Prudence | Gail Carriger
Introducing the Custard Protocol series, in which Prudence travels to India for Queen, country...and the perfect pot of tea. When Prudence Alessandra Maccon Akeldama ("Rue" to her friends) is bequeathed an unexpected dirigible, she does what any sensible female under similar circumstances would do -- she christens it the Spotted Custard and floats off to India. Soon, she stumbles upon a plot involving local dissidents, a kidnapped brigadier's wife, and some awfully familiar Scottish werewolves. Faced with a dire crisis (and an embarrassing lack of bloomers), Rue must rely on her good breeding -- and her metanatural abilities -- to get to the bottom of it all...The Custard ProtocolPrudenceImprudenceFor more from Gail Carriger, check out:The Parasol Protectorate SoullessChangelessBlamelessHeartlessTimelessFinishing School (YA)Etiquette & EspionageCurtsies & ConspiraciesWaistcoats & WeaponryManners & Mutiny

Gail Carriger never disappoints. Fun and whimsical. These are the things you should read when life is getting in the way and you need to escape for awhile. Now I need a cup of tea.

I have an election hangover today. My husband was told to prepare for massive firings at the university where he works. The news is grim and I don‘t want to think about it anymore. So I‘m going to read something that‘s guaranteed to be fun.

When I find myself with “nothing” to read, or need comfort, I turn to two authors these days - Pratchett and Carriger. Another whimsical reread.

A bit of a rough start, and not as good as the original (yet), I missed Alexia... but this group of oddball adventurers is growing on me, and I loved the way they expanded the supernatural universe.

This book was very cute. It‘s in the same world as the Etiquette and Espionage series and there‘s a lot of connections to that series if you enjoyed it. There are similar themes and even references those characters but it focuses more on the supernatural themes than the espionage themes. A little white saviory at times but not the worst offender. I‘m going to keep making my way through Carriger‘s series

Prudence is the first book in the Custard Protcol series and it was a fun read but I still highly recommend starting with Carriger's book, Soulless, from her Parasol Protectorate series. It is a shining example of the author's brand of silliness 'n twee! Pick up Prudence if you've already read the Parasol series and are looking to explore more of this world; the Custard Protocol takes place many years after the Parasol Protectorate books.

Wee dram and Prudence. Fun to see the younger generation of the Parasol Protectorate Series. Love the characters. Rue and Prim have a great friendship. Percy, the mad professor with his cat Footnote is hilarious. Quesnel Lefoux is so much like his mother Genevieve. Charming and makes everything a double entedre. Plus you have an airship painted to look like a Ladybug. 🐒🎩🐞

I‘ve been dragging my feet, and slowly wandering the aisle of one of my favourite bookstores, but I finally passed 30k steps. I‘m going to start heading home now, and with my regular evening walk I should make it to my goal of 45,000 steps. What a day it‘s been! I can hardly believe it‘s only 4pm. 😅 #snowbootchallenge #bookfitnesschallenge @wanderinglynn

The audiobook is back on, and I‘m out and about again. Currently at 14k steps out of the 45k goal. Next stop is the thrift store. I have my backpack, so I‘m gonna check the books 😍😅 #bookfitnesschallenge #snowbootchallenge @wanderinglynn

The #ParasolProtectorate read along has made it to the home stretch because it‘s now starting the #CustardProtocol series, of which Reticence will be the last book - and the last book in the universe. There are going to be more novellas, I think, but Carriger has another series with shifters and a new scifi-ish book so it‘ll be interesting to see what happens next.

Riveted_Reader_Melissa I‘m going to have to try to join in if I can, my summer‘s pretty booked already but I really enjoyed the original series, and have the spin-off series on my to-read list. 😉 6mo
jpmcwisemorgan @Riveted_Reader_Melissa I still need to read one of the novellas earlier in the read along but Prudence is where I‘m going to try to join in. I tried reading it a year or so ago and it wasn‘t what I was in the mood for at the time. Let me know if you decide to join! 6mo

#LitsyPSA: If you‘re taking part in the #ParasolProtectorate read along this is on sale as an ebook. It‘s the first book in the #CustardProtocol series, which takes place after the books of the Parasol Protectorate. The last book in the series, and the last book in the universe except for novellas, comes out this fall.

I rarely order books from Amazon. I made an exception because I needed to make free shipping. It took over a week for Prudence to come in even with Prime. And the red riding hood is very short. I figured it would be longer since it has 4 volumes. I ordered vol 2 to try. We shall see if it‘s worth price.

🎩Pure escapist reading into the realm of absurdity, dry wit, fantasy, and adventure. I‘ve been a fan of Carriger‘s books for awhile. I‘ve only just started this series of hers. I always find myself craving a pot of good tea and something sweet though while reading her books!

This was the first book I had ever read by Gail Carriger and I enjoyed it. Steampunk high society London meets Charlaine Harris meets Deanna Raybourne. A strong female lead with vampires, wereanimals, and paranormal aspects. A little mystery, a little action, a little science, a little romance, there is something here for everyone. I will be picking up the 2nd book in the trilogy and reading Gail's other works. Four out of 5 stars. 🌟🌟🌟🌟

TNbookworm Great review! This has been on my radar for a while, now I want to read☺ 2y
Hornsby78 @TNbookworm Thanks! There's a bit of the back story with her mother and father in the back of this book which is in an earlier book of Gail's and now I want to read that one too. 2y

Trying this one again at the beginning. I was a few pages in a year ago when my attention span left me completely and I had to stop reading novels altogether. I had no idea I would still be dealing with concussion symptoms 3 years out from injury but here I am. #TBI #MentalHealth

jpmcwisemorgan I hope it goes better this time. I‘m sorry that you‘ve had symptoms for so long. 2y
Hornsby78 @jpmcwisemorgan I thought the symptoms had resolved themselves 14 months after the wreck but they popped back up again last year unexpectedly when my immune system became wore out from asthma flares. It seems I will have this to deal with for a while if I get too ran down or stressed out, like a virus that stays dormant for years. 2y
jpmcwisemorgan Yikes! That has to be hard because it‘s easy to get run down or stressed. And to have something like asthma that can be a problem for the same reasons, or mean you‘re more susceptible to other crap when you‘re run down or stressed. At least, that‘s how it is for me. 2y
Hornsby78 @jpmcwisemorgan That's how it is for me too. Thankfully, I believe I have finally found a treatment for my asthma that will keep it mostly under control which will help everything including the concussion symptoms. 2y
jpmcwisemorgan Good! Fingers crossed. 2y

I set this one aside to read other things and now I‘m determined to finish it this week. No more distractions. The problem is, I got to a sad bit. Let‘s just say that not all werewolves in Carriger‘s world live forever (it‘s brought up on the #ParasolProtectorate series, although I‘m not sure how much people paid attention to it). I knew this was coming because I‘m in the Facebook group but I‘m still not ready.

I couldn't resist this gorgeous cover once I saw it after hearing so many good things about Carriger's work. (She's delightful in interviews). I need all the fun, adventurous fantasy reading I can get right now, but should I start with Soulless?

mcipher I read Soulless and enjoyed it, but never went forward with the series. I hear these are good, too, though. I think you're set either way! 2y
LauraBrook I think you can start there. I haven't read all of her stuff, but have started and worked into 3 series, and they all do need to be read in series order. But that's book one, so you're good! 2y
WeeWeegieBookworm All three of her series are the same universe but different points in the timeline. I started with Soulless so by the time I got to this one, I'd already met most of the (now) side characters. I think you'll still be able to enjoy it though as the focus is on new characters and stories :) 2y
Bianca @mcipher @LauraBrook @WeeWeegieBookworm Cool cool. I started listening to the audio of Etiquette & Espionage, and I really like it. It's fun, and the narrator is great. Thanks, guys! 2y
