The Clockwork Scarab: A Stoker & Holmes Novel by Colleen Gleason. In 1889 London young women are turning up dead, and Evaline Stoker, relative of Bram, and Mina Holmes, niece of Sherlock, are summoned to investigate the clue of the not-so-ancient Egyptian scarabs—but where does a time traveler fit in?
The Clockwork Scarab by Colleen Gleason <-I honestly did like this book. It had really cool steampunk elements along with the NIECE OF SHERLOCK HOLMES!!?! Awesome. It had some things (love triangles, novel to series syndrome, etc) that made it a little bit lacking, especially the ending. But all in all it's a really cool idea that was pretty well executed.

14. A book worth reading: Divergent by Veronica Roth. The sequel, Insurgent is out this month. This is the best of contemporary YA dystopian literature ...you know, if you're into that kind of thing. *It's true I've absolutely both books.
Book Review of Divergent, by Veronica Roth #divergent #veronicaroth #insurgent #hungergames #thehungergames #tris #four #tobias #novel #fiction #books #reading #youngadult
Divergent, by Veronica Roth. If you need to get a dystopian fix, young adult series seem to be the thing now. This is the first of a trilogy, and certainly worth reading. If you liked The Hunger Games, you'll probably enjoy this series as well. About a 16 year old girl who lives in Chigaco - where the city is divided into 5 factions. When you are 16, you choose your faction, a choice that will define who and what you are for good. I really enjoyed this first book - interesting concept.
