My Lady Jane by Cynthia Hand, Brodi Ashton and Jodi Meadows 🐴
Synopsis of the book: “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.” 🐴
Let’s start right from the beginning .. So I knew NOTHING about Lady Jane and her story which says something because I love history and historical figures like that but I’m very glad that I got to know about her by this book although it’s an altered version of what actually happened and I can’t deny that I like it better than what actually happened in the past 🙄 I know so many people are against the whole “changing” history thing but I don’t think anybody can deny how amusing this book is.
History will always be the same and let’s face it .. Sometimes it suck because of all the unfairness that happened in the past although it helped shape up our life and future but don’t you ever wonder about what would have happened to those in the past if things were different? Anyway back to the book .. it was absolutely fun to read because of the way the authors wrote the book and the plot twist in this book is just .. Magical 🔮 You can’t help but love the characters especially Jane because you’re like SHE IS ME!! 📚 There were some very sweet, funny and weird moments but I loved it all and I love how things ended 💖 Everything is just perfect ✨
Yes, I did cry while reading the actual story of Lady Jane Grey because it broke my heart 😭 My mistake guys is that I read about her after finishing the book so yeah I totally think of Lady Jane as the Lady Jane from the book and I’m like MYYYY BABYYY 😂😭 and after seeing “The Execution of Lady Jane Grey” painting I kinda stopped functioning 😔 but everything happens for a reason and I’m very glad that even after 462 years people still remember her
