On My Shelf: Jane Steele by Lyndsay Faye


On My Shelf is an awesome feature hosted by Teresa at Readers Live A Thousand Lives that anyone can join. The idea is to spotlight a book from your TBR shelf; it's a fun way to discuss books with fellow bloggers and, with their help, decide which books are must-reads... and which ones can wait a while longer.


I grabbed this book based on pure cover lust. I think it's so gorgeous with its deceitfully charming cover that, upon closer inspection, is actually kind of nefarious. Inspired by Charlotte Bronte's Jane EyreJane Steele is the tale of a heroic serial killer. It sounds amazing, and I need to know what you know about this book!

Have you read Jane Steele? What are your thoughts? 
Do I drop everything and start reading -- or put it back on my shelf?

Hope everyone has a great weekend! See you next week!

  2. I read it and loved it. It was one of my 2016 favorites. I was afraid it would just be all about a girl murdering a ton of people. The first sentence didn't help ease that feeling. "Of all the many murders, committed for love and better reasons, the first was the most important." Like how many people have you murdered girlfriend? I'm happy to say that it was so much more then that! I really enjoyed it. :)

  7. I want to read this one too! It feels like years ago since it published and I was so excited about it in the months leading to its publication, but then I never read it. -_- Perhaps I'll borrow it from the library this summer. :D I hope you enjoy it if/when you read it!

    Have a lovely week. =)
