The Steampunk challenge:
I have tried to read Boneshaker by Cherie Priest, but I haven't finished it. I started Viridis, but I haven't finished that one either.
The Urban Fantasy challenge:
I have read Shaded Vision by Yasmine Galenorn, Summer Storm by Lizette Gifford and Raven Calls by C.E Murphy. I will probably post reviews of them, sometime this year.
Here is the thing: I have gradually come to the insight that I am burned out on Urban Fantasy and Paranormal Romance. I feel meh about books, even by authors I like. For example: I should be excited that the next Patricia Briggs novel is out soon, instead I'm not sure I'll buy it. I have no idea if I'll buy it. All right. I probably will, since it is Patricia Briggs after all.
So what am I doing to recover? I am reading other genres. I have a bunch of historical fiction that is unread, and also some Romantic Suspense. But most of all, I try to shake off the feeling that I have to review every book. That I can read a book just for fun.
But there is one review coming next week: Hunter's Prey by Moira Rogers. It will be the last one with a paranormal element for awhile. Unless I stumble upon a really good book that I want to spread the word about.
