Waiting on Wednesday 8/25

Wednesday, August 25, 2010



Waiting on Wednesday is weekly event hosted by Jill from Breaking the Spine and specifically spotlights upcoming novels we can't wait to read. As always, there are some amazing upcoming books, but this week I am particularly excited for...

Title: Jane
Author: April Lindner
Release Date: October 11, 2010




Forced to drop out of an esteemed East Coast college after the sudden death of her parents, Jane Moore takes a nanny job at Thornfield Park, the estate of Nico Rathburn, an iconic rock star on the brink of a huge comeback.

Practical and independent, Jane reluctantly becomes entranced by her magnetic and brooding employer, and finds herself in the midst of a forbidden romance. But there's a mystery at Thornfield, and Jane's much-envied relationship with Nico is tested by a torturous secret from his past.

Taken from GoodReads.


This book is a re-imagining of the classic story, Jane Eyre, set in modern times for a new generation of young readers. While I often hesitate to read re-imagined classics because I love the originals so much, I think this sounds fun. I love the simplicity of the cover, and I'm interested to see how Jane spins this story for a fresh take and a modern time.
