'Waiting on' Wednesday [7].

'Waiting on' Wednesday [WoW] is a weekly meme hosted by The Breaking Spine.

My WoW selection this week is:

A Breath of Eyre by Eve Marie Mont
Release date: 14th May 2012
Publisher: KTeen
Buy this book: Amazon UK

Synopsis [Amazon]
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...

I've been wanting to read the classics for a long time now, and it was the Classic Double Challenge that gave me the perfect excuse to do so!  This, as well as reading modern books that relate to the classic books in some way, like A Breath of Eyre, a book relating to the Jane Eyre novel. A gorgeous cover and intriguing synopsis. Why would you not want to read it?

I would love to know what your 'waiting on wednesday' selection is this week...
