Beakish Discussions (#1)


So I made a startling discovery recently, penguins.

If you’ve been around my blog a while, you’ll know I SWEAR one of my favorite genres evaaaaaaaaar is, wait for it, wait for ittttttttt…

But…I love steampunk so SO much, I don’t allow myself to read it often.  And I’m not sure, now, if this is because I don’t want to risk “ruining” my adoration of it by devouring ALL THE THINGS, or if I’m scared that by branching out and reading more of it, I will begin to find books that disappoint me rather than make me swoon.

So tell me, penguins–is there a genre you absolutely LOVE…that you don’t allow yourself to read often?  What is your reasoning for doing this?  Do you appreciate the genre more by reading less of it, or are you afraid you’ll end up disappointed in it?


Also, if you were curious, some of my FAVORITE steampunk novels include:

Chronicles of Steele: Raven: The Complete Story

Clockwork Princess (The Infernal Devices, #3)

Vinyl (Vinyl #1)

Until next time, happy book-ing!

    • Oh, Icky…YOU MUST MUST MUUUUST go check it out on Goodreads! It was one of my favorite reads of 2016 and I am ALL ABOUT more people picking it up, because it’s SO GOOD! Here’s the synopsis for you:

      “All citizens within the soaring black walls of Revinia have metal Singers grafted into their skulls at birth. The parasitic machines issue a form of auditory hypnosis called The Music, which keeps their minds malleable and emotions flat. All artistic expression—especially real music—is strictly prohibited.

      On the edge of the city, nineteen year old Ronja struggles to support her cousins and disabled mother. A chance meeting leads to her kidnapping by an underground resistance striving to preserve the human spirit. Violently severed from her Singer by the brash young agent Roark, Ronja revels in her newfound freedom until the consequences of her disappearance begin to unfold.”
