Very good! Strong female characters. Great adventure at sea. Am now looking forward to reading book 3 in the Montague Siblings series.

Loved the historical notes at the end of the book.

Felicity Montague wants nothing more than to become a doctor. She desperately wants to enroll in medical school. Then an old friend of hers is getting married to a doctor she idolizes. So Felicity travels to Stuttgart in order to make a connection with the renowned doctor. A mysterious young woman travels with Felicity disguised as her maid. Felicity soon becomes part of a perilous quest that leads them all over Germany and beyond.

Cortg My kiddo and I were just talking about when the next book would be published. Looks like later this year! I loved this one :) 9mo

1st and probably only book completed for the #20in4 #Readathon since I am inundated with dogs this weekend.

@Andrew65

A feminist adventure with medicine, pirates, and sea creatures. This was a re-read for me in anticipation of the third Montague Siblings book that was just released. Felicity is one of the best written asexual characters.

Andrew65 Well done 👏👏👏 9mo

The Montague Siblings always manage to find the action. Felicity is out to become a doctor, despite England's refusal to let women go to school or practice medicine. So, she invites herself to a friend's wedding to meet her hero. Well, that leads her and her brother into all sorts of trouble, including dragons and pirates, not to mention bad men.

Entertaining.

For me, March is the easiest time for me to knock out audio books at work. So when I remembered this, I immediately put my hoopla app to good use 😊

Finally finished #GideontheNinth, also finished my audio reread of the #HisFairAssassin books by finally knocking out #IgnitingDarkness, reacquainted myself with my fav movie #PansLabyrinth with its book version, and I'm currently listening to the tagged book. Up next is #TheLostApothecary

I don't know if it's just my recent mood or what, but I can't get into this one. I really enjoyed The Gentleman's Guide, but after about a third of this one, I'm gonna set it down. If I'd bought it, I'd probably soldier on and try to finish, but since it's a borrow, I don't feel compelled to finish it.

Vansa It's a TERRIBLE book. It reads like a bunch of characters popping up to spout feminist empowerment slogans, with no plot and no character development. Huge disappointment after the previous book which is genuinely fun and moving in parts. 12mo

I was not keen on Felicity's character development (which was nil) in the first Montague Siblings book but this one really impressed me. Gone was the “I'm right and you need to just realise that“ undercurrent that turned me off her in the first book. She is abrupt because she is awkward and has no idea how to act in polite female company and the inside line to her thoughts and psyche made her hard exterior all the more appealing.
4/5 Stars

Second in the Montague sibling trilogy, Lady‘s Guide follows Felicity in her journey to become a doctor, unfortunately things don‘t go as planned, once again. She teams up with her childhood best friend, Joanna, and Sim, the daughter of a pirate king 🏴‍☠️ to take down her former idol before he could ruin the greatest secret of the age. Monty and Percy are there too.

When prejudiced men tell Felicity Montague that she won‘t be allowed to study medicine, what else is she to do but join up with a pirate to find someone willing to teach her?

In a story about one woman chasing after her dream, we see amazing female friendships, ace/aro rep, and different ways of being a woman that are all considered valid.

Although there was a bit too much deus ex machina going on with people popping in when needed. 🌕🌕🌕🌕🌑

ozma.of.oz And look, I understand that Mackenzi Lee is a pretty well established author, but please someone give this woman an additional job as a casting director for audiobooks. Because, good grief the narrators for both of her books that I‘ve listened to are so forking brilliant and perfect I want to cry. 2y
AlaMich I haven‘t listened to this one yet, but the narrator for Gentleman was amazing! 2y

Celebration part 2! Youngest sister‘s second COVID test has come back negative!

Of course, while we were waiting on that, two of the middle sister‘s pharmacists that she works with have gone in for their own tests. So now we get to wait for those results to come in. 🤞🏻

As an addendum, if your physical and mental health allow, wear your goddamned mask when you‘re in public. 😷

Felicity is one of my favorite characters I‘ve hung out with this year!

A Moment I loved:

Felicity watches her traveling companion hold a dagger to a man‘s throat and in her mind explains why she‘s doing it wrong, and what the best angle would be to slice a throat in order to quickly kill and also silence by severing the vocal chords, while at the same time she feels horror at the fact that her companion had a boot knife and would use it.

Kelly_the_Bookish_Sidekick That scene was so good! 💜 2y

Celebration cookies because my youngest sister‘s COVID test came back negative!

Well, the nurses recommend she come back in a week for another test, given that APPARENTLY one can get a false negative if someone is tested pretty quickly after they know they were exposed.

And she was exposed on Thursday. So, good news until next Thursday, I guess? 🤷🏼‍♀️

Loved: feminism, diversity, inclusion, and aro/ace MC. What bugged me: characters just popping up when utterly convenient, repetitive phrases, and the journey was like one stop too long. It dragged for me in the second half, but had a little fun with it.

I have to say I think I loved this installment more than the first. I mean I loved Monty and Percy but even in the first one I really enjoyed Felicity. It was nice to see how Felicity grew from the first book and came into her own through this second adventure. Joanna was a great foil to Felicity and showed that there is more than one way to be empowered as a female. I did this in audio and found the narration fantastic.

1. So many things can make something a 5 ⭐️ read (tagged one from last year). As long as I was completely engrossed, moved, or enthralled in one way or another it earns the 5 ⭐️ from me
2. I do a few rereads a year and usually my rating is the same but I have changed my mind on one or two.

One of my favorite reads (listens) of 2019! I loved Gentlemans guide to Vice and Virtue and the second point was even better. I loved the feminism, strong women characters, and adventure that came with this book. I loved the character development, world building, and some mystery as well! #auldlangreads #favreadof2019 #bookreviews

I simply loved this book. Felicity Montague is such a strong and wonderful heroine. The story was beautifully written and the message was persistent.
I especially enjoyed the author's note that includes information about the roles women played in the medical and scientific field in the eighteenth century.

Not as funny as the first book, but every bit a great adventure. I liked the message of strength looking many different ways, that someone can be "soft" and traditionally feminine and still be strong. I thought that was nice.

I sling my knapsack over my shoulder, rest my weight upon the rope to be certain I won't fall to my death is the plaster is ripped from the wall (well death is rather grand- perhaps fall to my two broken ankles, more accurately). Then I brace my feet against the casements and rescue myself.

What a fun read! Felicity and Percy were my favorite parts of Gentleman‘s Guide - so I was thrilled that this book focused on Felicity. And it says a lot that although we‘ve come far from the time period this is set in, women still have to work harder and do more just to be seen as being equal to men in many fields. There were so many quotes in this that I loved and I saw so much of myself and women I know in Felicity, Johanna, and Sim.

Pirates? Dragons? Bad a** women? What more could you want? Didn‘t quite love this one as much as the first, but I did really really enjoy it! I was glad she brought back Monty & Percy, but didn‘t make them a main part of the story.

Fantastic! Totally different from The Gentleman's Guide, but equal parts amazing and a great sequel. Think a lot less romance, and a lot more laugh-out-loud smashing of the patriarchy. Incredibly well done, with interesting characters and important themes, all wrapped up in historical fiction that feels authentic but still fresh and modern 👏🏽

Really enjoyed this book and the women in it. I like that Lee loosely modeled Felicity, Sim, and Johanna on real women who didn‘t fit the mold and struggled against inequality in their respective fields.

Felicity and her companions were flawed, scared, brave, determined, and true to themselves. Loved seeing her interact with Monty and Percy. Even at the end, the women stayed true to themselves, and were determined to live on their own terms.
