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.
