Sample Saturday – three memoirs

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).

  1. 1. I hope that doesn’t mean I’m restricted to books about old men. That’d be boring. I never was 20 something (I was married and working) and I sometimes enjoy reading about what I missed.

  2. hahaha I’ve always loved OPI’s color names. My Dogsled is a Hybrid is fantastic! I’m currently wearing Chicago Champagne Toast. 🙂
