These Old Shades (Alastair Trilogy 1) Georgette Heyer Audiobook video

Hello! 🕵🏻‍♀️ I just Love these nostalgic covers from Georgette Heyer. Did you know she wrote detective and classic crime fiction? They are among my Favourites from this era ~ the Golden Age ~ between the wars. She was just 19 when she had her first novel published and went on to write 50 more! During that time she never granted an interview or made a public appearance. I think she is more well known for her historical romances of which I am also a fan 🕵🏻‍♀️📚📘📖 Have you read any?...

Book three of 2019–Black Sheep. This one was such a great read, and so fun! Miles and Abby, Fanny and Selina were all great characters.
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️💫/5 stars and it definitely makes the list of my top favorite Heyer novels.

Happy Thursday, friends!

Do you have a "turn-to" author? One you know you can rely on when you want a book you'll definitely enjoy? Mine is Georgette Heyer! I worked out that I have been reading and re-reading her books for half my life now! But I still never get tired of her witty, romantic plots and hilarious cohort of entertaining secondary characters. It's lovely to know that, through thick and thin, I can always "turn-to" Georgette Heyer for a hug in book form. .

Stumbled across a sublime treasure-trove of a shop on a visit to #Brisbane, @antique_guild, and discovered a pair of gorgeous Regency-period porters chairs...with original leather!! Rare indeed ❤
.
I can almost see them on either side of the front door in the entry hall of a grand London Georgian mansion, a sleepy porter wiling away the hours in them as he waits for his master or mistress to return home from a ball. .

Oh Georgette, you hold a special place in my heart, and never fail to delight with comfort reading at its finest. Light, witty romances and more Regency slang than one would think possible. Irrepressible, intelligent heroines whose eyes inevitably sparkle with mischief. Devilishly witty heroes with hearts of gold, as well as the very shiniest hessian boots and the very fastest Greys (horses, for those who don’t know).

True, you do marry off far too many cousins, your feminist politics are questionable, and you’re a bit of a snob. In fact, in theory, I don’t like your novels at all. But never mind that. Practice says otherwise.

Besides I hear you didn’t even like your romances and thought your readers insipid bores. But needs must, so romance it was when no one would buy your impeccably researched, romance-free historical novels. •
So, I have only one regret, that one day I will have finally read all your brilliant 30+ novels, and then what? •

I love the annual second hand book fair in my local town. I managed a small pile of books I either want to read, re-read or just collect such as a gorgeous illustrated Jane Eyre.

A bit of a #sundayshelfie as I slowly reorganize my books, my shelves, and my home... In front are my “recreational” print reads (along with library ebooks of Mrs. Tim of the Regiment by D.E. Stevenson & Cozy Minimalist Home by Myquillyn Smith) for January.
I’m working on balancing my reading more between those advance copies & new releases I just can’t resist (and am so fortunate to receive) and my own bookshelves. I’m also indulging in read-throughs (with a lot of assistance from my library & used bookstores) of Mary Stewart’s romantic suspense, Barbara Pym’s spinster & vicar fiction, and Georgette Heyer’s English country house mysteries. And I’m up for suggestions of similar authors to try... (I have a list 😉)
Despite 2 weeks of holidays where I had planned to post, I’ve been back at work for a week and posted nothing. #flashback to another holiday I went on in 2002! Some photos I took on a tour with some lovely people I met on the Internet. The tour was to celebrate Georgette Heyer’s 100th Birthday! Pictured here are the Bow window at White’s club (behind the scaffolding), some pretty buildings and... ALMACKS! 📷 by me back in the day when everyone used film! 🎞

One writer looking to detox the superfluous, attain simplicity and feed the soul:

1. Byron Bay 1 month escape - ✔
2. Daily swims in the ocean - ✔
3. Almond and cashew milk lattes (decaf when feeling particularly virtuous) - ✔
4. Plant based diet (thank you @woodsbangalow for inspiration and Bangalow Farmers market for yummy produce) - ✔
5. Reading challenging books to expand my mind (Michelle Obama - Becoming I can't recommend enough!) - ✔
6. 4 hrs + writing time every day - ✔
7. Shoes optional, no makeup, avoid mirrors - ✔
8. Regular jogs on the beach - ❌
Sadly failing on the last one, but perfection is boring after all...we all need a few sins 😉😃

Unlike most Jane Austen fans, I'm not a fan of Georgette Heyer's Regency novels. I tried reading them more than once, but they are just not my cup of tea. However, I do appreciate her writing style, finding it snappy, clever and entertaining. That's why I decided to try one of her murder mysteries now. #newbooks #newreadingexperience #georgetteheyer #theyfoundhimdead

It's #fontanafriday - let's talk about pen names!

Dorothy Phoebe Ansle was a prolific author between the 1920s and the 1970s. She wrote 97 novels under the following pseudonyms; Laura Conway, Hebe Elsna, Vicky Lancaster and Lyndon Snow.

Most of these novels were of the regency romance persuasion. As far as I am aware, they are all sadly out-of-print. Ansle is not an orphan author though, her heirs are apparent. I wonder if they've ever considered self-publishing her work online? Historical fiction is so popular nowadays!

Anyway, were there any authors you were surprised to discover used a pen name?

Beauvallet by Georgette Heyer
⚔️
A swashbuckling tale set during Elizabethan times. Daring escapades, romance upon the high seas, impersonations, kidnapping all made for a fun adventure story!

Lucky enough to be in this beautiful place on a writer's retreat to finish novel #2. There's no doubt that beauty breeds inspiration! I hope 2019 brings beauty into your life too 💕

“That’s Mr. Frank Amberley, Sir Humphrey’s nephew,’ said the sergeant. ‘He’s a very clever young man, that’s what he is.’
‘Blocks in here as bold as brass talking about dead man on the road like as if they was as common as dandelions,’ said the disapproving constable.
‘So they are to him,’ replied the sergeant severely. .
Review now up on my blog (link in bio) - Georgette Heyer’s second country house mystery has barrister Frank Amberley acting as a detective, ferreting out murderers and secrets among the upper crust - and their servants. And of course there is a fancy dress ball to attend as well...
First published in 1933, this was Heyer’s second her “contemporary” murder mysteries. Any favorites among the 12? And isn’t this 2009 edition gorgeous? @sourcebooks released a new edition in 2018, still focusing on a car, but in a more Art Deco style.

Book 1 of 2019. Publishers Weekly says “Reading Georgette Heyer is the next best thing to reading Jane Austen.” And you all know how I feel about Austen. In 2018 I set out to read one Heyer novel per month... I started to falter but my lovely friend Nicole @thereadingrebel joined me last year and we’re now reading two Heyer novels per month. I’m trying to come up with my top 5 but it’s hard when they’re all so good. If you’re an Austen fan you should definitely check out Heyer. A Civil Contract is not as light hearted as some of her other books, but it still has a lot of interesting characters and made for a good discussion. ⭐️⭐️⭐️/5 stars.

Georgette Heyer is one of my favourite regency romance writers for her phenomenal use of witty humour. 😍

#amwritingromance #bookstagram #writingcommunity #amwriting #georgetteheyer
Currently reading... this is my second Georgette Heyer and so far I am really enjoying it. Have you read any of her books before? #bookstagram #book #currentlyreading #mystery #cosycrime #20thcentury #georgetteheyer #crime #reading #literature #classic #classicbooks #classiccrime #goldenage #detective #detectivefiction
Autora contemporânea a Barbara Cartland, Georgette Heyer é considerada um pouco mais “séria” e “culta”, afinal foi comparada a Jane Austin 🤓Neste livro, absolutamente delicioso hehe ela escreve a trajetória do Duque de Avon e de Léonie, da corte francesa da época de Luiz XIV: glamour e critica social 😉 Irônico, romântico e muito divertido. Ficou conhecido por aqui com o título “Fantasmas do Passado”. Título original “These old Shades”. Teve uma continuação “Devil’s Clube” onde o protagonista é o filho mais velho do Duque de Avon. #theseoldshades #georgetteheyer #fantasmasdopasssdo #derpageundderherzogin #kindle
IT IS SO PRETTY!!!! I love this book. Short stories by Georgette Heyer?? UM. SIGN ME UP.

What better way to see out the festive season than with this charming cosy read from Georgette Heyer? Her many blue waistcoat adorned heroes and bonnet wearing heroines are helping keep the January blues at bay!

My book review:
1. Always love Heyer. 😍
2. Charming and fun. I am always a fan of “spotting a long lost relative across a crowded opera hall” tropes. (That’s probably not a real trope. But it should be.)
3. A little bit more awkward to read post MeToo movement than in the 90s; I’m not sure what Heyer’s Twitter mentions would look like if this were published now but I’m gonna go with “not great.”
4. That said, one of my NYRs is to raise my child to be more like Aubrey and less like Edward.
5. Surprisingly a lot of talk of orgies in this, which I did not remember.

This morning has been about chilling (again) with good coffee (husband’s climbing a mountain or something) and a light, festive whodunnit. Not exactly stretching but a jolly good romp, what?! Some of the period dialogue is hilarious #recharge #reading #goodread #georgetteheyer #cafelife #metime #whodunnit
I love #georgetteheyer so much, and it was wonderful to find this one at the library that I hadn’t read before. I want to get heaps of reading in this year... I’m not going to hold myself to a list, I’ve got too many other big goals to accomplish this year. But there are starting to be piles of books in my house again, and that makes me happy #reader #readersofinstagram
My SIL who I adore @carlyjeanbean pulled some books for today’s stack for me. She said she was cold 😂❄️ so this is from that. It is cold! We went below zero last night. I am in the non-desert part of Arizona so we do get all 4 seasons and we have snow all over right now, but after last year’s crazy mild winter this has been a nice change. #penguinclassics #puffinbooks #coraliebickfordsmith #wordcloudclassics #georgetteheyer #wordsworthclassics
It’s my first day back in my #writingcave after the festive break, complete with the stack of books I got for Christmas. I’ve been polishing my website and getting rid of all its cobwebs 🕸 and next, I’m going to look into setting up a newsletter for readers.
*
We’ll move on from the fact that I’ve also spent quite a bit of time mainlining coffee ☕️ and doing quizzes that tell me who my British Actor Soulmate is. (It’s Zayne Malik, if you’re interested, which proved it wasn’t the most accurate quiz, because not only do I not like him, he’s not even an actor 🤔).
*
I’m thinking that my newsletter will be full of book news, book recommendations and a few photos, but is there anything else anyone would like to see? All suggestions greatly appreciated.
*
I’m very excited about what 2019 has in store, on the writing and reading fronts, and I can’t wait to share news about this year’s book, hopefully very soon.

It’s so hard for me to be concise (and everyone who knows me well knows how true that is! 😂), but I tried to choose my favorite books for 2018 out of the many I read this year. I had 23 of the 125 books I read rated 5 ⭐️, and there were five more books I almost gave 5 stars that would definitely be honorable mentions. Here are my Top 10 fiction/poetry for the year. I’ll post my Top 10 nonfiction in a separate post. •

Hello and Happy New Year! 😽Welcome if you’ve just recently joined me here 📚 I hope you find a book you like 📖 Today I’m sharing my First read of the New Year. This Book was given to me, by my Sister, for my Birthday. I Love Georgette Heyer, both her Historical Romances and her Detective Fiction. This is a Murder Mystery set in a Haunted(?) Priory with things that go bump in the night. It was written in 1932 so has a lovely nostalgic, period feel. I have a slightly damaged paperback copy for sale in my ‘Bookshop’ on eBay where you can read more details. Swipe for the image. We’ve been for a lovely walk near the Coast so now it’s time to read. Enjoy your day, my Friends 😽📘📖 xxx #georgetteheyer #footstepsinthedark #murdermystery #crimenovel #britishbook #britishmurdermystery #newyearread #firstreadoftheyear #book #bookseller #bookshop #bookish #bookaddict #readingaddict #bookaholic #ilovetoread #ilovebooks #curlupwithagoodbook
Woot! Finished my last read of 2018. I’ll get my stats up soon.
This is an atypical romance, because there aren’t even any kisses, and the heroine is offstage for a solid 100+ pages. But it’s hilarious and so clever. #georgetteheyer #jesshowreads2018 #bookstagram #bookstagrammer #audiobook
Golden Age crime thrillers read during December. My favourite was #georgetteheyer who is very underestimated as a detective writer imo. All in all perfect winter reading #booksread #booklover #whatireadthismonth #goldenagecrime

#thecorinthian #georgetteheyer #bookreview I loved Georgette Heyer audiobooks and this is the first one I’ve actually read. The first couple of chapters weren’t great, but then it improved and became a great escape into another world pp233.
Stayed home from church with a slightly sick kid. {She’s not that bad, but her cough sounds gross, and I didn’t want to be *that* parent.} 📚
So used the opportunity to roast up all the veggies we hadn’t eaten this week. {Strangely, however, there are zero wilting cookies lurking. 🤔}

Another favourite author, with a quizzing glass for random examination. #georgetteheyer #quizzingglass #regencyromance #regencyfiction #bookstagram #bookshelf #booksofinstagram
I gave this to my mother a couple of Christmases ago. We’re big Georgette Heyer fans and have pretty much every book she ever wrote (plus audiobooks to match). Even though we already had this as ‘Pistols for Two’ I couldn’t resist the beautiful wintery cover and the prospect of three new stories!

I find there’s a lot of snobbery about GH’s books and have heard her called ‘a poor man’s Jane Austen’. Well I actually prefer her to Jane Austen *cue the horror and clutching of pearls* Her books may be frothier in tone, but her witticisms and descriptions of Regency life are so completely brilliant. For me, her books are the ultimate in ‘comfort food’ reading and I have no patience with book snobs. If you’ve never read any I could not recommend them more! (Particularly good by the fire with your festive drink of choice in hand!)

I haven’t had the chance to mention it before, but I am a HUGE Georgette Heyer fan. She is one of my favorite authors of all time. Her Regency romances are like fluffy little candies filled with comedy and cheer. They never fail to make me smile.

When I spotted this new edition at the Poisoned Pen Bookstore, I had to have it. And thankfully the weather cooperated so I could snap the most appropriate photo!
This is not my favorite work of Heyer’s, but I’m always happy to have more of her stories to read. In the last 5 years I’ve been slowly (and sometimes not so slowly...) inhaling her books. Before this, I only had one left and I’ve been trying to save it for whenever I need some emergency fluff to read. Now I’m happy to have something else to savor!

QOTD: Is there a series or collection that you are trying to savor? Or are you more of a binge reader?

My used book store finds for the end of 2018. I have to say, my heart lept when I saw not one, but 2 Friends related hard bound book. Even if I have a copy of the Ultimate Friends Companion, I still bought it. 🤓😅 All of these books and still below 500php. Now that is a freaking great deal! 😍💁🏻‍♀️ .

'I am a Georgette Heyer fan. There. In the full knowledge that many, probably most, of those who consider themselves serious readers will react to such a statement with a disdainful curl of the lip, I’ve said it. And over the nearly fifty years since I read my first Georgette Heyer, just enough other fans have stuck their heads above the parapet for me to know that I’m in good company.
*
We are a disparate bunch, a secret society so secret that we don’t even know who else belongs. We have her books so we don’t need each other. If we are rumbled – an inquisitive visitor comes across a row of her titles while perusing our bookshelves, say, or we leave a copy of our latest reread (her books must be reread more than those of any other author) open on the table – we brace ourselves for a sneer and rehearse a casual disclaimer. This is invariably met with a disbelieving ‘Hmm’ and a change of subject, but we have heard the clunk of our fall in their estimation. Strangely, this predictable scenario is almost easier to deal with than the obverse, for if the rumbler turns out to be another fan we will almost immediately fall out. The delighted ‘Oh you read Georgette Heyer too!’ is always followed by ‘Which is your favourite?’ And then the arguing starts. ‘How can you like The Toll Gate more than Devil’s Cub? There’s no comparison.’ ‘Friday’s Child better than The Grand Sophy? Never!’ Perhaps, all things considered, we do better to keep our devotion to ourselves . . .' || Words by Julia Keay || Illustration by Mark Handley from #SlightlyFoxed Issue 16 || Read the full article on the Foxed Blog: https://foxedquarterly.com/georgette-heyer-julia-keay-literary-review/

Another of my Christmas Classicsathon finished! (Hosted by @lucythereader) The Christmas Party, published as Envious Casca, is the first of Georgette Heyers crime fiction novels I’ve read.
.
For myself, I prefer the wit and hilarity of the characters in her regency novels.
In this story, all her characters are vapid, dull and annoying. All most as if she’s writing a parody of twenty century country house murder mystery. The plot dragged more than I expected of her novels. But I stuck to it to see how the whole locked room mystery turned out. But then the end was a little of an anticlimax.
.

Overall, I still LOVE Georgette Heyer as a writer. But this novel is relagated to the-cosy-I’ve-nothing-else-to-read-pile. .

Did a small bit of pre-Christmas shopping for myself and I absolutely love my cozy new @vionicshoes slippers (hooray for flash sales!) & how gorgeous are the newest editions of Georgette Heyer’s country house mysteries from @sourcebooks ?!
Trying to reconcile myself to having a collection of different editions (swipe to these beside 2 other editions I’ve purchased used), though I’d love to have all twelve in one!

Big Christmasy thanks to @panda_in_bookland for this gorgeous Christmas Eve styling of #thedarkdaysdeceit, the third and final Regency adventure in the Lady Helen series. It is set duting Christmas in Bath 1812 so it’s a fab Christmas read (and present 🎁).
A few last minute ideas. Just a few Georgette Heyers left. There is a store full of all kinds of books for all ages. Open Christmas Eve 10 to 5.

Sprayed edges are so pretty I can't 😍. Still, you shouldn't judge a book by its sprayed pages.
.
I haven't read neither yet, so I can't confirm if they are as good as their looks. Actually, I haven't read any of the books in this pic 😂. You can consider it though as a glimpse of my tbr for the new year!
Yeah that's sounds better. It's my tbr.

Anyone else read it? #bookstagram #lydlovesbooks #georgetteheyer #snowdrift #christmasreads #festive #christmasiscoming #3moredays
The Mysteries 🕵🏻‍♂️
.
In @jenkloester’s biography she quotes from a letter written by Georgette “I suppose the trouble is that I never do like writing detective stories, & all the clues & things bother me at the best of times...” .
Currently re-reading Envious Casca which I’ve seen floating around Instagram as “A Christmas Party”. This was her original name for it which she decided to change. EC is a quote from Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar. .
Written during WWII Georgette struggled to finish writing as she found writing a modern book too real alongside the horrors of war. She put it aside and escaped from reality by writing The Corinthian instead. .
