    The love story is a delightful ff romance set in Regency England 1816 The romance is slow burning passionate caring and intense The women are both scarred by failed relationships and their awkwardnesses and insecurities inform their behaviour which is very real if a bit frustrating at times for the reader but even when they don’t believe in their own relationship or the other’s love they still have one another’s backs It’s a glorious depiction of solidarity and female strength a

    This was such a thoughtful gift from Bethany “We thought we were separate satellites but we aren’t We’re stars and though we might burn separately we’ll always be in one another’s orbit” I really loved this a lot I especially loved all the different kinds of reclaiming in this story Maybe all it took for me to fall in love with a historical romance was sapphics in STEM and art Who would have guessed? This was so feminist so ueer so healing and so beautiful And I loved hearing th

    I was sent this book as an advanced copy by the publisher via Edelweiss for reviewing purposes but all opinions are my own I don't often read historical fiction but I've been trying to make exceptions for ueer histfic especially when they're ff And there's a special set of emotions I go through while reading the most unpleasant of which is the fear that something bad will happen that will make me recoil and make me want to put down the book not because it's not good but because of the unnecessary

    425 Stars This was lovely In a few weeks the second book in Waite’s Feminine Pursuits will be released While I wasn’t sure how connected the two books actually are I wanted to read this book one first since I’m very careful about reading books in order I’m glad I decided on this plan because this was a really enjoyable historic romance This is exactly the kind of historical fiction book that I love to read I prefer them to be feel good and less depressing but while still having a lot of depth

    45 stars The Lady's Guide to Celestial Mechanics is an FF historical romance set in England in 1816 and it's currently my favorite adult romance novel It wasn't perfect as I did struggle with the pacing as I usually do with this genre but to read a novel like this one about unashamedly happy ueer women during the Regency era was such a refreshing experienceThe main characters of this novel are Lucy Muchelney an astronomer who runs away to London to translate a French astronomical text and Catherine St Day the wido

    Ah this cover does so much for the book but mostly as a disservice Yep it gets the point across that this is a historical read with an ff relationshipBut I think it also may scare people away that aren't looking for a completely fluffy harleuin or overly dramatic romance for their read Basically it sells the uality of the story short because this is in fact a very high uality story with superb writing Don't pass it upWhere does the title come from? The romance is between an astronomer's apprentice Lucy and the widow o
