Manners & Mutiny
Manners & Mutiny | Gail Carriger
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 sweet sootie Soap nearby. She would much rather be using her skills to thwart the dastardly Picklemen, yet her concerns about their wicked intentions are ignored, and now she's not sure whom to trust. What does the brusque werewolf dewan know? On whose side is the ever-stylish vampire Lord Akeldama? Only one thing is certain: a large-scale plot is under way, and when it comes to fruition, Sophronia must be ready to save her friends, her school, and all of London from disaster--in decidedly dramatic fashion, of course.What will become of our proper young heroine when she puts her years of training to the test? Find out in this highly anticipated and thrilling conclusion to the New York Times bestselling Finishing School series!

2/5⭐ A relatively decent, action-packed finish to the series. It was satisfying to see Sophronia finally work out a relationship with Soap (seriously, the whole love triangle attempt in the previous books was awful). I would not mind a spinoff series focusing on Pillover.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 🎧 2019.05.02
I loved this entire series (⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ for the series as a whole)! Each character was interesting and added their own twist to the story, I loved the humor...I snorted throughout each book. Sort of a Steampunk Harry Potter/Twilight/Mary Poppin/007 mashup? I don‘t recall who the recommendation derived from but I ended up listening to all 4 books back-to-back. #BlameLitsy for the win yet again.

AlaMich That‘s quite a mashup! 😆 7mo
Chelleo @AlaMich I know! There were so many elements that resembled each book/character 😂🤣😂 7mo

Calling it a night. A good start to #24B4Monday - much better than I expected! Finished one, started and finished another, read four or five chapters of our current Nancy Drew to the kiddo (hope to finish it tomorrow), plus history and grammar lessons - all in all a great reading day!

Did I mention I love the color yellow? Manners & Mutiny was my favorite of Finishing School Series. That ending!

Today I broke in my new foot brace, it's helping with my foot drop.

Anyway, I walked past these lovely two guys. They are replicas of the Linenweaver Statue in the town centre. Town has a very long history of linen weaving, cloth making,... A shop can buy one of these replicas and custom decorate it. This tobacco shop got two.

It's overcast today.

This is up next in the #ParasolProtectorate readalong - as of yesterday! March 3rd is the end date for this book so that‘s plenty of time to dig in. After this is a novella I‘ve not read so I‘ll join in then.

Finishing School, book four.

Sophronia and her friends discover what the Picklemen are really after and do their best to foil the dastardly plot. The friendship between Sophronia, Dimity, and Agatha is fantastic and I love that all the loose ends were tied up.

A fun, action-packed conclusion to the series.

“I declare you are properly finished.”

Listening to the last installment in this series while prepping for dinner... Homemade low carb Alfredo sauce with zucchini noodles (not homemade this time 😕) & broccoli florets. Or, regular pasta and sauce for those in the family not on the low carb diet or hate Alfredo sauce. #audiocooking #lowcarb #keto #finishingschoolseries #gailcarriger

Listening to the last of this great series and baking today. My friend and I want to open a bakery/cafe so on Sundays we work on recipes. Today I‘m baking a Honey Oat bread. Yumm!

Anyone have a favorite bread you've tried at a bakery or cafe?

The bread is a recipe from bakingdom.com

Bookzombie Wow! I don‘t think my Dollar Trees have such great picks. Maybe it‘s just me. 2y
LibrarianRyan @Bookzombie it depends. There are 4 in this town that I know of and each carries different things. The Dollar Tree in the better neighborhood carries the best books. The dollar tree by the mall carries good books but it only rotates every 6 months or so. The super dollar tree has mostly religious books and the dollar tree closest to me that is in the "bad" neighborhood doesn't carry books beside color and puzzle books. Mostly food. 2y
TommieMarie74 This is good to know. We have two Dollar Trees where I live. I‘ll have to scope them both out and see who has the best selection. Thanks!! 2y

I love that everything wrapped up neatly and the intrigues brought to light at last. Quite a bit happened in this book and there were some new characters as well as revelations of old ones. The girls make their choices and grow into the women they have been training towards for the past two years. I‘m a little unsure of the ending (I won‘t say what or why as it would spoil). The story was super fun and made me laugh out loud quite a few times.

The final book in the Finishing School series was much more action packed than the others. It wrapped the story up nicely.

What I don't understand is that this edition gas a preview of the first book at the end... why not put a preview of the Parasol Protectorate in there. 🤔

Finished this series off in my car. Once again Carriger doesn‘t disappoint. The girls were brilliant and as always the world is seamless. I loved this series so much and can‘t wait to read more of her books.

That moment when you are in a book shop and find a book from a favourite series and you can't remember if you have read it or not... Day saved by Partner's smartphone used to access my Goodreads.

Verity I really do @batsy they're like a Blyton boarding school mixed with an Agatha Christie. Lots of fun. And a lot more diverse than either Blyton or Christie. 2y

Verity This is the 🇺🇸 title I think. (edited) 2y
batsy @Verity Ah, thank you for that! I hate it when publishers do that... I've never quite understood why. The UK version is what I've seen in the stores here. And I much prefer the UK title! 2y
Verity I like the UK titles better too @batsy and the covers as well. They're just so graphic and of the era. 2y

I loved this series so much! This is the 4th and final book, and though I'm sad to see it end, I'm glad there's more by this author in this universe... just picked up the first 3 books in the next series in the "Parasolverse!" Steampunk, kickass ladies, intricate conspiracies, supernaturals, and romance with a healthy dollop of humor. J'adore!
