I’ve been going through a MAJOR reading slump… I’ve only finished 2 books this month. That isn’t to say I haven’t tried to read about a dozen or so.
I just haven’t found anything that has drawn me in for more than a few chapters. There are plenty of books I’m excited about, but seriously after like 50 pages I can’t seem to keep going.
I think Jane, Unlimited my be the book that breaks the pattern. I’ve heard that it’s complicated and weird and well written and that is just what I need right now!
Jane has lived an ordinary life, raised by her aunt Magnolia—an adjunct professor and deep sea photographer. Jane counted on Magnolia to make the world feel expansive and to turn life into an adventure. But Aunt Magnolia was lost a few months ago in Antarctica on one of her expeditions.
Now, with no direction, a year out of high school, and obsessed with making umbrellas that look like her own dreams (but mostly just mourning her aunt), she is easily swept away by Kiran Thrash—a glamorous, capricious acquaintance who shows up and asks Jane to accompany her to a gala at her family’s island mansion called Tu Reviens.
Jane remembers her aunt telling her: “If anyone ever invites to you to Tu Reviens, promise me that you’ll go.” With nothing but a trunkful of umbrella parts to her name, Jane ventures out to the Thrash estate. Then her story takes a turn, or rather, five turns. What Jane doesn’t know is that Tu Reviens will offer her choices that can ultimately determine the course of her untethered life. But at Tu Reviens, every choice comes with a reward, or a price.
Wish me luck!
