A Year of Sample Saturdays – 2021 Edition

I’ve read 99 Kindle samples this year – I reckon that downloading sample chapters is more prudent than impulse buying books that don’t quite pan out after the first few chapters.

Of the 99 I’ve read, I’ve said ‘yes’ to 52. Of those that I’ve said yes to, seven I now own and a further two I’ve read.

Wow, No Thank You by Samantha Irby
Cobble Hill by Cecily von Ziegesar
Monogamy by Sue Miller
The Lost Family by Libby Copeland
The Less People Know About Us by Axton Betz-Hamilton
The Tall Man by Chloe Hooper
The Margot Affair by Sanaë Lemoine
The Grammarians by Cathleen Schine
Forty Autumns by Nina Willner
Stranger Care by Sarah Sentilles
Car Crash by Lech Blaine
The Psychic Tests by Gary Nunn
The File: A Personal History by Timothy Garton Ash
Dinner Party: A Tragedy by Sarah Gilmartin
Plastic Emotions
by Shiromi Pinto

I did the same review in 2020, 2019, 2018, 2017 and 2016. I still haven’t read all of the books on those lists but I’m chipping away…
