My Lady Jane

My Lady Jane (The Lady Janies #1)

by Cynthia Hand, Brodi AshtonJodi Meadows 

There are times when I can quietly finish an adventure and place it on my bookshelf, and then there are times when a story just sits on my bedside table for a handful of days after it is over. It took me quite a few weeks to My Lady Jane on a shelf, and it has everything to do with how much it surprised me.

Things happen quite quickly in this fantastic retelling of Lady Jane Grey's story: King Edward is dying (he’s terribly depressed over this) and Jane just found out her husband is a horse (call him ‘G’, please). Girls are wearing pants (the horror!) and ruling kingdoms.

And during all of this you, dear reader, are falling more and more in love and wishing that history could be rewritten for these characters.

I rarely laugh out loud while reading (you are much more likely to find me crying over a book) but could not help the smiles that broke free because of each page. My Lady Jane was lovely and daring and fun, and I just want everyone I know to read this.
