I think I'm going to shut From My Bookshelf down for a while; maybe for good. I've been putting this together for quite a few years now and it's starting to feel a bit more of a chore. I'll keep my Goodreads & Instagram connected, but with the state of the world right now, I just want to read without worrying about making sure I post something about it. Who knows - when the world starts to make some semblance of sense again, I may start actively posting here again. Until then, as always, happy reading!

Waiting on Wednesday: Changeless by Gail Carriger

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that are eagerly anticipated.

My "can't-wait-to-read" selection for this week is:

Changeless by Gail Carriger

Changeless is the follow up to Gail Carriger's Soulless, the first in The Parasol Protectorate series. Soulless is probably one of my favorite books in a long time, and I'm sure will be at the top of my favorites for 2010. It's a funny, smart and sexy story. You can read my entire review of Soulless here. The third book in the series, Blameless, will be coming out in September, and I'm sure that I'll be adding that as a Waiting on Wednesday selection as it gets closer to its release.

From Amazon: **spoiler alert!!**
Alexia Tarabotti, the Lady Woolsey, awakens in the wee hours of the mid-afternoon to find her husband, who should be decently asleep like any normal werewolf, yelling at the top of his lungs. Then he disappears - leaving her to deal with a regiment of supernatural soldiers encamped on her doorstep, a plethora of exorcised ghosts, and an angry Queen Victoria.


But Alexia is armed with her trusty parasol, the latest fashions, and an arsenal of biting civility. Even when her investigations take her to Scotland, the backwater of ugly waistcoats, she is prepared: upending werewolf pack dynamics as only the soulless can.

She might even find time to track down her wayward husband, if she feels like it.


Changeless will be released on March 30, 2010 from Orbit.
