Georgette Heyer Gems of August Event

Welcome to August at Stiletto Storytime. This month I will be dedicating the majority of the posts on my blog to the work of author Georgette Heyer. Heyer is best known as the creator of the “Regency” genre of romance novels but to me she will always be the woman who provided me with “more” after I had devoured every Jane Austen novel in middle school and found to my horror that there would never be another….and so enter Georgette Heyer.

Through the years I have enjoyed many a Heyer novel and introduced her to many friends as well. And so this August as we celebrate what would have been Heyer’s 109th birthday on the 16th, Stiletto Storytime will be celebrating the work of an amazing author. Guest reviews of her many books, guest posts and an amazing Sourcebooks prize pack giveaway will all be included. So share your love of Georgette Heyer, tell us your favorite book, or even discover her for the first time…this month I want more than anything to encourage discussion and celebration of a wonderful writer who often in my opinion gets overlooked. And so without further ado…”Georgette Heyer Gems of August” begins…

    It has been a very long time since I read a Georgette Heyer book. How lovely to be re-introduced.

    I’ve heard of Georgette Heyer but I can’t remember reading any of her books – which I am definitely going to change! I love Regency romances so I am going to follow your posts on her and include some of her books on my TBR list to correct this little problem of mine!

    Love the post. Have great memories of reading every Georgette Heyer book in the 60s and 70s. Glad to see a revival of her works. There is a place in every woman’s heart for her books.

  5. How do I love Jane Austen but haven’t read Georgette Heyer? I can’t wait to read your posts this month about her and hopefully I’ll feel the same🙂

  6. Georgette Heyer – the greatest of regency romance writers and one of my all-time faves. The Grand Sophy is still one of my favorite books and should be made into a movie. It’s hilarious and romantic.

    And what a great idea for a contest! Good luck to all!

    I am ashamed to say I haven’t read anything by Georgette Heyer but I do have a few of her books on my TBR shelf. Maybe I should hurry up and get going like everyone else🙂. They do sound really good!
