Day 6: The Gentleman's Guide to Vice and Virtue by Mackenzi Lee (12 Days of Diverse Reads)

Hello! Today is day 6 of our 12 Days of Diverse Reads thingy. In case you don't know what that is, it's something we are doing for the rest of 2016 and every day we are featuring a diverse novel being published in 2017. The book I'm featuring today is something I think I actually heard about from Twitter. I looked it up, read the blurb, and practically fell in love. This sounds like an amazing book and I would definitely love to read it when it comes out. I've gotta confess though. 

I've never read a story that includes LGBT+ in it. I feel ashamed of myself and I definitely want to change that. So, next year I hope to read more books with LGBT+ in it (more diverse books in general).

Okay, enough about me. Let's get to the actual book now!

An unforgettable tale of two friends on their Grand Tour of 18th-century Europe who stumble upon a magical artifact that leads them from Paris to Venice in a dangerous manhunt, fighting pirates, highwaymen, and their feelings for each other along the way.

Henry “Monty” Montague was born and bred to be a gentleman, but he was never one to be tamed. The finest boarding schools in England and the constant disapproval of his father haven’t been able to curb any of his roguish passions—not for gambling halls, late nights spent with a bottle of spirits, or waking up in the arms of women or men.

But as Monty embarks on his grand tour of Europe, his quest for a life filled with pleasure and vice is in danger of coming to an end. Not only does his father expect him to take over the family’s estate upon his return, but Monty is also nursing an impossible crush on his best friend and traveling companion, Percy.

Still it isn’t in Monty’s nature to give up. Even with his younger sister, Felicity, in tow, he vows to make this yearlong escapade one last hedonistic hurrah and flirt with Percy from Paris to Rome. But when one of Monty’s reckless decisions turns their trip abroad into a harrowing manhunt that spans across Europe, it calls into question everything he knows, including his relationship with the boy he adores.

Witty, romantic, and intriguing at every turn, The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue is a sumptuous romp that explores the undeniably fine lines between friendship and love.
