Hello everyone and welcome to week 3 of the Sunday Street Team blog tour featuring The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue! Today I’ll be showing you what it might be like if Monty, Percy, and Felicity had Instagram. I have actually done a similar post for Nicole at The Book Bandit in honor of Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life!
Now previously Mackenzi had mentioned on Twitter that each character would use different social medias, but for the sake of keeping me sane, I went with Instagram. I briefly asked Mackenzi what type of photos Percy and Felicity would post, because let’s face it, Monty is pretty much an open book.
I also recruited help from C.J. at Sarcasm and Lemons as well as Ellie at By Ellie M because I AM THE WORRRRRRST when it comes to writing clever and witty bios and thinking of punny Instagram usernames. So thank you C.J. for Percy’s bio & username and Monty’s bio! And sending inspiration for Felicity. Thank you Ellie for Monty’s punny username… AHAHAHA!! (I am still dying over here and you will be too very very soon.)
Ahem… to the Instagrams!!! WARNING it’s about to get sexy and swoony in here! (p.s. click for larger image)
According to Mackenzi, Felicity would never post selfies. All of her posts would be about travel with a lot of history in the description. She would also post feminist and activism things. She would also relentlessly tease Monty about his selfies in the comments.
Percy would post calm and pretty still life and some landscape/architecture. He would also capture candid photos of Monty.
It’s no secret that Monty is a bit of a narcissist and is in love with Percy. So why wouldn’t his Instagram reflect that?
The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue
Henry “Monty” Montague was born and bred to be a gentleman, but he was never one to be tamed. The finest boarding schools in England and the constant disapproval of his father haven’t been able to curb any of his roguish passions—not for gambling halls, late nights spent with a bottle of spirits, or waking up in the arms of women or men.
But as Monty embarks on his grand tour of Europe, his quest for a life filled with pleasure and vice is in danger of coming to an end. Not only does his father expect him to take over the family’s estate upon his return, but Monty is also nursing an impossible crush on his best friend and traveling companion, Percy.
Still it isn’t in Monty’s nature to give up. Even with his younger sister, Felicity, in tow, he vows to make this yearlong escapade one last hedonistic hurrah and flirt with Percy from Paris to Rome. But when one of Monty’s reckless decisions turns their trip abroad into a harrowing manhunt that spans across Europe, it calls into question everything he knows, including his relationship with the boy he adores.
Witty, romantic, and intriguing at every turn, The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue is a sumptuous romp that explores the undeniably fine lines between friendship and love.
Mackenzi Lee is a bookseller, history nerd, and the author of THE GENTLEMAN’S GUIDE TO VICE AND VIRTUE, THIS MONSTROUS THING (Katherine Tegen/HarperCollins), and the forthcoming SEMPER AUGUSTUS (Flatiron Books, 2018). She holds an MFA from Simmons College in writing for children and young adults. She loves Diet Coke, sweater weather, and Star Wars. On a perfect day, she can be found enjoying all three. She currently calls Boston home.
Why YES I did use real life photos of Christian Coulson (the narrator for the audio) *SWOON* Plus Mackenzi’s dream cast featuring Jordan Fisher and Àstrid Bergès-Frisbey!!!!! I AM IN LOVE WITH IT ALL! I hope you are too! I had a lot of fun making these even though it took freaking forever! Be sure to check out the other tour stops for the tour!
