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
Bittersweet: Thoughts on Change, Grace, and Learning the Hard Way, Shauna Niequist
Some people adored @sniequist’s second. I think it’s uneven. I recommend you go straight to Bread and Wine, where her voice is strong and clear.
Where’d You Go, Bernadette?, Maria Semple
Hated it. I didn’t abandon it because I thought it might be a good #summerreading pick for those who loved Gone Girl. No way. #pass
Help Thanks Wow: The Three Essential Prayers, Anne Lamott
My reading strategy: dog-ear the pages that speak to me, that I need to remember. This is my copy of Help, Thanks, Wow. #sogood #readit.
My Ideal Bookshelf, Thessaly La Force and Jane Mount
Dozens of culture-makers share the books that shaped them. Keep this beautiful book on your coffee table. #YouAreWhatYouRead #NerdyPick
Surprised By Oxford: A Memoir, Carolyn Weber
I liked it, but I was hoping to *love* it. Beautiful book, but lengthy dialogue didn’t ring true. 3.5 stars. #readitanyway #faithmemoir
