I didn‘t enjoy it as much as the first one. Probably because it‘s hard to improve upon Jane Eyre. It felt slow and I prefer the gothic romance of Jane Eyre.

... what even is happening 😂 ok, so ghosts and ghost busters of the english kind? It would probably help if I knew the original jane Eyre story. But I dont. So whatever, this is going to be a ride.

#chillingphotochallenge day 8: Ghostly

I really like this book. It was so funny and interesting. Not as good as My Lady Jane but still really entertaining. I can't wait to read My Calamity Jane.

#bookfitnesschallenge week 6 check-in: Five books this week, and though I started out slow with my steps, I upped them enough by the end of the week to still average over 12k.

It‘s hard to believe this round is over. Such great motivation for me to keep up with my fitness and reading goals, and I love seeing how everyone else is doing too.

Quirky and charming YA retelling of Jane Eyre but where everyone can talk to ghosts. Slight redemption for Bran, the least interesting Bronte sibling.

This book had a little bit of everything: mystery, romance, thrills & adventure. You may know the story of Jane Eyre, but it's also the story of Charlotte Brontë, aspiring writer and seeker of stories. Jane and Charlotte are great friends at the school for girls where they aren't treated very well or taken care of very well. Jane ventures away as a governess, but can also see ghosts. Is this her calling? #whatwillshechoose #ghostsarepeopletoo ⭐⭐⭐⭐

4/5 stars 🌟

This book was so funny. I laughed out loud a few times while reading it. It was a very unique and special take on Jane Eyre.

I have never read Jane Eyre by Charlotte Brönté but I will soon read it for sure after reading My Plain Jane.

I highly recommend this book.

1. My Plain Jane 📚

2. There was no possibility of taking a walk through the grounds of Lowood school without hearing the dreadful and yet utterly exciting news: Mr Brocklehurst has been-gasp! murdered. 📖

3. With a dreamy far-off look and her nose stuck in a book. 📖

Next on my TBR list, My Plane Jane.
I am still trying to finish The Night Circus. I love it, that's not the problem. I just have a lot of pain in my neck which gives me headaches (nerves) and I choose this book for the #BookFitnessChallenge so I'm waiting for the pain to pass. It's been raining a lot here and it seems like I feel more pain on these days. I will update tonight what I did so far but I haven't done much exercises.

A fun take on Jane Eyre wherein Jane and Charlotte Bronte are friends and Jane can see and talk to ghosts. It maintains the cheekiness of the first book in this series but lacks some of the pizzazz. I‘ll definitely keep reading this series.

I was so excited to get my hands on the audiobook of second installment of the Janes Series from #Libby. I found this book to be witty and quite enjoyable. Swoonworthy, dreamy tall men who all have something to hide... Two young, strong women who want to make something of themselves. These remakes are delightful. While I didn't love this one QUITE as much as the first (My Lady Jane), I'd have to say it's a definite pick! 3.5/4🌟

The authors obviously had a blast writing this, and there are lots of great jokes and #metoo era twists in this but I still found myself almost skimming at parts. I've read both books in the series and expected to love them more. I did love how things turned out with Bertha and Mr. Rochester. I love the way this series twists history but I think I connect with the jokes more than the MCs.

Kimberlone I think the aesthetic worked better in their first book My Lady Jane. Probably because the Jane Grey story is much more obscure than Jane Eyre, which is widely beloved. It just seemed a lot sillier with a book that is quite serious. I didn‘t care much for this one either. 7mo
WhatWouldJaneDo @Kimberlone I think I liked this one better than My Lady Jane since the references were really fun for me. The asides also reminded me of a story my high school bf and I would write back and forth. But all the pining from Jane and Charlotte got old. I'll still probably check out the next one. 7mo

Pleased to say I enjoyed this as much as the authors‘ previous book (it‘s not a series, but almost kinda companion novels?). I know a lot of ppl thought this wasn‘t as good, but for me it was fun & silly & clever—a great escape, which I badly need. Loved the idea of Jane Eyre & Charlotte Brontë being friends, & that the ghosts were just like everyone else, except, y‘know, not living. Dragged a bit at the end, but overall a terrific read. 4/5⭐️

Traci1 I haven't read the other one, but I loved this one. 7mo

Crying, she told herself sternly, does not indicate that you are weak. Since birth, it has always been a sign that you are alive.

Because the truth was, she felt sorry for her aunt. To harbor such hatred. To house it inside her heart, and protect it with such passion that it ate her alive.

I know most people felt this wasn‘t as good as My Lady Jane (which I really enjoyed, and was pleasantly surprised by), but it still sounds like fun, and honestly I need something fun and silly and whatever else to distract me from garbage reality.

Started this on my kindle today. Didn‘t realize it was the second after My Lady Jane. Does it matter what order I read in? I have MLJ on my shelf.

I feel like the seasonal depression is hitting hard right now, and need something lighter after a few too many true crimes.

This series continues to be unbelievably fun! Jane Eyre is one of my favorite books, and then you add ghosts and pop culture references and authors who are willing to go ANYWHERE...it's hard to read this without a giant smile on your face.

I liked My Lady Jane better, but this was such a fun, satisfying romp that was filled with so many knee-slappers and modern references. You can tell the authors are having a blast and I love the book for the feel of it all. Read if you need a pick me up, love alt history, and can‘t resist cute romances.

Jane Eyre is one of my favorite classics, and this was a great, fun, retelling. I enjoyed the paranormal elements, and that Charlotte Bronte herself was a character.
