Lisa Kay (lisakayalicemaria) | 21897 comments These Old Shades, by Georgette Heyer - written in 1926. Does that count as a classic?

These Old Shades (Alistair, #1) by Georgette Heyer

Pamela(AllHoney) (pamelap) | 14526 comments Well, its over 50 years old so I guess ☺

Lisa Kay (lisakayalicemaria) | 21897 comments Some people say it has to be 100. So, I thought I'd check. ☺


message 8: by Lisa Kay, Tinker Bell (new)

Lisa Kay (lisakayalicemaria) | 21897 comments Oops! 1926.


message 9: by Pamela(AllHoney), Fairy Godmother (new)

Pamela(AllHoney) (pamelap) | 14526 comments Still, its close enough. I know of books written after that that are considered classics.

Drew Delaney (BeatricePrasek) | 15 comments How about Madame Bovary?


message 11: by Pamela(AllHoney), Fairy Godmother (new)

Pamela(AllHoney) (pamelap) | 14526 comments Sure, Beatrice, but I get the impression that it may not fall in line with the HEA. I've never read it so I don't know mauch about it.

These Old Shades (Alistair, #1) by Georgette Heyer"


I have never read anything by her but would like to give her books a whirl ☺

Lisa Kay (lisakayalicemaria) | 21897 comments Yes, it looks good doesn't it, Robin? It seems the next one, Devil's Cub (Alastair Trilogy Series #2) by Georgette Heyer , is supposed to be one of her best.


Robin (Saturndoo) (robinsaturndoo) Yes, they both look good. I will have to see if I can find any of her books at the library.
