Surprisingly, I couldn’t find that many for J. I suppose that means I’ll just have to hurry up and publish a few books so some other blogger will have an option for the letter J, right?
Danielle L. Jensen: I recently found Danielle L. Jensen when I read Dark Shores, which released this year. I’m not sure she’s a favorite yet, but she definitely has potential to be and I look forward to the sequel!
Diana Wynne Jones: I’ve only read Howl’s Moving Castle by Diana Wynne Jones, but it’s not a surprise she’s a favorite author because of how much I love that book. I hope to read more of her books soon.
Jackaby by William Ritter: This is such a fun, supernatural fantasy book. I love the character and the monsters and the magic. It’s like Sherlock Holmes meets Doctor Who and Supernatural.
John Ronald’s Dragons by Caroline McAlister and Elizabeth Wheeler: I struggled to find books that begin with the letter J, but this picture book about J.R.R. Tolkien is the right balance of sweet and magical.
Jean Valjean from Les Misérables by Victor Hugo: Jean Valjean is half the reason I stuck with reading the entirely of Les Mis a few years back. He is one of the best literary characters ever, and his story—his redemption—is so powerful.
R.F. Jackaby from the Jackaby series by William Ritter: Like his book, Jackaby makes this list. He’s an odd detective. A ghost haunts his house and his last assistant turned into a duck and lives in his library. But he’s so interesting!
What authors, books, and characters do you love that begin with the letter J?
