If you had to suggest a starter Steampunk novel for someone,
what would it be?
I just have to say you all came through with
a bunch of excellent sounding options!!!
And still it was so hard to choose!
I had narrowed it down to the top 3 vote getters:
And it was an incredibly hard choice!
First off, Missie sent me to her MBB post about the Iron Duke…
*fans self* Oh my!
Then I had to factor in that it was my
admiration for Scott Westerfeld,
Cutie and Cutie’s love for Scott Westerfeld
that got me started down this road
(plus the illustrations in this book are AWESOME!)….
But then Soulless did get the most votes….
Finally I decided to pick the one
I would be least likely to pick up on my own
but also had the best reviews by people I know….
And that one is…..
So while I am a bit nervous about Steampunk, Vamps and Werewolves…
Bring it on!!!
And I’m so excited that
has volunteered to hold my hand
and read this one with me!!
Thank you so much, girl!!!!!
And I know you read faster than I do
but I promise I’ll get my butt in gear!
Thank you again, to everyone
who took the time to leave a recommendation!
I truly appreciate your input
and I hope you’ll come back
to see what Darkfallen and I thought of Soulless!

YES! Soulless rock!!
Great choice. I loved reading "Soulles" and hope you will also enjoy it.
I've seen reviews for "Leviathan" posted all over this here interweb, and they all have great things to say. So what did I do? I bought it. And what was the deciding factor? The posts by folks on Pushy's original question. So thanks all!
My recent post Review- The Gods of Dream by Daniel Arenson
Just requested my copy form the library. Should have it in a few days. I'm SOOOOOOO excited, this is going to be fun. Not to mention little nervous. Ive never read a book "blind" before, but I am very proud of myself that I haven't gave in and read any reviews or synopsis yet.
(yes i know i'm a big dork;))
YAY!! It's a fun book. Can't wait to hear what you all think of it!
You are wonderment! The end. =)
Leviathan is awesome. Westerfeld is a fantastic writer. I'm excited to hear what you think of it.
Annnd I need more coffee in me to sound less like a robot when I comment! *hangs head*
Wonderment huh! lolz 😉
Oh geez. I've been convinced as well.Missy's MBB post is just too good. Yum. Added to my TBR!
My recent post Book Review- Matched by Ally Condie
My 14 yr old is loving Leviathan! It may take the rest of the year for him to finish it as he's a slow reader, but he gushes about it!!
Pushy and Darkfallen – you will enjoy Soulless. It is a fun book to read. Lots of humor.
If you're reading Leviathan, check out Scott Westerfeld's website. He has a trailer for the book which kind of explains what it is. The trailer is animated and kind of neat. As a young adult book, Leviathan is not an easy read, but it is original and entertaining. The artwork is beautiful as well.
Heather and AH, I'm definitely planning to read Leviathan. And I agree, the illustrations are awesome. I'm looking forward to starting Soulless. 🙂
