“What’s a man like down there?”“Oh.” Sidheag wrinkled her nose. “Unimpressive. They have,” she gestured toward her own nether regions with one hand, “a sort of dangly sausage—lacks tailoring.”Brilliant description, brilliant!If ever there was an enjoyable book featuring a Mary Sue of a heroine, this is it. Despite my rating, I liked reading this book, because it was a funny, quick, fast, very light read. My main problem: that's just it. There is absolutely zero complexity in [...]

UPDATE REVIEWOLD: I'll probably be ambushed and hanged for saying this, but I kinda liked the "rake-in-training" from the other school. He was an intriguing character and I don't know why, it looked to me like Sophronia wasn't too oblivious to his charms (the descriptions from her point of view kinda imply that she thought he wasn't too bad (big underestimation here, girls)). In comparison with Soap it’s just dunno… like they are just plain friends, with no romantic feelings involved between [...]

This remains a bizarrely entertaining series. Sidheag has become my favorite character, besides Soap and Bumbersnoot. Quite a bit more action in this installment, and it's nice to know that (view spoiler)[Monique won't be back at school in the next book (hide spoiler)]. I got a bit lost near the end, when Sophronia and Sidheag went to retrieve Dimity and Pillover, but things got back on track without too much trouble. Who knew vampires + werewolves + technology could be so confusing? ME. Still a [...]

5 Words: Science, fantasy, plotting, school, tea.There's something about Gail Carriger's steampunk world that I can't get enough of. In fact, it's not just something. It's everything. I freaking love it all.With each book I fall even more in love.I loved finding out even more about the characters I love. And that was a fantastic introduction to Lord Akeldama, the only thing this serious had been missing was that crazy teapot.

It would appear that Gail Carriger gets even more bold and hilarious with each new book she writes. Curtsies & Conspiracies is her most enjoyable work since Soulless, her debut, and it is by far the most outrageous and ridiculous thing I’ve read in a very long time. By far the best thing about Carriger’s books is the language. As a non native speaker, I get to learn so many phrases and expressions, most of them outdated, but endlessly entertaining. In terms of language use in steampunk, [...]

Curtsies & Conspiracies is an excellent sequel to Etiquette & Espionage and theFinishing School series is quickly becoming one of my favourite fun YA series to read and Gail Carriger is now my favourite steampunk writer. I Can't wait to read more about Sophronia's madcap adventure and mischief at Mademoiselle Geraldine's Finishing Academy for Young Ladies of Quality.

Book 2 of a new series by Gail Carriger. I've downloaded the audio book and listened to this on my road trip to North Carolina. I love Gail's books - they are funny and smart and quirky, and the characters are proactive and intelligent and willing to do what it takes to help their friends. I loved the inclusion of a few characters from her Parasol Protectorate series, who I miss! The actress who reads these books is perfect. I can't read one of Gail's books because I'm not as good as the reader [...]

This series is just a lot of fun, and even better in audio, performed by Moira Quirk. She handles the silly names and bizarre situations with the formality required for any proper lady. I was reminded of this series and the rest of Gail Carriger's series that I've started and not finished when I talked to Rose Davis on the Reading Envy Podcast - she had just listened to the first book of the newest series, Prudence, and when I knew I was going to spend half the day in the car driving to and from [...]

"Our biggest concern is what you get up to when we are not watching. Because, if nothing else, this test has told us you are probably spying on us, as well as everyone around you."Ah Gail Carriger has done it again! I like this series even more that The Parasol protectorate; it's so funny and cleverd I must admit, quite refreshing. Also I have the cutest ship ever *cough* Soap *cough*After her first tests at finishing school Sophronia, since her friends are acting weird, decides to take matter i [...]

Probably the most disappointing aspect of Curtsies & Conspiracies is the writing. Gail Carriger is the author of an adult steampunk series and the first book in this series, Etiquette & Espionage, suffered from no such problems (or diminished ones, at any rate). Therefore, the jarring leaps between limited 3rd-person POV and omniscient, the awkward dialogue tags and the telling rather than showing make for an unsatisfactory, bumpy read.This is especially evident in contrast with the voic [...]

WHAT IS IT ABOUT?Gail Carriger’s “Curtsies & Conspiracies” is the second book in the young adult fantasy series Finishing School. It’s Sophronia’s second semester at Mademoiselle Geraldine’s Finishing Academy for Young Ladies of Quality where she is being trained on etiquette, style and… espionage. The 19th century is an era of inventions, and thus the dirigible school is heading towards London to witness a history-changing experiment. But the young ladies at Mademoiselle Geral [...]

I absolutely love the world Gail Carriger has created. The mixture of Victorian manners with paranormal creatures, not to mention a dash of steampunk, completely sucked me in. In Curtsies and Conspiracies, we reunite with Sophronia, who I fell in love with in Etiquette and Espionage. The secondary characters are also awesome, especially Soap, who I'm a little bit totally in love with. We get a new secondary character (well we met him briefly in book one) in Lord Felix Mercer. While I can't say I [...]

13/8/2016Gosh, this series is fun. It took me a while to get back into the world and the characters, but goodness I love them so much. Sophronia is adorably naive about her two love interests while also being incredibly savvy about everything else that's going on. Soap is a complete cinnamon roll and I ship the hell out of it. Add in a cameo from a certain foppish vampire and you've got yourself one hell of a good time. 22/11/2013I think I probably should have reread Etiquette and Espionage befo [...]

Like the first book, this YA book set in the world of the Parasol Protectorate is a fun romp with slightly less sex talk than the Parasol Protectorate books. It still has a bit of romance, but it’s mostly banter in keeping with the age of the girls, with a touch of teenage confusion and angst as regards having feelings for anyone. They’re not books with great depth: the perfect description is a ‘romp’, as many people have said before me.It annoys me that people complain about Sophronia b [...]

Rereading in January 2017, and very happy about this decision.Sophronia is back! I loved watching her, and her friends evolve into older, more finished people. Having loved the Parasol Protectorate, it is wonderful being able to get the background on some of my favorite characters. It was incredibly easy to give this book five stars. The only thing I'm sad about is having to wait for the next book to come out. We need to clone Gail Carriger so we can read more about the delightful world she has [...]

Curtsies and Conspiracies is a fantastic sequel to Etiquette and Espionage and a great continuation to the Finishing School series. It's a light, fast-paced, action driven adventure. I really like Sophronia and her gang of friends. She's a bit Mary-Sue-ish, but I don't mind. The series is very entertaining, interesting, and original. I love it. Highly recommend for some fun reading.

Again- stellar narration by Moira Quirk. I wish I could hear her voice narrating my life as I go about my day to day business. I can say with certainty, her narration style causes me to enjoy this series far more than if I read them.

Tuhle sérii jsem si nehorázně zamilovala. V porovnání s prvním dílem tu bylo trochu víc akce a méně kapitána Nialla. Objevil se tu ale Felix, kterého jsem si zamilovala a doufám, že bude i v dalších dílech. Sorry, Mydloune. 4/5*

Actual rating 4.5 starsThis review was originally posted at freadomlibrary.wordpress/CriticallyPlot – 4.5 out 5 starsThis book was entertaining and hilarious. It’s full of action and fun. Though it had it’s slow parts, it was mysterious and incorporated a lot more steampunk elements. There’s an essence of conspiracies through the plot (as I’m sure you’re not surprised because of the title) but there’s also a little bit more romance than the first. I had a great time reading it.Writ [...]

I recently ripped through Gail Carriger’s steampunk “Parasol Protectorate” series, and I admit that I was a bit hesitant to pick up its Young Adult counterpart (even as a young adult I didn’t read much YA – I was too busy re-reading Lord of the Rings for the 8000th time). But I caved pretty quickly, since the “Finishing School” series takes place in the same world as the adult series, only 25 years earlier. Any uncertainty was quashed in the first book, Etiquette & Espionage, a [...]
