2017-steampunkreading-challenge

We’re back and attempting to do the Steampunk Reading Challenge again! Katrina @ Bookish Things and More and I have made some improvements/changes making this challenge a little more lax than before. So, if you want to challenge yourself to read a little more Steampunk this year, sign up! There will be giveaways every quarter! 🙂

Challenge Guidelines

  1. This challenge will run from January 1st, 2017 to December 31st, 2017. Signups will be open until December 1st, 2017.
  2. Anyone can enter, as long as you are posting your reviews/book talks somewhere that you can link to them. Whether that is on your blog, Goodreads, Instagram, Amazon, etc.
  3. Rereads are allowed as long as you have a review/book talk to go along with that for the 2017 year.
  4. The link ups for each quarter will go live on the first day of each quarter. And they will be open until the next link up is live.
  5. Use #2017SRC on social media to show off your updates for the challenge and of course to make more friends!

What Books Count?

Any book that has Steampunk elements in it. The book can be in any other genre (Adult, New Adult, Young Adult, Middle Grade) and have other sub genres (paranormal, romance, etc) as long as it has Steampunk elements within it!

BEA 2016 Recap

Posted May 16, 2016 by Stephanie in BEA, Event / 5 Comments

bea-2016

So, if you saw the post from Wednesday about BEA and what I’d like to snag if it was there, I’m happy to tell you that I was able to grab 6/9 books I posted about. I did not see Bright Smoke, Cold Fire by Rosamund Hodge and both Heartless and 738 Days was there but I tried twice getting Heartless and got trampled. (IT WAS CRAZY!) But the others, I was able to get! Plus a ton more! So, I will post the pics that I took after Thursday and Friday (not the greatest pics, but if you keep a lookout on my Instagram, I should be posting better ones soon!) And since it may be difficult to see the titles of some, I will list the titles and authors underneath the picture. I’ll also post some pics of the people I saw and/or met! 🙂

BEA 3

The lovely Sooz did a panel at BEA on Friday and I just had to go and say hello and take another picture of my favorite person on this planet! 🙂 Seriously, she is the absolute best! <3
