Waiting on Wednesday: Back at Last!

Nothing like a Waiting on Wednesday post to get me back into the swing of things. Sorry this is going up a little late in the day. But it's still Wednesday, so here we go.  Today's pick is:

A Breath of Eyre by Eve Marie Mont

About the Book (from "A scholarship student at an exclusive prep school, Emma Townsend feels like an outsider. Her stepmother doesn't come close to filling the void left by her mother's death. And her only romantic prospect - apart from a crush on her English teacher - is Gray Newman, a long-time friend who just adds to Emma's confusion. "Escape" comes in the old leather-bound copy of Jane Eyre that Emma receives as a gift. Then a lightning storm catapults Emma right into Jane's body and her nineteenth-century world. As governess at Thornfield, Emma experiences a sense of belonging she's never felt before, and a growing attraction to the brooding Mr. Rochester. Now, moving between two realities and uncovering secrets in both, Emma must decide whether her destiny lies in the pages of Jane's story, or in the unwritten chapters of her own..."

You know me, I love anything that makes an old story fresh.  And that goes double for things like Jane Austen and the Jane Eyre.  This is the first book of a proposed trilogy (I think?), and I'm really excited because the third one is going to be about The Phantom of the Opera.

And I know I gush about covers all the time, but I want that dress so bad.

The good news is, you don't have to wait too much longer to get your hands on this book.  A Breath of Eyre will be released on March 27, just a week away.  You can pre-order your copy now on Amazon though:
