*snicker* goodreads has Napoleonic War book tagged as Victorian Steampunk

I'll post prettier usual posts in the morning but I just rolled a 10 for booklikes-opoly landing me on a square for a Victorian/steampunk book.

 

I was going to skip as utterly a genre I'm (a) tired of a and (b) was never that fond of anyway (well, not the ones that just take today's technology and turn it clockwork/steam by making up names or being an excuse to put heroines in corsets having to be stilted-mannered ... ).  

 

The Temeraire series book (alternate history Napoleonic War with dragons), Empire of Ivory - Naomi Novik, I got off library waitlist, however, got shelved as steampunk on goodreads -- https://www.goodreads.com/shelf/users/6412042?shelf=steampunk
