Pairing Books with Tea & Nibbles


Alright, Gentle Reader, this idea came a while ago from a conversation on the Parasol Protectorate Facebook Group. One of the members was plotting gifting her family with books and chocolate. It occurred to me that this would make for a great blog post.

Book News:
Nalini Haynes of Dark Matter Zine says: “Manners & Mutiny is another of Gail Carriger’s highly successful adventure comedy romance steampunk fantasy novels, concluding the Finishing School series with a bang and an excellent roundup of what becomes of the survivors. One of Carriger’s many strengths is to conclude series and begin new series in the same world, keeping her stories fresh. The balance of tension, comedy and romance is fabulous. I’ve been hanging out for the next Custard Protocol book since I finished the last delicious snack; Carriger keeps me wanting more. I highly recommend all her novels.”

Quote of the Day:
“I once got engaged to his daughter Honoria, a ghastly dynamic exhibit who read Nietzsche and had a laugh like waves breaking on a stern and rockbound coast.”
― P.G. Wodehouse
