Welcome to the Twitterature link-up! For the lowdown, head over here, or try this Cliff Notes version: this is the place to share short, casual reviews of books you’ve been reading.
Here’s what I’ve been reading
Someday, Someday, Maybe, Lauren Graham
Finished Gilmore Girls, so I started Lorelai’s (I mean, Lauren Graham’s) book next. Fun and funny, and not bad at all for a debut novel. #beachreading
The Engagements: A Novel, J. Courtney Sullivan
The independent love stories of four couples are separated by generations, but share a surprising common bond. Woven throughout is the story of an iconic De Beer’s ad campaign. #ADiamondIsForever
Angle of Repose, Wallace Stegner
A sweeping novel, a commentary on marriage–why it works, why it fails. It’s a Pulitzer winner, but its dream sequence ending feels like a copout.
Attachments, Rainbow Rowell
Sweet, light-hearted, fun. Not nearly as angsty as Eleanor & Park, but not as good, either. This modern love story unfolds over email. #chicklit
Life After Life, Jill McCorkle
So beautiful–in parts–but some of the plot twists are just plain baffling. Not terrible, but not one I’d really recommend.
The next Twitterature link-up will be on Monday, September 16.
