Steampunk Challenge 2013

A while ago I decided to sign up for the Debut Author Challenge 2013 over at Hobbitsies. I really like the idea of challenging myself to read a certain category of books, especially since we're talking about debut authors. Lots of new talent to discover! 
This got me thinking though. I've always wanted to read some steampunk novels, but I've never gotten around to it. And what better way to make me read some steampunk books than challenging myself?
That's how my "Steampunk Challenge 2013" idea was born!

I've already made a list of books I want to read for this challenge. This list may grow over time, depending on how much time I have to read all these books.
So without further ado, here's the list:

The Lazarus Machine by Paul Crilley

Boneshaker by Cherie Priest

Clementine by Cherie Priest

Dreadnought by Cherie Priest

Ganymede by Cherie Priest

The Inexplicables by Cherie Priest

Phoenix Rising by Phillipa Ballantine

Leviathan by Scott Westerfeld

Shadow of the Apt series by Adrian Tchaikovsky
(8 books)

Soulless by Gail Carriger


  1. You must add Devon Monk's Age of Steam series. I'm reading Gail's YA debut as part of that challenge this year.
    Telling my major Steampunk fan friend about your challenge. She's read all of Cherie Priest's books. She's reading the Kady Cross series now.
    Good luck with your challenges this year. I'm hoping to read much much more this year.

    1. Added it! Thanks for the tip!
      I was reading your 2013 DAC post and I thought the name Gail Carriger sounded familiar! I think I'll read his YA debut too, for both the challenges.
      Good luck to you too Shelley, and hopefully a year filled with awesome books ;-)

  2. Lovley collection. I have only read one steampunk book aka The Girl in the Steel Corset...

    Good luck...
