Sample Saturday – a stepchild, a couple, and an artist

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.

Feast by Emily O’Grady

Why I have it: spotted amongst new release hype.

Summary: Three women. Three secrets. One weekend (in Scotland).

I’m thinking: No.

The Happy Couple by Naoise Dolan

Why I have it: On my list of 2023 releases I most want to read.

Summary: Celine and Luke are the ‘happy couple’. Luke (a serial cheater) and Celine (mostly inter­ested in her piano) plan to marry. Archie (the best man) should be moving on from his love for Luke. Phoebe (the bridesmaid) just wants to get to the bottom of Luke’s unexplained disappearances. As the wedding approaches, each will find themselves looking for a path to their happily ever after.

I’m thinking: Yes.

Where I Slept by Libby Angel

Why I have it: more new release hype.

Summary: The unnamed narrator plunges us into 1990s Melbourne bohemia – a whirlwind of friends and strangers, decadence and despair, sex and drugs—through the places she slept: a boarding house with drug-addled landlord, share houses of aspiring artists and petty criminals, and roughing it on the streets.

I’m thinking: Yes.
