Book Review: My Plain Jane: Cynthia Hand

Dear reader I couldn’t sleep so I finished reading “My Plain Jane” book number two in “the Lady Janies” series by Cynthia Hand, Brodi Ashton, and Jodi Meadows. I picked up this book in hardcover edition from Barnes and Noble because I really like the first book in the series so I wanted to see how this book would be. My personal review of the book is as follows:

I personally really liked the first half of the story and the funny dialogue(some of which really did literally make me laugh out loud 😊) however from about the middle of the book to the end the book really lost me.

I don’t understand why certain paranormal aspects were added/necessary to the storyline, I feel like the (for lack of a better way of phrasing it) the magical elements were so much better woven into the storyline/made way more sense in the first book in series than the paranormal elements were added into this one(in my personal opinion). I also didn’t personally like how focused on love “Jane” was (I know that they try to explain it in the book however it didn’t seem to fit in with what I know of her personality historically).

I also didn’t personally understand the ending. Overall I personally rate this book a 4 and half out of 10 because of how friendship was shown in the book. Happy reading dear reader 😊.  Please like and share this review if you enjoyed it doing so helps me to get approved by publishers and authors for future books and helps others to find my reviews 💜.
