    4.25 stars! Oh, what a DELIGHTFUL story this is!! I loved SO MANY things about it -- a woman in science, a woman in arts, a woman who openly admits that she only loves other women (I mean, Lucy doesn't deny her attraction to other women), a woman who discovers new relationship w...

    Let's just get this out of the way up front: this is a gorgeous cover and it doesn't hurt that it's a great indication of the contents. Okay, this was a great romance, though with a few flaws I'll get to. Catherine has one of those rare titles that allow inheritance through the fema...

    This historical romance is practically a love letter to the often hidden contributions of women in science. The heroine, Lucy, worked as her astronomer father's assistant for the latter years of his life, and now she wants to be able to contribute to the field under her own name. No su...

    ? Video Review ? This book is the wholesome sapphic Historical Romance I was waiting for! ?We are not simply minds, trained like lamps on the world around us, producing light but taking nothing in: we are bodies, and hearts, and hopes, and dreams. We are men, and we are...

    The book is well written and the characters mostly likeable. I could have done with a little less tropey non-communication but all in all it's a good book. Recommended. ...

    Lucy Muchelney is the daughter of an astronomer, and a passionate astronomer herself, who had been doing essentially all the work of her father for years before his death. Lucy has also been in a long term relationship with a woman, but that abruptly ended when the woman married a man....

    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 queer histfic, especially when they're f/f. And there's a special set of e...

    Historical lady romance with astronomy and embroidery! You can see why I pre-ordered this, yes? Lucy is an astronomer and mathematician whose heart is broken because her lover just abandoned her to marry a man. On impulse, she flees to London to meet Catherine, the widow of an explorer...

    Maybe more of a 3.5. I enjoyed this one, but I wanted more romance and less science! If you're someone that really enjoys science and math and stuff and are looking for a queer romance, you will probably LOVE this. ...

    The love story is a delightful f/f 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 frust...

    This book had two things working in its favor when I saw it and purchased it before it was even released: 1) historical fiction/romance set in the time period I normally read (Regency period); 2) lesbians. Recently that seems to be mostly what I read, not everything, but mostly I ...

    this book should be marketed as gentleman jack meets lady's guide to petticoats and piracy because that's exactly what it is and i love it ...

    Picked this one up based solely on the reviews. And it was surprisingly good and well written. I usually find theses types of historical fiction stories to be long winded and slightly boring. But not this one! The book had great characters and pacing. The sex scenes were another pleasa...

    Jane Austen said "If aBookIs Well Written, I Always Find It TooShort" Most of us said "I dread finishing a great book" Partner said after hijacking the book from me and finishing it in a couple of hours "Absolutely great, let's get a copy for Mum" I said, "Be still my be...

    4.5 stars The Lady's Guide to Celestial Mechanics is an F/F 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 u...

    They were here all along: spotting comets, naming stars, pointing telescopes at the sky alongside their fathers and brothers and sons. And still the men they worked with scorned them. A Lady?s Guide to Celestial Mechanics is a historical romance novel about two girls who fall in...

    F/F HISTORICAL ROMANCE, IS THIS EVERYTHING I'VE EVER DREAMED OF OR WHAT Update: Yes, yes it was. When I saw a synopsis of this book, I knew I had to read it. F/F romance set in a regency era? Between a rich widowed countess and a girl astronomer? My instant reaction was HOW FUN...

    Thanks to Farah's exceptional review which I 100% agree after reading it, I don't think I need to add anything else. Instead I'll put her review here for everyone to read. :) Basically, this book is Austen-esque but with loads of brilliantly described intellectual pursuits by wom...

    Sooooo... I'm not sure exactly what made me pick this book up, since historical books tend to not work for me. Take my review with a grain of salt! The writing style was very fluid and the pacing was on point, but I didn't enjoy this one as much as I had hoped. I think it was a bit ...

    This book makes me so, so happy. I felt like I was floating away on a soft cloud the entire time I was reading it, or maybe slightly tipsy on champagne. I read this one evening curled up on a hammock and hated myself for not taking breaks (so I wouldn?t finish so fast!). Not offic...

    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 f/f relationship... But, I think it also may scare people away that aren't looking for a completely fluffy, harlequin, or overly dramatic romance...
