The Friday 56 (With Book Beginnings): Changeless (Parasol Protectorate #2) by Gail Carriger + 50/50 Friday
On Friday's I take part in three weekly link ups - The Friday 56, hosted by Freda's Voice, Book Beginnings, hosted by Rose City Reader, and 50/50 Friday is a new weekly link up and it is hosted by Carrie @ The Butterfly Reader and Laura @ Blue Eye Books. For The Friday 56, you choose a book, a book you have just finished, a book you are about to start, your current read, and share a line or a few lines that grab you (but don't spoil anything) from page 56 or 56% of the way through the ebook. Post it and share your post's url on Freda's most recent Friday 56 post. As for Book Beginnings, you share the first sentence or so and your initial thoughts, impressions, or whatever else it inspires, and then link up your post's url with Rose City Reader. Then, for 50/50 Friday, every week there's a new topic featuring two sides of the same coin - you share a book that suits each category and link up on the hosts blogs.
This week I'm spotlighting one of my current #BeatTheBacklist reads, Changeless (Parasol Protectorate #2) by Gail Carriger. I've only read two novels by this author, Soullles and Etiquette & Espionage, but I love her style and I'm particularly looking forward to continuing Alexia's story. I don't know about you, but I think this series would make a cool crossover with The Infernal Devices by Cassandra Clare - I think Lord Akeldama and Magnus Bane would make a great team.
"They are what?"
Lord Connall Maccon, Earl of Woolsey, was yelling. Loudly. This was to be expected from Lord Maccon, who was generally a loud sort of gentleman - the ear-bleeding combination of lung capacity and a large barrel chest.
Alexia Maccon, Lady Woolsey, muhjah to the queen, Britain's secret preternatural weapon extraordinaire, blinked awake from a deep and delicious sleep.
"You left me with an entire regiment encamping on my front lawn," she finally remembered to accuse.
50/50 Friday: Favorite/Least Favorite Intended Audience Genre
Least favorite - NA - The New Adult titles I've read tend to focus more on romance than I care for.
Favorite - YA - If you've spent any time around this blog, you can probably tell I have a soft spot for Young Adult.
