Brightly Burning Reviews
I've been on such a YA Sci-fi kick lately & this is one I can't stop thinking about! *eeeK* NEED all sci-fi books in my life <3!

As a huge fan of Jane Eyre, I was really excited to read a YA retelling of the story. So, I went into this book with high expectations, AND THIS BOOK EXCEEDS ALL OF THOSE EXPECTATIONS! I AM AN EMOTIONAL MESS! I WANT TO HUG THIS BOOK FOREVER!!!! THIS WAS A FREAKING ROLLER COASTER!!!
Okay, I let me get back to the actual review.
One of the things I enjoyed the most about this book was the way the author took Jane Eyre and put such a refreshing and interesting twist to it. Even though I could predic ...more
JANE! EYRE! IN! SPACE!
and it is exactly that. Just as clever, just as heartfelt, just as romantic, with a stellar cast of characters and inventive world building. Just enough science fiction to make this an utterly delightful space romance.
I love Jane Eyre, so getting to read a retelling was a treat.
I do think this book hovers more around 3.5 star personally, but I really loved it and enjoyed my time reading it so much I had to bump it up.
This had all of the elements of Jane Eyre we know and love, but set aboard various space crafts. The twists and turns of the original story are all also present, and I just think Alexa Donne has done an awesome job with this one! Add it to your TBRs for May!

There are also many spaceships orbiting around Earth and lots of the have manes that can either rem ...more

I was super pumped to receive this advanced copy of Brightly Burning from HMH. I am so thankful I got the chance to read this before publication. Truly, I am so grateful for these opportunities. Even if I didn’t love it, I still want to give you all my thoughts and genuine feelings!
So, with that being said, I did like the book, but I didn’t love it. It’s probably just me, y’all. I had just finished The Illuminae Files recently, and those are so ...more
This was really fun!
RTC closer to publication. Thanks NetGalley and the publisher for the ARC!
I loved this book so much! I've never actaully read Jane Eyre but I'm aware of the storyline and I don't know if it follows it but I had such a great time with this book.
