Jane, Unlimited by Kristen Cashore: 10 Awesome Umbrellas

Posted by

Welcome to Xpresso Reads’ tour stop for Jane, Unlimited! In Jane, Unlimited, the MC is obsessed with making umbrellas and so I was inspired to do a post dedicated to some of the super cute umbrellas out there.

10 Awesome Umbrellas You Will Want to Own


This cute one from Kate Spade. Those eyes are throwin all the shade at the rain for you.


I found this one for all your subtle rainbow needs. Also, can you imagine twirling that in the rain??? It seems like so much fun.


This one will let you embrace your inner Wednesday Addams and I think that’s fucking important.


I would highly suggest not looking at the prize tag on this one because there is a chance it’ll give you a heart attack. BUT. IT IS VERY AESTHETICALLY PLEASING and tbh, I am all about that bow life.


I think this post would be incomplete if I didn’t have at least on bookish umbrella on here and honestly, this one is so fucking cute.


Please give this one to me. I found it on pinterest and cannot find a seller??? I love how the design imitates rain.


This one is perfect for all the fans of Disney’s The Little Mermaid. Also that shade of blue/green used in the design makes my heart pitter-patter.


I couldn’t find a seller for this one which is slightly upsetting because that print is hella cute and I want it on everything. NOT JUST AN UMBRELLA.


This one is for all of my fellow cat-people. THIS IS ONE CUTE-ASS umbrella, okay? Random side note: a lot of the umbrellas on this list are black and this was not intentional but also, that makes me think (because umbrellas always make one think.)


For those of you that are made of money, perhaps this parasol will appeal to you? At only $690, it is what all of our dreams are made of. Also, if you’re made of money, throw some my way too.

If you could change your story, would you?

Jane has lived a mostly ordinary life, raised by her recently deceased aunt Magnolia, whom she counted on to turn life into an adventure. Without Aunt Magnolia, Jane is directionless. Then an old acquaintance, the glamorous and capricious Kiran Thrash, blows back into Jane’s life and invites her to a gala at the Thrashes’ extravagant island mansion called Tu Reviens. Jane remembers her aunt telling her: “If anyone ever invites you to Tu Reviens, promise me that you’ll go.”

What Jane doesn’t know is that at Tu Reviens her story will change; the house will offer her five choices that could ultimately determine the course of her untethered life. But every choice comes with a price. She might fall in love, she might lose her life, she might come face-to-face with herself. At Tu Reviens, anything is possible.

    Ooh, I love the second rainbow one! I love it because I don’t like having super flashy things, but I also like to have some fun, so… seems perfect! I love that bookish one as well — in fact, these are all fun! Thanks for sharing, I need to get ready for the rainy season (says the woman in SoCal who gets like ten days of rain a year…). 🙂

    I’m a huge umbrella fan!! Every house needs an awesome umbrella stand to show all the uniqueness.

    I just have plain umbrellas. I love the cat one where I’d get to see them from underneath.
