What I'm reading now

With the magical tech of getting ebooks to my ipad I now have two books that I am looking forward to reading this week. One of them being ....drum roll......The Girl in the Steel Corset by Kady Cross.
This is supposed to be a steam punk YA book. Here is the summary just in case you want to read it too.
In 1897 England, sixteen-year-old Finley Jayne has no one…except the "thing" inside her. When a young lord tries to take advantage of Finley, she fights back. And wins. But no normal Victorian girl has a darker side that makes her capable of knocking out a full-grown man with one punch….
Only Griffin King sees the magical darkness inside her that says she's special, says she's one of them. The orphaned duke takes her in from the gaslit streets against the wishes of his band of misfits: Emily, who has her own special abilities and an unrequited love for Sam, who is part robot; and Jasper, an American cowboy with a shadowy secret.
Griffin's investigating a criminal called The Machinist, the mastermind behind several recent crimes by automatons. Finley thinks she can help—and finally be a part of something, finally fit in.
But The Machinist wants to tear Griff's little company of strays apart, and it isn't long before trust is tested on all sides. At least Finley knows whose side she's on—even if it seems no one believes her.

Of course, heres the book trailer too. Enjoy

-After reading the book I decided this song went with the book.....Darkside by Kelly Clarkson
