When my co-workers started breathlessly glowing about this book I'll admit I was dubious. I'm not a fan of historical fiction, I don't usually like long books, and I'm picky about my romances. I avoided reading this one for about a year until my store announced we would be hosting Lee for a signing....

I've read some YA books as well as books with queer characters, and historical fiction is among my favorite genres. I've read a few queer YA books and at least one book which might be considered historical YA, but The Gentleman's Guide to Vice and Virtue marks my first queer YA historical novel. And...

I want to reread this sometime soon to see if I can bring my rating up. I enjoyed it a lot, loved a lot of it, but just can't say I fully fell in love with the whole book. It's so great to see this book being mainstream though. And I'm really excited to see Felicity's book next. That should be inter...

This book surprised me in the best way. I thought it would be another fluffy young-adult historical fiction novel that veers off into a jolly romp at the expense of getting the time period and the history right. But Ms. Lee takes her research seriously all while providing colorful, rich characters a...

This ...

Historical fiction is a genre I am most interested to read but have a fear that I might put it down. One week ago, I have heard a lot of good reviews and opinions about The Gentleman's Guide to Vice and Virtue and with an upcoming book discussion and Skype with Mackenzi Lee. Here's some thing I have...

It might be impossible for me to completely sum up why I love this book so much, but I will definitely try. I think this was one of my most anticipated releases this year and there was so much hype surrounding it. I'm so glad it lived up to the hype. This book really shines with the characters. Fr...

I think this may have been the first book I have ever pre-ordered online...I'm so glad I did! After reading rave reviews about its upcoming release and looking for a book while enjoying 'My Lady Jane' (which I loved too), I came across this. It didn't disappoint! Mackenzi has written a wonderful adv...

This historical m-m romance wasn't meant for me: a history buff and gay man who loves sentimental novels.There was very little of historical interest. The characters are launched from one location to another with barely more than a "two weeks later..." thrown in. This is supposed to be the GRAND TOU...
