Fantasy of Manners

Fantasy that takes place in a highly structured society with an emphasis on manners and acceptable behavior. This can be historical fantasy or paranormal in a Regency or Victorian setting, or other-world fantasy in a similar vein. It does not include just any Fantasy in a historical setting. A central emphasis on social correctness and etiquette is a must. Think Jane Austen or Georgette Heyer with magic.

The keyword here is Fantasy - no Science Fiction or Dystopia, please. No Historical Fiction or Historical Romance. No fairy tale re-tellings - those are in a class of their own. Steampunk is acceptable if there is a Fantasy or Paranormal element.

The list for Sci Fi and related genres is here: Sci Fi of Manners.

message 1: by Alysa (new)

Alysa Well thank you very much! As if my to-read pile wasn't unmanageable enough! ;)


message 2: by Kamaria (new)

Kamaria Nurse I love this list I've read most of the books on this list but now I've found more books that are totally my kind of book. YAY!!!


message 3: by Sarah (CoolCurryBooks) (last edited Mar 12, 2015 08:12AM) (new)

Sarah (CoolCurryBooks) Blue Lily, Lily Blue and Cress are most certainly NOT fantasy of manners and I'm removing them. Come on, they are YA modern urban fantasy and futuristic science fiction!

Does anyone have thoughts on The Lies of Locke Lamora qualifying?

I haven't read it, so I can say for sure. It doesn't seem like it fits based on the synopsis, but I don't want to delete it just in case.

I also have the same question about Charmed Life. Anyone have any idea about that one?


message 5: by Vera (new)

Vera I love this list :)


message 6: by Nikki (new)

Nikki While Sarah J. Maas is one of my favorite authors, I don't believe Throne of Glass belongs on this list. Same with The Lies of Locke Lamora.

Thank you! I removed them.


message 8: by Brynna (new)

Brynna, if you hit the 'like' button, you can find it again more easily in your liked lists.
