Jane Lynch: Favorite book featuring a character on the LGBTQIA+ spectrum

this one is so hard because all of my favorite books are LBGTQIA+


if I had to pick one

I think my blog should actually be called Malanie Loves *~Neil Josten~*

Lady Jane Grey: A short book that packed a punch

This was required reading for school and I fell so much in love??? It’s about a man trying to come to terms with his brother’s drug addiction in Harlem.

And it feels so honest and real and lonely.

Jane Austen: Favorite heroine in a classic book



I fell in love with her around the time she befriended Helen Burns and things just escalated from there. AND HER PASSIONATE ROMANCE WITH ROCHESTER?????

Jane is a person who can perfectly balance being independent AND soulfully devoted to another human.

How can anyone not love her? She’s clearly perfect. And adorable.

Jane Fonda: A character who upholds feminist ideals

2 stars

I went into “Running With Lions” expecting Foxhole Court vibes but this CERTAINLY wasn’t that and I was disappointed and confused. But it was still a cute story! Messy but very cute.

And the coach has daughter named Grey who helps train the team and SHE’S SPECTACULAR.

She’s in love with Mason and even though it’s unrequited she doesn’t care and she refuses to be patronized because of her smol *crush*

She’s just so unashamed of how she feels and who she. She’s one of my new inspirations ❀

Jane Krakowski: An underrated book you wish more people would read


This book was surprisingly addictive. And I wasn’t sure if I’d like this because it’s not at all popular on Goodreads. Or anywhere. But I really loved it!!!!!

The ending is really abrupt and the plot holes are like black craters of death.


The love story very intense and adorable?????? It’s insta-friendship turned into a YA gay romance that involves CUDDLING. ~SO MANY FEELINGS~

The Lady Janies: Two or more authors you wish would write a book together

Rainbow Rowell and Mackenzi Lee / Imagine how hilarious and pure??????

CS Pacat and Nora Sakavic / This would be intense and angsty and so badass. And ROMANTIC! Foxhole Court meets Captive Prince. I think the universe would spontaneously melt.

Adam Silvera and Maggie Stiefvater / I know this is strange, BUT ADAM IS DOING THE WRITING WITH BECKY. HE SHOULD DO THE WRITING WITH MAGGIE. Gansey in the Bronx!!!!!!

      hahahhhh tysmmmmm 😭

      Sonny’s blues was so well written, I wish it were a longer story bc i was so invested, I need to see him domestic and healing 5 years in the future!!! I need to solve his problems!!!!!!!

      Gansey in the Bronx, possibly fulfilling my unpopular dreams of an Adam Gamsey ship, with angst, is 20000% ideal ❀️
