Book Review | My Lady Jane – Cynthia Hand, Brodi Ashton, Jodi Meadows

My lady jane book with Jess Pierron

Told in multiple points of view, My Lady Jane, brings its readers the tragic tale of Lady Jane Grey – except this telling isn’t like the one in the history books. Join King Edward, Lady Jane, and her half-horse betrothed Gifford (call him G) on their quest for a better England before it’s off with their heads!

It’s been a long time since I’ve read a book that brought me genuine JOY. I can easily say My Lady Jane was the cheekiest, wittiest, most clever book I have ever read. As of right now, it qualifies as my favorite read of 2020. The combined brilliance of these authors made for one heck of a ride. Cynthia Hand, Brodi Ashton, and Jodi Meadows were able to take such a tragic piece of history and bring sparkling comedic relief without being insensitive or too cheesy – not to mention how difficult it must be to co-write not just a story, but 500 page novel!

The audiobook by HarperCollins was a gem as well. Narrator Katherine Kellgren was beyond brilliant in her vocal delivery. She brought passion, enthusiasm, and a dash of whimsy to this project. I typically prefer reading books versus audiobooks however My Lady Jane audiobook is the exception to my rule.

He wanted to tell her she’d have more room if she’d just get rid of her books, but he supposed that in her case, it would be like telling a mother she’d have more room if she threw out her children.
