Release Date: April 11, 2017
Genre: Young Adult Retelling (with a hint of paranormal)
I really liked this book! It's a retelling of Jane Eyre (which is pretty cool) with a hint of paranormal. Admittedly, I haven't read Jane Eyre (i'll go hide in the corner now) but if it's anything like this then I may dive into the classic and check it out. With that, this is a suspenseful and addicting read. I read it fairly quickly even though I have been extremely busy, and didn't want to put it down even when I had to. The plot will hook you the minute you start it. The story-line is very engrossing as well. It's about a teenager named Janie who is forced to live with the Rochester's following her parent's death. And it this isn't hard enough, some sinister things are going on within the house she lives in that question Janie's sanity. Sounds good, right? Well, it is!
Normally, this isn't the type of book I read. I tend to stay away from retelling's because they are (normally) nothing like the original. Also, I don't find many that are good enough to hold my attention for long. This certainly changed after I read this novel though. At first, I picked up the book based on the cover (it's really cool) and then when I read the blurb I thought to myself "okay, this could be really interesting", and I wasn't disappointed in the slightest. I hope the author continues with these retelling's because I will devour them every time based on reading this one!
