Not a lot to say besides I really liked this book. I thought it mixed together the elements of steampunk and the Victorian Age very well. I loved the characters, and I loved how Cross added in Gothic elements as well by using inspiration from some stories we all know and love (Frankenstein--well I h...

This book read like a tv show. To be honest, a huge part of The Girl in the Steel Corset reminded me a lot of tv shows like Vampire Diaries and Pretty Little Liars—you know, teenagers running the whole show and doing ten thousand things without any adults and saving the day? Yeah. The book starts ou...

My Thoughts:4 stars I'm really glad i re-read this book, but i have to admit this time around i didnt get as caught up in the story and noticed some things i didnt like as much, such as some personality traits. Griffin and Sam got on my nerves quite a bit, i preferred Finley where she had a moor bip...

There are often books that play on stereotypes. Some of them do so cleverly, exaggerating the stereotype into comedy or twisting it into a subtler or subverted rendition. I was really hoping that this book would be something like that when I picked it up. Unfortunately, it was exactly as the author ...

This is the first book in the series. It kind of has the Harry Potter feel in the since that it continues the story through to the next book.. It leaves you hanging until you get to the next one. I am more of a romance reader and like my stories to end at the end of the book. With that said I am st...

Not the most derivative of steampunk. Quite enjoyed the world building, and the characters. Author relied a little too heavily on love triangles to build tension and I had very little interest in the Sam/Emily subplot (Why do they like each other???) and little patience for Sam in general, but it ke...

My paperback copy of this book contained the prequel, The Strange Case of Finley Jayne, as well as The Girl in the Steel Corset 2 stars for The Strange Case... and 3 stars for The Girl in... I wasn't sure what to expect with this. It isn't my usual sort of read, though I have read quite a few st...

I enjoyed it and I'll read the rest of the series (provided they don't turn into absolute crap) because I thought it was pretty fun, regardless of silly plot points and some annoying character quirks.Some of those silly plot points were painfully predictable [spoiler] Leonardo? Garibali being the ...

This had a good premise, but ultimately I was underwhelmed. The world-building was interesting, but there was too much of it, like it was trying too hard. Some of the cultural stuff was especially frustrating, inconsistent and again, trying too hard.Throw in some insta-love and not one, but TWO love...

I just could not get into this book. I tried. I got a little ways, but it was so much exposition. Two lines of dialogue and then four pages of backstory. It was rough and I just wasn't interested in the little plot that I was aware of to continue on. Too bad, because I like steampunk. Maybe it would...
