First Line Fridays is a weekly feature hosted by Hording Books.
This week’s FLF book is the second book from a series I adore. Yes, I’m talking about My Plain Jane which comes out soon (June 26! I’m so excited 🤩🤩🤩) It’s a re-telling of sorts of the classic Jane Eyre. I highly recommend it to those of you looking for a light and funny read.
Anyway, onto FLF…
“You may think you know the story.”
Here’s the summary from Goodreads:
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.
I had the chance to read this in advance courtesy of the good people at HarperTeen/HarperCollins and Edelweiss. Here’s the link to my review if you want to know more about what I think of MPJ.
So, what’s the first line of your current read today? I’d love to hear from you.
