Interesting haul this week. Darke London looks pretty awesome. I love the cover of The Girl with the Steel Corset! It's been on my TBR list for sooo long! Happy readings!

I'm glad you liked Bronze Gods! It was my best book of the week, pretty much. But I know what you mean about that paperback font. I'm tempted by Darke London, but I've resisted so far. I've really liked her contemporaries, but her steampunk, not so much. Can't wait to see your review.

I appreciate the links that you shared. Interesting stuff. Especially the article about blogger shutting down blogs. That happened to me! My blog went poof all over some TOS BS. I am going to check out the Vanps vs. Zombies event now.

I immediately got fascinated by Love Gone Mad - it looks fantastic, K.! And yeah, that post from Rachel about Google was scary. I didn't know anything about it until today, but my blog got deleted on Monday, and it was pure luck that I've restored it straight away. I don't even know why or how I managed to do it. At the time I thought it was just a glitch, and I had no emails from Google.
