    2. Clockwork Dagger by Beth Cato

    This was my first steampunk read. I’ve read short stories and novel chapters, but this is the first full novel. It was a good introduction to the genre, a fun blend of fantasy and science fiction and I never felt overwhelmed by these aspects. The worldbuilding was weaved in so well to the action, making it a quick read. I especially like stories involving healers, so this one was right up my alley. Highly recommended.

    4. Death Masks by Jim Butcher

    Another gripping tale in the Harry Dresden series. It’s getting darker, and new hints are being thrown into the story about things that are important to Harry.

    6. Rosemary and Rue by Seanan McQuire (ebook)

    I’ve read some of Seanan’s short stories and heard her on the Squeecast, so I took a dip into her urban fantasy novel (October Daye series) and I’m liking it.

    7. Leviathan Wakes by James S. A. Corey (paper)

    A behemoth like this needed the physical touch of progressing through a book. I enjoyed it thoroughly, it just took forever to get through. (Forever being a week of not doing anything else writing related).

    Of all the Star Wars characters, Luke has always been my favorite. This book takes place shorty after A New Hope, and fills in some gaps on how things get to be the way they are in Empire Strikes Back. Luke is young and refreshing, naive and cute. Artoo features significant as well. One of my favorite things about Luke is his treatment of his droids – and that is shown well here too. Kevin Hearne did a fantastic job. I’ve never read his work before, but will be looking up his other works.

    10. Honor Among Thieves by James S. A. Corey (paper)

    This was a fun read. This book is from Han’s POV, with all the boyish charm and immaturity you’d expect, along with a few surprises.

    11. Cold Cold Hearts by Tami Hoag (audio)

    Another suspense novel from Tami Hoag. Very good story telling. I’m especially enjoying her female narrators. It gives the story another layer of immersion.

    This was a fast paced scifi thriller. It takes place in the future but life is similar enough that it blends well. Hopefully not spoiling, but if you ever thought about what it would mean to be in two places at once, this is your book.

    13. First Family by David Baldacci (audio)

    This was my first time reading Baldacci and I really liked the story. The narrator did a good job too. There was some background music in places on this one which I haven’t encountered before – but the narrator’s performance didn’t need it, it was just extra. I’ll be looking up this author again.
