Teaser Trailer (13): Etiquette & Espionage

Trailer Teaser is a meme that is inspired by Teaser Tuesdays but instead
than teasers from the book, i'm using trailers.

About the book:

Etiquette & Espionage (Finishing School #1)
by Gail Carriger
Pages: 320
Publisher: Brown Books for Young Readers
Publication date: February 5th 2013


It's one thing to learn to curtsy properly. It's quite another to learn to curtsy and throw a knife at the same time. Welcome to finishing school.

Fourteen-year-old Sophronia is the bane of her mother's existence. Sophronia is more interested in dismantling clocks and climbing trees than proper etiquette at tea--and god forbid anyone see her atrocious curtsy. Mrs. Temminnick is desperate for her daughter to become a proper lady. She enrolls Sophronia in Mademoiselle Geraldine's Finishing Academy for Young Ladies of Quality.

But little do Sophronia or her mother know that this is a school where ingenious young girls learn to finish, all right--but it's a different kind of finishing. Mademoiselle Geraldine's certainly trains young ladies in the finer arts of dance, dress, and etiquette, but also in the other kinds of finishing: the fine arts of death, diversion, deceit, espionage, and the modern weaponries. Sophronia and her friends are going to have a rousing first year at school.

Promo Blitz + Giveaway: Fang Girl Helen Keeble

Today i have another great book to share: Fang Girl by Helen Keeble. It sounds like a really fun and great read. Head below to read a fun guest post by the author herself and don't forget the chance to participate in the giveaway! ;)

Fang Girl by Helen Keeble
Pages: 352
Publisher: HarperTeen
Pub date: September 11th 2012


You know somethings seriously wrong when you wake up in a coffin...

Things That Are Destroying Jane Greene’s Undead Social Life Before It Can Even Begin:

1) A twelve-year-old brother who’s convinced she’s a zombie.
2) Parents who are begging her to turn them into vampires.
3) The pet goldfish she accidentally turns instead.
4) Weird superpowers that let her rip the heads off of every other vampire she meets.(Sounds cool, but it doesn’t win you many friends.)
5) A psychotic vampire creator who’s using her to carry out a plan for world domination.

And finally:
6) A seriously ripped vampire hunter who either wants to stake her or make out with her. Not sure which.

Being an undead, eternally pasty fifteen-year-old isn’t quite the sexy, brooding, angst-fest Jane always imagined....

Helen Keeble’s riotous debut novel combines the humor of Vladimir Tod with Ally Carter’s spot-on teen voice. With a one-of-a-kind vampire mythology and an irresistibly relatable undead heroine, this uproarious page-turner will leave readers bloodthirsty for more.

Find Fang Girl on: Goodreads I Shelfari I Amazon US I Barnes & Noble
