Book tastes

I like GailCarriger books and enjoy YA generally, though not heavily supernatural. I also like Amanda Quicks's series about Arcane Society, etc., and have read them all. Something similar would be appreciated. Also non fiction, particularly fashion and fashion history. Please see my library for what I have. I also have enjoyed all of Vince Flynn or WEB Griffin.

Don't get this!

I dislike fantasy with the exception of vampires or weres that are human(ish). Dislike imaginary beasts and so on. I dislike westerns. I intensely dislike violence in excess and gore, or anything that has a dying animal or cruelty to animals in any form.

Other notes

Don't mind bad language in general, though constant use of F... indicates a general lack of imagination and talent IMHO. Can't stand cruelty or death of animals or children. Will not read excessively bloody, torture scenes, etc.

MDGentleReader: A Lady of Devices by Shelley Adina is very similar to Gail Carriger's Finishing School series, although the main character is a bit older and not in a boarding school. I think MissJessie would really enjoy the series - scratches the same itch for me that Amanda Quick and Gail Carriger do. (Fri, 02 Dec 2016 17:34:55 -0500)
