Armchair BEA: Day 6 (Genres and Wrap-Up)


Genres: Did We Miss Any?

In the discussion posts we have had in the past days, I do not think we've missed many genres! But today, I would like to highlight one that is often glossed over.

Steampunk.

According to Dictionary.com, steampunk is defined as...

"a subgenre of science fiction and fantasy featuring advanced machines and other technology based on steam power of the 19th century and taking place in a recognizable historical period or a fantasy world."

I really like the steampunk genre (or sub-genre, depending on how you look at it!). Here are some of my favorites:










I have truly appreciated the steampunk books I have read, and hope for more!


Wrap-Up

Well, this was my first year participating in Armchair BEA, and I loved it! I really liked creating extra posts each day and discussing genres. 

And I won a giveaway! While it was by no means the book I wanted, I can't complain too much :)

Thank you, Armchair BEA hosts and sponsors, for a wonderful couple of days of posts, chats, and giveaways!
