Waiting on Wednesday: Manners and Mutiny by Gail Carriger

A weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine

Title: Manners and Mutiny
Series: Finishing School #4
Author: Gail Carriger
Published: November 3, 2015 by Little, Brown Books for Young Readers

Synopsis: 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!

Why I'm Waiting 

This November is all about series conclusions, amiright? (cough cough Winter cough). But the ending of the Finishing School series also comes out then. I marathoned the first three books in this series last fall and was blown away by how creative the world building was. Nobody does steampunk like Gail Carriger (I say this having yet to read her first series even though it's been on my TBR list for ages). But it's also a really fun series that is full of quirky characters, humor, and tons of actions. I liked the first two books but by the time I got to the third book in the series I was so hooked that the book gave me unexpected feels.

And so after those feels, I knew I desperately needed the final book in the series. The synopsis doesn't give us much to go on but I know it's going to be just as fun and engaging. The Pickleman plot finally coming into fruition? Sophronia saving the day? Finding out about what happens to Soap? I cannot wait to read this book!

What about you? What are you waiting for this Wednesday? Are you waiting for Manners and Mutiny with me? Leave me a comment with your thoughts. Thanks for stopping by and HAPPY READING!

  5. For some reason I thought these looked cutesy when I first saw them, but since all I've seen is people talking about how clever and badass and amazing they are. So clearly I need to read them. Someday. When I have time to sleep.
