 1860s. Sometimes it is for a few hours, other-times weeks she could be stuck there. While she [...]

    9. I have to admit I've encountered more than a few indie/self-published pieces throughout my exploration of the ebook market. And, let's not lie, 75-80% of those have been less than spectacular, and have featured characters, plots, and writing I have either struggled with or given up on entirely. After DFNing my latest indie novel, I have to admit I was slightly skeptical when I first started Clockwise. And while I do admit Clockwise has its fair share of typical YAness and stereotypes, (jock boy [...]

    10. obsessionwithbooksCLOCKWISE was kindly provided to me by the author Elle Strauss in exchange for my honest review.15 year-old Casey Donovan is your typical shy, awkward teen with a crush on the popular school jock that doesn’t seem to notice her. She also has a very big secret which no-one but her best-friend is aware of – she is a time traveler who without knowing how transports back in time to the 1800’s.Time stands still in the present when Casey time travels but she is able to feel whe [...]

    11. Who wouldn’t like a story about time travel, especially if you are a young adult living the day to day issues that are so much a part of growing up. Clockwise by Elle Strauss is an engaging read, light and actually a fun experience for all ages! Young Casey travels back into the nineteenth century, and really handles the situation well-especially when you realize she has no control over when she will ‘pop’ back or forward, but at least she returns to the exact moment she left! (Whew, I can [...]

    12. Find this review on: beingabooknerd.wordpress/Clockwise was a fun and light read with a fairytale ending. It was sort of like a short summer read, the ones that makes you kind of happy and light hearted. Strauss’s take on time travel was interesting- you go back in time but travel back to the same moment.(By the way,I love the cover)The story flowed smoothly. I loved how Strauss explored each character, rather than focusing just on time travel. It was nice to know that Casey had other things/ [...]

    13. If I could describe this book in one word, it would be cute. The main lead was cute, the side characters were cute, and the love interest was cute. Everything about this novel made me smile, and it made for a nice easy read.**Brief rant: one thing that kinda bothered me was the way Casey was obsessed with Nate. Or actually just boys in general. I mean these girls (meaning Casey and her friend Lucinda) spent their time watching the football players, and whatnot just to oogle cute boys. I know it [...]

    14. It's available on for free guysamazon/gp/product/B00So what can I say about this book? It was cute. Like really cute but just not my style you know. There were some really nice reviews about it so I thought of just reading it and I did find it cute. But nothing more than that. But one thing is for sure. I really did not like Nate. He seemed too arrogant. He was just plain annoying. I mean I felt as if he did not like Casey at all. Other than that, yeah the book was cute.I guess I have no other [...]

    15. "The life of a time traveler is nothing but strange."A very cute story about a young girl who time travels. But, she can't pick the whend, if she's touching anyone else, she can't pick to go alone.That's exactly what happens when her crush Nate touches her - they travel. Now she's stuck trying to explain to Nate what's going on as well as hide them and try to blend into the time that's not their own. It was a very cute read and I did enjoy it. I loved the picnic and one of the near final scenes. [...]

    16. I'll be honest, I almost didn't read this book because of its cover. It seemed uninteresting and I only got it because the ebook was free on at the time. I am sooooo glad I read it though. This was such a great book. I'm not much of a history buff or one that finds history to be very interesting at all, but this book changed my view on that.I would love to see this made into a movie but then again the film makers would probably leave so much out it wouldn't be as good.

    17. This book was okay. Not terrific, but not terrible either—there were things I did and didn't like about the plot.One thing I liked was how Casey goes back to the same moment in time every time and it's not just some random thing. However, speaking of randomness, why the heck is there no backstory? There's literally no explanation as to why Casey has her power. She does meet at least two or three other people with the same power, supposedly, but that doesn't happen until about 3/4s of the way t [...]

    18. You know I rate books based on how much I enjoy them. I'm rating this one 5 stars because it's YA and such an enjoyable book for its target audience! What I love about the Strauss novels I’ve read so far is that they’re still fully for a YA audience so it's a good fit for someone looking for clean & sweet plots! (Yes, I’m 34 and still enjoy it)The plot is actually pretty good: Casey’s a time traveler who cannot control her strolls into the 1860s. She needs to deal with the issues tha [...]

    19. I really enjoyed this book! It was a fun read that was easy to get through and kept me wondering. There are plenty of twists to keep you into the story and made you continuously wonder what was going to happen next. I definitely see myself reading more of this stories when I need a light hearted easy read.

    20. I gotta say I had no idea what this book was going to be like. You know about time travel novels. Sometimes they can be very complex. And honestly, after the things I've been reading lately, I was in a mellow reading mode. I was not disappointed! This is not a confusing time travel novel. Casey travels back to the same place every time she travels back. She's got it down to a science. She even has a stash of clothes and a few other items that make life easier for her, or so she thinks. There isn [...]

    21. Casey Donovan is an awkward teenage girl and for her, high school is Hell. In that respect she's very normal. The one little thing that sets her apart is her pesky time-travelling problem! She never asked to be transported to the past every time her life gets stressful. But after six years of it happening, Casey is used to it. Then the unthinkable happens and Nate, her crush and the most popular boy in school, is transported back with her! The year is 1860 and the country is on the brink of a Ci [...]

    22. I came to this story with two things: a love of time travel and a general leeriness for YA that focuses on high school drama.Strauss does a good job at writing a teen time travel story that succeeds in avoiding most stereotypical high school drama, and for that, I liked the book. But beyond that, I really enjoyed her twist on the notion of time travel. She’s got a refreshing new take on it, which really enriched my experience of the story. When Casey travels back in time, her “trips” are a [...]

    23. I was in the mood for a quick, fun read, and this book gave me just that - something quick and fun. I found myself enjoying this book, but disappointedly, not as much as I was hoping.Did I think this book was cheesy and cliche? Yes, but I'm a sucker for romantic comedies, and that's not why I was disappointed. It's kind of hard to explain, but I didn't really connect with the characters as much as I waned to. I found Casey to be a bit grating on my nerves, but she does grow on me a bit later. An [...]

    24. CLICK HERE TO READ MORE REVIEWS AT READING, EATING AND DREAMING I WAS BLAIR WALDORFLet’s get real. When I picked up Clockwise I thought it would cute, but I worried it would be a little too young for my taste. However, I was excited to read it because it was different from all of the books I have read recently. This book turned out to be better than I imagined, and surprisingly, it wasn’t too juvenile. The biggest reason it didn’t feel too young was because of the main character, Casey. Sh [...]

    25. One of the books that really fascinate me is Clockwise. Written by Elle Strauss this book is perfect for anybody who likes action, adventure, and romance. It takes place in Cambridge, Massachusetts 2012, but it also takes place in the 19th century. Casey Donovan is a girl with a not so normal life. She has a list of flaws about her. They are: crazy hair the color of burnt toast, a crush on Nate Mackenzie (the captain of every sports team in the school), extreme height, and one more thing: the ab [...]

    26. *Thank you to NetGalley for a free copy of this book in exchange for a fair review. 4.5 starsBrief Summery: Casey is a time traveler. She travels again and again to the year 1860, never knowing how long she'll be stuck in the past or the troubles she might encounter while there. When she returns to her present time, though, it's always as though no time as transpired at all. When she accidentally takes Nate, the boy she has a crush on, to the past with her, Casey suddenly has a whole other set o [...]

    27. This was a fun story. I loved reading a book about a modern girl who has to deal with constant time travel to the 1800s! Books about time travel intrigue me and this one eventually drew me in. I say eventually, because I really would only rate the first half 2 stars. I found both of the main characters to be shallow and unlikeable. All Casey seemed to care about was how she looked or how her love interest looked. Worse yet, she was whiny. Her love interest was a real jerk in the beginning and he [...]
