  6. Just stumbled by…Googled “remora” and one of the pictures brought me here :) I also frequently get sucked into a vicious Google/Wikipedia vortex and get lost for hours. Check out Souless by Gail Carriger. Steampunk/fantasy with a dash of romance. Very spunky Victorian heroine armed with a homemade umbrella to ward off unwanted attention from vampires & werewolves in London. Not the most incredible writing, but a fun, quick read!
