Series: Gone with the Respiration #1 I wasn’t expecting much from this book, and although there were a few interesting bits, it mostly didn’t deliver much of anything other than a fine squick factor. I think I didn’t remember what the description actually said when I decided to read it. I consider...

Cross-posted on Soapboxing "She would of been a good woman," The Misfit said, "if it had been somebody there to shoot her every minute of her life." Now, I admit my upbringing was in some ways unorthodox (and in other ways completely not), but this was a favorite aphorism of my mother's. It c...

Closer to 3.5. As many other reviewers have stated, there are WAY too many POVs. I also thought the ending was confusing. But the worldbuilding (including why these people in the future have adopted Victorian ways of life, which no one in steampunk novels seems to think about) and interesting concep...

My kids will say that I speak zombie blasphemy but it must be said: I liked Dearly, Departed more than my favorite tv show The Walking Dead! There, I said it, whew. I loved this book. What's not to love really? There's zombies, steampunk, victorian, it's futuristic, romantic ect, ect. I swear I high...

Liked the romance (actually, LOVED it!) and the characters are the best! The worldbuilding is pretty epic too, but it was a bit slow and confusing. I ended up skimming a few pages. Sigh.

Dearly Departed.hmmm. I couldnt even finish this book. I read 3 chapters and just couldnt go any further. 1. This book is WAY out of my norm. I dont like scifi. I dont even watch Scifi movies. But I had liked twilight so I figured maybe I would try another scifi and this one was recommended.2. I don...

A punky one of a kind cocktail of zombies, steampunk, and Victorian propriety. The story itself bounces in a state of chaos between the living and undead, teen drama and grownup gunfights, historical and futuristic, and utopia and dystopia. You'll love the good zombies with their metal plated faces,...

I had one huge issue with the book. The book is written in first person AND there are shifting narrators (5 of them, if I recall correctly) throughout the book. Shifting narrators don't bother me when they are in the third person, but the first person writing made it a bit jarring to switch from cha...

So, second zombie book ever. Loved it.I thought the story was great. I liked the multiple POV's, I love that in a book. I liked seeing how Bram felt or thought, not just Nora. The take on Zombie's was awesome, I liked the science behind it. I also loved that they weren't all evil. The romance betwee...
