Waiting on Wednesday

Waiting on Wenesday is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine. The purpose of WoW is to share upcoming releases that we are excited about. This summary is from goodreads.
"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.
Part irresistible romance and part darkly engrossing mystery, this contemporary retelling of the beloved classic Jane Eyre promises to enchant a new generation of readers."
As you may know (since I've mentioned it on multiply occasions), Jane Eyre is my favorite book. Why, you may ask, would you want to read a spin-off of your favorite book? Well, because I'm curious, plain and simple. I  am also incredibly optimistic when it comes to books, and I am hoping that this book will turn out much better than the Pride and Prejudice spin-offs that I've read lately. So, what book are you waiting for?


  1. I, too, LOVE Jane Eyre. So I was really excited to get my hands on an ARC. I thought it was wonderful. Stuck to the original plot pretty close, but still managed to be new and fun and totally awesome. Great WOW

  2. I am also wary of spin-offs because they tend to spin off a little too far until they barely resemble the original! I do love Jane Eyre, so I think I'll wait to see some reviews of this one first and if they're good then I may pick it up.

  3. This book does look great. I've seen it around a lot and I love the cover. Great choice!
