(Small wave from the girl curled up in a hoodie and fuzzy socks right now, ’cause it’s fall in mid-Missouri, y’all!)
I’m currently avoiding some edit work I need to be doing on a western short story. I’ve been working on it the last couple weeks and hoping I can share it tomorrow, therefore, using this fun tag as a warm up.

Jane Lynch :: A favorite book featuring a character on the LGBTQIA+ spectrum.
Lord Akeldama wins every time, with all those adorable nicknames he lavishes upon Alexia. (Seriously though. How does Gail Carriger come up with them all?)
Lady Jane Gray :: A short book that packed a punch.
Night because it physically ripped my heart out of my chest and Sunbolt because it was such an unexpected surpise.
Jane Austen :: Favorite heroine in a classic.
Genteel Jane Porter. Yes. So much yes.
Jane Eyre :: Your favorite retelling.
Probably my favorite retelling (of sorts) that I’ve read this year. I love a good Hades and Persephone spinoff. If you haven’t read Star Touched Queen yet, please do.
Jane Fonda :: A character who upholds feminist ideals.
Veronica Speedwell is probably one of my favorites, if not my complete favorite, character ever written. She is powerful, intelligent, independent, open minded…I mean, I could gush about this series for hours.
Calamity Jane :: Your most anticipated release.
Jane Krakowski :: An underrated book you wish more people would read.
Colleen Gleason’s Stoker and Holmes series is so good I could squeal. Light hearted and fun and scrumptious.
The Lady Janies :: Two or more authors you wish would write a book together.
I gotta go with Kerri Maniscalco and V. E. Schwab here. Imagine Schwab’s web of fantasy worldbuilding plus Maniscalco’s infinitely interesting historical elements. Schwab’s grit and Maniscalco’s lush, slow burn = ultimate book crush.
Thank you again, Mariam, for tagging me! I’m going to reach out and tag four of my favorite bookish bloggers: Deanna Sammie Kathy and Aurora. If you’ve done it before, girls, feel free to leave a link in the comments if you’d like!
