Giveaway: Curtsies & Conspiracies by Gail Carriger

Curtsies & Conspiracies is the second book in the young adult steampunk Finishing School series by Gail Carriger. To mark the release of this book, we are hosting an awesome giveaway, which includes a signed copy! Curtsies & Conspiracies will be released on November 5, 2013 from Little, Brown. Want to know our thoughts on the first book in the Finishing School series, Etiquette & Espionage? Read Michelle’s review here.

One lucky reader will win a copy of Curtsies & Conspiracies signed by Gail Carriger, a tin of Gail’s favorite tea, and a Gail Carriger inspired parasol! This giveaway is courtesy of Little, Brown Books for Young Readers/Hachette Book Group.

About Gail:

New York Times Bestselling Author Gail Carriger writes to cope with being raised in obscurity by an expatriate Brit and an incurable curmudgeon. She escaped small town life and inadvertently acquired several degrees in higher learning, a fondness for cephalopods, and a chronic tea habit.

Her books are urbane fantasies mixed with steampunk comedies of manners. Her debut novel, Soulless, won the ALA’s Alex Award and was nominated for the Compton Crook, Campbell, and Locus Awards. ChangelessBlamelessHeartlessTimelessSoulless Vol. 1 (the manga), Soulless Vol. 2 (the manga of Changeless) were all New York Times Bestsellers. The first in her steampunk Finishing School series for young adults, Etiquette & Espionage, released Feb. 5 2013, was an instant NYT Bestseller. The next book in the Finishing School series, Curtsies & Conspiracies, releases Nov. 5, 2013. The first book in her new adult series, Prudence, will hopefully release in late 2015.

Her other hats (neither pith helmet nor fedora) have included tromping the globe excavating ancient cultures, torturing undergraduates with science, and writing cryptic reviews of YA novels for the Horn Book Guide.

About this Book:

Does one need four fully grown foxgloves for decorating a dinner table for six guests? Or is it six foxgloves to kill four fully grown guests?

Sophronia’s first year at Mademoiselle Geraldine’s Finishing Academy for Young Ladies of Quality has certainly been rousing! For one thing, finishing school is training her to be a spy (won’t Mumsy be surprised?). Furthermore, Sophronia got mixed up in an intrigue over a stolen device and had a cheese pie thrown at her in a most horrid display of poor manners.

Now, as she sneaks around the dirigible school, eavesdropping on the teachers’ quarters and making clandestine climbs to the ship’s boiler room, she learns that there may be more to a school trip to London than is apparent at first. A conspiracy is afoot–one with dire implications for both supernaturals and humans. Sophronia must rely on her training to discover who is behind the dangerous plot-and survive the London Season with a full dance card.

In this sequel to bestselling author Gail Carriger’s YA debut Etiquette & Espionage, class is back in session with more petticoats and poison, tea trays and treason. Gail’s distinctive voice, signature humor, and lush steampunk setting are sure to be the height of fashion this season.

    That’s a really hard question… I love tea. Not a big fan of herbals typically (although there’s something a local store called blue tea that’s yummy). Love chai, strawberry green tea, English breakfast.

    Favourite tea??? That is such a difficult one, my cupboard in my shared flat has a shelf dedicated to tea! I think my favourite is Taylors of Harrogate, China Rose Petal Loose Leaf tea, but I also do love a proper Yorkshire brew!

    I love herbal teas. Peppermint is my favorite throughout the day, and chamomile is my favorite in the evening.
