Here There Be Books (BL)

I love books with great characters who go on adventures and/or solve mysteries re: invading aliens/vampires/etc. I blog about those books at Here There Be Books!


This is the BookLikes thingy for HTBB.

The Black Moth

The Black Moth - Georgette Heyer [b:The Black Moth|311322|The Black Moth|Georgette Heyer||2651650] is [a:Georgette Heyer|18067|Georgette Heyer|]'s first book ever written, when she was 17 and wanted to cheer up her sick brother. It's not as amazing as April Lady was, but it's still pretty darned good for a first book anyway. Yeah, Lavinia ends every sentence with an exclamation mark. Yeah, the villain kidnaps the heroine TWICE and nobody does a frickin' thing about it. But the characters are very human and real and the romances are just as lovely as you'd expect, so if you like Georgette Heyer's Regency romances you'd probably like this Georgian romance, too. (I also wrote a bit about The Black Moth in Sunday's Currently Reading post, so go check that out for more of my thoughts.)(This review was originally posted on Birdbrain(ed) Book Blog.)
