My Plain Jane : Review

M Plain Jane by Hand, Ashton and Meadows

*e-ARC kindly provided by the publisher HarperTeen in exchange for an honest review!*

Publication: June 26th

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.

Stars: ✦✦✦✦✦
So as usual, I'll tell 5.0 things I liked about the book and 0.0 things I didn't like.

So what did I think?

+1 | The humour and entertainment value is so refreshing and whimsical and beautiful and I just want more!

+1 | Language. I seem to just fly through these books. It kept me at the edge of my seat with things constantly happening and the characters swooning (though you never know if it was the corsets at times).

+1 | Retelling aspect. I love retellings and I really enjoyed Jane Eyre so I knew this was going to be great, but it was even better!
Filled with references (not only to Jane Eyre) with Brönte herself also a character.

+1 |  Characters and romance, keeping the Victorian era level of intrigue of course, was perfectly executed.

+1  | The world and plot. I hadn't read the synopsis before going into it, and so I had no idea what to look for, but it was everything I hoped, everything I didn't even know I wished for and so much more. It had me hooked.

Read on lovelies,
