Title: The Gentleman's Guide to Vice and Virtue by Mackenzi Lee

Book Beginnings:
On the morning we are to leave for our Grand Tour of the Continent, I wake in bed beside Percy.
Friday 56:
Lots of boys mess around at that age, I can still hear my father saying it, and it feels like a kick in the teeth every time.
Comments: Set in the late 1700s, Henry "Monty" is being given one last chance to straighten up and fly right by his father who will disinherit him if he continues messing around with boys, drinking, and other forms of cavorting around. The problem is that Monty is in love with his best friend, Percy. There is quite a bit of chatter on the blogosphere about this YA book and I see why. I read half of it today and it is 530 pages long.

  5. It's not one I would normally pick up, but it sounds quite good!
    I had to fix your link, it was your blog title and not a url. :-) Happy weekend!

  6. I've seen this book on a few blogs but didn't know anything about it. As much of a contemporary reader as I've become, this sounds incredibly intriguing. Happy reading!

  7. I started this one but didn't finish it. I disliked Henry because he seemed to aimless. This week I have Just Friends by Tiffany Pitcock. Happy reading!

    1. I thought the same thing in the beginning, but starts to mature and gains self-awareness.
