I asked you guys what I should write…then discarded all the options and chose to do a book tag instead.
Plus I miss My Lady Jane (I should reread it soon) and I’m excited for My Calamity Jane this year!
I swear I’ll write those other posts too…eventually.
Jane Lynch: A favorite book featuring a character on the LGBTQ+ spectrum
I NEED MORE OF THESE. Especially in fantasy. But a favorite of mine is Simon vs. The Homo Sapiens Agenda. The characters, the story, the movie – it’s one of the only contemporary books that I like.
Lady Jane Grey: A short book that packed a punch
The Outsiders. It’s short, but very emotional. One of my favorite classics ever!
Jane Austen: Favorite heroine in a classic book
I like Saphira from Eragon, but I don’t know if she technically counts. Jean Louise from To Kill a Mockingbird was another one that I enjoyed.
Jane Eyre: Your favorite retelling
The Traitor Prince by C.J. Redwine! She’s a recent favorite author of mine, and I love all of her books. But The Traitor Prince, her most recent, is my favorite of hers so far.
I could also say anything by Rick Riordan, but you all know how much I love his books.
Calamity Jane: Your most anticipated release
Either of these would count, but also King of Scars and Vow of Thieves.
Jane Fonda: A character who upholds feminist ideas
That’s hard to say, because I read a lot of fantasy, and those worlds don’t always have the same problems.
But I would say that Nomi definitely qualifies. It’s hard to explain unless you’ve read the book (I hope you have).
Jane Krakowski: An underrated book you wish more people would read
Anything by C.J. Redwine! I’m going to say it louder for the people in back: she’s so underrated!
All of her books take place in the same world, so her world building over these standalone novels is phenomenal. Besides that I really enjoy her characters and the twists and turns in her storyline.
The Lady Janies: Two or more authors you wish would write a book together
Mary E. Pearson and Tomi Adeyemi. I think that could write an epic fantasy series and that their styles would mesh well, even if they aren’t very similar.

…aaand no one else bc I have no idea who has read MLJ or MPL and who hasn’t.
