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
Homeward Bound: Why Women are Embracing the New Domesticity, Emily Matchar
Intriguing premise but felt kinda pointless and slanty. Unimpressive journalism. Nothing new here. #pass
Fascinating, multi-faceted approach from @gretchenrubin appeals to my #infp sensibilities. A little slow in places, but worth the time. #360review
The Patron Saint of Liars, Ann Patchett
I HAD to read this after hearing the backstory in The Getaway Car. Solid, readable first novel, though it needs more depth. #NotTooShabby
We Need New Names: A Novel, NoViolet Bulawayo
I felt like I *should* like this, but abandoned 70% through because of the unrelenting sadness. #devastating #debutnovel
An Everlasting Meal: Cooking with Economy and Grace, Tamar Adler
Spent half the time loving it and half the time wishing Adler would get off her high horse. Now I neeeed to read MFK Fisher. #FoodieLit
