Spotlight on Steampunk: Wrap-up Post

steampunkspotlightFINAL

Spotlight on Steampunk was originally a readathon I decided to run just because I wanted to get some Steampunk books read. But, I decided to turn it into a bloggy event, to make it more exciting! I was lucky enough to read a lot of brilliant Steampunk fiction, as well as lucky enough to host two amazing fantasy authors on my blog for the event. I found it fun to run, and so I hope everybody enjoyed reading the posts!

I got some really nice feedback from lots of people, about the event, my reviews and that tiny little drawing I included on post one. A huge thank you to everybody who left such nice comments- you’re all super awesome! *virtual cake* (:

As of Monday, I’ll be catching up on some Advanced Reading Copy reviews that need to go up. So, here is a wrap-up post of all of the themed blog posts that have been published since the 1st of December!

Spotlight on Steampunk: Reviews

I got to read and review steampunk books over the themed fortnight. You can see what books I read here. Click on the book jackets to bring yourself to my review of that title.

An Anthology of Fantastically Rich and Strange StoriesThe Whatnot (The Peculiar, #2)Soulless: The Manga, Vol. 1 (The Parasol Protectorate Manga)

Of course, I still have a lot of Steampunk books to read. All of them, I’m really excited about! You can view my Steampunk TBR shelf, showcased in yesterday’s post, here.

Spotlight on Steampunk: Author Spotlights

So that the bloggy event wasn’t just reviews, I asked two authors if they’d be interested in an interview or a guest post. Both authors were really really lovely and said yes! You can click on their author profile pictures below to see their posts for Spotlight on Steampunk. Nigel McDowell (bottom) wrote Tall Tales From Pitch End, and he answered some  interview questions on his writing. Stefan Bachmann (top) wrote The Peculiar & The Whatnot, and did a guest post on steampunk-y inspirations on his books!

So that’s Spotlight on steampunk over! ;D I enjoyed reading just one certain genre over two weeks, though now I have a lot of ARCs to catch up on! I’ve just finished reading A Boy Called Hope by Lara Williamson, a contemporary, but then I’m back to fantasy with some future Hot Key titles and a Strange Chem one! (: Again, huge thank yous and slices of virtual cake to anyone who commented on the blog posts!

Special thanks to: Nina from Death Books and Tea, who gave me the copy of Etiquette and Espionage and lent me the copy of the Soulless manga, Nigel McDowell for his brilliant interview answers, and Stefan Bachmann for his awesome guest post. Thank you!! 😀
