All Things Jane...


In celebration of the new Jane Eyre film which FINALLY opens in my area of the world TODAY, I'm excited to launch a blog event celebrating all things Jane Eyre-related that I take a notion in my head to discuss. :)

The first thing you should know is that there is no set schedule for this event. If I created a schedule 1) I'd stress myself out trying to keep up with it and 2) nothing would ever got posted and 3) the posts wouldn't be a surprise! And who doesn't love the idea of Jane Eyre surprise posts?! *wink*

So this April (and possibly into May...possibly forever...who knows?!), you can look forward to reviews of film adaptations of the novel, my first ever "classic" book review (you have no idea how intimidating that thought is!), a couple of guest posts, and reviews of books and movies "inspired by" Jane Eyre (in my mind, anyway). :)

I'll be adding a button to the sidebar for easy access to the "All Things Jane" posts. Speaking of buttons, many thanks to my friend Lori for designing the Jane buttons for me! :)

If you have any suggestions, or you're interested in contributing a guest post, let me know in the comments or shoot me an e-mail (address is found on my profile page).

WAY cool! And I love the button.

I'm so excited! :)

And jealous, because the movie is not playing in my area (yet, anyway). Every time my mom sees the trailer on TV, she calls for me to come watch it. And then I whine about how who knows when I'll get to see it?? :)

This sounds like lots of fun! I love Jane Eyre...and I am so sad that this movie doesn't seem to be playing within 100 miles of me :( how is this possible?! I've loved this book since high school and even painted my own version of Jane :) look forward to your reviews!

@Juju - Thanks! I was so excited when Lori emailed me the blog buttons - she did a great job!

@Kristin - Yay, glad you're excited too! :) Hang in there, I'm hopeful that this movie will blow into TONS of theaters in the next few weeks!

@Traxy - AMEN to that. :) So true.

@Heather - Thank you for your enthusiasm, and thanks for stopping by the blog! I don't think we've "met" online before...? Anyway, I do hope you'll come back and chime in with your thoughts on all things JE-related, and that the movie opens in your area soon!

@Joanne - Thanks, my friend! :)
