Audiobook Review: ‘My Plain Jane’

This book is SO MUCH FUN! If you’re looking for a lighthearted comedic read, pick up this book, My Plain Jane, or the previous book by the Lady Janies (what the authors call themselves), My Lady Jane. This is a retelling of Jane Eyre….but with a twist or a hundred thrown in. It’s not the story you know.

I will preface this by saying I have never read Jane Erye and I enjoyed this story completely! You don’t need to have read My Lady Jane or Jane Eyre to enjoy this. While this is sort of part of a series, it reads as a standalone.

Title: My Plain Jane
Author: Cynthia Hand, Brodie Ashton, Jodi Meadows
Series: The Lady Janies – but reads as a standalone
Rating: 3.5/5

Audiobook Review: ‘The Wicked Ones’

As we are quickly approaching the conclusion of Ghosts of the Shadow Market novellas, I feel like the stories are becoming more important. This one in particular feels like it will play a very important role in Queen of Air and Darkness. AKA I need a new family tree because I can’t keep everyone straight, especially these Herondales!!!

Audiobook Review: ‘A Deeper Love’

After how much I disliked Learn About Loss, this story was so much better, focusing on Tessa and Catarina’s lives as nurses during WWII. We’re back on the right track. Not my favorite, but I did enjoy this one! I’m beginning to realize I’m most excited for the stories that revolve around The Last Hours characters/TID kids. I want more!

Audiobook Review: ‘Learn About Loss’

I’m disappointed to say that Learn About Loss is my least favorite of the stories so far. It’s forgettable and honestly feels unnecessary.

Audiobook Review: ‘Every Exquisite Thing’

After Cast Long Shadows, it has been nice staying within the same time period. This story focuses on Anna Lightwood and I have already fallen so in love with her.

Audiobook Review: ‘Son of the Dawn’

I’ve fallen a bit behind with Ghosts of the Shadow Market novella releases, but that just means I can read multiple stories at once, and post multiple reviews back to back!

Spoilers for The Mortal Instruments & The Infernal Devices series.
If you haven’t finished both series, don’t read this short story and don’t read my review! 🙂 (No spoilers for Dark Artifices series.)

Audiobook Review: ‘Love and Other Words’

This is only the second book I’ve read by the author duo Christina Lauren, but they are now my go to for romance/contemporary books! I loved their YA book, Autoboyography, and also I loved this romance novel! I was worried it might be too cheesy, but it was written so well with such a good story!

Title: Love and Other Words
Author: Christina Lauren
