Welcome to the 5th annual Clocks, Cogs, and Mechanisms Reading challenge. Huzzah! The location has changed over the years but the challenge has endured. When this challenge was first created, the world of steampunk was still fairly unknown, but not new. This is a genre that has been inspired by the works of H.G. Wells, Jules Verne, and H.P. Lovecraft to name a few. For those who have never experienced steampunk, a typical steampunk novel takes place in the Victorian era and involves lots of steam-powered technologies ahead of their time. There are variations and other time periods that fall into this category, but the Victorian era ones are the most common. I hope to do a post in the future digging deeper into the genre along with some recommendations.
Here are the levels to this challenge:
Brass Gears: Read 1-3 books
Flight Goggles: Read 4-7 books
Button-up Boots: Read 8-11 books
Clockwork Corset: Read 12+ books
The books you read for this challenge can count towards other challenges. Ebooks, Audiobooks, and Traditional formats all count along with rereads.
This challenge will run from January 1st, 2017-December 31st, 2017. Sign-up begins now and will run through September 30th, 2017. To join simply comment below with what level you are doing and a link to your blog post. I will be doing a bimonthly check-in starting in January.
I hope everyone enjoys this challenge,
