Book Tag :: The Lady Janies


(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.

Mariam over @ Bookmania1276 tagged me in this “come-back-around” Lady Janies Tag, created by Rebecca and Ellyn back in June, to celebrate the release of My Plain Jane. The rules are pretty simple:

  1. Thank the person who nominated you
  2. Answer all the questions down below
  3. Pingback to the creators: Rebecca and Ellyn
  4. Nominate 5+ bloggers to do this tag

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.

Speaking of…

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!

    1. I had no idea what I was missing out on – but by the 3rd page I was HOOKED! Currently reading A Crown of Wishes as we speak.

      Have you done this tag, LaRonda? Jump on in, if you haven’t! ❤️


    1. Yessss to all of this! 1. Veronica is fierce. And the male MC (Stoker) my goodness, I ADORE him. You gotta read them. 2. Lord Akeldama is my FAVORITE of Carriger’s characters. Seriously. He’s fabulous. Really. Fabbbbbulous.
