The blog Whole Latte Books is hosting a Steampunk Readathon starting tomorrow (September 10th), which is absolutely amazing!
The Readathon will take place online, using the hashtag #SteampunkReadathon. It begins Sept 10, 2016 at midnight and ends Sept 16, 2016 at 11:59 PM. You can sign up between now and anytime during the readathon here. Read as little or as many books as you want. Read just one and still participate! Books started before the readathon will not count. No cheating! Books must be from the steampunk genre or related genres including dieselpunk, biopunk, and so on. For a full list of related genres see here. Books may be fiction, nonfiction, graphic novels, art books, or children’s books.
Whole Latte Books has some great suggestions on their page. Of course, I would highly recommend my own steampunk novel, Grigory’s Gadget (wink wink, nudge nudge, say no more, say no more). If you’ve already read that, here are some of my favorites, as well as books on my own to-read shelf:
- The Parasol Protectorate series by Gail Carriger
- Howl’s Moving Castle by Diana Wynn Jones
- The Time Machine by H.G. Wells
- His Dark Materials series by Philip Pullman
- The Clockwork Century series by Cherie Priest
- The Yellow Hoods series by Adam Dreece
- The Great Abraham Lincoln Pocket Watch Conspiracy by Jacopo della Quercia
I personally will be reading Gail Carriger’s new novella, Poison or Protect. See you on Twitter!
