Lisa 2022 Reading Change

Hi Guys! Today I am sharing my Reading Challenge that I set up for myself. I am exploring a New theme each month.

January theme : Steampunk

Steampunk is a subgenre of science fiction that incorporates retrofuturistic technology and aesthetics inspired by 19th-century industrial steam-powered machinery. … Such technologies may include fictional machines like those found in the works of H. G. Wells and Jules Verne.

To save the Hatter, Alice must work with the one man she despises so much that she might still love him.

Alice thought she’d turned over a new leaf. No more working for Jabberwocky. No more making deals with the ruthless Queen of Hearts. No more hanging around The Mushroom with tinkers, tarts, scoundrels, and thieves in London’s criminal underbelly. But she’d been bonkers to dream.

Hatter’s reckless behavior leads Alice back to the one person she never wanted to see again, Caterpillar. Pulled into Caterpillar’s mad schemes, Alice must steal a very big diamond from a very royal lady. The heist is no problem for this Bandersnatch. But protecting her heart from the man she once loved? Impossible.

Sometimes love is mad.

Curiouser and Curiouser is a retelling of Lewis Carroll’s classic Alice in Wonderland fairy tale set in New York Times best-selling author Melanie Karsak’s steampunk universe. Journey to gaslamp London during the 19th century to see how Melanie puts a steampunk spin on this reimagined fairytale.

Book Review:

I really enjoyed this version of the Alice in Wonderland fairytale, with Alice escaping her life of crime just to be brought back in. All the characters from the original story were involved in the story in some way or another, but as humans. And there were tons of fun references to all the other Wonderland elements which made it fun to find the subtle clues. The world was fun with all kinds of steampunk gadgets, transportations and even a mechanical grinning cat- as well as some terrifying human alterations as well.

Feel Free to join me each month that I explore New themes’ in Books…. Lisa
