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.
Everything I Know About Love by Dolly Alderton
Why I have it: A few people in my Goodreads feed enjoyed it.
Summary: The trials and triumphs of becoming a ‘grown up’ – bad dates, good friends, a Rod-Stewart themed house party, getting drunk, getting dumped and recognising that you are enough.
I’m thinking: No… not sure I’m Dolly’s target audience.
Small Animals by Kim Brooks
Why I have it: Totally sucked in by the cover.
Summary: Parenthood in the age of fear (written after the author decided to leave her two-year-old in the car while she ran into a shop, and the consequences of that decision).
I’m thinking: No (but would have read this 15 years ago).
I’m Not Really a Waitress by Suzi Weiss-Fischmann
Why I have it: I’m an OPI devotee…
Summary: The story of how Suzi Weiss-Fischmann transformed a small dental supply company into a global beauty brand, including fleeing Communist Hungary; the stories behind OPI’s fabulous shade names; and the power of colour.
I’m thinking: Yes (wearing My Dogsled is a Hybrid as I type).
