Jane Eyre is the Jane of  January of the Heart. Wants. Books blog:

Oh dear readers, Ashley and I have been planning and plotting and considering which Jane to share with you this year.  You may recall 2019’s selection, Jane Austen’s Pride & Prejudice. This January, we’ll be passing our time with Jane Eyre, the titular character of Charlotte Bronte’s most famous work.  Why Jane in January you ask?  Well, we considered Austen in August but decided that was too limiting.  Jane in January accomplished our task last year and gave us many more Janes to choose from as authors, characters, and historical personages, so there you have it.  We like variety and options, especially in our reading lives.  Jane Eyre, much like the Bennett sisters, is a beloved literary character, so we had to narrow our options greatly, and finally selected the titles below from ten that made our short list.  (...)

So, if you want to read along with us this month, we’d love to be friends on Goodreads so you can track us in real time, and here’s what we’ll be sharing with you here, and when.

Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte ... January 7
Mr. Rochester by Sarah Shoemaker ... January 14
Wide Sargasso Sea by Jean Rhys ... January 21
Re Jane by Patricia Park ... January 28
