I chose Jane Eyre.
I listened to this book over the weekend. Jane Eyre is a classic for a reason!
As soon as I finished reading it I wanted to talk about it. I love coming back to the old stories. Jane is such a complicated and relatable character, even today. If you haven’t read it in a while, or if you haven’t read it at all, give it a try. It may take a little time for readers of today’s literature to adjust to the older style of writing, but the story is popular because it is so good.
The more I read it, the more I like it. This was my mother’s favorite book when she was a girl.

Have you read this classic? What did you think?
~My Plain Jane by Cynthia Hand, Brodi Ashton, and Jodi Meadows~
This book had me snorting into my teacup. It’s a retelling of Jane Eyre, with the authors taking flexible liberties. It’s kind of a cross between the classic tale and Ghostbusters with a little extra thrown in for good measure.
For purists who like their classics, the irreverence may be a bit much. I found it hilarious. The cultural references to LOTR and the Princess Bride had me laughing out loud. I’ve always had a soft spot for literature that breaks the story by speaking directly to the reader. There’s something special about seeing “Dear Reader”. ❤️
I adore this book. I did not read the first one, but it certainly on my list now.
If you’re looking for a lighthearted read I love Jane Eyre adaptations you should check this one out.
There is mild language in one section of the book when are heroines are in dire straits and frustrated beyond their limits. Other than that, there should be nothing in here to shock the sensibilities. Unless ghosts disturb you. These ghosts are funny, for the most part.
