Sample Saturday – three from authors familiar to me

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. These three need no explanation – I’ve loved books by all thee authors in the past.

Actress by Anne Enright

Summary: Norah retraces her mother’s celebrated career as an actress, and in doing so, delves into long-kept secrets.

I’m thinking: Yes – can I get it read before MWF?

You Be Mother by Meg Mason

Summary: All Abi ever wanted was a proper family, so when she falls pregnant by an Australian exchange student in London, she cannot wait to start life in Sydney – only Stu is not ready to be a father after all.

I’m thinking: Maybe – not quite as astute as the extraordinarily good Sorrow & Bliss (review to come).

The Need by Helen Phillips

Summary: When Molly, home alone with her two young children, hears footsteps in the living room, she tries to convince herself it’s the sleep deprivation. When she finds herself face-to-face with an intruder who knows far too much about her family, Molly slips down an existential rabbit hole.

I’m thinking: Yes – the first chapter hooked me.
