You know.....if there are infinite universes with infinite possibilities, then there exists a version of me that’s a part of a science girl gang on a pirate expedition to save sea monsters, and one day, I will consume enough caffeine to vibrate my molecules at a frequency that allows me to pass between realities and retreat into that universe.

So, what's this book about?

Felicity Montague would offer up everything on the altar of sacrifice, so long as she gets to fulfill her dream of studying me

“I don’t know what you’re referencing, madam,” the chairman says, his voice raised over mine.
“I’m talking about menstruation, sir!” I shout in return.
It’s like I set the hall on fire, manifested a venomous snake from thin air, also set that snake on fire, and then threw it at the board. The men all erupt into protestations and a fair number of horrified gasps. I swear one of them actually swoons at the mention of womanly bleeding.

Her dark eyes meet mine and I look between her and Johanna. In the company of women like this—sharp-edged as raw diamonds but with soft hands and hearts, not strong in spite of anything but powerful because of everything—I feel invincible. Every chink and rut and battering wind has made us tough and brave and impossible to strike down. We are made of mountains—or perhaps temples, with foundations that could outlast time itself.

4 1/2 stars. This was lovely. And I want to reread the whole du

‘you deserve to be here. you deserve to exist. you deserve to take up space in this world of men.’

mackenzie lee is truly doing the lords work. this the feminist story that we may not deserve, but one that we definitely all need. praise be!

although i wasnt as in love with the plot of this book as i was with ‘gentlemans guide,’ this had to be one the best messages i have ever read in a YA story. its so empowering! and the writing was absolutely outstanding. the pacing, the depth, the subtle nuan

It was so good to get back into this series! I loved The Gentleman's Guide to Vice and Virtue (see my review), Mackenzi Lee's first book in this series, and I hadn't realized how much I missed these characters until I began her new book. Once again, I am so taken by the originality of her ideas, and the way she makes books set in the 18th century feel so modern.

This contains such a delightful mixture of feminist rage and pastry appreciation that I am LIVING. It had a lot to live up to with The Gentleman's Guide To Vice And Virtue being like one of my all time favourite books...and ok, sure, it didn't quite live up to it (for reasons I'll mention later) but I still had a marvellous good time reading this. The 3 featured women were the actual best ever. And the ending just was !!! I am so warm and fuzzy right now !!! Also there were dragons and what can ...more

Last year I had the pleasure to read the first book in this series, The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue. And you know what? It made it to my list of best books I read in 2017. And now, here we are, getting Felicity's side of the story and it was both wonderful and slightly disappointing.

The amount of research and dedication that it must have taken Mackenzi Lee to make this book so historically accurate is honestly astounding. There are so many conversations on medicine and just general life

I have been so looking forward to Felicity’s story! All my favorite qualities of Felicity are here… her sass, her independence, her refusal to bend to the whims and expectations of men, despite the damning social norms of the time period. Mackenzi Lee really shines as a historical writer. You can tell this is her field. Felicity fights to practice medicine when no one will let her and takes the world by the nether regions.

I will confess that I liked “The Gentleman’s Guide…” a teensy bit more sim

This was such a delight to read. Having adored The Gentlemen’s Guide to Vice and Virtue, I wasn’t sure how this would match up but I loved it just as much (if not slightly more?) It’s packed with action, friendship and strong, multilayered women.

The main aspect of this novel I loved so much was the narrative surrounding Felicity, Johanna and Sim. I adored how different each of them were but how they were all portrayed as equally strong, just in different ways. You have Felicity who’s very goal o

OHHHH MYYY GODDDD!

WARNING: SPOILERS.. MAYBE? PROBABLY. READ AT YOUR OWN RISK PEOPLE!

The Lady's Guide to Petticoats and Piracy had a slow start. It also gave me an annoying character and lots of men to hate. Oh the views of these men.. I just wanted to dick punch them because they are not worthy of the women in their lives. Unfortunately, most men still have the same view as them today. I don't want to get into it.. but if you listen to or have read this book.. you'll totally understand.

Oh, I loved this one! Even though I did love Monty and Percy in the first book, Felicity already secured herself a very special spot in my heart during The Gentleman's Guide to Vice and Virtue, and I was beyond excited that there was to be a story with her as the main protagonist. While I enjoyed the first book quite a lot, the story became somewhat too "wild" for my taste. So, I have to say that I liked this instalment even more than the first one.
