Sample Saturday – Austen, science and a saga

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.

The Jane Austen Remedy by Ruth Wilson

Why I have it: Because of this article.

Summary: 89-year-old author, Wilson, reclaims her life by re-reading each of Jane Austen’s novels.

I’m thinking: Yes.

Lessons in Chemistry by Bonnie Garmus

Why I have it: the publicists must be doing a good job because I’m seeing it everywhere.

Summary: 1960s: chemist Elizabeth Zott is not your average woman – single mother, and the reluctant star of the cooking show Supper at Six. But she isn’t teaching women to cook, she’s daring them to change the status quo.

I’m thinking: Maybe.

Before My Actual Heart Breaks by Tish Delaney

Why I have it: Spotted in one of Susan’s round-ups.

Summary: A young woman growing up in Northern Ireland during The Troubles, and the decades that follow her shotgun wedding. 

I’m thinking: Yes.
