A Lady For A Duke Reading Blog

Check-ins/Updates:

Before I begin:

Still reading Drag Me Up, but the audiobook usually help me get through books ๐Ÿ“š faster (preferable in a readathon). This book was highly recโ€™d and seems to, already,  be ๐Ÿ˜Š

Chapter 6

Good ๐Ÿ˜Š introduction ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผ If I understand correctly, Viola pays a visit to a friend who believes them dead โ˜ ๏ธ Said friend doesnโ€™t know theyโ€™ve transitioned from male to female ๐Ÿ˜ฑ๐Ÿ˜Š Never heard of instances like this ๐Ÿค” so Iโ€™m curious to read more ๐Ÿค” 

Chapter 17

Gracewood and Viola getting (re)acquainted and familiar with each other. With Gracewoodโ€™s reclusive behavior, concern for Myra makes sense ๐Ÿ˜Š Iโ€™m looking forward to the change of environment ๐Ÿค— Still enjoying the story ๐Ÿ˜ Think its forward thinking ๐Ÿค” At that time, trans people had a particularly hard time (like now, moreso then).

Chapter 28

The secretโ€™s out ๐Ÿค Didnโ€™t expect Gracewood to come to London ๐Ÿ˜ฎ or for Viola to stay with him ๐Ÿ˜ Looking forward to their library  meet ups ๐Ÿ˜ ๐Ÿค—The coming out ball hasnโ€™t happened yet, but when it does ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜‚ Despite the big reveal, the story remains, relatively, light

Chapter 39

Myra bi?! Kidnapping?! Unexpected plot twists!!! Viola-Gracewood fairly developed so the storyโ€™s working on its plot ๐Ÿค” I honestly donโ€™t know whatโ€™s going on?! This past section picked up a lot ๐Ÿค” aWe see queer rep and a kidnapping?! Know who but why?! Looks like weโ€™ll find out in this last chunk ๐Ÿคฏ

End of book ๐Ÿ“–

Enjoyed ๐Ÿ˜Š the story, but longer than Iโ€™m used to ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿฝโ€โ™€๏ธ
