Books On Our Radar: My Plain Jane by Cynthia Hand, Jodi Meadows & Brodi Ashton
My Plain Jane, is the second installment of the The Lady Janies, from authors Cynthia Hand, Jodi Meadows, and Brodi Ashton. My Lady Jane was just so funny and such a pleasant surprise. So when I found out the authors were doing another book, this one about Jane Eyre. I knew it would be on my most anticipated list for this year. Also, I adore these covers! Jane Eyre was one of my favorite classics when I was a teen. I can’t wait to read the revisionist history that the authors will give us this time. I am sure it will be full of adventure, feminism, and side-splitting wittiness! I absolutely loved the first book and I can’t wait to dive into My Plain Jane which I am sure will make the perfect summer reading! Be sure to add it to your TBR and you can preorder it now for the June 26th release.
You may think you know the story. After a miserable childhood, penniless orphan Jane Eyre embarks on a new life as a governess at Thornfield Hall. There, she meets one dark, brooding Mr. Rochester. Despite their significant age gap (!) and his uneven temper (!!), they fall in love—and, Reader, she marries him. (!!!)
Or does she?
Prepare for an adventure of Gothic proportions, in which all is not as it seems, a certain gentleman is hiding more than skeletons in his closets, and one orphan Jane Eyre, aspiring author Charlotte Brontë, and supernatural investigator Alexander Blackwood are about to be drawn together on the most epic ghost hunt this side of Wuthering Heights.
