Hey, everyone! Since I’ve started reading The Goldfinch, which is a monster of a book, that also put me in a reading slump, I don’t have many bookish updates for you. Therefore, I’m going to do a tag, I haven’t done one in a long time and this one seems great!
I want to thank LaRonda @FlyingPaperbacks for tagging me, check her blog because she’s really amazing and you shouldn’t miss her posts!

Jane Lynch : Favourite Book Featuring A Character On The LGBTQIA+ Spectrum
the golden trio for me.
The Song of Achilles has gay rep, The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo has bi rep and lesbian rep and Let’s Talk about Love has asexual, biromantic rep. They are all very dear to me, I adore Madeline Miller, she’s one of my favorite authors and TSOA is absolutely heartbreaking (I totally recommend it). The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo was a huge surprise to me, but the story was so meaningful and I adored Evelyn Hugo as a character so much. Let’s Talk about Love was really cute and it was the first book I’ve ever read with asexual rep, so it’s always going to be important to me.
Lady Jane Grey: A Short Book That Packed A Punch
I’m not sure what packed a punch really means in this context. So, I’ll just go with short books that made me feel something.
And Then There Were None is so great if you’re in need for a quick, mysterious read that will keep you on edge, you’ll question everyone and wonder who did it and you probably won’t figure it out because Agatha Christie is that good. If you’re looking for some non-fiction, Adichie’s Dear Ijeawele is amazing, especially if you’re interested in a short book on feminism.
Jane Austen: Favorite Heroine In A Classic Book
Jane Eyre: Your Favorite Retelling
The coolest book out there, most probably. I love it, I love the banter, the characters, also it’s a darker, more twisted Little Mermaid retelling. If any of these are your thing, check the book. Here is my full review if you want a more in depth opinion.
Calamity Jane: Your Most Anticipated Release
I’m very excited about all these books. I’m going to read Outrun the Wind soon, though, since I have an e-ARC of it and it looks amazing, it’s a mythology retelling of Atalanta’s story and it’s f/f, you can say I’m very pumped about it. Vengeful is going to smash my feelings since Vicious ended me in all good ways, I can’t wait for this book. Also, I’ve heard nothing but great things about Girls of Paper and Fire, everybody has been raving about it, hope I can get my hands on it as soon as it comes out.
Jane Fonda: A Character Who Upholds Feminist Ideals
This is one of my most recent reads and it was the first that came up. Artemisia had some great feminist ideals and it was an excellent book. I’m so grateful to this book for introducing me to Artemisia’s story, which was heartbreaking, but also so powerful.
Jane Krakowski: An Underrated Book You Wish More People Would Read
If you’re in the mood for cute contemporary with a lot of emphasis on family, friendships and self discovery, I’d recommend this one to you. It’s amazing, I adored it so much.
You can find my full review here.
The Lady Janies: Two Or More Authors You Wish Would Write A Book Together
Okay, but actually Donna Tartt read and loved The Song of Achilles and The Secret History had some serious mythology vibes, I don’t see why not??? MAKE THIS HAPPEN. I had to include Marie Rutkoski because she’s highly talented and I think a book written by those three would be something else entirely, a total game changer.
I tag :
- Kat @Life and Other Disasters
- Marie @Drizzle and Hurricane Books
- Monica @Torn Pages and Roses
- Fanna @Fannatality
- and anyone else who wants to do it.
