Book Club: A Breath of Eyre

This month's Book Club was a retelling of Jane Eyre (which is essentially a retelling of Beauty and the Beast, which is Jenel's favorite fairy tale). It was also Jenel's birthday month and her time to host! I must disclose that I LOVE Jane Eyre; I first read it when I had been in New York not for very long and I fell in love with Jane and Mr. Rochester. So many parts of the book I underlined. I love Jane and her strong character and her good nature. I love that she does the right things even though it's hard. And I love Mr. Rochester. I know a lot of girls swoon for Mr. Darcy, and he is pretty swoon-able, but for me Mr. Rochester takes the cake.

We had a great discussion about the book and all the things we liked and didn't like. I must say that I really love having two writers in the group because they see so many things that I would never pick up on. The book is a cute read, but I would recommend the original Jane Eyre any day of the week and twice on Sundays over this book.
