My moment was when I found an audio book copy of Friday's Child.
I had tried to read the book before but had to return it to the language institue before I even read much of it.

The audio book was a revelation, I loved Hero and Sherry and Sherry's friends, and I was surprised to find it was such a funny book, I was laughing so much, and with so much glee.

:D

I ran across Georgette Heyer's books in the library as a teenager. They were the first romance books I read and I read every one the library had. Since I loved history, and I've always been a sucker for a happy ending, I loved them. It's been quite a few years since I read them and it would be great to revisit the stories and read them again.

My Heyer moment is that many of my favorite authors were inspired by her! Devil's Cub is one of her best.

Okay, confession time! I actually have not read her books, but I own a few titles already. My historical fiction friends rave about her so, of course, I'm on a mission to collect her books. Thanks so much for the chance!

I've never heard of Georgette before what a great way to celebrate what would have been her birthday!

Marian said...

The first time I heard of Heyer was while reading a review of one of her books on the Smart Bitches blog. I immediately looked up her works at the library when I had the time.

I "discovered" her because I was chatting with a fellow book blogger, Christina from A Reader of Fictions, and she commented that she thought Heyer's romance was classy for their covers (looking like an Austen classic). And I ended up curious about Heyer's work.

I discovered Georgette Heyer by Googling 'authors like Jane Austen'. I then went to the local library and borrowed 'The Grand Sophy', the only book of hers that they had. It was a lonely point in my life when I discovered her, and she cheered me right up and made me feel hopeful.

I've never looked back!
