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.
Electricity by Ray Robinson
Why I have it: Spotted in Annabel’s #6Degrees chain.
Summary: Life’s not easy for Lily but she gets by. Needing no-one, asking for nothing, just her and her constant companion – epilepsy. But then her mother — who Lily’s not seen for years — dies, and everything changes in Lily’s world.
I’m thinking: Maybe – interesting style.
The Last One by Alexandra Oliva
Why I have it: Spotted on one of the lists.
Summary: A survival-in-the-woods-reality tv game turns ‘real’.
I’m thinking: No. Hunger Games rip-off?
I Capture the Castle by Dodie Smith
Summary: A coming-of-age novel set in a crumbling castle in the middle of nowhere.
I’m thinking: Yes – a classic I’ve somehow missed.
