I grew up reading books like The Babysitter Club and The Boxcar Kids. Now I read Romance, Young Adult, New Adult, Paranormal, Urban Fantasy, Dystopian and any mixture of these all depending on what my mood is. I love Stephen King, Michael Connolly, JRR Tolkien, CS Lewis, Jane Austen, JK Rowling, Ilona Andrews, Patricia Briggs and many others.

The Girl in the Steel Corset

The Girl in the Steel Corset - Kady Cross This was my second steampunk novel and so far I'm not totally sure what I think of the genre. This, to me, was hard to read. It was very detailed oriented, I found myself skimming bits and pieces here and there to get to the story. I was expecting a fast pace novel for the plot of this book. While it wasn't at a crawl, it wasn't at a gallop either.

I liked the story, even though I had a hard time with all the details. The plot was really interesting to me. The idea of the 'Little Beasties' was interesting. I liked Finley, Griff, Jasper and even Jack Dandy. I'm hoping that the details were just a lot of world building, because I do plan on trying out the second novel.

I know I wasn't as impressed with this as others seemed to have been. But, despite everything, I did like it. I didn't hate it. I'm actually interested in what happens after the ending of this book. It has a great plot, hopefully I can focus better when the next one comes out.
