Jane Eyre Movie Trailer


And in the spirit of the Jane giveaway we've got going on, here is the trailer for the upcoming film adaptation of Jane Eyre. It stars Mia Wasikowska and Michael Fassbender and is set to release March 11th here in the U.S. I think it looks perfectly awesome and I'm so excited I can hardly wait. They've certainly adapted this story a number of times over the years and people tend to have definite opinions about their favorite version. Me, I get a little thrill with every one as it's just one of my favorite stories ever. So, who's going to go see it?

  1. So I was about to complain about how we don't need ANOTHER version, but that looks really, really good. :) The actress playing Jane seems excellent.

    My main problem with movie versions of JE are that they are too short. You really lose stuff when it's all condensed into a couple of hours.

    My favourite version is still the old BBC adaptation - a mini-series - from at least 25 years ago. Timothy Dalton as Rochester (*swoon*) and Zelah Clarke as Jane. To this day, I think she's the best Jane ever. God, I'm really showing my age here. I saw it when it was first on TV, I was about 10... Heh. ;)

    Thanks for sharing. Also, if you're interested in seeing Dalton and Clarke, here's a clip. Listen to the lovely music!

  2. I can't wait for this! I saw the PBS/BBC version they did a few years ago and it was okay, but I think Fassbender is going to be a great Rochester. Okay, maybe he's a little too good-looking but I'm not complaining!

  3. I saw this trailer last night and was all, "Oooh, I'm in!" I love Jane Eyre so much as a story. And I do love Mia Wasikowska. She's a really talented actress. Not to mention my deep and abiding love of costume drama.

    I'm SO in!

  7. I'm not sure how I feel about the actor playing Mr. Rochester but Mia looks like she'll pull of Jane Eyre gracefully. She certainly has that direct stare that Mr. Rochester likes, lol.

    I watched the trailer earlier today and I think it looks very interesting. I'm definitely going to see it. You know I'm a big fan of the most recent Masterpiece Theatre version. I loved Toby Stephens as Rochester and thought Ruth Wilson was a perfect Jane.

    This version looks like it's a bit more spooky than the others...it look's good, but I think the Masterpiece version is going to be hard to beat.

  18. Not sure I liked the actress in ALICE IN WONDERLAND, but I think she could be a better Jane than Alice. Looking forward to it.

  21. So excited to see "Jane Eyre" return to the big screen! I think that Mia Wasikowska will make a good Jane. Thanks for posting this trailer!

  22. The Jane Eyre 2006 DVD is my favorite adaptation. Ruth Wilson and Toby Stephens was spectacular in that version. It would be hard topping that but I'm looking forward to watching the 2011 film nonetheless. :)

Interview with Alexandra Bracken + Brightly Woven Giveaway!

I fell in love with the cover of Alexandra Bracken's debut novel--Brightly Woven--last fall and the scant synopses I could find at the time certainly piqued my interest. After managing to get my hands on an ARC, I found myself surprised and pleased with this unique fantasy. You can read my review here. As the release date approached, I invited Alex to participate in an interview and giveaway here on the site and, despite her crazy busy schedule, she kindly accepted. Enjoy! First things first: When did the idea for Brightly Wovenfirst hit you and what (if anything) did you know right off the bat? I remember the exact moment it hit me—what I was doing, who I was talking to, what song was playing on iTunes.  :)  I had just come back from Winter Break my sophomore year in college and was sitting on my bed chatting with my mom.  Sophomore year was pretty remarkable in terms of the insane weather that we had in Virginia (where I was in school) but it had also been a bizarre year in Arizon…

Blog Tour Giveaway | An Artless Demise by Anna Lee Huber

Today marks the release of An Artless Demise―the seventh installment in Anna Lee Huber's excellent Lady Darby mystery series. I'm happy to be participating in the blog tour with a giveaway courtesy of Berkley. This is a series I've enjoyed from the very beginning (you can read my review of the first book here). Be sure that Kiera and Gage are well worth your time, particularly if you are a fan of Deanna Raybourn or Tasha Alexander.

ABOUT THE BOOK Kiera’s return to London is anything but mundane after fleeing in infamy more than two years ago. While Kiera expected the whispers and murmurs inspired by her reappearance, she wasn’t prepared to receive a letter of blackmail, threatening to divulge the secrets of her past and implicating her in crimes she didn’t commit. A gang of body snatchers is arrested on suspicion of killing people from the streets and selling the bodies to medical schools, and Kiera is a perfect suspect for their crimes―after all, she was previously married…

E-book Alert | Life Without Friends by Ellen Emerson White

I have been waiting for this day for what feels like forever. If you've followed this blog for basically any length of time, you have heard me singing the praises of Ellen Emerson White. I am a devoted fan of her spectacular President's Daughter and Echo Company series. And you should read and own them and spread the good word immediately. But Life Without Friends. This book was the beginning for me. Beverly and Derek and Boston and the Public Gardens. From my review:
This book kind of ate me alive at fourteen, and I have reread it pretty much every year since. It has become what you might call a Monster Comfort Read. I have been buying up used copies of this previously out-of-print book for years now and sending them to readers I knew needed them. I am so delighted to let you know it's now available on Kindle for just $2.99 or free with Kindle Unlimited. And I really love the new Kindle cover (above left), while I will always be inordinately attached to the original cove…
