This was a fun story, but I wasn‘t as impressed by it as everyone else seems to be... I didn‘t like Monty at all, and by the end I was just impatient for the story to be over. I did like Felicity, so I might give her book a try eventually.

Super hilarious and entertaining, the Guide is a fast read full of adventure, sarcasm, and bittersweet romance. I enjoyed all the characters throughly, and Ms. Lee does a wonderful job of depicting LGBTQ+ struggles in the 18th Century.

I enjoyed this from start to finish!

The characterisation in this is astounding. Felicity is my favourite, defying all the expectations of a lady. Cannot wait to pick up the Lady‘s Guide.

The plot was fascinating too, introducing slight elements of ‘magic‘ which certainly appealed to my penchant for fantasy.

Overall, this was also very informative. Historical fiction is great! Had never heard of the Grand Tour tradition before this.

8/10

A pack of characters I love chasing across a large expanse with something life-changing at the end of the line that everyone is scrambling for? It's not (just) this book and its sequel, it's The Chase!
I really enjoyed the meta explanation for the make up choices in Trek. Also: I have idly wondered if the genetic precursors have any connection to the Founders...
#startreksummermay

Megabooks Me too re: the founders, but maybe it‘s just because the woman in The Chase later portrayed the main female Shapeshifter in DS9 1mo

Helllpp, I can't seem to get into this book. 😔 I'm nearly 100 pages in and though I find the lines real witty and funny, it's just not doing it for me. I had to pick up a B&V jumbo comics (😍) as a breather. I caved in already and bought The Lady's Guide (in hardcover, too) bec the premise really appealed to me, so I'm hoping that one's better than this. 😖

Centique I have those moments too! Sometimes it‘s just not the right time and you can put it down for a while - sometimes it‘s not ever going to be right for you. But Betty and Veronica is Always Wonderful! 😊 2mo
fleeting @Centique sometimes I feel like if I abandon them, I'll never get back to them. 😅 So I try to continue! But yeah there are times when I just give up and donate/give the book away. 😕 And yes, I always buy these B&V collections! 😃🤗 2mo

A cute historical queer YA adventure novel, "A Gentlemens Guide to Vice and Virtue" was the story to help me out of my reading funk. Monty is a quirky narrator who is in love with his best friend Percy. After circumstances push them off the path of a tour of the European continent, the pair learn how to be true adventurers as they learn about theirselves and each other.

AutumnRLS Looking forward to reading this. 2mo

I really enjoyed this! The rakish charm, the banter, the queer romance, the way Percy and Felicity made Monty check himself fairly often, the descriptions of the cities on The Grand Tour. I like that Monty is deeply flawed, but growing. I also enjoy that he doesn't have an ability to perfectly handle everything situation...he has his strengths and limitations "Fortune favors the flirtatious."

An enjoyable, solid #QueerYA. Monty is an irresponsible, vain, bisexual rake on his 18th century tour of the Continent. Along for the journey are his smart sister and his sweet BFF (also queer, and Black). They find themselves embroiled in a fantastical adventure including alchemy, thievery, and pirates. Monty is a difficult character to sympathize w/ at times and I didn't feel quite as emotionally invested in the characters as I would have liked.

Crinoline_Laphroaig Monty he's such ass sometimes but couldn't help but love him. Percy 😍 3mo

Not what I was expecting. It's a cute, enjoyable story, if you're into pirates and excessive drinking and gay teenage boys set in the 1700s. There were things I disliked, but as a whole, I deem it worthy of reading.

This book has come up on my radar more than once; spur of the moment I got the audio version from my Library and read it this week. I must not have been in the right frame of mind for it, I found it slightly boring. Okay, but just not worth more than two ⭐️.

I absolutely (or as Monty would say, absobloodylutely) love this book. The characters were perfect. They each had their flaws and the plot was great. I couldn‘t put the book down. I would highly recommend this book if you are in to any of he following: historical fiction, romance, adventure, fantasy, YA and anything similar!

#londoncalling Sophie and I are delighted by this audio book so far, in which young Monty leaves England with his best friend Percy (on whom he is totally crushing) for a Grand Tour of the continent in the 18th century before Percy goes to law school and Monty has to work with his father. Will he and Percy move their relationship into the realm of the romantic? We shall see! #marchintothe70s (1770s)

So, is it weird that I am absolutely delighted by these two being a couple!? I mean, they're basically kids, I'm nearly 40. They're also fictional, so I forgive myself! 😂 I have so many favorite fictional couples, like Jamie & Claire and Cormoran & Robin(even though they're not technically a romantic couple, they're a helluva team!) But I just adore Monty and Percy! Their dynamic is endearing and adorable. They make me laugh and smile a lot!😍

3.75 ⭐️

This book was a fun and quick read that really explored a lot of important issues like race, gender, sexuality, disorders and abuse. I appreciated Felicity‘s strength and knowledge but Percy was by far the most complex and unique character. I was originally going to give this 4 stars but Monty matured so quickly and in such an overly redeeming way that it felt a bit too unrealistic.

madamereadsalot1 I loved this book! Definitely a 5 ⭐ worthy read. I thought it was very smartly written & funny. I liked that Monty was called out on his privilege frequently & eventually acknowledged it himself in a humble sort of way w/out losing his essential Monty-ness. In most books, the privileged character is either the snotty bad character, or the "holy" main character that is accepted as is because they're the ONE! It also has moral w/out being obvious. 4mo

This is a highly enjoyable book. It successfully blends several genres and it creates quite an unbelievable adventure, in which several important issues are tackled (such as race, sexual identity and misogyny) with a modern sensibility, though lacking a certain profundity that one might expect. Although there are a few plot holes and it gets predictable at times, this doesn't affect the enjoyment that one gets from reading this book. 📚

Tried to concentrate on the walking.

Kaye Good for you Jules. Heel to toe. Pretty soon, you‘ll be so used to it, you‘ll do it without thinking about it. 5mo
julesG @kaye Takes a lot of energy to keep reminding myself to properly walk. Not to mention cramping muscles 5mo
Kaye Yea, it‘ll probably be challenging at first ( sorta like physical therapy) , but once you do it for awhile, it gets easier. I never knew I walked incorrectly until my Dr who replaced both knees had me walk down his hallway. He pointed out that I was favoring one leg over the other. I didn‘t even notice. Your body will adjust and the leg muscles will get stronger if you walk correctly. You can do it Jules. 💕 5mo
julesG @kaye on it, even in my flat. It's just not easy to do it on snow. 😉 And uphill. 5mo
Kaye Right. I sometimes wonder if we should‘ve started this in good weather, but then thought , those that are willing to get out in the snow, rain and cold to walk will be the TOUGH ONES. If we can walk in this, we can walk in anything. 😁 5mo

This YA book has won a ton of awards, and now I see why. There's nothing else like it out there. It's an adventure, it's historical fiction, it's a little mystical, and it's a fantastic romance between two male teens. It also tackles topics of race and sexism in the 18th century. This was 500 pages of fun! #YAL
