My Plain Jane Reviews
This was the most ridiculous thing I've ever read. It was complete and utter nonsense, and it was glorious.
Actual Footage of me
readinglistening to this book:
The authors make fun of the original story. A lot. It was gold. To be honest, the fact that I'm not a fan of Jane Eyre may have played a big part in my enjoyment of this book. I was already a fan of My Lady Jane but having all those references to the original work made this story even more fun to listen to. So, if you're a fan of ...more
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 old lady that is too difficult to please). I really wanted to love it. I expected to love it. I'm afraid, though, that My Plain Jane was exactly what the title promised. Plain.

Boo, that this was pushed back from May 1st to June 26th!
But then, yay because we finally have a cover =D
OMG...I literally just finished My Lady Jane yesterday, and now I find out that the three brilliant minds behind the book are partnering up again for another Jane themed adventure
To which I say: Hell yes! I am ready for more fun, romantic, humorous, historic retellings! =D
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. But other than that, totally different books!
2. You also don't need to have read JANE EYRE to enjoy this book. As with MLJ and knowing Jane Grey's history, we've got you covered in the prologue.

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.
I don't think it worked as well when the authors switched from a funny retelling of history to a not-so-funny retelling of a well-known book. Jane Eyre is easily one of my favourite books of all time and My Plain Ja ...more
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 have never read Jane Eyre (as I haven’t), you can still wholeheartedly enjoy this book. Oddly enough, I think my favourite character was actually Charlotte (Charlotte Brontë), but the entire book is filled with a gr ...more
Yesssssssssssss. *hisses enthusiastically*
A favorite classic, a favorite heroine, and a favorite YA author in Cynthia Hand. I'm going to aggressively hug this book when I get my hands on it.
I waited for this book for so long because I fell so much in love with the first book, My Lady Jane, and I was not disappointed one bit! I was thoroughly amused by this book and just ate it up quickly. It is entertaining and funny just like the first book! These three authors’ combined work is beyond amusing to me! Now I have to wait another year or so for Calamity Jane. Love love these Jane books!
My quick and simple overall: Another funny and entertaining work by three awesome authors!
