2/5⭐ Much the same as the previous books: entertaining and frustrating at the same time. It was definitely a good idea to move the setting outside of the school to keep things fresh. Pillover is great and not showcased nearly enough.
I genuinely don't understand why Sophronia ever entertained Felix as a romantic interest. All of their interactions boiled down to:
Felix: *does something pompous*
Sophronia: “Damn he's adorable.“
Not my favorite of the series. As I've said before I don't enjoy love triangles. This book seemed to be more of a placeholder -a way for the story to move along- without having too much of a plot of its own. Not to say I think you can skip this book as it does have a surplus of character development.
“One never knows when one might need to hide or distract; décolletage is good for both.”
How very true.
Another early morning appointment in town, I walked past the brewery and took a picture of the ✅statue (above the bingo chart) in front of it. I like the tree and old building much more.
Quite frankly, these bingo prompts make me look at my town with different eyes.
Also, started the #24B4Monday #readathon on my #audiowalk.
One of the narrow streets in the old part of town. I managed to parallel park in one of these streets last night, and my car is not a Beetle/Bug.
Also, the gable of the house I showed last night.
I'm filing this under ✅ Number - it us a street sign, in a way. It's for firefighters, water board road works. The red sign informs where the next underground pipe for water access is. The blue might not only point out fresh water but also sewer location.
Busy day, but got several walks in. Sharing the #LitsyWalkersBingo one.
✅ Shoes - my son added his foot. So basically you can "see" my customary pair of sneakers, plus my new pair that my son is breaking in for me. ?
@Cinfhen yes. They came in yesterday but I didn‘t get them opened until this morning. I can now continue the series. yeah. Oh and a funny. The biggest package held the littlest item. Had to check the envelope which was as long as my arm to find the pins. i love them both. Thank you.
Finishing School, book three.
Sophronia is back at finishing school, where the lessons in weaponry and comportment continue, with the addition of seduction techniques for spies. When her friend Sidheag gets a troubling letter, Sophronia and her cohorts sneak onto a train to help Sidheag get back to her werewolf clan in Scotland. Of course, the train leads them into danger and Sophronia once again finds herself caught up in a devious plot.
I am absolutely loving following Sophronia through etiquette/spy school. We are now in her second year, where she is as close as ever to her best friend Dimity. They are at a ball celebrating Sophronia's brother's engagement when their Scottish friend Sidheag shows up... She's in distress over the state of affairs with her werewolf pack. The girls pack up their contraband air dinghy and drift away with the self-assured Lord Mersey ⬇⬇
This series just keeps getting better and better!! As the girls get older they are faced with more difficult choices. Their loyalties are questioned and they start to actually think for themselves. As they start to piece together the plots that have been going on since the first book they realize just how little they know and they must all make a choice as to who they‘re going to side with. They are passing from childhood into adulthood.
I had the hardest time going back to finishing school. The only reason why I am giving it a so-so, still enjoyed this book, just took a while to finish.
Class is back in session for Sophronia and her friends. Of course she discovers a plot that threatens everyone she cares about. Gather your poisons and steel-quipped quill the ladies of Mademoiselle Geraldine's are back!
