The Blue Castle by Lucy Maud Montgomery

First off, I'll start by saying - I'm not sure what's going on with the cover on this particular edition - definitely don't judge this book by this particular cover! Okay, now on to the good stuff! This is one of my all-time favorite books. Seriously. Top five, easy. I first read it as a teenager and have re-read it at least once a year since then and ended up buying an ebook version to give my poor, battered paperback copy a rest. If you have to put a few adjectives on it, they would be "lovely" and "sweet". I cheer on the heroine's transformation and path of self-discovery and shudder at the over-bearing, stuck-in-stone family she lived with for the first 29 years of her life. By the time I close the book, I feel as if I've spent a few hours with the sort of old friends that are more like family and know that it was time well spent!

Soulless (Parasol Protectorate #1) by Gail Carriger
Soulless (Parasol Protectorate #1)

I admit it - I picked this book up only because I happened to be walking past and the cover caught my eye. I had never read steampunk before, despite being drawn to the style for quite a while (even if it is the eurotrash of nerd-dom) and was a bit leery at first. However, I'm a sucker for a well-developed alternate reality and the concept of vampires, wherewolves and ghosts being put to practical use in the British government was so intriguing! Add to that parasols, tea, witty dialog and Gail Carriger's superbly crafted characters and this book (and the rest of the series) quickly vaulted onto the "favorite" section of my bookshelf!
