My Plain Jane (The Lady Janies #2) Reviews
I’ve compiled a list of reasons why this is a Jane Eyre retelling worth reading:
-Charlotte Brontë is a main character and is so cleverly woven into the story
-Mr. Darcy is mentioned several times and it is so strange and humorous
-Wuthering Heights was quoted even though Emily Brontë makes an appearance as a teenage character and it’s highly unlikely it’s been written at this point
-Helen Burns is a paranoid ghost friend to Jane throughout the book
-just like with My Lady Jane, the satirical comment ...more

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 this book ended.

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 taking me so long to read this book but also really happy I get to read it at a slower pace and stretch it out and enjoy it more. I am really getting My Lady Jane vibes with the humor and the paranormal part of ii ...more
What I do not like: My Lady Jane.
What I do like: Jane Eyre.
What I am doing: adding a My Lady Jane sequel retelling of Jane Eyre to my to-read list.
In other words:
“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 Jane Eyre is one of the books I'm examining. What this means is I know every freaking inch of the novel. I know what scholars have said, I know the dirty racist and imperialist undertones, I know critical interpretations of barely ther ...more
I loved the mystery/paranormal aspects of the story and of course the Jane Eyre references!
