It's 1814. Napoleon is exile on Elba. Europe is in shambles. Britain is at war on four fronts. And Stranje House, a School for Unusual Girls, has become one of Regency England's dark little secrets. The daughters of the beau monde who don't fit high society's constrictive mold are banished to Stranje House to be reformed into marriageable young ladies. Or so their parents think. In truth, Headmistress Emma Stranje, the original unusual girl, has plans for the young ladies--plans that entangle the girls in the dangerous world of spies, diplomacy, and war.

After accidentally setting her father's stables on fire while performing a scientific experiment Miss Georgiana Fitzwilliam is sent to Stranje House. But Georgie has no intention of being turned into a simpering, pudding-headed, marriageable miss. She plans to escape as soon as possible--until she meets Lord Sebastian Wyatt. Thrust together in a desperate mission to invent a new invisible ink for the English war effort, Georgie and Sebastian must find a way to work together without losing their heads--or their hearts... (Summary from Goodreads)

This sounds SO much like Gail Carriger's books which I ADORE! I am really hoping they are a bit similar honestly! A bit steampunk and a bit romantic equaling lovely adventure all around. Plus, who really fits in completely anywhere!? 

What are you waiting on this week?

  3. I really want to read To All the Boys I've Loved Before, but I'm not sure that I'll get to it before the sequel is released. A School for Unusual Girls looks really good! How have I not heard of it before?
