Changeless
Changeless | Gail Carriger
Alexia Maccon, the Lady Woolsey, awakens in the wee hours of the mid-afternoon to find her husband, who should be decently asleep like any normal werewolf, yelling at the top of his lungs. Then he disappears; leaving her to deal with a regiment of supernatural soldiers encamped on her doorstep, a plethora of exorcised ghosts, and an angry Queen Victoria.But Alexia is armed with her trusty parasol, the latest fashions, and an arsenal of biting civility. So even when her investigations take her to Scotland, the backwater of ugly waistcoats, she is prepared: upending werewolf pack dynamics as only the soulless can. She might even find time to track down her wayward husband, if she feels like it.CHANGELESS is the second book of the Parasol Protectorate series: a comedy of manners set in Victorian London, full of werewolves, vampires, dirigibles, and tea-drinking.The Parasol ProtectorateSoullessChangelessBlamelessHeartlessTimelessFor more from Gail Carriger, check out:The Custard ProtocolPrudenceImprudenceFinishing School (YA)Etiquette & EspionageCurtsies & ConspiraciesWaistcoats & WeaponryManners & Mutiny

ShyBookOwl @lilistar I really enjoyed book 1. Book 2 is fun so far too. I'm curious about the series after it too. I think it follows her daughter. 3mo
Maria514626 The author‘s imagination. Bonkers! I loved the first one. Need to get back to that series. ❤️ 3mo
ShyBookOwl @Maria514626 Haha it is. In the first one, I felt like I was reading something from the Buffyverse... like... some version of a Victorian-era slayer. Even the humour... it was bizarre in a great way. 3mo

Slow day at work, so I was able to finish this audiobook. Not as much fun as the first book and I‘m a little concerned about how the cliffhanger is going to play out in the next book, but still a fun romp through a steampunk version of Victorian England and Scotland with great characters.

What is wrong with me? I haven‘t finished a book in 10 days. Ten! I‘ve started all but one of these and I‘m enjoying them all, but I just can‘t focus for long, and two of these MUST be read by the end of the month. 😭😭 Does this ever happen to anyone else? I‘m starting to get really stressed about it.

Mitch Oh no.. even the Noir one? I‘d try to finish the skinny ones first, foster a sense of achievement 🤞🏼 7mo
CaliforniaCay This happens to me all the time! I'm always reading multiple books, sometimes it will take me months to finish one because I keep jumping between books. I agree with @Mitch , sometimes it helps to read something short to feel some sense of accomplishment. Or reading poetry to cleanse my palate, or even listening to an audiobook sometimes helps pull me out of my slump. 7mo
Leftcoastzen Yes , reading multiple books , sadly #chunksters. Ahhhhhhhhh, can‘t finish anything!Think I might grab some poetry like @CaliforniaCay to feel a sense of accomplishment finishing something. 7mo

MelissaSue81 I had a rough spell last month where I was only finishing audiobooks. I had a few books that really bogged me down and I some busy weeks. I read a couple shorter books and then ended up finding a couple really good ones that got me out of the slump. 7mo
GingerAntics Henry IV Part 2 is not nearly as engaging as part 1, so I wouldn‘t be too worried about it. It‘s hard for everyone to get through. It could be stressing you out and dragging you down on the rest of your reading. 7mo
LiteraryinLititz I‘ve been in the middle of several books lately too! I totally feel you. 7mo
rretzler This just happened to me, so I feel your pain. Fortunately, I kept reading and did finish one of the three I was reading and then went on to finish four books in five days! Usually, when I‘m in a slump, I just put them aside and start on something that I think I‘ll enjoy a little better but it wasn‘t happening for me at the beginning of the month. Hang in there. I‘m sure it will get better (edited) 7mo
Eyelit Nothing wrong with you! Slumps happen, as frustrating as they are. I hope this passes and you have less stress! 7mo
mcipher All. The. Time. Sometimes I read one or two books for months and start and finish three others in between before I get back to them. Reading life is weird. 7mo
RainyDayReading This is exactly what I‘m experiencing right now. I‘ve started so many books that I‘ve been enjoying! I just haven‘t finished any of them.... 7mo
DGRachel @Mitch I‘ve just been so tired that I can‘t focus on reading at all, even the short stories are too long to hold my attention. I start reading, make it maybe 5 pages, and fall asleep. But, I am definitely going to take your advice, grab the skinniest books first and try to get that sense of accomplishment for encouragement. 🥰 7mo
DGRachel @CaliforniaCay I‘ve been doing multiple formats just to make progress. I have Changeless in print, Kindle, and audiobook and have flipped back and forth! 7mo
DGRachel @GingerAntics Henry IV is done and was actually probably the thing I was least stressed about because I had the audio and breaking it down into one act per Sunday was cool. Since Act V was only 30 minutes, I finished it today just so I could feel a little better about myself and actually finishing something. 🥰 7mo
DGRachel @Leftcoastzen @MelissaSue81 @LiteraryinLititz @rretzler @Eyelit @mcipher @RainyDayReading Thank you all, too, for the support and encouragement. It‘s nice to know I‘m not completely crazy or alone in this feeling. 😘😘 7mo

Nap time means I get a few stolen moments of reading! It seems like I've had no time to read the last couple of days, and I'm definitely feeling it. #ReadingTime is my #MeTime, so when it's lacking I tend to turn into a stressball.

I finished this up on audiobook last night. It was just as good as the first one!! That ending though had me sitting in shock, and had be running to download the third book at 2am!!!! Hahahahaha! I am just in love with all of these characters. I suggest this series to EVERYONE!! Do you ever wish you could be apart of the world a book is written about? Well I would love to be in this world!! What book do you wish you could “live in”

I have an hour break in between classes and so I decided to start in on a new audiobook! I loved Soulless soooooooo much when I listened to it a few months ago so I‘m super excited to listen to the rest! I just adore Alexia ! Who else loves this series? I recommend this to everyone!!!! You must listen/read Soulless first tho! If you haven‘t put it on hold or download it ASAP! 📚😍❤️

Redwritinghood I did like Soulless, but haven‘t explored the rest of the series. So many books! 12mo
Lynnsoprano Same as @Redwritinghood. I got Soulless from @theresidentromantic last winter in the Valentines swap and adored it. My TBR is just getting unmanageable, and every time I‘m ready to start a new book it seems I‘m getting a LibraryThing early reviewer book that jumps the queue. 12mo
Elma Yes!! I just made my husband read the first one last month. 12mo

I'm glad I have some shorter/faster reads because I'm also reading The Count of Monte Cristo (for #MakeMeReadIt) and I'm reading that veryy slowly (256 pages out of 1000😫)

IheartYA I'm glad it made you feel better. My daughter complained that I bought too much (yeah, coming from a 13 year old) but I told her she just didn't understand. 😂 Sorry you've had a rough time. We lost 2 very close family members last month. I can empathize. *virtual hugs* 2y

Fancy some book and food matching? This steam punk Victorian mystery/romance with wit and style definitely suits a creamy milk chocolate with Italian Piedmont hazelnuts. They're both delicious! (And Agatha is one very cool half Italian heroine 😎)

PS I am desperate to read the next book in this series. The mystery in this one was less complex (still good though) but I am so cross at one character and need some Serious Comeuppance!
