TTT: Favorite Regency Novels


This week's TTT topic is Favorite Books with X Setting. In my case X=Regency England.

 All Jane Austen really, but these two are my favorites.

Harsher than Austen, but still oh so good.

 Magical fantasy fun times in Regency England.

Julia Qunn is an auto-buy author for me. All of her books are set in Regency England and I adore them all, but this is my favorite.
 
And as a bonus, here is the WORST Regency set novel I've read:

What is notably missing from this list?
GEORGETTE HEYER Why? I've always wanted to read her books, but am a little scared. I've heard so many great things and I don't want to hate them. Also there are so many and I don't know where to begin. If anyone would like to help me with this I would love to hear your suggestions.

I did enjoy the first Kat Incorrigible novel. I haven't gotten around to much Austen yet. Interesting list.

Lovely list! I picked up Sorcery & Cecelia last year and have yet to read it, but I've heard it's quite fun! I'm with you on Georgette Heyer -- I've heard such good things, but wouldn't know where to start!

Oh, yes, Wrapped was fairly dreadful. I think I finished it, but just barely. LOVE the rest of your list! And I need to get back to my Julia Quinn readthrough--I keep getting sidetracked by other things.
Great List - I really need to read Wrapped. Pride and Prejudice and The Bridgerton series will go on my adult list :)

The Kat books just keep getting better.
Brandy said…
You should read it soon! So good. I know Georgette Heyer has such a large number of books it's intimidating.
Brandy said…
The ONLY reason I finished Wrapped was because I paid for it.

I love JQ's novels oh so much.
Brandy said…
P&P and all the Bridgerton books are perfect reading experiences. Of different sorts of course.

I've read a couple of Georgette Heyer, she's quite fun :)

I think the only one on this list I've read is P&P, but I loved it.

My TTT.

I haven’t heard of Julia Quinn, but you’ve piqued my curiosity! She sounds like someone I would like!

I’ve only read one Georgette Heyer novel (The Grand Sophy), but I loved it, and several more of her books are on my list.

Future Favorite Friday: June 2018

I take the 2nd Friday of every month to highlight some upcoming releases I am looking forward to that I hope are Future Favorites. Feel free to do your own post, just please link back to my blog and tell me about your post in the comments.

Two Naomis was one of my favorite reads of 2016 so I was understandably excited it's getting a sequel. 

In this sequel to Two Naomis, now that Naomi Marie’s mom and Naomi E.’s dad are married, the girls have learned to do a lot of things together, like All-Family Sunday dinners, sixth-grade homework, navigating the subway system by themselves, and visiting their favorite bakeries. Until sixth grade in a new school presents a whole new set of surprises and challenges.

Trusting her gut has worked for Naomi E. all her life, and she figures that it will be an asset to her role as a Peer Mediator—until she realizes how much of the job requires the Art of Compromise, which she’s only just starting to get used to at home.

Naomi Marie is excited about maki…

Lovely War

When I first heard about Lovely War by Julie Berry, I remember thinking, "Whoa, that's ambitious." And it is. The scope and depth of this story with all of its intricacies and thematic elements is massive. Berry manages to hold it all together beautifully. She managed it so beautifully that it is so far my favorite YA read of 2019.

The ecstasies and the wounds of love were Aphrodite's work. Forging passions was what she was born to do. She, too, was a welder, a mistress of fire of a different sort, working in materials more powerful and resistant than carbon and iron. And what did that toil do to her?

In 1942 New York City while men are partying on the eve of shipping off to war, a stunning couple arrives at a hotel in the midst of the revelry and departs for their room followed by an overly enthusiastic bellboy. But none of these figures are as they appear. The couple is Aphrodite and Ares on a secret assignation that turns out to be not so secret as the bellboy is Ap…

This Week's Topic: Auto-Buy Authors

Here are my auto-buy authors and their most recent or coming soon release. Also, I got stuck on twelve and couldn't cut it down any further. So it's really Top Twelve Tuesday today. Or Thirteen rather as I sort of combined Emma and Genevieve. (I auto-buy all their individual projects too.)








Who are some authors whose books you buy no matter what?

(I don't know what it says about me that there is only one male author on this list, but I don't dislike whatever it is.)
