JANE LYNCH: FAVORITE BOOK FEATURING A CHARACTER ON THE LGBTQIA+ SPECTRUM
The Gentlemen’s Guide to Vice & Virtue by Mackenzi Lee (review). Monty is a bisexual and I believe Percy is gay? I would fact check me on that, and if I am wrong please feel free to correct me in the comments! I’ve read so many books lately with characters on the LGBTQIA+ spectrum that this was a hard choice but I absolutely loved this one so much.

LADY JANE GREY: A SHORT BOOK THAT PACKED A PUNCH
A Monster Calls by Patrick Ness is one of the most heart-wrenching books I’ve read. I read this book in one sitting at the foot of my mum’s bed because she hadn’t been well that day and I was a mess of tears.

JANE AUSTEN: FAVORITE HEROINE IN A CLASSIC BOOK
I’m here to say I’ve never read a classic book, oops. I literally have no answer for this one and I’m mildly embarrassed but at the same time, I give zero shits about classics.

JANE EYRE: YOUR FAVORITE RETELLING
The answer for this one is easy as all hell. Cinder by Marissa Meyer. I wanted to choose a different answer but I am honestly struggling to think of any other retellings I may have read, it’s a mess.

CALAMITY JANE: YOUR MOST ANTICIPATED RELEASE
I say this so dang often but Queen of Air and Darkness by Cassandra Clare is my most anticipated released. Lord of Shadows broke me and I need the finale. I also absolutely love Cassandra Clare’s books and I will basically read anything she publishes at this stage.

JANE FONDA: A CHARACTER WHO UPHOLDS FEMINIST IDEALS
Not a character, but the book The Nowhere Girls by Amy Reed (review). This is a book where girls fight back and learn about feminism – finding that it isn’t a bad word. It does have a sexual assault themes throughout but it is truly one of the best books I have read!

JANE KRAKOWSKI: AN UNDERRATED BOOK YOU WISH MORE PEOPLE WOULD READ
I’ve shouted about this one a few times now but, How To Make A Wish by Ashley Herring Blake. I highly recommend all of Ashley Herring Blake’s books even if you don’t like middle grade or young adult. These books truly stay with you and I will make everyone I can read them.

THE LADY JANIES: TWO OR MORE AUTHORS YOU WISH WOULD WRITE A BOOK TOGETHER
To be honest, there are no authors I want to collab. I don’t think about it much. I’m just going to go with the ones that have come to mind now but just take them with a grain of salt.
Cassandra Clare and Cale Dietrich → I absolutely love Cassandra Clare (as mentioned earlier) and I also really love The Love Interest by Cale Dietrich (despite the fact a lot of people didn’t). I think both their styles would mesh well together + Cale would provide an #ownvoices view on gay characters.
Robin Roe and Louise Gornall → both Robin and Louise wrote books that left me in tears (A List of Cages and Under Rose Tainted Skies). Both their books are severely underrated but I feel these two coming together would be a power couple. I would also have to send them a bathtub full of my tears because I know they’d break me.
Marissa Meyer and Rick Riordan → Marissa Meyer is the retelling queen and Rick Riordan is the master of mythology. Is there much else I can say? I think this pair would kill the game together.
Cora Cormack and Talia Hibbert → two of the nicest people on Twitter and two of my favourite romance authors. Cora always has a depth to her books but occasionally I feel there is a spark missing, Talia Hibbert always has that spark and I feel the pair would make a fearsome duo.
Morgan Matson and Adam Silvera and Angie Thomas → look, do I really need to extend on this one? These three are incredible writers who all have their talents in the field. I think combining all three of these talents would take the young adult community by storm.
