5.0 out of 5 stars I Loved it! 24 Jan. 2015
Format:Kindle Edition
What I Thought:

These books are short, fun and easy to get caught up in! I found myself in a mix of two states. On the one hand, I felt and giddy as I did as a child, when I was reading my Goosebumps choose your path books, and on the other hand I felt very adult, with the sensual, steamy and exciting stories I was reading.

I love that there are so many possibilities, all based on what you decide to choose. I found myself going back to reread the story, trying another option. That made this book not only feel like it was several books in one, but it also was a great buy, as it gave me a lot of fun!

I am particularly fond of the two feelings the story gave me, as I like remembering my childhood days, and I love anything that can replicate the joy and carefree time I had then. I also like that this book is a choose your path, with a very adult twist. It is great to have the options in front of you, which gives you the feeling that you are actually in the journey,in this case I was Copper.

I thought the story of a Heart for Copper was excellent. I liked the cogs and steampunk nature, that made Copper everything she was, the overall setup and feel of the story, with its blend of characters, and I liked options we were given and when we were given them.

Copper was a brilliant character, new to life, wanting to explore the world and very intuitive. She made a great, strong character, with that blend of naivety, questioning nature and passion for learning and living. We are choosing our path through her introduction and adventures in life and I really like the places it took me!

Overall, I really enjoyed the story (stories if you go back and read the other options, like I did).

4.0 out of 5 stars Really impressed by this one! 2 May 2015
By Sarah
Format:Kindle Edition
(Source: I received a digital copy of this book for free on a read-to-review basis. Thanks to SilkWords, and NetGalley.)

“I spend many lonely hours in my master’s workshop, when he is away at school or in the city with his family. In those hours I feel empty and soulless, and I have often prayed that when he loses interest in me – which he inevitably shall – he will also unmake me, rather than leave me collecting dust in my chair.”

This was a short story about an automaton given a clockwork heart, and this book again had a ‘choose-your-own-adventure’ sort of twist to it.

I felt really sorry for Copper in this book, she came across as really human, even though she was an automaton. The choices and decisions she had to make were tough on her, and she showed that she had real feelings and emotions, no matter what she was made of.

“At moments like this I almost imagined that the whole in my chest had been filled. I could feel an ache there – an ache that should have not been.”

The book had a ‘choose-your-own-adventure’ theme, where there were choices to be made and depending on the choice you were directed to a different chapter of the book. This worked well as we were able to see how such choices affected Copper’s life, and left her in very different places.

I read this through a few times to find all the different endings, but I have to say that I actually liked all of them, which was quite a surprise! I did have a favourite though, and it did have a bit of a ‘happily ever after’ in there.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Heart For Copper 6 May 2015
Format:Kindle Edition
I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. Many thanks to SilkWords and Netgalley.

When I was about eight or nine, I was really into Choose You Own Adventure books. Like, really into them. I think I read pretty much every single one until I came across one that featured space vampires. It had some fairly graphic illustrations of post-vampire dead bodies that scared the living crap out of me and I never read them again.

Until now. A Heart For Copper is basically a Choose Your Own Adventure story about an automaton girl called Copper, built by a young man and offered the chance at life. You have to guide her through her decisions as she experiences a flesh body for the first time (or decides to stay an automaton). It’s mostly romance, but with a self-discovery thread as well and some good messages about not letting your romantic interest define who you are.

A Heart For Copper isn’t a long book and actually I was so pleased with the setting and the characters that I would have been happy to read a longer version.

The general vibe is steampunk, but it’s set in the post-digital age where all earlier technology has been banned, so everyone wanders around in corsets and top hats. Everything is clockwork and there are pedal-powered airplanes. Very cool!

I never realised this kind of book existed for the YA/adult market and I’m really glad I found it!

4.0 out of 5 stars 3 1/2 stars for an enjoyable "choose your own story" romance 13 Feb. 2015
By E. VanZwoll - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
A HEART FOR COPPER is a "choose your own adventure" style book, taking you through the different choices that Copper must make in her life. While this format is somewhat distracting, having to flip back & forth through the book, the story still manages to flow well.

Created by William, Copper is an automaton who is now given the chance for life. But this chance, brought about by Clockwork Magic, is not only dangerous and illegal, it also forces Copper to immediately make choices that will forever change her life. Does she give William the key her her mechanical heart, choosing to stay with him? Or does she go off on her own, keeping the key, to discover who she is as a person. Both bittersweet and questioning, this is not your "Happily Ever After" story, and romance is not guaranteed.

I enjoyed these book, but my one major gripe is one that some people may consider to be a spoiler, though the book will still be enjoyable even knowing this detail. If you wish to avoid the spoiler, please stop reading the review here.

Copper only becomes a "real" flesh & blood girl by giving her heart to William...If she decides to leave William for any reason, she turned back to cloth, metal, and wires. If she decides to keep her heart to herself from the start and continue on her quest to learn who she is, she never becomes flesh & blood... at least not in the storyline we are given. Who knows what would happen in the future...Is it the act of giving your heart that makes you real? Is it giving it to your "owner?" Either way, the idea that Copper only becomes real by giving the key to her heart to someone leaves a bad taste in my mouth.

Even with that issue, the stories are still enjoyable and I would be interested in reading more.

Thank you to the publisher and Netgalley for providing me with a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

It is great to see an adult version of something I found so fun as a child! I love the writing style and the length of the book. I highly recommend giving these books a go, especially as they have all levels of heat available!

4.0 out of 5 stars Wind Her Up 5 Dec. 2014
By John Green, NCGBT - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
A Heart for Copper is a steampunk twist on the Pygmalion myth, where a lonely inventor- William- creates a clockwork automaton and falls in love with it. Once he secures the means to give it life the reader, taking the role of Copper, must choose how the story unfolds. Do you become flesh or remain a construct? Should you stay with William or leave to explore the world on your own? Will you sacrifice your new life to save his or run away with him seeking love and adventure?

As a Choose Your Path story it's an enjoyable change of pace only marred by the intrusion of having to scroll through pages to continue the tale. It's a fun, easy read that makes for an entertaining break in your day.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love this story 26 Jan. 2015
By Dana19018 - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
This story hooked me from the get go. As I read, the song Shatter Me began to play and I had to laugh-this is the perfect song for this particular book. Wind up girl meets her future in an unsure world. The imagery is very inspiring and I had to keep turning the pages to see what the author was going to do next-what choices she would allow me to have to weave my own version of this tale. Such a lovely romance! I can't wait to read more by this author.

5/5
