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 Narrow Land by Christine Dwyer Hickey
Why I have it: Because of Susan’s review.
Summary: 1950, Cape Cod. Ten-year-old Michael meets a couple living nearby – artists Jo and Edward Hopper – and an unlikely friendship is forged.
I’m thinking: Yes (even if for the cover alone).
The Chronology of Water by Lidia Yuknavitch
Summary: Lifelong swimmer turned artist, Yuknavitch covers issues of gender, sexuality, grief, addiction, violence, and family in her memoir.
I’m thinking: Yes (is there a more devastating opening scene…?)
Lucky Charming by Kate Chastain
Why I have it: Because I have very low standards when it comes to television (Below Deck. Don’t judge me).
Summary: Kate Chastain labelled herself as ‘blissfully shallow and carefree’ when she began working on mega-yachts. And then came the reality TV show, Below Deck.
I’m thinking: No – I’ll stick to watching it.
