"Waiting On" Wednesday #165: Waistcoats & Weaponry by Gail Carriger!

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

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

Publication date:
November 4th, 2014

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.
Gather your poison, steel tipped quill, and the rest of your school supplies and join Mademoiselle Geraldine's proper young killing machines in the third rousing installment in the New York Times bestselling Finishing School Series by steampunk author, Gail Carriger.

I love Gail Carriger's steampunk world, as well as her hilarious & charming characters, and I can't wait to get my hands on a copy of Waistcoats & Weaponry. I wanted to read this one even before I read Curtsies & Conspiracies, especially because having read her Parasol Protectorate series, I know what the plot is, and I'd love to see how it will be discovered, (though I now know who will do the discovering), and on top of that, seeing Conall Maccon - yes, please!
But, after reading the awesomeness that's the 2nd Finishing School book Curtsies & Conspiracies, now I'm dying to read this book, I'm so excited & can't wait!!!

What are you waiting for this week?
