Waiting on Wednesday: A Breath of Eyre

This is a weekly meme hosted by Jill from Breaking the Spine.  "Waiting on Wednesday" spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.


A Breath of Eyre by Eve Marie Mont
Pub. Date: April 1, 2012


Goodreads says, "Emma Townsend has always believed in stories—the ones she reads voraciously, and the ones she creates in her head. Perhaps it’s because she feels like an outsider at her exclusive prep school, or because her stepmother doesn’t come close to filling the void left by her mother’s death. And her only romantic prospect—apart from a crush on her English teacher—is Gray Newman, a long-time friend who just adds to Emma’s confusion. But escape soon arrives in an old leather-bound copy of Jane Eyre…  Reading of Jane’s isolation sparks a deep sense of kinship. Then fate takes things a leap further when a lightning storm catapults Emma right into Jane’s body and her nineteenth-century world. As governess at Thornfield, Emma has a sense of belonging she’s never known—and an attraction to the brooding Mr. Rochester. Now, moving between her two realities and uncovering secrets in both, Emma must decide whether her destiny lies in the pages of Jane’s story, or in the unwritten chapters of her own."


*Jane Eyre is one of my favorite classics and I love the idea of waking up one day in your favorite book.  Plus, Eve Marie Mont is a local high school English teacher. It doesn't get any better than that!

  1. Fantastic pick! I can't wait to read this one either. A Breath of Eyre was going to be my WoW pick this week until I saw the new Gallagher Girls book. I really like the idea of a modern girl ending up in Jane Eyre's life.

  4. Oooo this one sounds all interesting and complex! I like that she's going to have to make a decision between staying in Jane's story and creating her own, the answer seems simple I think (wouldn't you want to choose your own story?) but I bet it's going to be way more complicated than that:) Awesome pick Christina!
