My Top Ten Georgette Heyer

Early in the year, I decided I would try to read ALL of Georgette Heyer's romances in order of publication. I didn't know if I would be able to do it, but I was thrilled to even try. I found this to be a giddy-making goal! I just loved the experience of reading so many Heyer novels!

It was really hard to narrow it down to just ten. There were two or three that almost-almost made the list. And if I was writing the list on another day, they might just have made it. The honorable mentions are: Lady of Quality, Faro's Daughter, Black Sheep, and Convenient Marriage

Have you read any Georgette Heyer books? What book is your favorite? Do you have one or two that you love to read again and again?

I have read a fair amount of Georgette Heyer and yet I've only read three on your list: Cotillion, Devil's Cub and Fredericka. My very favorite is Faro's Daughter. Fun list!

"Sylvester" is my favorite, closely followed by "The Masqueraders". And I have a soft spot for "A Civil Contract", which I disliked as a teenager, but have really grown to appreciate as an adult.
