    Some notes: 1. You don't have to read MY LADY JANE first in order to enjoy this one. The books are connected only by the authors and the first and last words in the titles. And the look of the cover. And the amount of fun we had writing the books. And the amount of chocolate we ate....

    I really wanted to love this. So badly. My Lady Jane was so so much fun when I read it last year, but I just felt like both the humour and the story were pretty bland in this book. I felt like the previous book was a hilarious historical comedy; this one was a meh Jane Eyre retelling. ...

    Oh boy, this is going to be awkward. ? Disclaimer: I loved My Lady Jane. Every time I think of this marvel of a book a huge grin takes over my face. And, partially, that's the reason I may be too harsh on My Plain Jane (well this and my slow but steady transformation to a judgy ol...

    ?This brings us to the real start of our story: northern England, 1834, and the aforementioned penniless, orphaned girl. And a writer. And a boy with a vendetta. Let?s start with the girl. Her name was Jane.? I'm currently doing an MPhil in English Literature and...

    For this and more of my reviews, as well as my friend Petrik's reviews, check out my new blog, Novel Notions. I loved this book so much. Seriously. So. MUCH. There aren?t enough comedic novels out there that don?t edge irritatingly into silly. This book, and the preceding...

    For everyone who's ever fallen for the wrong person, even though we agree that Mr. Darcy looks good on paper...and in a wet shirt. I absolutely loved My Lady Jane when I read it two years ago. In fact, it was my favorite novel of 2016. Hence, I had nothing but high expectations befo...

    4 stars! ?Never in any Jane Austen novel did the love interest pretend to be a fortune-teller," Helen said, "Why would someone do that?? ^^Just kidding. But in this book she can see ghosts. I really enjoyed this book, it's a fanciful retelling of Jane Eyre that i...

    Very fun book! The authors took elements of the story of Jane Eyre and managed to turn it into a ghost hunting mystery adventure. It very much felt like a mix between a classic romance novel and Ghostbusters, and it was just a lot of fun to read. And I can safely say that even if you h...

    Few things: I got behind on my reading schedule due to a family thing and some unplanned buddy reads. I am LIVING FOR THIS BOOK, but it is taking me a while due to reading a little more than six books at a time and some with other people. So, therefore, know that I am so sad that it is...

    I think I liked this one more than My Lady Jane which I didn't think was possible. But it is. This book was perfection. I wouldn't change a single thing about it, and I want to read it again already, despite finishing it two minutes ago. Do I have a problem? Yes. That problem is that t...

    Pretty sure I will never get tired of these books... every single Jane in all of history needs their own book please and thank you. This was such a clever twist on the "true" events behind Jane Eyre! The general idea is that Jane Eyre and Charlotte Bronte are friends at Lowood schoo...
