Mark your calendars as the work of Georgette Heyer is going to be celebrated over at Austenprose next month in honor of her birthday August 16. Throughout the month there will be reviews of her romance novels, for which I'll be sharing my thoughts on one of my favorites.
Unsurprisingly as I missed so much else growing up (bookwise that is), I only managed to be introduced to Heyer's work a few years ago. It pretty much only took one novel to hook me, and now she is one of my very favorite turn to authors when it comes to comfort reads.
Along with reviews by a multitude of bloggers, Austenprose will be featuring interviews with Heyer enthusiasts, guest posts, as well as giveaways (I hear there will be copies of her novels up for grabs).
This reminds me I need to keep an eye out for Jennifer Kloester's Georgette Heyer's Regency World, which has been on my wishlist since I heard about it earlier this year. Publishers Weekly gave it a starred review and it sounds like a must have for any Heyer fan who wants to know even more about the ins and outs of Regency England. I believe the celebrations will be kicked off with a review of this book August 1. Keep an eye out for my review at Austenprose on August 11!
