Wow, I had no clue She had written so many books. Alas I have not read one yet! I am going to read "Arabella" pretty soon though. From reading your review on it, it sounds like a good one to start with :)

Good job! I still have to do my Heyer List Post.. I made the button for it LONG before I got the strength for the post. You did a great job! I love Georgette Heyer and all of her fabulous stories.

Great list! I've never read Georgette Heyer, but I will this year as part of my awesome author challenge. Would you recommend any particular book to start with? :)

Muse, Arabella is a great one to start with. It's very funny!

Thanks, Marie! I meant to do this for a while, too, but finally forced myself.

Kals, I've only read nine and am currently reading my tenth (The Masqueraders), but I'd recommend either The Grand Sophy or Arabella - which are two of her regency romances - or These Old Shades - which is one of her Georgian adventures, but it's one of her most popular and a lot of fun!

Thanks for the recos, Christy! I'm adding it to my TBR list :)
