This or That Thursday: Challenge #82 Steampunk

So every week Rae from the Bookmark Chronicles poses a bookish question. If you want to check out the challenge click the link. I actually have missed the past couple weeks and am just jumping back into it here.

THIS WEEK IS:Have you ever heard of/read steampunk?

Steampunk is a genre of science fiction that has usually has a historical setting and features steam-powered  or more technical machinery rather than advanced futuristic technology. It’s like science fiction but not what you normally think of as science fiction—space crafts, laser beams, talking robots, etc.

I have actually heard of steampunk before this prompt. I didn’t really know the exact definition tough. I just kind of learned it from reading it.

The Falconer by Elizabeth May—you can read my review here—is the first and only steampunk book I’ve read. It was interesting. I didn’t love it. I found it was less to do with the steampunk genre though and more the author didn’t set up the steampunk world well.

HAVE YOU read any steampunk? LET ME KNOW IN THE COMMENTS!
