In My Mailbox - 17

Inspired by a steampunk post by adventures of cecelia bedelia, I picked up some steampunk to explore. This exciting book acquisition was found at a newly discovered fantasy, sci-fi and horror bookstore, Borderlands Books.

Steampunk is Victorian elegance and modern technology: steam-driven robots, souped-up stagecoaches, and space-faring dirigibles fueled by gaslight romance, mad scientists, and very trim waistcoats.

Black Projects, White Knights

I also managed to score a bunch of Julia London romances in a free giveaway box from Dog Eared bookstore.

  1. That cover for the Women of Nell Gwynn's is AWESOME

  2. Looks like some great ones! Can't wait to view your thoughts!

  3. Oh yeah, did you receive my pirate bag o'goodies?

  4. NICE on the steampunk. I'm going to get these from the library (just as soon as I can get another couple read and not go over the checkout limit!). I think I'll go ahead with the steampunk challenge idea, but it may take a while to organize...I have lots going on, and so many books already on my slate... :) Enjoy those reads! (romances are ALWAYS good, especially free ones)

  5. Ditto Misty! That one really grabbed my attention. I'm reading Genesis soon, too. Can't wait to read what you think of it.

  6. Hello,

    I'm with Quirk Books. I came across your blog and saw your mention of Pride and Prejudice and Zombies. I'm glad you enjoyed it! I was wondering if you would like to be put on a mailing list to receive future news about the Quirk Classic series. In just a few weeks, we'll be announcing the next title.
    If not, that's okay. We won't bug you again.

    If you have any questions feel free to contact the publicity manager, Melissa Monachello,

    Thank you for reading!

  8. Enjoy your books! They look great.

  9. I had to lok up what steampunk was the first time I saw it! I;m reading Leviathan at the moment and it's fantastic - my first ever steampunk!
