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.
The Night Watch by Sarah Waters
Why I have it: Because I just finished The Paying Guests.
Summary: Four Londoners, 1940s, air raids, blacked out streets, illicit liaisons.
I’m thinking: No, didn’t grab me.
Tin Man by Sarah Winman
Why I have it: Loved When God Was a Rabbit.
Summary: This is almost a love story. But then it’s not.
I’m thinking: Yes, yes, yes.
State of Wonder by Ann Patchett
Why I have it: Commonwealth was marvellous.
Summary: Dr Marina Singh hits the Amazon in order to find her colleague, Dr Swenson, who disappeared while working on a valuable new drug.
I’m thinking: Yes (…or should Bel Canto be next?!).
