Snark with a Side of Cheeky

Books #30-36

30) Changeless by Gail Carriger (Steampunk Fantasy, 374 pages)
Alexia is back in the follow up to the delightful Soulless. Now Lady Maccon and mujah, she finds she has a whole new set of problems to deal with - starting with the regiment camping out on her front lawn and a mysterious humanizing effect that turns supernaturals human. And then there's her wayward husband, her tag-along sister, and Ivy's hats to deal with. But she does get a lovely new parasol and a dirigible ride out of the bargain. Too bad it seems someone is out to get her... More corsets, dirigibles, werewolves, and steampunk goodness than you can shake a parasol at. Eagerly awaiting the next book! 4/5

31) 1984 by George Orwell (Dystopian Fiction, 328 pages)
This was okay. A pretty fast read until Orwell started having pages and pages of political griping and teeth gnashing. A good read but I will admit I started skimming towards the end. 3.5/5

32) Enchanted, Inc. by Shanna Swendson (Chick-Lit Fantasy, 320 pages)
This book was so much fun! It was pure escapism fluff and I loved every word of it. 4/5

33) Schooled by Gordon Korman (Young Adult, 224 pages)
A very quick, enjoyable read. Cap is a commune kid for whom modern life is completely foreign. After his grandmother's accident, he ends up enrolled at a public school... and elected class president. I really liked this one, though felt the ending was just a little too abrupt. 3.5/5

34) Once Upon Stilettos by Shanna Swendson
35) Damsel Under Stress by Shanna Swendson
36) Don't Hex With Texas by Shanna Swendson
The follow-up books to Enchanted, Inc., which I tore through one after the other. I really enjoyed this series. Not since Jennifer Estep's Bigtime superhero romance books have I torn through a set of books so quickly, and with so much enjoyment. It was nice to see Kate's progression as a character. 4/5
