The Georgette Heyer Challenge 2011- brought to you by Books are a Girl's Best Friend

The challenge is underway! (The books I've read with links to reviews are at the end of the post.)

Only one more challenge. This is the last one I'm signing up for until I complete at least one of the 2011 challenges I've already committed myself to. But I've heard so much about Georgette Heyer and have never read any of her books. So thanks to Stephanie's Georgette Heyer 2011 Challenge I'm going to finally do it. (I'm only going to try for the lowest level of this challenge though. Inquisitive sums it up for me.) The first book I'll read will be Devil's Cub, and I'll go from there.

Here are the levels:

Inquisitive: Read 1-3 GH novels in 2011.
Fascinated: Read 5 GH novels in 2011.
Captivated: Read 10 GH novels in 2011.
Obsessed: Read 15 GH novels in 2011.
Addicted: Read 15+ GH novels in 2011.

  • The challenge runs from 1st January 2011 and ends 31st December 2011. You can join at any time within these dates
  • Anyone can participate
  • Any of Heyer's novels count for the challenge whether they are regency, crime or thriller (however, most of her books are regencies.) Here is a full list of her novels.
Head on over to Books are a Girl's Best Friend to sign up.

I'll be updating my progress with links to reviews below:


  1. Thank you for signing up and posting about the challenge Susan. I'm glad that you're joining in and get to try Heyer for the first time. I haven't read Devil's Club so I'll be interested to read your thoughts on it. Enjoy! :)

  2. Frederica was the first Heyer novel I ever read, and since then I've never looked back. Hope you're enjoying the challenge so far! :)
