You know when you’re reading and tell yourself, “It’s fine, I can just get food after this chapter,” but then the chapter ending is so good that you immediately need to start another chapter, thus beginning a cycle that will never break until someone tears you from the heartbreakingly beautiful words of your new favorite book?! Yeah, us too.
Some people don’t understand what we mean when we say that we forgot to eat. It’s nothing major! It just means that a book was so freaking good that we couldn’t put it down! Honestly, it’s kind of a good thing! Minus the whole no eating part… Oh well.
Book Nerd Problems: Forgetting to Eat
- THE GENTLEMAN’S GUIDE TO VICE AND VIRTUE by Mackenzi Lee
About Gentleman’s Guide
“The queer teen historical you didn’t know was missing from your life.”—Teen Vogue
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.
