What a funny introduction to the book. Normally I don't like being talked to, as the reader, but this was refreshing and funny!


Rachel Joy Oh my goodness gracious me ;)!
I love the dedication: "For everyone who knows there was enough room for Leonardo DiCaprio on that door."

There totally was, tee hee!!

This book. Pretty funny! lol. How's progress? I'm about 20% through. A bomb was just dropped. Actually 2! :O


Dawn Michelle | 2729 comments Sigh.
I am joining this one. Because clearly I do not have nearly enough books to read on my own shelves! LOL
I keep seeing Elyse's updates on this and I cannot help it - I love Lady Jane Gray's story and this sounds like a hilarious spoof of her life. And I am apparently in a real fantasy mood. So even though its late, I am diving in. I will be starting tomorrow. :-)
[I totally blame you Elyse! LOL]

Shelby Suderman | 1753 comments I'm laughing pretty hard. Someone's drunk and contemplating something. (view spoiler)


Rachel Joy I am on the third chapter, but will be doing some serious reading tomorrow and this weekend. Promise!

OMGOSH I am loving this book. It is so freaking hilarious!!! I blew through 4 chapters before I even realized it, laughing all the way. This is going to be a good one for me.

I still feel bad about RPO. I truly wanted to like that book. But this one is so awesome - I am an absolute fan! ;-)

I finished and it was delightful! And I was thinking how good it would be on audio!! So I plan on listening to My Plain Jane, we'll do another buddy read over the summer with the second one! :)


Dawn Michelle | 2729 comments Elyse, I am loving the audio!!
I am hoping to be done tomorrow - today's plans got scratched by life. Sigh. SO rude to break into my reading time! LOL


Dawn Michelle | 2729 comments Okay....
So I still like this quite a bit, but it is dragging a bit. I am only on chapter 15 and am [sigh] a bit bored. There are still hilarious spots, but it really needs to pick up. I really thought I could finish this in a couple of days and I just cannot. Sigh.

It picks up again!


Dawn Michelle | 2729 comments Elyse wrote: "It picks up again!"

Okay. That is good. I think I just thought I could blow through this and I cannot and so I have to let go of that expectation and just go with the flow of it.

Shelby Suderman | 1753 comments The audio was great. I really hope I can get ahold of the audiobook for My Plain Jane once it's out!

Rachel Joy I wish I could listen to this. I bet it's great.
Anyway, I'm finally halfway through and still really loving it!
I can't wait for My Plain Jane!

Who plans on getting a hold of My Plain Jane when it releases or soon after? It releases June 26.


message 29: by Shelby (new) - added it

Shelby Suderman | 1753 comments I'd like to, so long as I can get it in audio from somewhere. I’m hoping Scribd will get it soon after it comes out but they only got t the first one recently so I don’t know how long I’ll have to wait.


Dawn Michelle | 2729 comments I'd like to as well, but I am with Shelby on needing it on Audio. So if it comes out that way, I am in if we all want to buddy read that. I really enjoyed the first one.

I just reserved my copy of My Plain Jane when it comes out next week. Any ideas on about when this buddy read will be happening? Personally, I would be able to start in July or August.

I would prefer mid-late August so that most of my HP listening is done. ;) Like sometime between 17th-20th or something to start. My libraries don't have it in physical or e-book form so I've got to do audio.

Shelby Suderman | 1753 comments Ok. I can do that.

I'm only about 2 hours in, I didn't manage to start until late last night. But I'll be able to listen to about 3 hours today between my commute, grocery shopping, and cooking! It's already delightfully hilarious!

"Nevertheless, she [Charlotte] persisted." haha these ladies are so witty!

Shelby Suderman | 1753 comments '"I've never met anyone named Nicholas."

Alexander knew it was a lie. Lots of people were named Nicholas.'

Also, that perfect Princess Bride reference.
