The Wedding Dress- A book that was either simple and elegant or breathtakingly over the top.
The Wedding Cake- A book that was so scrumptious you just ate it up.
I love dual-time historicals. The modern story is set on the rugged Scottish coast, and the historical one takes place in the lavish Russian court of Empress Catherine.
I had chosen Cloud Atlas because I love it, and also the idea of layers in a cake seemed especially suited to the stories layered in this book. But then, I realized I had a 100% women authors thing going except for just this one. So I deselected it in favor of the Kearsley, but I couldn't quite bring myself to remove it from the game altogether.
The Wedding Party- A book with amazing characters that you fell in love with.
Elizabeth Bear has created a tremendous cast of characters in this Western Steam-punk, sci-fi mashup. The residents of a brothel in a mining town have united themselves into a close-knit and loving family, each one contributing to the group with their own strengths, and forming a courageous front against their enemies.
I'm still fervently wishing for Connie Willis to decide to add on to this universe.
Yeah, I cried.
The Maid of Honor or The Best Man- A book with two amazing friends.
Three friends, each with a story of domestic abuse in her past, have banded together to form a fast friendship, offering each other support and courage and strength.
I can't think of anyone I like better than Jamie and Clare. They've faced so much, together and separately; their first year required a lot of adjustments by both of them, but twenty-five years later their relationship is as strong and as respectful and as loving as ever.
