it was amazing
bookshelves: 2012

There is no other book like this, but I'm ecstatic that two more are coming! I loved that Emma Townsend is quiet and a reader. She's self-conscious and uncertain, but she's clearly full of talent and not afraid to speak up and speak out when necessary.

Her life before discovering Jane Eyre was already pretty intense, but afterwards, it's shocking and spell-binding, and absolutely amazing.
I love, love, LOVED the dual nature of this book and all its breath-taking, tension-building Gothic moments. But I also loved Gray and all the trapping of a sweet (and sexy!) YA romance.

It's been too long since I've read Jane Eyre, and I think, once I've gone back to reread that classic, I will appreciate A BREATH OF EYRE even more as the cleverly crafted and beautifully written homage that it is. It's truly a modern-day classic.
