A blog for all my reviews, rants, thoughts, and whatnots. Well, yeah, pretty much. Also, there will be random posts about movies, music, and other mundane stuffs like that. But this will be mostly me blabbering, ranting, and gushing about my latest read. So, if you are one who finds bliss in sipping a cup of tea while reading a book on a rainy day such as myself, then by all means, read on! :)

Blameless (The Parasol Protectorate #2) by Gail Carriger

THE BLURB:
Quitting her husband's house and moving back in with her horrible family, Lady Maccon becomes the scandal of the London season.
Queen Victoria dismisses her from the Shadow Council, and the only person who can explain anything, Lord Akeldama, unexpectedly leaves town. To top it all off, Alexia is attacked by homicidal mechanical ladybugs, indicating, as only ladybugs can, the fact that all of London's vampires are now very much interested in seeing Alexia quite thoroughly dead.
While Lord Maccon elects to get progressively more inebriated and Professor Lyall desperately tries to hold the Woolsey werewolf pack together, Alexia flees England for Italy in search of the mysterious Templars. Only they know enough about the preternatural to explain her increasingly inconvenient condition, but they may be worse than the vampires -- and they're armed with pesto.


The Review:

This book proves to be as intoxicating, as entertaining, and as humorous as the previous installments of this series. I enjoyed the story verra much that I was never bored reading it, honestly speaking. And yes, this series is one of my favorite series of all times---it is that good, I assure you. :)

  2. Yeah, the quirky writing style is amazing, as well as the book's plot and characters. I totally love Alexia Maccon, though my fave character in this series is Ivy Hisselpenny. Those outrageous hats! :D
