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 Talented Mr Ripley by Patricia Highsmith
Why I have it: Have been meaning to read it ever since I saw the play, Switzerland (written by Joanna Murray-Smith), which is about Highsmith.
Summary: Suave, handsome Tom Ripley becomes obsessed with his wealthy friend Dickie Greenleaf.
I’m thinking: Yes because I haven’t read any Highsmith and this is probably a good place to start (please tell me if I’ve got this wrong).
Not Working by Lisa Owens
Why I have it: No idea.
Summary: Claire quits her office job, hoping to take some time to discover her real passion. But she doesn’t know how to find it.
I’m thinking: Maybe. It’s light and fluffy so will keep it in mind for summer.
The Sport of Kings by C. E. Morgan
Why I have it: Originally spotted on the Best of 2016 List, since spotted on lots of blogs.
Summary: A horsey-book about money, thoroughbreds and breeding (i.e. whether you come from the ‘right’ part of society or not).
I’m thinking: Maybe. Honestly, it didn’t grab me but I’ve read such good reviews so I’m wondering if it’s one of those books you need to get into.
