    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...

    “You’re trying to play a game designed by men. You’ll never win, because the deck is stacked and marked, and also you’ve been blindfolded and set on fire. You can work hard and believe in yourself and be the smartest person in the room and you’ll still get beat by the boys who haven’t two cents to rub together.” This is a story about what it was like to be a woman in the 18th century. What it was like to be someone who was constant...

    okay - I had heard some mixed reviews on this but I ended up quite liking it! The adventure was so engrossing and I loved the presence of DRAGONS. I also really liked the new characters and Felicity's character growth was good. I definitely found this super addictive and I kept reaching for it all the time which is great. AND PERCY AND MONTY ARE SO FCKIN SWEET !!!But there were some things that kind didn't sit right I will go into when I write my...

    ‘you deserve to be here. you deserve to exist. you deserve to take up space in this world of men.’ mackenzie lee is truly doing the lords work. this the feminist story that we may not deserve, but one that we definitely all need. praise be!although i wasnt as in love with the plot of this book as i was with ‘gentlemans guide,’ this had to be one the best messages i have ever read in a YA story. its so empowering! and the writing was absol...

    This contains such a delightful mixture of feminist rage and pastry appreciation that I am LIVING. It had a lot to live up to with The Gentleman's Guide To Vice And Virtue being like one of my all time favourite books...and ok, sure, it didn't quite live up to it (for reasons I'll mention later) but I still had a marvellous good time reading this. The 3 featured women were the actual best ever. And the ending just was !!! I am so warm and fuzzy r...

    this was everything my ace heart wanted it to be and I swear I’m actually gonna write a review sometime soon————————I woke up this morning to an email approving me for this ARC and I had to blink at least ten times before I realized I wasn’t dreaming ————————so ready for Felicity to fuck shit up and become a doctor and be the historical aroace icon we deserve!!!!!

    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...

    I thought it was pretty good. I will probably have to do a re read because it might just be the mood I'm in. 😕Happy Reading! Mel 🖤🐶🐺🐾
  • Larry H
    It was so good to get back into this series! I loved The Gentleman's Guide to Vice and Virtue (see my review), Mackenzi Lee's first book in this series, and I hadn't realized how much I missed these characters until I began her new book. Once again, I am so taken by the originality of her ideas, and the way she makes books set in the 18th century feel so modern."It would be so much easier if I did not want to know everything so badly. If I did ...

    A lot to love here: a strong focus on female friendship, asexual representation, and several feminist one-liners and passages that made my fanboy heart happy. I so appreciated how Felicity stood by her values of wanting her autonomy, to make a mark in the world, and to help others, without budging on how little she cared about things like romance. Mackenzi Lee did a good job of portraying her emotions throughout the book, like her disillusionment...

    Review:Well, this... didn't quite live up to my astronomical expectations. I mean, I wrote a parody song expressing my excitement towards its very existence. I never do anything like that. Ever. But damn did I enjoy 'The Lady's Guide to Petticoats and Piracy'. After waiting ridiculously for over a year, I get wonderful female characters and relationships as a reward, as well as adventure and intrigue.Felicity Montague is sure to become an icon, i...

    I think..... there MIGHT be an issue when certain character cameos that make up approximately 5% of the book make me more excited than....... the rest of the book

    I. LOVE. THIS. BOOK!I just love everything is this series. I know there’s only two at the minute but…we can dream! There might be more and if there is, what amazing directions we have to go in. It’s no secret that I ADORED The Gentleman’s Guide To Vice And Virtue. It wasn’t just one of my favourite books of last year, it is one of my favourite books of ALL TIME. I will admit that to start with I was really worried because there is not h...

    3 StarsThere's a lot to love here, with a strong focus on female friendship, fun adventure, two awesome new side characters and asexual representation. But the pacing was off? Like you kind of know where the whole thing is headed from the first page but it takes 400+ to get there and a ton of travelling and side quests I couldn't seem to care about.It was like as much fun as the characters and ideas where, the plot just wasn't there?
  • TheYALibrarian
    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...
  • Trina (Between Chapters)
    I liked this story more than I expected to! I don't read much historical fiction any more and this did seem run of the mill in terms of how it addressed sexism and having a 'not like other girls' MC (she gets that idea checked really well by her more "girly" friend). But it was a fun adventure with an interesting dynamic between the women and an added fantastical element. My enjoyment was equal if not greater than my feelings on the first book an...

    Mackenzi Lee’s The Gentleman's Guide to Vice and Virtue was a fun listen for me. So, there was no way I wasn’t going to listen to the second book in the series. Felicity was definitely born in the wrong century. She wants nothing more than to be a doctor. And she’ll stop at nothing to get a chance. First off, I totally understood Felicity. I’ve often offered up thanks I was born in an era when I could do whatever I wanted. She’s not cap...
