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. I came across this week’s selections while compiling the 2019 List of Lists.
Very Nice by Marcy Dermansky
Summary: A girl, her mother and the girl’s creative writing professor each do things they didn’t imagine themselves ever doing – the things are very nice but complicated.
I’m thinking: Yes – not too late to make this a beach read.
Wunderland by Jennifer Cody Epstein
Summary: NYC, 1989 – Ava Fisher receives news of the death of her estranged mother, Ilse, and it sparks questions about Ava’s childhood and her mother’s association with the Hitler Youth movement.
I’m thinking: Yes – the combination of Berlin and New York is hard to pass.
Supper Club by Lara Williams
Summary: A secret society of hungry young women meet after dark and feast to reclaim their appetites and their physical spaces.
I’m thinking: Yes.
