croik: (BONE ROAR)
So the new television season is off and running, and because I'm trying not to have Real Housewives reruns playing every time the TV is on, I've been trying out some of the new shows. And just because I feel like it, here are my results~

Under this cut )

In other news, I am reading....a book *GASP*. Yes, a real, paperback book. This may not sound monumental, but I actually haven't sat down with a book for a long time. For the past few weeks my lunch breaks have been taken up with The Somnambulist, which I picked up from Borders at 70% off after seeing it on a steampunk rec list (yes, I have developed a tentative interest in steampunk). Unfortunately, a little over halfway through the book, the plot has not moved ahead so much as one iota since the opening chapters. I'm pretty sure the entire point of this book is to introduce ugly, unlikeable characters, who assure me that something is going to happen, or something has already happened, without any explanation. Every single character has at one point said to the protagonist, "I heard about Clapham," so that said protagonist can wince, or squirm, or tell them to shut up, but if the reviews are to be believed, "Clapham" will never be explained. This book is all punk and no steam :\ And there certainly isn't any sleepwalking!

Has anyone heard of this book, or better yet, have any steampunk recs that are actually steampunk and don't suck?

Maybe next time I'll talk about movies...
