I obviously like YA books, but you may or may not know that I’m a huge sucker for a Regency romance as well. I grew up devouring Georgette Heyer novels and am currently a huge fan of Lauren Willig, Sarah MacLean, and many other Regency writers. So you can imagine how totally pumped I was when I first heard about A School For Brides, by Patrice Kindl – a YA book set in the Regency period. Here was the book description that got me so excited: The Winthrop Hopkins Female Academy of Lesser Hoo, Yorkshire, has one goal: to train its students in the feminine arts with an eye toward getting them married off. This year, there are five girls of marriageable age. There’s only one problem: the school is in the middle of nowhere, and there are no men.
