Yo, awesome book nerds! Can you believe that we’re already in the third week of 2017? Dudes, time does fly by. How are you all doing? Have you read something extraordinarily awesome? Have you got a favourite book of 2017 yet?
For this week’s Waiting on Wednesday, I chose The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue by Mackenzi Lee which sounds absolutely stunning and amazing and cool and badass. If you’ve not heard of this one, I think you should must check it out because it sounds like awesomeness disguised in the form of a book.
Blurb from Goodreads:
Henry “Monty” Montague was born and bred to be a gentleman, but he was never one to be tamed. The finest boarding schools in England and the constant disapproval of his father haven’t been able to curb any of his roguish passions—not for gambling halls, late nights spent with a bottle of spirits, or waking up in the arms of women or men.
But as Monty embarks on his grand tour of Europe, his quest for a life filled with pleasure and vice is in danger of coming to an end. Not only does his father expect him to take over the family’s estate upon his return, but Monty is also nursing an impossible crush on his best friend and traveling companion, Percy.
Still it isn’t in Monty’s nature to give up. Even with his younger sister, Felicity, in tow, he vows to make this yearlong escapade one last hedonistic hurrah and flirt with Percy from Paris to Rome. But when one of Monty’s reckless decisions turns their trip abroad into a harrowing manhunt that spans across Europe, it calls into question everything he knows, including his relationship with the boy he adores.
