Sample Saturday is when I wade through the eleventy billion samples I have downloaded on my Kindle. I’m slowly chipping away and deciding whether it’s buy or bye.
Loner by Teddy Wayne
Why I have it: Rory made me want it.
Summary: Socially awkward boy meets glamorous girl at Harvard – compromises everything to win her over.
I’m thinking: Without a doubt, yes (reminds me of Penelope).
Commonwealth by Ann Patchett
Why I have it: That cover… A sprawling relationship story…
Summary: A party, someone kisses someone they shouldn’t. The fallout continues over five decades.
I’m thinking: Yes. How can I not read a book that begins with –
“The christening party took a turn when Albert Cousins arrived with gin.”
That Mad Ache by Françoise Sagan
Why I have it: No idea.
Summary: A Parisian socialite is caught between her love for an older, wealthy businessman and a young, impulsive guy.
I’m thinking: Oui, oui – a lovely little Parisian (sixties) drawing-room drama.
