What if You Could Rewind Time? by Keira Lea

What would you do if you could rewind time? Would you take advantage of a second chance? I thought about this question a lot while writing Replay. A few things came to mind.

First, I would rewind to my freshman year of college. When I was in high school, everyone expected you to go to college, but no one told you what to do when you got there. I ended up on the five-year bachelor's degree plan because I was clueless the first year. Some would argue I was just drunk … on the excitement of being on my own. While we're talking about college, I would go back to that moment I ran my car into my dad's truck as I left to move into the dorm.

I would also rewind to my high school prom, when I tripped on a step and sprained not one but two ankles. I'd go back to the day I decided to walk across an icy sidewalk at school. I'm sure you know how that ended. The next decision I would undo is turning on an unprotected left two months after earning my driver's license. That time, my father's car and my pride sustained a bit more damage.

Let's go back further to the weekend I rode a jetski at the lake for three hours with no sunscreen on my porcelain skin. Or the afternoon at Six Flags I went straight from a lunch of pizza and Dr Pepper to a ride that goes upsidedown. Twice. Oh, and speaking of that visit to Six Flags during a Texas summer? I wore a black T-shirt, a long black skirt, and boots. Sunscreen was a moot point, but heatstroke was not.

What if you could rewind time? Tell me what you would change.

  2. Just stopping by to say hi! Thanks for having me! This blog is going to break my book budget. *sigh*

  3. No ebook for me, but did want to say what a wonderful concept!
    So much I'd love to rewind *sigh*. My favorite hour is 12am - 1a.m. as I think the still of the night is so peaceful and perfect for star gazing.

  4. My favorite hour is 6 pm because that's the time I read and it's really relaxing for me.

  5. Hmmmmm.... my favorite time I think is 10:30pm :)

  6. My favorite time is 8:30 at night because that's what time my son goes to bed and I get the rest of the night to myself to read!! Yay!

  7. My favourite time of the day is 15:00 because that's the time I get home from the mad rush of a day at campus and get to flop on to my bed and fall off to sleep. I love the concept of being able to rewind time and do things over. Thanks for the giveaway:)

  8. I'm like Julie-- whenever the kids are in bed at night. So, about 8:05pm!

  9. I'm a night owl, but my favorite time of day is 6am on those rare occasions when I am wide awake and everyone else is still asleep. It's great because I know where everyone important to me is, but at the same time they are all quiet and I can sneak into the living room and enjoy some nice me time!

  10. My favorite time is about 11:00 p.m. If I am luck my work is done and I can slow down and if not I can usually get a second wind to keep on plugging. Thank you for the wonderful giveaway opportunity of this really interesting book.


  11. My favorite time is 6 AM because I love to wake up early and watch the sunrise.
