Curtsies & Conspiracies (Finishing School, #2) by Gail Carriger

It took me a while to get back into the world and the characters, but goodness I love them so much. Dimity was so pretty and chattery, she quite overpowered the average male.

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.


Well, she doesn’t get that ending, but at least she might be out of the picture. But how much danger will she find herself in?

I don’t think that’s a good idea at all. I do miss seeing a man’s calves. Also, more love from Parasol Protectorate which just makes me fangirl so hard every time I see a character cross over! Well, fun ending with Monique.

We need to clone Gail Carriger so we can read more about the delightful world she has created. The steampunk setting can best be described as “twee. In terms of language use in steampunk, Gail It would appear that Gail Carriger gets even more bold and hilarious with each new book she writes.

I loved watching her, and her friends evolve into older, more finished people. That was the quandary. And Sophronia seems just as much a Mary-Sue in this book as she did in the last one. And could one legitimately ascribe nefarious conspuracies to any many with a full beard as a result? In terms of language use in steampunk, Gail Carriger is, I dare say, the best. Those minute details, I remember.


He was getting familiar. I can say with certainty, her narration xurtsies causes me to enjoy this series far more than if I read them. The characters are a parody of British high society, complete with utterly ludicrous names, like the previously mentioned Lord Dingleproops, Professor Shrimpdittle, or else absurdly apostrophed names, like Miss Plumleigh-Teignmott.

We have classes on “drawing room music and subversive petit fours,” “Hive and pack dynamics as part of the modern xurtsies system,” “rapid walking in full skirts,” “tea and delusions,” “portion allotment, puddings, and preemptive poisonings. I can’t give you a summary for this book because I’m not quite sure what I just read. Soap is one of my favorite characters. And how many ways do you know to kill me, while we dance?

Chrtsies don’t know what the mystery is, neither do I know how the plot was resolved. She had not yet received lessons in seduction, or she might have understood the appeal of sharp confidence, a topping figure, and green eyes.

D it’s well worth the money and the time.
