I just started this today, and I am already sucked in. I love this quirky series.
2/5⭐ The humor and hijinks are entertaining enough, but there's no depth/growth to the characters or plot whatsoever. Sophronia is annoyingly and unrealistically perfect at everything. The two attempts at her character growth feel false because the circumstances surrounding them are forced, the stakes not genuine. The whole ostracism thing was just plain stupid. #bookemon
Warning: Pity Party. Work has been unusually stressful. Although I‘m looking forward to the #OhioMeetup tomorrow I feel very scattered and unprepared. Sunday is my oldest son‘s 6th birthday party which had me running around all week. I‘ve neglected my #LitsyPenPals and haven‘t really had time to just enjoy my Litsy feed. I‘m blessed to have such a full life but I need a break.
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️🎧2019.04.25 I‘m binging this series...love it!
Finished the audiobook in a day. The only thing that detracted from the book from me personally is that I have a dislike of love triangles. I know that pretty common in YA but it's just not my cup of tea. This book nearly hinted at one but I get the feeling that it'll be a bigger deal later in the series. In spite of all of that it was still a really fun read. 🍵
Another fun season at finishing school. Sophronia is up to her usual intrigues, but there are mysteries afoot.
I adore Soap and can‘t wait to see how that develops. And Sidheag is awesome, too.
I did like book one better, a bit, but this is still great. More of the asides from the author, but they‘re integrated a little better than before. Solid 4.5/5 ⭐️

✅Unusual - fossilised skeleton of a woolly rhino. They were found during the building of the second underground tunnel of our town's tiny underground/tram system.
Another doctor's appointment. Blood was drawn, things were discussed. Short walks to and from the tram stops. Now I'm worn out.
Speed walked to the bakery this morning to get fresh croissants and a cheese roll for my daughter's birthday breakfast; then walked by the petrol station to get the cake (shops are closed on Sundays but some petrol stations have groceries).
That piece of cake is for you, Julie. My daughter promised to store it in a very secure place. 😜
One of her presents was a 3D jigsaw puzzle, we built it already.
I could tick off
✅ Green Item
✅ Sun Shine
✅ Red Item
There's also a number on that house in the background. 😜😜😜
Windspeed of 24+mph, lots of fallen branches from the trees along the street.
Apart from my morning walk in the drizzle I also walked at IKEA today, quite a lot actually.
Now I'm sitting at my daughter's dancing class and try to remember what I need to write down on my shopping list for my daughter's birthday party on Sunday.
“Ladies, today we leave off knife fighting and move on to the most useful of all skills.” The werewolf paused dramatically. The young ladies about him inhaled in anticipation. “Running away,” said Captain Niall with a flourish. The faces about him were crestfallen; running away was hardly a romantic pursuit. Except when one was running to Gretna Green." ?????
If you‘re taking part in the #ParasolProtectorate read along, this is the book that‘s up now (as of yesterday, I‘m a little off). This is the second book in the #FinishingSchool series, which comes before the Parasol Protectorate series. There‘s discussion on the Facebook for anyone who‘s interested.
It was enjoyable to be drawn back into Madame Geraldine's Finishing School to follow Sophronia into her next adventure... One where someone is after her best friend Dimity, and Sophronia must figure both why and whom it may be. Lots of fun twists & turns. Plus vampires and werewolves. You can't go wrong 🤗 4🌟
This was an extremely quick read. I was able to listen to it in just a day and a half
Took my first beach day off the season, and I finished this with my toes in the sand. I love Gail Carriger's writing- it's hilarious, well-paced, and features wonderful female characters. This is a great series to dip into. And, it fulfills the Steampunk entry for #Booked2018!

Another great recommendation from @Tiffy_Reads for #freakyfriday ♥️ I love the main characters so much, and may have told my friend to name her new calf Bumblesnoot... 😂 The baby cow ended up being a female, so we went with Posey instead. It goes nicely with Clover, one of the males I named last fall. ♥️
Starting this one on audiobook today. #freakyfriday
