Sample Saturday – music, weapons, and perfume

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.

This week, all three I’ve had on my Kindle for a very long time (and so no idea why I chose them).

Kill Your Friends by John Niven

Summary: 1997, London: Stelfox (fuelled by greed and cocaine) is slashing and burning his way through the music industry, looking for the next big hit. But as the industry begins to change, Stelfox is forced to murderous new levels in an attempt to salvage his career.

I’m thinking: No.

Who We Were by Lucy Neave

Summary: Melbourne, 1938: Annabel’s dream is to be a scientist. Falling in love is not part of her plan but she meets Bill Whitton. They marry and emigrate to New York, where they find work on weapons projects, experimenting with lethal infectious diseases.

I’m thinking: Maybe (do I want to read about lethal infectious diseases?!).

The Perfume Collector by Kathleen Tessaro

Summary: Newlywed Grace Monroe doesn’t fit anyone’s expectations of a successful 1950s London socialite, least of all her own. She receives an unexpected inheritance and in discovering the identity of her benefactor, Grace uncovers the story of the women who inspired one of Paris’s greatest perfumers.

I’m thinking: No.
