    Gail Carriger’s best-selling Parasol Protectorate series reimagines Victorian England with vampires, werewolves, and a dash of steampunk. Blameless is the third in the series starring the parasol-wielding Lady Alexia Maccon, formerly Alexia Tarabotti. After news spreads of her delicate condition—a surprise to everyone since she’s married to a werewolf—Alexia is desperate to escape the London gossip. So she heads to Italy for a change of scenery.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Great Fun ! Love the fact the heroine is lauded for her bodacious-ness instead of being "rail-thin"...

    But also a fun story. Part animal story, part mystery, part lusty romance.

    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

  • Lessons from Madame Chic: 20 Stylish Secrets I Learned While Living in Paris

    Each chapter of Lessons from Madame Chic reveals a valuable secret Jennifer learned in Paris - tips you can incorporate into your own life, no matter where you live or the size of your budget. Embracing the classically French aesthetic of quality over quantity, aspiring Parisiennes will learn to master the art of eating (deprive yourself not), dressing (the 10-item wardrobe), grooming (le no-makeup look), and living à la française.

    Bohemian Bon Vivant says: "Pretentious Beyond Belief"

    Would you try another book from Jennifer L. Scott and/or Amy Rubinate?

    No !


    What didn’t you like about Amy Rubinate’s performance?

    Her tone of voice was condescending and preachy.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Irritation. Really - you didn't know 90% of these lessons before Paris? Makes me wonder if the author EVER looked outside herself - are maybe she was a "late bloomer" and hasn't left "being the center of the Universe" yet....

    Fourteen-year old Sophronia is the bane of her mother's existence. More interested in dismantling clocks and climbing trees than proper etiquette at tea - and god forbid anyone see her atrocious curtsy - Mrs. Temminnick is desperate her daughter become a proper lady. She enrolls Sophronia in Mademoiselle Geraldine's Finishing Academy for Young Ladies of Quality.

    But little do Sophronia or her mother know that this is a school where ingenious young girls learn to finish all right - but it's a different kind of finishing.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Rolicking Good Story ! Love the connections between this and the Parasol Protectorate series - while in the same universe - did not over-rely on already told stories.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Finishing School for Spies.


    Have you listened to any of Moira Quirk’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I would have preferred Emily Gray but Moira did a very fine job.

    The Industrial Revolution has escalated into all-out warfare. Sixteen years have passed since the Heterodyne Boys, benevolent adventurers and inventors, disappeared under mysterious circumstances. Today, Europe is ruled by the Sparks, dynasties of mad scientists ruling over - and terrorizing - the hapless population with their bizarre inventions and unchecked power, while the downtrodden dream of the Heterodynes’ return. At Transylvania Polygnostic University, a pretty, young student named Agatha Clay seems to have nothing but bad luck.

    Story

    When 15-year-old Clary Fray heads out to the Pandemonium Club in New York City, she hardly expects to witness a murder - much less a murder committed by three teenagers covered with strange tattoos and brandishing bizarre weapons. Then the body disappears into thin air. It's hard to call the police when the murderers are invisible to everyone else and when there is nothing, not even a smear of blood, to show that a boy has died. Or was he a boy?

    Teddy says: "2 Stars because it actually gets worse...."
    "Meh. Clockwork Angel MUCH better story & character"

    Story
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    I have to give that a 50/50. I was anxious to read this series as the Clockwork Angel and Clockwork Prince were excelled. But this is VERY teenage - and that is who it is aimed at. I guess I was expecting more like the Clockwork series which has much more appeal to adult readers.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Cassandra Clare? Why or why not?

    Can hardly wait until the Clockwork Princess comes out. Don't know if I will read more of the mortal instruments.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Ari Graynor’s performances?

    Would prefer not too. Her narration is very monotone to me.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    No.

    If you could sum up The Clockwork Prince in three words, what would they be?

    Rolicking good mystery story with enough action balanced with story to keep the story fresh and interesting


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Ed Westwick and Heather Lind ?

    I thought Heather Lind - unfortunately - I dreaded every time she began to narrate. I don't like to
