My Plain Jane: Review

464 pages

Published June 26th 2018 by HarperTeen

This book was everything I thought it would be. When I got the ARC from Edelweiss of this, I knew I had to dive in. But then I heard one of my sub boxes was getting it, so I waited and I am happy I did because the cover is so gorgeous up close!

I went into this somewhat blindly because I have not read Jane Eyre, but I picked it up as I went and got the gist of it. Though, I feel if I had read it, I would love this quirky retelling better than the classic. I loved the 3 POV’s this book had. From reading early reviews, some people were bothered by it, but I adored every one of them. Especially Alexander. I love the weirdness, I love the banter, and I especially like how you don’t know what was going to happen next.

Let me dedicate a paragraph to Helen because she was pretty impressive. She was probably my favorite character next to Alexander. Her wise-cracks lit up the pages. If ever I had a ghost, I would want one like her.

This book is darker than My Lady Jane (which you don’t have to read to read this one) and a little less crazy. I did feel like the humor was a tad lighter than Lady Jane, and the ending was a tad rushed. I needed more!

All in all, I had a blast reading this book, and I cannot wait for the next one.
