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.

Finally reading this one! I loved the first one and got sidetracked from reading #2. I was overall disappointed with The Historian, so I‘m hoping this is good.

This is amazing 😍 You've probably heard great things about The Gentleman's Guide to Vice and Virtue, but this sequel is even better! Felicity Montague is courageous and witty, intelligent and flawed - an absolute hero!

CarolynM I really enjoyed the first one. 1mo
Sarz @CarolynM I think you should give this one a go. It's so good! 1mo

Big recommend, and second book I've gotten through for pride month (ace, gay and lesbian rep) I love Felicity and the way she navigates her understandings of her 'place' and how to circumvent the odds stacked against her.

It's fitting that I finished this at the beach today. Thankfully I didn't encounter any pirates or sea dragons in the process 🐉 This book is exactly what I expected and wanted it to be: a fun, female-centric adventure. It's refreshing to read #YA that isn't even peripherally about romantic relationships. I knew Felicity would be an interesting protagonist, but Monty still makes me laugh out loud.

I liked this even better than the first book! Felicity Montague reminded me of Hermione Granger. She really wants to be a doctor, she's asexual, there are dragon sea monsters, and there's a queer Muslim girl character (Sim) who I also loved. I really liked how the book investigated how "smart girls" like Felicity can fall into sexism when they associate femininity with a lack of intelligence and the intersections of early science and colonialism.

suzisteffen WOW I want these books! Sounds amazing. 3mo

After reading book 1, I was thrilled to see there was a second book that followed. While Monty had to come to terms with his love life, Felicity has to learn how to be the women she wants while not deeming other women or be defined by men's standards. The feminist in me was happy to read Felicity's story that begins about a year after book 1. With new characters and adventures, I was thoroughly happy with Lee's second novel.

I didn‘t fall head over heels for it like I did for the first one, but this was still a super fun historical romp with strong female voices and tons of lovely representation. The audiobook narrator is fabulous.

ErickaS_Flyleafunfurled I was wondering about this one. I loved the first one so much. May still give it a go. Thanks for the review! 5mo
cariashley @ErickaS_Flyleafunfurled you should! Monty and Percy make a couple of appearances but I missed them, wish they were in it more. There are some fun new characters though. 5mo

I love this author. The time period feels genuine (except for the progressive characters but THATS THE POINT), and Felicity, the main character, is so feisty and tired of men‘s bullsh*t. The narrator is good too. #youngadult

I wasn‘t sure if I was going to read this one but apparently it‘s about a month overdue and other people want to read it... so I‘d feel bad not trying after all of THAT.

These books make me ponder how gay men are often left out of the talk of “own stories” and how differently gay men write about themselves than when women write stories about them. I‘m sure someone smarter than me has talked about this already though.

I enjoyed the second installation of this series far more than I did the first one... while that one was good, this one had more elements of fun and adventure in the mix. We follow Felicity, one year after the first book ends, as she is still trying to apply to medical schools. As we all know, she is a woman, so she is deemed inferior... but she mixes things up when she falls into the center of a mystery and tries to further prove her worth. 4🌟

I always love the deconstruction of the “I‘m not like other girls” idea, especially in historical fiction and even more when it‘s as fun as this. Monty‘s tea cosy hat holds a special place in my heart as someone who knits.

I quite enjoyed this one! I did most of it on audio and Moira Quirk was a wonderful narrator. I wasn‘t sure what to expect after reading Mackenzi Lee‘s first book but this one didn‘t disappoint. I loved how strong willed Felicity was and I‘m glad there was still a bit of Monty and Percy. I hope there‘s another book in the works! 🌟🌟🌟🌟

4.5/5⭐ The feminist manifesto we all need and deserve. I loved the characters, the adventure, the themes. Monty is a trip. Felicity's, Sim's, and Johanna's complex and evolving relationships with each other, along with their own character growths, are the heart of what makes this book so utterly wonderful. I hope Lee writes more in this series, because her characters are a delight to follow. #projectSAMS

hissingpotatoes Oh, and Monty and Felicity's sibling relationship is the absolute perfect mix of snark and heartwarming. Their banter but also their unwavering support of each other is goals. I was there for it every step of the way. 7mo

Everyone has heard stories of women like us—cautionary tales, morality plays, warnings of what will befall you if you are a girl too wild for the world, a girl who asks too many questions or wants too much. If you set off into the world alone. Everyone has heard stories of women like us, and now we will make more of them. #projectSAMS

I read this for the historical fiction category of the #ReadingWomenChallenge. I adore Felicity so I was happy to get more of her story. It took an odd fantasy turn that I wasn‘t expecting about 2/3 of the way through, but still quite fabulous! And Percy and Monty are still up to their old tricks as well :)
