Historical Fiction
The Agency by Y.S. Lee
YA mystery series, The Agency, is set in a vivid- and gritty- Victorian England.

Steampunk/ Alt. History
Leviathan Series by Scott Westerfeld
The Leviathan trilogy is a wonderful dual PoV steampunk alternative history.

Wow. I apparently get irrelevant if I have to be succinct. Well, this is not the first time I have said that there is a very good reason that I am not in marketing, nor, I'm sure, will it be the last.


  1. Hehe I like the colored font part on Legend. I love when they do different things with the fonts.

  2. Legend has coloured font!?! Mine doesn't! This makes me sad, haha! I haven't heard of The Agency before but I love the sound of that one. I have debated reading Leviathan quite a few times but I still can't decide whether it's for me or not. You can find my answers here.

    1. It does. Mine is a North American edition. Day's text is always coloured, and the font is different from June's. It's kind of a gold in the first book, blue in the second and red in the third. Do you at least get the lovely covers? The rose on Champion was one of my favourite covers of 2013.

      The Agency doesn't really get much buzz... I'm not sure if it's because the author is Canadian, or if it's a niche genre, or what (maybe I just have weird taste...), but I really enjoyed them. They're a lot of fun.

      If you do give the Leviathan trilogy a try, I will warn you that multiple people have told be it is hard to get into. It has illustrations, if that sells you on it at all, and it gets stronger as the series goes on.
