Waiting on Wednesday – A Breath of Eyre

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine, and specifically spotlights upcoming novels we can't wait to read. This week’s choice is:

Title: A Breath of Eyre by Eve Marie Mont
Publisher: Kensington
Publish Date: April 1, 2012
Genre: Historical
Goodreads Summary: Emma Townsend has always believed in stories—the ones she reads voraciously, and the ones she creates in her head. Perhaps it’s because she feels like an outsider at her exclusive prep school, or because her stepmother doesn’t come close to filling the void left by her mother’s death. And her only romantic prospect—apart from a crush on her English teacher—is Gray Newman, a long-time friend who just adds to Emma’s confusion. But escape soon arrives in an old leather-bound copy of Jane Eyre…

Reading of Jane’s isolation sparks a deep sense of kinship. Then fate takes things a leap further when a lightning storm catapults Emma right into Jane’s body and her nineteenth-century world. As governess at Thornfield, Emma has a sense of belonging she’s never known—and an attraction to the brooding Mr. Rochester. Now, moving between her two realities and uncovering secrets in both, Emma must decide whether her destiny lies in the pages of Jane’s story, or in the unwritten chapters of her own…
I have really been enjoying historical fiction lately, especially the ones that have some supernatural element to them. A Breath of Eyre sounds so awesome and I love the cover! This is exactly my kind of book and is pretty much a must read for me....

I'm really into historical reads lately toon. Cleopatra's Moon just came on my radar- thought I'd pass it along! :)

I'm really looking forward to this one. I love Jane Austen spin-off novels, and this is very similar.
