“And for England. We’re really sorry for what we’re about to do to your history.”

Nah, y’all should be apologizing for ruining my life.

(╥﹏╥) (╥﹏╥) (╥﹏╥) (╥﹏╥)


Alright.

Where do I begin??

My Lady Jane, had an engaging plot, intriguing world, delightful characters, and A+++++++++ comedy. It is written by three lovely authors: Jodi Meadows, Brodi Ashton, and Cynthia Hand. To be frank, it feels like one person wrote it. I keep forgetting the fact that three people had written this. I bet you $100 to spot the distinction and claim which author had written what part because….there is literally no difference in the writing style. It’s absolutely perfect, fun and easy to follow.

It’s safe to assume that majority of you have at least heard of or came across the names of these historical figures:

Bloody Mary I
○Jane Grey
○Edward VI
○Elizabeth I
○Henry VIII

What is the point of you mentioning this, you say??? Well, My Lady Jane, revolves around real historical figures. Luckily, you don’t need to any additional background info to go into this book. It’s pretty basic but if you somehow find yourself lost then I suggest googling researching it then 🙂

Buuuuuuuuuuuut

“And for England. We’re really sorry for what we’re about to do to your history.”

(Yeah, I used this quote twice. Sue me!)

I literally dived into this book expecting to learn some facts about history and I don’t know have my life changed or something but then BAAMMM!! People were turning into animals left and right. Guys, I had nooooooo clue what WAS going on. This book is about real historical figures but here’s the thing. Everything is different.. The authors decided to add a fantasy twist.

You see, these individuals are called Eðian. They have the ability to switch between two different forms: human and animal. They are pretty much shape-shifters. In this fictional world, Eðians are hated and looked down upon.

Gifford (he prefers to go by G) is one of the main MC’s and well…..he’s a horse. He is the Duke’s son and ends up in an arranged marriage with Jane, another of our main MC’s. Jane, is literally ME. All she wants to do is just read and read and read and YOU GUESSED IT?? REAAAAAD. Also, I’m pretty sure everyone will no doubt connect with Jane because reading is her passion (Cough Cough, what a surprise, so is mine!) and her ability to never stop promoting everyone to read is entertaining.

For example:

“Armies aren’t very good about carrying libraries with them. I can’t imagine why. We’d fight so much less if everyone would just sit down and read”

In other words:

Choose the book life.

Then, we have Edward VI, the king and our last main MC. He suffers from this dreadful disease which is killing him. Like the poor guy never reached first base with anyone. He’s never been able to go out and do things a normal teenage boy would do. Also, he’s Jane’s cousin.

Anyway.

I loved Jane and G. They are OTP. I shipped them a little bit too hard but who can blame me??? They are just so cute *squeals*

Now guys, the reason why I loved them so much is because of the banter between Jane and G or more like her horse jokes.

Obviously, I have to share it. How EVER am I suppose to convince you to read this ??

“No horse jokes,” he said.
“My lord, I apologize for the horse joke. If you put down the book—unharmed!—I will give you a carrot.”
He brandished the book at her. “Was that a horse joke?”
“Neigh.”
“Was that a horse joke?”

OR

“Very funny, my lady. And that reminds me”—he pointed a finger at her—“no horse jokes.”
He was making it too easy. “Ah, my lord, why the long face?”
“That’s it!”

OKAY, ONE MORE!!

“I’m so hungry I could eat a horse. Oh. Sorry, G. Not you, of course.”

If you didn’t laugh, chuckled or at least smiled then buddy what’s wrong with your sense of humor?? C’mon, it was hilarious. Admit it. There’s no shame.

Alright.

Although, there’s a lot of things going on and I want to address them BUT I don’t want to spoil it. This is all I’m going to leave you off with. Also, I advise you to not open this book in a public place. You will have a difficult time containing your laughter. Trust me, I embarrassed the crap out of myself countless times in the subway.

I recommend this book to anyone who just needs a good laugh and a funny cheesy plot to read. If this is something you’d dig then this book is practically calling you. Pick it up!!
