NAC Mini-Challenge - Steampunk (February 2011)
I'm already taking part in the New Author Challenge hosted by Literary Escapism and as Steampunk is a genre I've been wanting to try for ages I'm signing up for the February Mini-Challenge. The fact that I need ideas for a Steampunk costume for AAD in August means this is perfect timing for a Steampunk challenge!
The challenge is to read up to 5 Steampunk novels (preferably by new to you authors). I'm not sure I'll have time to read 5 books but I'm going to try and read as many as I can. If you want to join me and take part in the challenge click here.
I definitely want to read Soulless by Gail Carriger (I bought the first 3 books in the Parasol Protectorate series a few months ago but still haven't started reading them yet!). I also have a copy of Magic Under Glass by Jaclyn Dolamore so I might give that one a try too.
After that I've run out of ideas so if you have any Steampunk recommendations please leave me a comment. I'm supposed to be on a book buying ban but I have a feeling I might have to order a couple of books for this challenge!
The books I read for this challenge will be listed below (links will take you to my reviews):
I'm still fairly new to Steampunk but I'm sure it's a genre I'll be reading a lot more of in the future!
