My Lady Jane
Cynthia Hand, Brodi Ashton, Jodi Meadows
The comical, fantastical, romantical, (not) entirely true story of Lady Jane Grey. In My Lady Jane, coauthors Cynthia Hand, Brodi Ashton, and Jodi Meadows have created a one-of-a-kind fantasy in the tradition of The Princess Bride, featuring a reluctant king, an even more reluctant queen, a noble steed, and only a passing resemblance to actual history—because sometimes history needs a little help.
At sixteen, Lady Jane Grey is about to be married off to a stranger and caught up in a conspiracy to rob her cousin, King Edward, of his throne. But those trifling problems aren’t for Jane to worry about. Jane gets to be Queen of England.
4.5 laughing-my-head-off stars
Triple POVs, lots of funny dialogues, the cutest love story, and events that take place when you leave a few teenagers to rule a country 😂😂😂
Things I liked about this book:
• Its hilarious. Like I was literally laughing so hard that I fell of my bed.
• Jane is so cool! She loves books *shrugs* She kind of reminds me Hermione Granger now that I think of it *ponders*
• I know nothing about British history, but I still found this book interesting, and outright ridiculous. But awesome.
• The element of magic. Oh my God 😂😂😂😂
• 3 people and one book could be messy, but not this one. Its neat.
• The midlogue. Is that even a word? Its funny af.
• G (and I will call him ‘G’) is actually super cute. I kinda hated him in the beginning but then he became my bae ❤
• That remake of “Shall I compare thee” 😂😂😂
Things I disliked about this book:
• I dont know why, maybe this is just me, but the Edward parts were boring. I had to skip portions!! That boring.
• Slow beginning. For like 3 pages.
• Sometimes the “narrator’s notes” became unnecessary and I was like, Oh c’mon just continue the damn story.
If you are looking for a light read with lots of action and magic and laughter and twisted history- this is your book.
