    Around 2.5 stars.The first thing I noticed when I started this book is that I remember nothing about the last one NOTHING I m really not sure why I keep reading these books Oh, wait That s it Carriger includes all kinds of gadgets and gizmos, and their descriptions are awesome And it s quite funny in a fluffy mindless way Yep I ll probably end up reading the next one as well.As for the book, the love triangle of the last book gets even page time in this one and like all love triangles it s incr [...]

    This is such a fun series Like smile the whole way through and sit back and have fun kind of series From the names of the characters down to the shenanigans they get themselves involved in, it is just plain fun and the series is getting better and better as it goes.This has elements in numerous genres that I simply adore from the paranormal steampunk to the historic side of it and the ragtag bunch of friends is by far the best part of it all.Add in teachers that are almost as mischievous as the [...]

    A pretty fun read Enjoyed the Sidheag Scottish pack plot that was going on, it was better than the transmitter Picklemen arc, which was kind of dull Liked Sophronia s friendships with Dimity Sidheag Agatha, it was best part of the story Her antagonistic relationship with Monique was good too Didn t much like Soap in this one, he was kind of irritating, Felix wasn t much better, he turned out to be a prick I hope Sophronia doesn t end up with either of them Looking forward to the final book to se [...]

    Book 3 in the Finishing School series and I ve been listening to these I m hooked and enjoying them very much if you liked Gail Carriger s Parasol Protectorate series, this is very similar The narrator does an excellent job which is why I ve been listening I wouldn t have the same experience if I read it myself.

    3.75Didn t like it as much as the first two, but these books are always a fun read after all.The Finishing School series is one of my favourite middle grade series That title goes to A Girl who circumnavigated Fairyland in a ship of her own making, but this series is extremely good even in what is, in my opinion, its worst installment Waistcoats and Weaponry is a good book and it s worth four stars for sure, but at the same time I think it pales a little if compared to Etiquette and Espionage Wh [...]

    Fortunately for us, Gail Carriger s sense of humor seems to be as strong and sharp as ever as she keeps providing us with endless entertainment in this well developed world Waltzing with a bladed fan and using longing looks to seduce unsuspecting young evil geniuses are just some of the things our Sophronia has become quite skilled at in her years at Mademoiselle Geraldine s Finishing Academy for Young Ladies of Quality The cast of characters is still as colorful as ever, although it sometimes b [...]

    A delightful confection.I really do enjoy these I did think that the last in the series concentrated a bit heavily on the humor to the detriment of the slightly rambling plot, but this one, I felt, struck the perfect balance.Chaos has struck at the top levels of werewolf society, and Sophronia Temminnick s friend Sideagh wants to be by the side of her Pack This requires running away from Miss Geraldine s Finishing School and of course, her friends are bound to help her.This ends up involving a h [...]

    This series is one I am still hugely enjoying and this book was once again filled to the brim with crazy escapades, funny moments and hilarious characters I loved the way that we saw in to the politics of the world with this story and, although there is some wacky adventure too, discussed some of the rivalries between supernaturals and humans in detail.Can I just say How amazing is the bladed fan on the cover of the book It s so bad ass and it is used in the book to fight off an annoying perso [...]

    5 Words This series just gets better.I just can t bring myself to review this book How can I It was so good Again and again, Gail Carriger exceeds expectations with her books, building the most fantastical worlds.

    Sophronia and the gang are all back and doingwell not very much really I guess the basic premise of this story is Sidheag needs to return to her home in Scotland where the clan of werewolves she calls her family are going to be punished for a supposed plot against Queen Victoria They don t actually get there and in thinking about it, I m not entirely sure that anything actually happened in this book Still, likeable characters and witty banter somehow gloss over the lack of any real substance and [...]

    Check out the original review with added content over at 21st Century Once Upon A Times Sovereign, sovereigns, or seduction, said Sidheag calmly, before Sophronia could stop her.Dimity nodded in agreement It s our second lessons after the school motto Ut acerbus terminus Felix looked confused What does it mean To the bitter end, said Sophronia Return to a world of steel bladed fans and floating dirigibles.As Sophronia continues her second year at Mademoiselle Geraldine s Finishing Academy, the E [...]

    Wow This series has tanked so badly Like crashing and burning tanking The only saving grace for this book was the superb narration by Moira Quirk Quirk s delightful voice and splendid variety of accents make for easy listening Which was good in my case, as the story was horrendous.The main character has become a shell of the vibrant, curious young lady we met in the first book Now she is arrogant, entitled, fickle, and a tease with her young men in the love triangle My god I wanted to shriek by [...]

    Ashley *Hufflepuff Kitten*
    On par with the first two books Lots of action, a bit of a vampire detour on the werewolf trip, and a tedious love triangle I really don t know anyone any that actually enjoys love triangles, do you Overall I liked this one, as I said, as much as the others Moira s narration is fantastic, as always.

    Melissa
    My anger towards this book in the middle half caused me to skim through the latter half what I read only made me angrier My biggest problem with this book is how Gail Carriger, excuse my language, shit on ALL her characters Yes characters change over a year, but I felt like I couldn t recognize any of them They lacked the charm that made me love them and dream of this book and a grown flirty Sophronia I literally cried for the abuse of Felix s character for so many reasons one being HE GOES TO A [...]

    I think it s time to admit that this series just isn t for me The first 2 books were entertaining enough, but this was a frustrating read The first half I didn t care enough that when I set the book down, I felt no need to pick it up again The second half, I was pretty angry with the plot.The problem is that the book is just too sarcastic and glib in a way that makes it hard to care about the characters or the plot at all It s not even that funny It s book 3 and I still feel like I don t know or [...]

    I really love Carriger books of any variety in audio, and they are my go to companions for long drives This book really carries the story forward for the most part it takes place outside of the finishing school and moves the lives of the characters closer to adulthood Career decisions are made, alliances are defined, and romantic entanglements intensify Very fun.

    WHAT IS IT ABOUT Waistcoats Weaponry by Gail Carriger is the third installment in the young adult steampunk series Finishing School Sophronia, now sixteen years old, continues her training in etiquette and espionage at Mademoiselle Geraldine s Finishing Academy for Young Ladies of Quality, a giant floating dirigible school for intelligencers When Sophronia s friend Sidheag receives bad news from home and wants to return to Scotland, Sophronia, her mechanimal Bumbersnoot, Sophronia s best friend [...]

    This was just fan fricking tastic Even though it s been a while since I read Curtsies Conspiracies, it was easy to fall back into the characters and setting without feeling like there was an infodump I highlighted so many great turns of phrase while reading, because Carriger knows how to walk the fine line between humor and prissy Victoriana perfectly.The plot moves quickly, following a werewolf power struggle as well as a massive impromptu mechanicals revolt nothing frightening than a rousing [...]

    Wiebke (1book1review)
    Honestly I can t say what this book was about The story seems to be only about Sophronia discovering her romantic interests.The writing was lovely as usual, but the lack of story makes it rather slow and also I found myself annoyed with Sophronia and her analytical handling of love interests For one I don t think it s about feelings for her, but about what can I gain from a relationship, very rational, which goes along with her training, but feels somewhat weird.Also the way she tried to manipu [...]

    5 Stars This book was by far the best in Gail Carriger s Finishing School series so far I loved Sophronia s character development, and I think we got to see so much emotion from her The language and dialogue is as fun and witty as ever, and honestly this series just keeps getting better and better The final book in this series just became one of my most anticipated reads

    Whenever I m in the mood for something light hearted and fun to read I know I can t go wrong with one of the books in Gail Carriger s Finishing School series These stories are all delightfully whimsical, the characters are great and I can never wait to see what kind of trouble Sophronia finds herself in next She s definitely not your typical young lady but I mean that in the best possible way and I love how independent she is and the way she s always so determined to find out the truth of what s [...]

    Waistcoats Weaponry continues the adventures of Sophronia Temminick and her ragtag group of friends Dimity, Sidheagh, Agatha although not as much in this book , and Bumbersnoot the mechanimal as well as developing further the romantic interest with both her sootie friend Soap and the aristrocratic young Lord Felix Mersey, son of a Pickleman I admit, when I first began reading this series, which begins with Etiquette and Espionage, terms such as sootie, mechanimal, and pickleman would have comple [...]

    9 9 2016This book THIS BOOK It s ridiculously fast paced I read it in like two hours The characters are wonderful I love where Sidheag s story goes and how clearly it starts to set up the Parasol Protectorate series I adore Soap with every fibre of my being Seeing Sophronia s family explains a lot about why she is the way that she is This one is almost a self contained plot in a lot of ways Yes, it s setting up for a finale And yes, I definitely need to reread book 4 pretty much straight away Bu [...]

    I need NOW I love these books and these characters So much fun and snark but still full of emotions The characters make these books worth reading than the plot but they re still very good I highly recommend them

    Sara (Freadom Library)
    That ending was so bittersweet, good thing there s another book left This review was originally posted at freadomlibrary.wordpress CriticallyPlot 4.5 out of 5 starsAs always with this amazing author, this book was entertaining though much action packed than the previous ones It s also a lot serious and intense than the books before it It s fun, mysterious and has elements of romance which I was a huge fan of It sets a lot of things up for the last book as well as the future of the characters.

    Another book in this awesome series I should also really read the Parasol Protectorate series.However there were several things I didn t like, and I will start with those to get them out of my system.For one, I expected school, lessons, boarding school fun Instead we only get a small bit about it and then it is off to balls, stealing trains and I really had hoped for poison lessons, seduction lessons, vampires, climbing to meet with Soap, maybe a few balls with all the other girls includ [...]

    2.75I enjoyed this book well enough, but I didn t like it as much as the previous installment of the series Overall, this story just had far too much love triangle angsty stuff going on, and both Soap and Felix was overly insufferable and possessive.I did like that the ending seems to have resolved this issue, and finally forced Sophronia to deal with feelings she was running away from, but I still felt that far too much of the book focused on the relationship angle.I also missed the various goi [...]
