Young Adult Paranormal Giveaway Hop (US ends 2/27)

Young Adult Paranormal Giveaway Hop
February 21st - 27th

Featuring young adult books with paranormal elements

Today we are giving away Etiquette & Espionage by Gail Carriger.

From Goodreads:

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.

Sophronia Temminnick at 14 is a great trial more interested in dismantling clocks and climbing trees than proper manners -- and the family can only hope that company never sees her atrocious curtsy. Her poor mother, desperate for her daughter to become a proper lady, enrolls the lively tomboy in Mademoiselle Geraldine's Finishing Academy for Young Ladies of Quality.

But young ladies learn to finish...everything. Certainly, they learn the fine arts of dance, dress, and etiquette, but they also learn to deal out death, diversion, and espionage -- in the politest possible ways, of course. Sophronia and her friends are in for a rousing first year's education.

If you're not entirely sure it has paranormal elements, consider this:

Aside: I recently won Gail Carriger's dress in an eBay auction. I can't wait to get it and hem it (she's a little taller than me) and probably take in the bust a bit. Ahem.
