HE INHERITED A WATCHMAKER'S STORE - AND A WHOLE HEAP OF TROUBLE. But idle sometime-musician George has little talent for clockwork. And when a shadowy figure tries to steal an old device from the premises, George finds himself embroiled in a mystery of time travel, music and sexual intrigue. A genuine lost classic, a steampunk original whose time has come.
Steampunkery delight!  Look at that cover!  It came out yesterday & I just found out about it.  Lucky timing for me :)

Divergent ---> Zakiya LadyWing's Pick

        Subject:  Dystopian, Fantasy, Science Fiction
            Binding:  Hardcover
                Genre:  Young Adult
                    Pages:  496


In Beatrice Prior's dystopian Chicago, society is divided into five factions, each dedicated to the cultivation of a particular virtue—Candor (the honest), Abnegation (the selfless), Dauntless (the brave), Amity (the peaceful), and Erudite (the intelligent). On an appointed day of every year, all sixteen-year-olds must select the faction to which they will devote the rest of their lives. For Beatrice, the decision is between staying with her family and being who she really is—she can't have both. So she makes a choice that surprises everyone, including herself.

During the highly competitive initiation that follows, Beatrice renames herself Tris and struggles to determine who her friends really are—and where, exactly, a romance with a sometimes fascinating, sometimes infuriating boy fits into the life she's chosen. But Tris also has a secret, one she's kept hidden from everyone because she's been warned it can mean death. And as she discovers a growing conflict that threatens to unravel her seemingly perfect society, she also learns that her secret might help her save those she loves . . . or it might destroy her.
 This book has had my attention for weeks and weeks. I'm anxioius to get out there and buy it! Next thing I need to get: money to pay for it. LOL!

Happy Steampunkery Reading to you All!

I'm eager to see what Beautiful Beings is about. It has such a pretty cover. All three books do.

Infernal Devices looks good...Beautiful beings...probably not.
Enjoy these books when they come out!

I love the cover of Beautiful Beings, but I'm so not into the angels books as of late. They just haven't been good. The only one I really did enjoy was Angelfire. But, I'll give it to the designer of that cover, it's a beauty.
