“"Ivy, my dear," said Miss Tarabotti as her friend bustled up, "how marvelous of you to find time to walk at such short notice! What a hideous bonnet. I do hope you did not pay too much for it."
"Alexia! How perfectly horrid of you to criticize my hat. Why would I not be able to walk this morning? You know I never have anything better to do on Thursdays. Thursdays are so tiresome, don't you find?" replied Miss Hisselpenny.
from chapter 2 of Soulless by Gail Carriger
I haven't giggled my way through a book in such a long time. The humour is of the "disastrously polite" variety, layered with bucketloads of sarcasm. Side characters are incredibly enjoyable, as is the deliciously described world and intriguing mystery in the plot. I do adore friends that are comfortable enough with each other to bluntly declare their true opinions lol
