WWW Wednesday and Wishlist Wednesday! #6

The Girl in The Clockwork Collar
Steampunk Chronicles #2

In New York City, 1897, life has never been more thrilling - or dangerous. 

Sixteen-year-old Finley Jayne and her "straynge band of mysfits" have journeyed from London to America to rescue their friend Jasper, hauled off by bounty hunters. But Jasper is in the clutches of a devious former friend demanding a trade-the dangerous device Jasper stole from him...for the life of the girl Jasper loves. 

One false move from Jasper and the strange clockwork collar around Mei's neck tightens. And tightens.

I'm about to finish The Girl In The Steel Corset and I have to say that I'm really loving it! I find it quite similar for some aspects to The Infernal Devices trilogy by Cassandra Clare and I'm really curious about the sequel! I think I've never read steampunks before (unless you can consider Clockwork Prince a steampunk novel) and I think this is a genre I will really enjoy in the future.. maybe I should check more books like this one :)

Have you read the Girl In The Steel Corset? What did you think of it?

To play along, just answer the following three (3) questions…

• What are you currently reading?

• What did you recently finish reading?
• What do you think you’ll read next?

What are you currently reading?

I'm currently reading the Exemeus by Folami and Abeni Morris, as 
part of the blog tour. My stop will be on the 25th January, don't forget to take a look at my review!!

What did you recently finish reading?

I'm going to finish the last two chapter of the Girl In The Steel Corset by Kady Cross tonight. I will be posting my review on Friday, peeps!

What do you think you’ll read next? 

My next random read is Transfer Student by Laura A.H Elliot; I had this one on my e-reader for such a long time but never had the chance to start it. I won this one in a giveaway and received my copy for review. Isn't the cover absolutely gorgeous?

  1. To be honest, I really didn't enjoy STEEL CORSET. However, I adored Jack Dandy, so I may have to check out the sequel just for him. :)

    Thanks for stopping by my blog!

    1. Jack Dandy was awesome!
      I have mixed feelings for this book

  2. I have not started The Steampunk Chronicles, but it says a lot that you just finished the first and are wishing for the second. I really have to give the series a go. Thanks for stopping by my WW.

    1. Yes, you should! It's not as good as I thought it would but it's definitely a good one! ^^

  6. Kady Cross's series sounds really good. I've never read any steampunk before so maybe I should start reading some this year.

    I recently nominated you for the One Lovely Blog Award. It's okay if you don't want to do a post on it or antyhing.
