I love weddings so much and would love a wedding romance. Any trope! (Except cheating, I hate cheating stories!!!)

A wedding planner romance would be fun. Or a wedding cake baker!

I just really love weddings!

I'm thinking about Biblical re-imaginings & can we re-claim Lilith? What about a feminist YA about the badass 1st partner of Adam? Remember how evil Morgan Le Fay was reclaimed as awesome Morgaine in The Mists of Avalon? Somebody do that for Lilith in a YA & SEND IT TO ME! #mswl

It's almost Purim! Who's going to send me a YA retelling of the Book of Esther (and my girl Vashti)? Perhaps a little f/f/ queer? Definitely feminist though and #ownvoices Jewish. #MSWL

Updated my #MSWL. For #fiction I would love the next Something in the Water/Catherine Steadman or The Whisper Man/Alex North. Romantic suspense, romcoms, & juicy and/or heartfelt fiction a la Elizabeth Strout or Liane Moriarty. I like to laugh and cry. bit.ly/2Tztzdu
