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.
Entanglement by Katy Mahood
Why I have it: Spotted at A Life in Books.
Summary: A sliding doors story – three characters, two time periods.
I’m thinking: No. This has all the hallmarks of a book I’d love but the sample chapter didn’t pull me in at all.
Social Creature by Tara Burton
Why I have it: Cathy’s review.
Summary: Louise has nothing. Lavinia has everything. After a chance encounter, the two spiral into an intimate, intense, and possibly toxic friendship.
I’m thinking: Maybe – too tricked up?
She Has Her Mother’s Laugh by Carl Zimmer
Why I have it: Spotted at A Little Blog of Books.
Summary: Heredity from a fresh perspective – how genes link us to distant ancestors and to ethnic identities.
I’m thinking: No – I’ve read enough pop-genetics (for the record, the sample of this book is extremely generous, so you’ll get a good feel for it if you’re interested).
