I mostly read to be entertained. I like to read about topics of class, social issues, motherhood/domestic issues, family, ambition, love, family, tragedy, and desire.
I liked LESSONS IN CHEMISTRY, SEVEN DAYS IN JUNE, I HAVE SOME QUESTIONS FOR YOU, THE GUNCLE 1/2
#mswl generational stories of parenthood and family with non-binary and/or trans characters in the commercial or historical adult fiction genre (ie. heavy with plot!)
A mix of themes I like to see explored (not all at once!): nature, motherhood, identity, making difficult decisions, travel, myth of meritocracy, feminism, longevity, family, heartbreak, secret histories, individuality, modernism, trust, class, money, race, art, memory. #mswl
Plot & character driven stories of marriage, complicated family drama, or mother/daughter relationships i.e. THIS IS HOW IT ALWAYS IS, EVERYTHING I NEVER TOLD YOU, MATING FOR LIFE, MODERN LOVERS, THE NEST, SHE REGRETS NOTHING, THE PEOPLE WE HATE AT THE WEDDING etc #mswl
