Delitealex | 5773 comments Tayla and Kelli are starting Etiquette & Espionage (Finishing School, #1) by Gail Carriger November 1st


We are starting with Curtsies & Conspiracies (Finishing School, #2) by Gail Carriger on Nov 10th

Does one need four fully grown foxgloves for decorating a dinner table for six guests? Or is it six foxgloves to kill four fully grown guests?

Sophronia's first year at Mademoiselle Geraldine's Finishing Academy for Young Ladies of Quality has certainly been rousing! For one thing, finishing school is training her to be a spy--won't Mumsy be surprised? Furthermore, Sophronia got mixed up in an intrigue over a stolen device and had a cheese pie thrown at her in a most horrid display of poor manners.

Now, as she sneaks around the dirigible school, eavesdropping on the teachers' quarters and making clandestine climbs to the ship's boiler room, she learns that there may be more to a field trip to London than is apparent at first. A conspiracy is afoot--one with dire implications for both supernaturals and humans. Sophronia must rely on her training to discover who is behind the dangerous plot-and survive the London Season with a full dance card.

In this sequel to New York Times bestselling Etiquette & Espionage, class is back in session with more petticoats and poison, tea trays and treason. Gail's distinctive voice, signature humor, and lush steampunk setting are sure to be the height of fashion this season.


Feel free to join us :)

Amanda  (mommy2gb) | 663 comments Etiquette & Espionage (Finishing School, #1) by Gail Carriger Lesson 4: I was quite confused in the beginning while trying to learn their world and what is part of it. Sophronia is so much like my yougest daughter - inquisitive to the point of frustration, tinkering and building all the time, and never content to settle for the easy outcome. (view spoiler)
