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.
You Belong Here by Laurie Steed
Why I have it: Melinda’s #6degrees chain for Tales of the City.
Summary: Jen and Steven meet at 16 and marry at 18. Next comes three children…and then where did their love go?
I’m thinking: Yes – love the retro details.
Freshwater by Akwaeke Emezi
Why I have it: Spotted on Hannah’s list of her best books for 2018 so far.
Summary: Ada, a young Nigerian woman has a fractured sense of self – some of her selves are more powerful and controlling than others.
I’m thinking: No – started with magic realism and it’s not my thing.
The Summer House by Philip Teir
Why I have it: Susan’s enticing review.
Summary: Erik, Julia and their children, head to the west coast of Finland where they will spend the summer. It won’t be an idyllic holiday – Erik is hiding news that will shock his family and a friend from Julia’s childhood causes havoc.
I’m thinking: Yes – light but with feeling.
