Olivia (oliviacharles) | 8 comments I started a List of Best Traditional Regencies. I've included any novel I've given five stars that is a traditional 1980's and 1990's regency. Please add to the list. I would love to read other regencies that you found as the best!

Olivia (oliviacharles) | 8 comments Thanks, Jamimey. I can't even figure out how to fix my picture so my head is not cut off....LOL...

Jaimey (jaimeygrant) | 16 comments I don't know that you actually can on here. I know that facebook allows it but on goodreads I don't think that's an option. :o/

BJ Rose (bjrose) | 6 comments Olivia, since you had Lord of Scoundrels on your list, I added The Last Hellion, which comes after LOS, and which I loved even more. If you haven't read it, you're in for a treat!

seton (lindaseton42) I was initially very excited about the trad listopia but if you're gonna include any ole regencys include non-trads like LOS, I am disappointed :-(

I tried to stick to adding only the ones that I'm pretty sure were published in the 80s and 90s but I may have added a couple that were from the 70s. I was really surprised to see LOS on there too...

Janet (janetnorcal) http://www.thenonesuch.com/index.htm Here's another go-to resource for OOP Regencies. Their reviews are very reliable. Off to check the list!

Beeface | 16 comments Maybe there could be a second list... one for Traditional and another for Historical/Non-Traditional?

seton (lindaseton42) There are plenty of listopias for HRs with LOS well represented. Go take a look and vote. This was the only one that actually was titled "Traditional Regency" but it's all water under the bridge by now.

Julianna (authorjuliannad) | 7 comments I was surprised to see LOS on the list too. IMO, it definitely doesn't fit the definition of a Traditional Regency. Then again, I see books on various Listopias all the time that don't fit the particular category of the list.

Olivia (oliviacharles) | 8 comments I do agree with Seton and LOS really should not be on that list. I am going to take it off. I meant for the list to be just 1970's, 1980's and 1990's traditional regencies. Thanks, Seton, for calling me to the carpet!
And thanks to everyone who has posted more books. I am looking forward to reading some of those on the list!

Thank you :) Very helpful of you.

It was so annoying...I went there and it was gone. So sad...

Aneca | 18 comments I just realised that The Nonesuch website doesn't exist anymore. I used it when I wanted to find a new theme or try a new author. It's a pity that there are no more onlise resources for trads...
