Nicole D. (TheReadingRebel) | 1278 comments If you like Regency Romance or Georgian Romance I recommend:
Cotillion by Georgette Heyer, Frederica by Georgette Heyer, The Convenient Marriage by Georgette Heyer, Sprig Muslin by Georgette Heyer, The Grand Sophy by Georgette Heyer,and Devil's Cub by Georgette Heyer(the Devil's Cub has a very bad boy hero)btw all these are clean romances

The Traitors' Gate. I looooooved this one. it's YA but still REALLY good and my older sister loved it too. fast paced, you'll finish it in like a day. (even though it's pretty long)
I'll try and think of others....

This is my favorite mystery and will mostly likely always be The Westing Game.I read it in 5th grade and then again 2 years ago and still love it.The twists and turns were amazing.

I'm always open to CLEAN Tudor fiction recommendations. ;) and regency; and victorian.


message 12: by Sophie, The Romantic Moderator :) (new)

I second that, particularly (clean preferably!) regency romances ;)

I recommend the Cat Royal series( Julia Golding) for those who like YA adventures! these are definitely page-turners and they never bore me and don't have the hokey writing style used so often in Young Adult novels.

I've seen the movie, but never read the book... Have you seen it? Just wondered if they're mostly the same or not.


Kim-Lost-In-A-Book One of my favorite series is the "Mitford" series by Jan Karon The first book is At Home in Mitford (Mitford Years, #1) by Jan Karon It's especially good if you like small town life where everyone knows you :-)

For Tudor History (and other royal history) you can't go wrong with Philippa Gregory and Alison Weir. Alison Weir has helped many of the royal palaces with their history research etc. here in London.

Kim-Lost-In-A-Book It's one of my all time favorite series.

I think I saw the movie but it's been years and don't remember it at all.So I really can't tell you if it was loyal to the book or not sorry.

Aerykah | 2071 comments That's okay. :)

I reserved the first book of the Stonewycke trilogy, but it appears that our libraries don't have the other books! Bummer. I shall have to ask around and see if people own them so I can borrow them. XP
