As some of you may have noticed there is a new challenge on my sidebar. I love challenges and I think I am going to be able to complete the ones that I entered this year, except for my library challenge. I had some trouble with that one due to the huge amount of review books I receive. But, I'm making strides to add books to my reading that I'm just reading because I want to, so next year darn it... I'm going to complete that one as well.
But, now as you can see, I've stumbled upon a new one, that I just can't seem to resist. I've been considering reading some Steampunk novels for awhile now, most notably, The Parasol Protectorate series. This challenge gives me that little nudge I need into a new sub-genre that I've been wanting to explore.
The challenge is being hosted by Rikki at The Bookkeeper. Click here to go to the sign up page. It's very lenient. You can pick the amount of books you want to read. They can be in whatever format you prefer, including audio books and anthologies. It's really all about exposing ourselves to something new or something you just really enjoy. I am totally going to need lots of recommendations on what to read and there is a page specifically for recommendations. Click here to go to the recommendations page.
I'd like to challenge you to consider something a little outside your comfort zone with this one. Join me in this challenge and I'm sure we'll have lots to talk about.
I'm going to try to read at least 5 Steampunk books over the next year. I know that's a pretty low number, but I'm not real sure about it yet. I may amp up the total later on, once I get into it. So let me know what you suggest I read and be sure to go over to The Bookkeeper and sign up for yourself.
I will also be adding the Steampunk Challenge to my book list for the year, so you can follow along or see which books I've read for the challenge. You'll be able to look at my list by clicking on the sidebar where it says "Book List" or by clicking here.
Wish me luck!
