  1. I think you'll like Leviathan, but I have to warn you: when I started reading it, I put it down at first. It seemed younger than I had imagined. But once my mind adjusted and I went back to it, I loved it, especially the Deryn storylines. The genetics were more fascinating to me than the steam!

  2. Nice set of new reads :) I saw Leviathan at our library and thought it looked really good!
    Well, aside from a wonderful new ZOMBIE book courtesy of YOU - hehe - my only other new book this week was a copy of The Pretties that I found for a quarter at a rummage sale :D

    Happy Reading Velvet ~

  4. Leviathan has been sitting on my shelf since last year! ::groan:: I love the packaging of the book though. Maybe I should move it up on my TBR list :) Happy reading!
