Books, You Guys!

I read a lot of everything. Mostly fantasy and sci-fi, or speculative fiction or Slipstream or New Weird or whatever we're calling it now, some comics, some literary fiction, mysteries, la dee da. And...well. I do like a kissin' book.
Soulless - Gail Carriger, Gail Carriger I wasn't expecting a straight up romance novel, and this was a pretty predictable one. It's quite funny though, and the steampunk touches add atmosphere without distracting from the story. The characters are likable and well-drawn. Even the by-the-numbers romance is comforting in a way, and the mystery was interesting and even a little tense. After adjusting my expectations a bit I was able to enjoy it for what it was--a tasty little piece of brain candy!
