Twitterature (July 2013 Edition)

twitterature monthly reading linkup short reviews

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

Bel Canto

Bel Canto, Ann Patchett

This oddly structured pageturner from Ann Patchett fuses opera and a hostage crisis–and surprisingly, it works. #beachreading

The Distant Hours

The Distant Hours, Kate Morton

My first Kate Morton book. It won’t be my last. Perfect plot-driven novel for summer reading. #spellbinding

Crossing to Safety

Crossing to Safety, Wallace Stegner

“How do you make a book that anyone will read out of lives as quiet as these?” Just like this. My favorite book of 2013 to date. #gorgeous

Eleanor & Park

Eleanor and Park, Rainbow Rowell

I fell in mad gushy book love with this YA novel of young love, lost. My favorite read of 2013 for 2 weeks before #CrossingToSafety ousted it.  #JustReadIt

world's strongest

The World’s Strongest Librarian: A Memoir of Tourette’s, Faith, Strength, and the Power of Family, Josh Hanagarne

This debut memoir is just okay. Read it anyway if you want to know about Tourette’s, Mormonism, Salt Lake City, or urban library life. #niche

2k to 10k

2k to 10k: Writing Faster, Writing Better, and Writing More of What You Love, Rachel Aaron

Writers will get their money’s worth out of this 99¢ Kindle single. Geared towards fiction writers but applicable to everyone. #bargain #writestuff

The next Twitterature link-up will be on Thursday, August 15.
