Steampunk Challenge

Today I've decided to participate in a new challenge and am already looking forward to explore a genre I haven't been much in contact before called Steampunk. This contest is hosted by Rikki at The Bookkeeper, feel free to enter if you like Steampunk or if you just want to experience something new in our wide universe of books!I think I'll set my goal at 5 books first...

Here is the description: 

What is Steampunk? According to the New Oxford American Dictionary the sub-genre Steampunk is
a genre of science fiction that typically features steam-powered machinery rather than advanced technology.
I have been wanting to try out steampunk for a while now and recently read one story which I quite liked. So now I’m on to explore a bit more and it seems there are more people out there who want to get to know this genre better.
You want to read steampunk, share your opinion and reviews with like minded people? You want to get recommendations from others because you have no idea where to begin? Join the steampunk challenge and share the experience!
The challenge runs from October to October and there are no obligations other than to have fun discovering a genre and let other participants know about what you find.
You can sign up here with Mr. Linky. Once the challenge has started I will create another page for review linksreading recommendations are more than welcome.  or other blog posts related to Steampunk. Also, your
I’m looking forward to this challenge and to a fun and “steamy” twelve months!
