Tea should be required for the reading of all Gail Carriger books, don't you think?

did you see the cover art for this today? i am pro cover. http://gailcarriger.blogspot.com/2012...


Wendy Darling I hadn't seen that, Kate, thank you! I likey the cover, too. :) I'm DYING for her YA series, though, I'm so sad it won't be out until next year.


message 3: by [deleted user] (new)

i know, such a long wait. i die with you.


Wendy Darling Let us die on the couch together. Oh, oh, Kate! Did you see the photos I posted of my new tea cups on Twitter?


message 5: by [deleted user] (new)

the hidden fox?


Wendy Darling Yes. :) And the hidden bear one. I love them so much.


message 7: by [deleted user] (new)

yes i saw! can we enjoy them on the couch together? do you have a preference - fox or bear?


Wendy Darling Ohh, I love them both! The bear looks sort of disgruntled, which I rather enjoy, but then the fox looks so calm and happy. You're the guest, I'll let you choose. :D

Oh ok, ill choose the bear then. Although im sure we'll make it through a few cups of tea before Feb so we can always switch :)


Wendy Darling Hee hee, yes. :) Oh, to be in Victorian London, Kate. *sigh*

message 13: by ♥Rachel♥ (new)

♥Rachel♥ Oh gosh, I love this cover! Hope the insides are just as good. Enjoy. :)


message 14: by Renu (new)

Renu Ooh, I love the title and the cover is awesome too! Hope you enjoy it, Wendy. :)


Wendy Darling It's really fun so far, ladies! As you'd expect with Gail Carriger.

Also, it still makes me sad that Kate deleted her GoodReads account. :(


message 16: by Carissa (new)

Carissa Viera I LOL'ed at this photo! What a gorgeous cover too.


Wendy Darling Hah. Well, I think it should! And yes, I like the cover, too. More than I like the Parasol Protectorate covers, actually, though this one is similar in style.


Skeletonorchid This is just pure perfection <3 Looking foward to read this book , although with high expections which sometimes can turn out to be a bad thing


Wendy Darling :) I am only about 60 pages in, but so far it's very fun! I agree it's better to keep expectations in check, though.

P.S. The finishing school FLOATS.

Sanette Oh I'm so excited for this book! I preordered it a while ago and can't wait for it to be delivered. I'm looking forward to your review.


Sarah (saz101) YES. ABSOLUTELY. Anything else is an afront ^__^

I like it better too! I think it's the use of selective coloring that really makes it work.


Wendy Darling Excellent! I'm glad you have one coming to you, Sanette. :)

Sarah--yay! Tea lovers (and Gail Carriger lovers) unite! If only we could all gather together for a giant tea party. The chatter would be deafening.

Carissa--agreed. The purply background really makes everything pop, and I think keeping it simpler helps, too. (No skylines and such.)


message 24: by Bonnie (new)

Bonnie Tea is most definitely required. It might be a tad difficult to turn the pages in gloves though. ;)


message 25: by Rogier (new) - added it

Rogier have fun wendy


Wendy Darling That's what I said on my Instagram, Bonnie!

Thanks Rogier. :) So far, I am!

Cindy Can't wait to read this one. I know you read her as an adult in the Soulless series and really like it. And yes some herbal orange and spice tea sounds delicious:D I think I want some now it is freezing in Iowa. lol.


Wendy Darling Oh, I think you'd like this author, Cindy! *pours tea for you* And yes, I am immensely fond of Soulless. I still want to pepper it with kisses.


message 29: by Lili (new) - rated it 4 stars

Lili Oh gosh, I want this one so badly! It looks like I'll absolutely adore it! kldjfglkjdfg :/


message 30: by Bonnie (new)

Bonnie It just got added onto Edelweiss in case anyone's interested in requesting it. :)


Wendy Darling I feel bad since I've had this for awhile and am just now getting around to it, Lili--but not too much longer to wait! It's nearly publishing time.

Thanks for the heads up, Miss Bonnie! I'll let people know if there is more hand-wringing. :)

True, true. Still over 3 weeks away though :/ And I put myself on a book buying ban due to saving up for college textbooks but GAH! LOOK AT IT!

Jen Ryland Love the photo!


Wendy Darling Thanks Jen! I guess tea goes well with most books, though. :)


message 37: by Jen (new)

Jen Ryland I'm making some right now to drink while I write reviews.


Wendy Darling That sounds lovely! I might have to do that myself later.


Jessie  (Ageless Pages Reviews) I am so envious! I love Gail Carriger - and your teacup set. I can't wait to see how this one is. It has a lot to live up to with the Parasol Protectorate, but honestly, I don't see GC losing a step in a new genre.

Same here! Can't wait to see what you have to say about it.


Wendy Darling So far the transition to YA is seamless, Jessie and Michelle--the author's witty narrative hasn't dumbed down at all. I hope you get your hands on it soon! :) I love this author, too.
