  • Em (RunawayWithDreamthieves)
    You know.....if there are infinite universes with infinite possibilities, then there exists a version of me that’s a part of a science girl gang on a pirate expedition to save sea monsters, and one day, I will consume enough caffeine to vibrate my molecules at a frequency that allows me to pass between realities and retreat into that universe. So, what's this book about? Felicity Montague would offer up everything on the altar of sacrifice, so ...

    “I don’t know what you’re referencing, madam,” the chairman says, his voice raised over mine.“I’m talking about menstruation, sir!” I shout in return.It’s like I set the hall on fire, manifested a venomous snake from thin air, also set that snake on fire, and then threw it at the board. The men all erupt into protestations and a fair number of horrified gasps. I swear one of them actually swoons at the mention of womanly bleeding....
  • Elise (TheBookishActress)
    Her dark eyes meet mine and I look between her and Johanna. In the company of women like this—sharp-edged as raw diamonds but with soft hands and hearts, not strong in spite of anything but powerful because of everything—I feel invincible. Every chink and rut and battering wind has made us tough and brave and impossible to strike down. We are made of mountains—or perhaps temples, with foundations that could outlast time itself. 4 1/2 stars...

    "Everyone has heard stories of women like us- cautionary tales, morality plays, warnings of what will befall you if you are a girl too wild for the world, a girl who asks too many questions or wants too much. If you set off into the world alone.Everyone has heard stories of women like us, and now we will make more of them."

    Last year I had the pleasure to read the first book in this series, The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue. And you know what? It made it to my list of best books I read in 2017. And now, here we are, getting Felicity's side of the story and it was both wonderful and slightly disappointing.The amount of research and dedication that it must have taken Mackenzi Lee to make this book so historically accurate is honestly astounding. There are s...

    ARC provided by Edelweiss in exchange for an honest reviewRating 5 StarsWords cannot describe how much I love this series and all of it’s characters. I was completely in love with the first book with its adorable love story between Monty and Percy. Felicity was not the main star in that one but she shone nonetheless. Her courage and strive to become a doctor in a world ruled by men was already so admirable. Now that she got her own story I coul...

    This was such a delight to read. Having adored The Gentlemen’s Guide to Vice and Virtue, I wasn’t sure how this would match up but I loved it just as much (if not slightly more?) It’s packed with action, friendship and strong, multilayered women.The main aspect of this novel I loved so much was the narrative surrounding Felicity, Johanna and Sim. I adored how different each of them were but how they were all portrayed as equally strong, jus...

    5 stars(view spoiler)[Everyone has heard stories of women like us, and we intend to make more of them. (hide spoiler)]I loved loved loved it so much. I was so happy to see Felicity annihilating men that were in her way and as usual being so outspoken and headstrong. FELICITY MONTAGUE IS A GODDAMN ICON AND NO ONE CAN TELL ME OTHERWISE. I was so glad that Monty and Percy made an appearance in this as well because I missed them so much. The whole co...

    It was just a lovely and empowering story and I loved it. How I had missed Monty and Percy, they were so cute and in love that they managed to warm my cold heart. Felicity was great, I loved her in the first book but in this one she truly had the possibility to shine. She wasn't perfect but she learned from her mistakes, such as thinking that girls who like what are considered frivolous things and parties are less of her. Thankfully Johanna prove...
  • Ellie (faerieontheshelf)
    5 beautiful, glowing, brilliant stars, for this is one of the most empowering books I’ve read all year; a consideration on misogyny, the patriarchy, and colonialism - but also the beauty of female friendships and the enduring strength and brilliance of women. I will treasure this book dearly for years to come.RTC!*In a move that will shock absolutely no one in this current political climate, I find I really really really want to read a book ful...

    2.5 E-ARC received through Edelweiss+ in exhange for a honest reviewREVIEW IN ENGLISHI was so excited to read this one because I enjoyed The gentleman's guide to vice and virtue and I was not surprised when I found out there would be second book narrated from the perspective of Monty's sister, Felicity. In the first book we learned that she is not like other girls of the eighteenth century and in this book we are going to have adventures with her...
  • Stacee
    I have an insane love for Gentlemen’s Guide, so when I learned Felicity was getting her own story, I was so excited. We even made it a priority for the arc drop at SDCC. Sadly, I’m a little disappointed. I liked Felicity well enough. What I loved the most about her in GG was her sass and wit and while she still has those, the majority of the book we’re in her head. The pages and pages of inner monologue got a little old. Of course the scene...

    "That's the lie of it all. You have to be better to prove yourself worthy of being equal."THE LADY'S GUIDE TO PETTICOATS AND PIRACY is pretty much the first book I've been unable to tear myself away from in.. a long time. It's funny, it's feminist, it's fun, it's fresh. It's lacking in any real romance and I really loved how Lee handled this element. It isn't absent completely but.. well, I won't spoil it. "You're so determined to become a lady d...

    'That's the lie of it all. You have to be better to prove yourself worthy of being equal.'*WHAT A PRECIOUS, PRECIOUS BOOKFelicity Montague, what a legend. I already loved her (and Percy) (soz Monty, I do like you) the most in The Gentleman's Guide to Vice and Virtue but she really shines in her own book especially with the promised asexual rep which is clear in all the ways Felicity is uninterested in physical affection and 'I'd like to be on my ...
