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.
Bedtime Story by Chloe Hooper
Why I have it: Have always enjoyed Hopper’s writing and now a memoir…
Summary: When Chloe Hooper’s partner is diagnosed with a rare and aggressive illness, she has to find a way to tell their two young sons. By instinct, she turns to the bookshelf. Can the news be broken as a bedtime tale?
I’m thinking: Yes, yes, yes.
The Longest Way Home by Andrew McCarthy
Why I have it: Because I enjoyed Brat.
Summary: Unable to commit to his fiancée of nearly four years, McCarthy finds himself at a crossroads, plagued by doubts that have clung to him for a lifetime. He sets out to look for answers, and his travels take him from Mt. Kilimanjaro to rivers in the Amazon.
I’m thinking: Maybe.
Rattled by Ellis Gunn
Why I have it: Spotted amongst new releases.
