I re-read the description of this book so many times, trying to figure out what it was all about. But when I started reading it last week, I still didn’t have a solid idea of what the premise of the book was, or even what genre it was. And I couldn’t wait to find out!

I can say after reading it, there is definitely a reason for the mysterious book description. The story itself is full of some wonderful mystery elements as well and just so, SO much more!

I’m not including my review, because it is nearly impossible to say anything about this book without including spoilers. Instead, I’m posting the mood board I created while reading, which I hope will help get you guys even more excited for this incredible novel without giving anything away.

I will say that Jane Unlimited is brilliantly written, unlike anything I’ve ever read before, and a definite five-star read!

About Jane Unlimited

32991569Title: Jane Unlimited

Author: Kristin Cashore

Pub. Date: September 19, 2017

Publisher: Kathy Dawson Books

Pages: 464

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.

      Thank you! I love doing aesthetics while I read. It’s so much fun. I can’t wait to hear what you think of it. It’s so different from anything I’ve ever read, and I mean that in only the best way. This book is incredible! <3

  1. Kristin says:

    I already wanted to read this book but now I a truly sold! The aesthetic you came up with is really beautiful and all I the lovely umbrellas make me so curious!

    • KrystiYAandWine says:

      Yay! I’m so happy to hear that! It is such a great book! I can’t wait for you to read it. The umbrellas are such a fun element in this story. I could gush about this book forever, but not without spoilers, so mums the word! 🙂

  2. bookprincessreviews says:

    Um that mood board has me so inspired to read this. So much love. Also how do I get that book case full of rainbow books? I’m so very intrigued by this and how mysterious it is. Fantastic way to keep me intrigued enough to read it, Krysti!!

    • KrystiYAandWine says:

      Woohoo! I love, love, LOVED it, Mandy! I can’t wait to chat about it with you. That rainbow bookcase is incredible, but honestly it has nothing on the library in this book. It is stunning! Thanks so much, love! <3<3<3

  3. Sophie @ Blame Chocolate says:

    I agree with you, Krysti, the blurb doesn’t really give you anything too specific, so it’s hard to imagine what the story will be about. I’m glad that it all makes sense after reading it, though! 🙂
    Also, I love love love your aesthetic! Just so pretty and a bit eerie, Victorian with a dash of magical realism. Super cool! <3

    • KrystiYAandWine says:

      I was so confused after I read it, but after I started reading it was just like, Oh! This is why! It’s such a neat book. I’ve really never read anything like this. Thanks smooch, Sophie! <3<3<3

    • KrystiYAandWine says:

      I totally agree!!! I usually just skim reviews of books that I haven’t read yet but intend to. Otherwise I feel like their words are in my mind too much while I’m reading, and it impacts my own opinion.

  4. Tiana (The Book Raven) says:

    This sounds and looks like magical realism to me… and that makes me want to read this book all the more! I’m in love with Kristin Cashore’s writing and so this book is definitely at the top of my to-buy list!!! I need this book in my hands ASAP!!!

    • KrystiYAandWine says:

      Thanks, Cristina! The description is really vague! I was so confused when we picked it up at YALLWEST. But there really is a reason for it. I can’t wait to hear what you think!

  5. LairOfBooks says:

    That aesthetic board Krysti!!!! <3 <3 <3 I have an arc of Jane I'm dyinnnnng to get to, I know a smidge about the premise but have purposely stayed away from anything on this book lol. So glad you enjoy it 🙂

    • KrystiYAandWine says:

      Thanks, Lilly! Oh my goodness! I cannot wait for you to read it! It’s so amazing! This book is impossible not to spoil if you do a full review. Anything you say other than it’s one of a kind and beautifully written will entirely spoil it.

      • LairOfBooks says:

        haha! I believe you, I’ve come across a few Booktubers that have also went the route of a short vague review which really only heightens my curiosity lol!

      • KrystiYAandWine says:

        Oh, really?! That’s funny. I just could not figure out a way to review this one without totally spoiling it for everyone. I can’t wait for you to read it. It is really something else, and I mean that in a really good way!

  6. Jackie B @ Death by Tsundoku says:

    How intriguing! I haven’t read anything by Cashore yet, but Graceling is high on the light (as so many other seem to be). I love the intrigue and magic we experience from the synopsis. I am certain curious. Thank you for not posting your review so we can all be surprised!!

    I love the aesthetic board. I should try these sometime. Do you make these for all the books you read?

    • KrystiYAandWine says:

      Graceling is wonderful. Part of why it is wonderful though is because it included a lot of elements that have since become big tropes in YA. It’s also really well-written, but I would be curious to see your reaction reading it for the first time now.

      I think this book is a lot the same in that it’s doing stuff that other authors aren’t doing right now, and I’m interested to see if we start seeing things from this book becoming popular tropes also.

      And thanks! I don’t for all of the books I read, but I try to do it for most of the ARCs. It’s fun. 🙂

      • Jackie B @ Death by Tsundoku says:

        Oooh, that’s an interesting perception. Perhaps Cashore is just are the fore of YA writing innovations? That makes her an author to watch out for, for sure! And it would be interesting to read Jane Unlimited now, as well, to see where YA lit goes in the future.

        Well, now I have to read ALL her books. But I’m even more excited than I was before. Yay!

        I’ll have to think about making an aesthetic board. It *looks* like a lot of fun! And it’s really pretty to look at. 😀

      • KrystiYAandWine says:

        I truly think that she is, and I can’t wait to watch and see what happens with the genre after this book.

        Let me know if you read them! I’d love to discuss them with you. 🙂
