I’ve wanted to read this book for a long time, and I finally found the time to do so and boy did I love it! It’s every much as enjoyable as I thought it would be, and as other reviews made me believe it would be. This book follows Monty who is going on a year-long Grand Tour of Europe with his sister, Felicity, and best friend, Percy. Monty has been in a lot of trouble – getting drunk, being expelled from school, and bedding girls and boys. I loved Monty though. He’s not as aware of other people’s circumstances as he could be, but he learns as the book goes on. He’s in love with Percy, but he doesn’t get how Percy’s life is very much different from his own  – they are both part of affluent families but Percy is biracial and that will always hold him back in the eyes of some.
This book is full of fantastic history, amazingly well-written characters, and enjoyable humor! You’ll learn, you’ll laugh, and you’ll feel. I cannot wait for the companion novel, this time following Felicity! 5/5 stars for sure!

In case you missed it, I also did a recap of the Mackenzi Lee signing that I went to - you can find that here

This keeps getting such good reviews! Turns out Hot Voldemort is narrating this, so I'm going to try the audio.

Yay! I'm so glad you liked this one, Lauren :D It's always a bit scary going into books that people have constantly told you are amazing so it's awesome that TGGTVAV lived up to the things you'd read about it :D

I think the growth of Monty over the book is one of my favourite parts of the story. Aside from the romance, which was so lovely!

I'm super excited for Felicity's companion novel, too! In fact I preordered it just last week ^.^ I hope we both love it!
