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.
A Really Good Day by Ayelet Waldman
Why I have it: Christine mentioned it.
Summary: Waldman takes microdoses of LSD in an effort to treat a debilitating mood disorder; understand a misunderstood drug; and have a ‘really good day’.
I’m thinking: Yes – fascinating.
The Power by Naomi Alderman
Why I have it: Because it won the 2017 Baileys Prize.
Summary: Teenage girls have all the power and the world changes completely.
I’m thinking: Maybe. Not my preferred genre but interesting structure. And it’s a prize winner.
Invincible Summer by Alice Adams
Why I have it: Spotted on Susan’s June paperbacks round-up.
Summary: Four university friends, twenty years on.
I’m thinking: Yes – hard to go by a story about university friends.
