The Lady’s Guide to Petticoats and Piracy by Mackenzi Lee (ARC Review)

🌟4 stars 🌟

I was so excited when I won this ARC in an Instagram giveaway from Katherine Tegen Books! Now that I’ve finished The Lady’s Guide to Petticoats and Piracy, I’ve been oscillating between 4/4.5 star rating before settling on 4 stars, because I was engrossed in the book while reading it, but it wasn’t one that left me thinking about it for days afterwards. Although not as action-packed as The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue, this was still a fun read. This review will contain minor spoilers for The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue.

I think this book would be great for people who enjoy:

  • Strong Female Protagonists
  • Historical Fiction
  • Girl Gangs
  • Minority Representation

Down the TBR Hole #3

Down the TBR Hole was created by Lost in a Story. Its purpose is to help narrow down your TBR list on Goodreads by selecting 5 titles each week and deciding if you want to keep it on your TBR or get rid of it! I saw this on A Court of Crowns and Quills and thought it would be a great idea since my Goodreads TBR is WAY TOO LONG!

Here’s how it works:

  • Go to your goodreads to-read shelf.
  • Order on ascending date added.
  • Take the first 5 (or 10 if you’re feeling adventurous) books
  • Read the synopses of the books
  • Decide: keep it or should it go?

First Line Friday #1

Wow a third post this week? Who am I?

Also, I know I know! It’s first lines, but I felt like the rest would give it away!

First Lines Fridays is a weekly feature for book lovers hosted by Wandering Words. What if instead of judging a book by its cover, its author or its prestige, we judged it by its opening lines?

  • Pick a book off your shelf (it could be your current read or on your TBR) and open to the first page
  • Copy the first few lines, but don’t give anything else about the book away just yet – you need to hook the reader first
  • Finally… reveal the book!
