Calendar Girls: Meet Cute (Favorite Romantic Comedy)

Hello fellow bookworms and CGB Friends!

It is time for the February Calendar Girls post! I am excited to see what Flavia and Dani do with Calendar Girls for a while! For those that missed the announcement, Katie and I decided to take a little break from hosting since Katie got the well deserved job she’d worked so hard for, and I had been suffering from a major reading slump due to my weight loss journey. I am happy to say that I am reading again, and I am excited to ease myself back in to blogging! So, I will be participating in the CGB posts until one, or both of us, decides it is time to either take the reigns back, or join Flavia and Dani in co-hosting again. ❤

My Lady Jane by The Lady Janies

Synopsis: 

Edward (long live the king) is the King of England. He’s also dying, which is inconvenient, as he’s only sixteen and he’d much rather be planning for his first kiss than considering who will inherit his crown…

Jane (reads too many books) is Edward’s cousin, and far more interested in books than romance. Unfortunately for Jane, Edward has arranged to marry her off to secure the line of succession. And there’s something a little odd about her intended…

Gifford (call him G) is a horse. That is, he’s an Eðian (eth-y-un, for the uninitiated). Every day at dawn he becomes a noble chestnut steed—but then he wakes at dusk with a mouthful of hay. It’s all very undignified.

The plot thickens as Edward, Jane, and G are drawn into a dangerous conspiracy. With the fate of the kingdom at stake, our heroes will have to engage in some conspiring of their own. But can they pull off their plan before it’s off with their heads?

My Reason:

This was probably more comedy than romance, but it was funny as hell and ended with romance, so that counts for me. I can still remember how much I laughed while reading this, and I remember it having such a satisfying, romantic ending. It was predictable and entertaining, and just what you want and need from a rom com! I loved that the pair in the book grew to love each other through all the trials and tribulations they faced, and there were a great many, let me tell you! And I loved that the entire book had me rolling with laughter, while rooting for the pair to figure out their feelings for each other! It was perfect!

For those who are new to Calendar Girls, it is a monthly blog event, created by Melanie at MNBernard Books, and Flavia at Flavia the Bibliophile, that was inspired by the Neil Sedaka song Calendar Girl. Just like the song, each month has a specific theme, voted on by the participants, where we get to talk about a particular book we love or think fits the theme the best. The blog event was created to incite fun bookish discussions and to spread the blogger love by introducing us to new bloggers and/or books that we have not come across before.

  1. I need to give this one another try. I think I got about halfway through it and then just sort of abandoned it. It’s not the book’s fault. It was hilarious and ridiculous and …I don’t think I was in the right mindset and prepared for this book, so I should probably give it another try soon.

    1. Oh yes! I’d wait until you are in the mood for ridiculous and funny, lol. I know some people didn’t like all the liberties the authors took with the story, but it was one that I went in knowing that I wouldn’t find anything serious in it, and I had a good time.

      1. I really want to read My Plain Jane, and I’m super excited about My Calamity Jane, and I know that they aren’t technically sequels or anything, but I still feel like I need to read them in publication order and all that. I’m also excited to hear that these books did well enough for them to do a series of famous Marys too. That sounds interesting.

      2. I’m more familiar with the time period and the Jane of Plain Jane than Lady Jane, so, yeah. I think I’ll enjoy that one more just because of that. Same with Calamity Jane.

        So, for the Marys, it will be My Contrary Mary, My Atomic Mary, and My Typhoid Mary. So it will be Mary, Queen of Scots, Marie Curie, and Mary Mallon. The first one is expected in 2021.

      3. I honestly think that might have been why I enjoyed it less because Jane Eyre is one of my favorites. So I’ll be curious to see what you think. Still a good time to be had from both!

        Mary Queen of Scots!!! WOO! I hope for that when you said The Marys! Yassss!

      4. Maybe I’ll binge the Janes in time for the release of Calamity Jane in June. I’ll definitely review them after I read them.

        I enjoy Mary Queen of Scots as well, so I’m looking forward to the Marys too.
