From the Review Pile!

From the Review Pile May 30th 2013

From the Review Pile is a meme hosted by Stepping Out of the Page every Thursday.
The aim of this meme is to showcase books that you've received for review (or if you don't receive review books, any book that you own and really want to read/review) but haven't yet got around to reading, in order to give the book some extra publicity.

I know that a lot of you have a huge pile of books that you want to read/review, but it understandably takes a while to get around to reading them all - here you can give a book (or two!) some of the publicity that it deserves, even if you haven't read it yet!

I've been a little behind on my reading and reviewing lately well not really a little a lot. This last few months have kicked my butt. I blame it on the move. I don't blog as much or read as much as I used to but I'm working to change all that. I've kind of been a tv junkie, and taking the puppy to the park. 

This weeks Winner is....

Forced to drop out of an esteemed East Coast college after the sudden death of her parents, Jane Moore takes a nanny job at Thornfield Park, the estate of Nico Rathburn, a world-famous rock star on the brink of a huge comeback. Practical and independent, Jane reluctantly becomes entranced by her magnetic and brooding employer and finds herself in the midst of a forbidden romance. 

But there's a mystery at Thornfield, and Jane's much-envied relationship with Nico is soon tested by an agonizing secret from his past. Torn between her feelings for Nico and his fateful secret, Jane must decide: Does being true to herself mean giving up on true love?

An irresistible romance interwoven with a darkly engrossing mystery, this contemporary retelling of the beloved classic Jane Eyre promises to enchant a new generation of readers.

I've always been a fan of Jane Eyre however I've not read the book. Maybe because I love the movie so much. I do have it on my TBR list but I plan to read Jane first. I like the idea of a modern take on the classics. 

What's on your review pile?
