I love that we here at the Heart-Shaped Glasses blog picked “weddings” as this month’s theme.
I happen to be a June bride! In fact, my anniversary is tomorrow…
As a reader and writer, I think “weddings” make the perfect backdrop for a romance. Who doesn’t like a wedding? Neurotic brides, beautiful dresses, love, romantic proposals, jealousy, friendship, crazy families, stress—there are so many interesting facets to them.
Now, put all those things in a fiction book and you can really have a lot of fun as a writer!
My next book I plan to write will incorporate a wedding. My heroine’s mother is getting remarried—to my heroine’s ex boyfriend’s father! Needless to say, the wedding will be a perfect opportunity to bring my hero and heroine back together again (whether they like it or not) 🙂
Do you like to stories that involve weddings too?
Well, here’s a rundown of some of my favorite wedding reads:
**Something Borrowed by Emily Giffin (one groom but the best friend has the hots for him–chick-lit)
**I Do, but I Don’t by Cara Lockwood (about the crazy mishaps of a wedding planner–chick-lit)
**Save the Date by Tamara Summers (YA book about a girl who has four sisters planning weddings–really fun!)
**Picture Perfect by Janice Thompson (about a wedding photographer and the competition she falls for)
**The Brides Quartet Series by Nora Roberts (I especially love this one! All four books were very romantic as the characters created weddings for other people)
Ah, so much drama to be had! I hope you get to check out some of these books this month for yourself. And if you’re a writer, I hope our theme inspires your own wedding story!
Are you a June bride? Do you have a favorite fictional wedding read?
