Well, its been a LONG time since I’ve done a Waiting on Wednesday post, and my to-read list just keeps on getting longer! Looking at my list I was happy to discover that a number of the books coming out in 2013 have a Steampunk-esque theme! Without further ado, here are some of the Steampunk related novels that I can’t wait to get my hands on!
Etiquette and Espionage by Gail Carriger
This YA novel focuses on Sophronia, a young girl who would much rather dismantle clocks and climb trees than learn proper etiquette. Attempting to tame her wild daughter, Sophronia’s mother sends her to a finishing school for young ladies. Little does her mother know, but the school also teaches the finer arts of death, deceit, and espionage. How awesome is that?!
Soulless: The Manga Vol.3 by Gail Carriger
June 25th cannot come soon enough! I am obsessed with the manga adaptations of Carriger’s Parasol Protectorate series that have slowly been released over the past year. If you haven’t checked out any of the manga or Carriger’s original novels yet, then do it now!
Clockwork Princess by Cassandra Clare
The final instalment of the Infernal Devices series, Clockwork Princess will be a bittersweet read. I’ve loved this series since I first read Clockwork Angel, and I’ll be sad to see this Steampunk/Shadowhunter world come to an end. I’m still keeping my fingers crossed that Clare will change her mind and decide to write more about Will, Jem, and Tessa!
