4 Reasons to Preorder My Lady Jane Immediately + Giveaway

5.11.2016
My Lady Jane by Cynthia Hand, Brodi Ashton, and Jodi Meadows
Expected Publication: June 7th, 2016 by HarperTeen
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 gets to be Queen of England.

Like that could go wrong.


#1. The Authors
I have not made it a secret over the years that I love Jodi Meadows and everything she writes. Incarnate was one of the first ARCs I ever read, and I absolutely fell in love with the story, even when it made my heart hurt. Which happened a lot. The Orphan Queen was very different but still awesome. This? This is in a whole 'nother ball park but IT WORKS.  And Brodi Ashton? She brings the emotions too in her Everneath series. Cynthia Hand wrote the Unearthly series, which I'm sure you've heard about, plus a heart-wrenching book called The Last Time We Say Goodbye that I haven't been able to bring myself to read yet simply because I am not ready for the sobfest that will turn into. Clearly they are each amazing authors in their own right, but bring all of them together? IT BECOMES MAGIC. MAGIC, I TELL YOU.

#2. The Humor
No, seriously. I laughed out loud more than once. There's a really unique kind of humor in this book and the narrative. I am definitely a sucker for the dry and aggressive sarcasm we see a lot in YA, but this was a more fun and light kind of humor that was really . . . relaxing, for lack of a better word. (It definitely felt like a breath of fresh air but I feel like that term might be overused and annoying now? IS IT? I DON'T KNOW. SOMEONE SHOULD TELL ME.)

#3. Ferrets
I don't know why I was surprised. I shouldn't have been. Either way, PRE-ORDER MY LADY JANE TO FIND OUT ALL ABOUT THE FERRETS. Also, there is a ferret on the spine. At least there was. Hopefully it's on the finished copy.

#4. Lady Jane Grey, Book-Lover Extraordinaire
Okay, yeah, the ferret-ness was awesome. But the real star of the show is Jane Grey. My Lady Jane is told from three different perspectives. Jane, G, Jane's soon-to-be husband, and Edward, Jane's cousin and closest friend. And while they all have their own appeal and I love them all, Jane is so easy to connect to. She's fierce and fun. They keep trying to marry her off but she's far more interested in her books and certainly not in being a wife or a queen. I really think she's a character that everyone is going to enjoy.

So? What are you waiting for? Find My Lady Jane on Amazon, B&N, and The Book Depository. Just go. GO NOW.

Buuuut . . . I'm also going to give away a preorder of My Lady Jane! International as long as The Book Depository ships to you.
