Soulless Confession

Yesterday afternoon I was all set to post for Road Trip Wednesday, but I made a rookie mistake with the new Kindle:

I downloaded a sample of Soulless by Gail Carriger. Then I read the sample. Then I hit buy. Then I did nothing but read Soulless for the rest of the day and evening.

Laundry? Pfft!
Dinner? Boil some turkey hot dogs and open a can of beans, toss in direction of husband.
Finish the reading for Thursday's critique group? There's always Thursday morning . . .

I know I'm somewhat late to the game for this title (again!) I really don't know why it took me so long to read it, there are so many great elements: vampires! werewolves! steampunk goggles (man am I jonesing for these for myself)! bustles! unseemly wrestling on the settee! witty banter!

What more could you ask for? Exceptional writing, you say? That's there too! And yes, I enjoyed this book so much that it justifies all these exclamation marks cluttering up my post!

WOW! I guess I had better read this too with this kind of a recommendation.

Isn't it brilliant? I just discovered it too. I'd say I'm in love, but I'm sure Ms Carriger would say that's far too forward a declaration when we haven't been introduced ;)

I mowed through the next two books in a matter of days, also. I thought the 3rd was not quite as good (probably because Conall is out of the picture for most of it) but still, it's going to be torture waiting for the next one.
