Review: Waistcoats & Weaponry by Gail Carriger

Waistcoats & Weaponry by Gail Carriger
(Finishing School #3)

Genres: Young Adult, Historical Fiction, Paranormal, Steampunk

Class is back in session...

Sophronia continues her second year at finishing school in style--with a steel-bladed fan secreted in the folds of her ball gown, of course. Such a fashionable choice of weapon comes in handy when Sophronia, her best friend Dimity, sweet sootie Soap, and the charming Lord Felix Mersey stowaway on a train to return their classmate Sidheag to her werewolf pack in Scotland. No one suspected what--or who--they would find aboard that suspiciously empty train. Sophronia uncovers a plot that threatens to throw all of London into chaos and she must decide where her loyalties lie, once and for all.
  Okay, y'all. With the first two books in the Finishing School series, I was already sold. But Waistcoats & Weaponry absolutely just blew me away. It was so amazing. I didn't think it could get any better, but Gail Carriger has proved me wrong!

***Spoiler Warning***
  Oh my goodness. The train was such an adventure! I loved seeing everyone work together. All along I've been Team Soap, so I was so glad to see that he wound up in this book in the way that he did. Sophornia and Soap are my OTP, and the ending of this book had me on tense with tears in my eyes. I cannot believe Soap got turned! It was a crazy twist that I didn't see coming, but I loved! The dynamic will surely shift between Sophornia and Soap now, and I can't wait to see how things go from here!

  I am without a doubt addicted to these books. There is so much going for this series. The wit, the personalities, just everything! I'm already ready for book four to be in my hands. Finishing School is one of those series that you miss as soon as you finish the last page and immediately start going crazy to get the next book. I have so much love for it. I don't care what genres you usually read; branch out and read Finishing School. It's a MUST!

**I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review with no compensation.


  1. Yes to everything in your spoiler alert! I was so surprised by that! I can't wait for the next one and find out how they go on from here!! Loved this one!

  2. I didn't love this series until this book. It was such an adventure and I found myself really entertained and sobbing at that moment! I'm so excited for the last book now.
