Books

Jayne has a limited amount of books written on her, but most of them try hard to introduce you to the woman who lived in a pink lollipop world. I know how much work goes into writing a book so I would never say a book is horrible. Instead, my rating system is divided into books you will reread and books worth a singular read that deal only with Jayne and books that are anthologies that include Jayne. All books are in English and in no particular order.
