My Lady Jane

Book: My Lady Jane
Author: Cynthia Hand, Brodi Ashton, Jodi Meadows

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 is about to become the Queen of England.-Goodreads

Review: If you are looking for a cute and quirky historical tale with a supernatural flare, this book might be for you. Keep in mind that it is not historically accurate but the authors have fun with the narrative. My only disappointment with this is that I didn't laugh or even chuckle when reading it. Overall, cute read. 

Grade: 3/5
