Review: Manners and Mutiny by Gail Carriger

Manners & Mutiny (Finishing School)Manners & Mutiny (Finishing School, #4)

My Rating: 4 Stars of 5
Amazon’s Rating: 4.5
Pages: 352

The final book of the Finishing series by Gail Carriger is packed full of excitement, fluttering eyelashes, and deadly acquaintances.

Sophronia is an young lady of good graces, as far as appearances go, but appearances are deceiving.

Taken from Goodreads,

If one must flirt…flirt with danger.
Lessons in the art of espionage aboard Mademoiselle Geraldine’s floating dirigible have become tedious without Sophronia’s sootie Soap nearby. She would rather thwart dastardly Picklemen, yet her concerns about their wicked intentions are ignored.

Who can she trust? Royal werewolf dewan? Stylish vampire Lord Akeldama? Only one thing is certain: a large-scale plot is under way. Sophronia must be ready to save her friends, her school, and all of London from disaster.

If you’ve been following this series, the final book is fun and a satisfying close. There is even an epilogue that helps put some of the “I wonder what happen to…” questions to rest. All in all, I would recommend this series to anyone who enjoys steampunk, Victorian easy reads.

Buy from Amazon ($10.97), here.

Library Haul!


I’ve added Six of Crows, Wink Poppy Midnight, and Red Queen to my TBR pile. Felt like YA, what can I say. Librarian checking me out said “these books look dark and scary”. I guess? Lol.

So, have any of y’all read these? I’ve seen them all over tumblr and have wanted to read them for a while. I’m excited!

What I’m Reading Now: “Throne of Glass” by Sarah J. Maas

This is a really intense, well paced high fantasy YA novel. Maas claims to have used the Cinderella fairytale as inspiration, but this story is so polar opposite from the standard tale. I really like it so far. In fact, I’ve nearly finished it after only a few hours reading. Definitely looking forward to the rest of the series.
