Spring Of Scoundrels: The Wisteria Society Of Lady Scoundrels Week 7

Book: The Wisteria Society Of Lady Scoundrels


Before I begin:

So sheโ€™s a thief, heโ€™s an assassin meant to kill her ๐Ÿค” Iโ€™m intrigued 

Heard of this book on booktube ๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ˜

Monday: Chapters 1 – 5

From my understanding, Cecilia is an orphaned ward of her aunt (Mrs. Darlington). She is a young member of The Wisteria Society Of Lady Scoundrels. Cecilia has a hit on her life ๐Ÿ˜ฑ, Eduardo Luca/Ned/Captain Lightbourne is a hired assassin assigned to Ceciliaโ€™s case. Another aspect is houses being taken ๐Ÿค” Cecilia thinking of finding her father ๐Ÿง Excited ๐Ÿ˜† to learn more ๐Ÿ˜Š

  • Peter pan reference ๐Ÿค” I love how the group always point them out ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผ Reading via audio again ๐Ÿ™‹โ€โ™€๏ธ Who called the hit? Lady Aโ€ฆ ๐Ÿ˜‚ Thanks for pointing out the houses were flying! ๐Ÿ˜‚ Reminds me of that anime Kiki and Up ๐Ÿ’ก Book club turned pirates ๐Ÿดโ€โ˜ ๏ธ ๐Ÿ˜‚
  • Get the Mary Poppin reference. ๐Ÿ’ก Take notes ๐Ÿ“ for every book or else I forget ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‡ thought ๐Ÿ’ญ I was imagining ned playing both sides
  • A queen in danger almost as good as a kidnapping ๐Ÿคฃ Live by my notes ๐Ÿ“๐Ÿ˜‡ Interested to learn more about her dad ๐Ÿค” ๐Ÿง Captain Charming Ned Lightborne ๐Ÿคฃ
  • Grateful the group points things out ๐Ÿ˜Š Confused most of the time ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿ˜ตโ€๐Ÿ’ซ

Tuesday: Chapters 6 – 10

Ceciliaโ€™s father becomes a bigger part of the plot ๐Ÿค” Ned admits to working both sides ๐Ÿ˜ The house ๐Ÿก with the Wisteria Society meeting is stolen ๐Ÿ˜ฑ More time with Med and Cecelia on page ๐Ÿค” Still nothing but banter and flirting, but end the section at an inn (in one room ๐Ÿ˜)

  • Fever dream ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿผ Great way to describe it ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿฝ 
  • ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿฝ record breaking kidnapping! ๐Ÿ˜‚ Road trip in the sky ๐Ÿคฃ I think weโ€™ll get more romance ๐Ÿ˜ 

Wednesday: Chapters 11 – 15

This story is confusing ๐Ÿ˜ตโ€๐Ÿ’ซ not sure I enjoy it amidst all my confusion ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿฝโ€โ™€๏ธ From what I gather: 1) Cecilia is Nedโ€™s target ๐ŸŽฏ 2) flying houses ๐Ÿก & stealing houses ๐Ÿก 3) Ceciliaโ€™s father ๐Ÿง So from 1, we know Ned is the H and Cecilia is the h. We just meet Frederick, Ceciliaโ€™s cousin and fiancee ๐Ÿ˜ฎ ๐Ÿ˜ฑ From 2, the house the Wisteria Society met in was stolen ๐Ÿ˜ฑ Cecilia wants to get them back ๐Ÿง And 3, Ceciliaโ€™s father is responsible for 1) Ned working as a double agent and 2) Ceciliaโ€™s kidnapping ๐Ÿ˜ฑ Anything else?! Hate to over simplify, just trying to understand 

  • Not familiar with the princess bride ๐Ÿ‘ธ i agree ๐Ÿ˜Œ definitely rereadable. 

Thursday: Chapters 16 – 20

This section was easier to understand. Correct me if Iโ€™m wrong ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿพ We learn Patrick is ๐Ÿคฌ about not being in the society, Ned has ties to Sila (question ๐Ÿ™‹โ€โ™€๏ธ Spelling?) Can visualize the flying houses better (chase ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผ), resulting in Patrickโ€™s death โ˜ ๏ธ Another โ€œdangerโ€ bang but is it?! Things are resolving ๐Ÿค” 

  • Iโ€™m also looking forward to listening to the FM episode! ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผ Love listening to the podcast episode after Iโ€™ve consumed the media! Whether itโ€™s book, show, or movie ๐Ÿฟ ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผ

Friday: Chapters 21 – 26

Last section ๐ŸŽ‰ This book was bonkers and had multiple wheels ๐Ÿ›ž spinning throughout ๐Ÿค” My overall rating might reflect that (as I wasnโ€™t in the mind space to FULLY enjoy the story). Liked Cecilia, especially as a strong woman โœŠ๐Ÿฝ 

  • Got the ๐ŸŽ house but missed the library ๐Ÿ“š ๐Ÿ˜‡ Chaotic live for a chaotic book ๐Ÿคฃ

Summary: ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿฝโ€โ™€๏ธ this story was ๐Ÿซฃ๐Ÿค
