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.
If you subscribe to the newsletter, you know I told you I’d be trying something a little different with Twitterature this month. Well, here it is–I recorded a video edition to accompany the bloggy version. (Click over to YouTube if you can’t see the video here.)
Let me know what you think in comments!
Here’s what I’ve been reading
Fahrenheit 451, Ray Bradbury
A sci-fi/fantasy about a fireman who hates his job set in the saddest of dystopian settings: a future with NO BOOKS. #cultclassic
Fangirl, Rainbow Rowell
[email protected]’s latest is my least favorite so far, despite strong characters & a fun peek into the world of fanfic #comingofage #newadult
This blue handbook has been called the Myers Briggs Bible & Personality CliffsNotes. Required reading for #MBTI geeks. #cultclassic
Franny and Zooey, J.D. Salinger
It’s overshadowed by Catcher, but this short work is Salinger’s finest thanks to its snappy dialogue & fitting ending. #cultclassic
A Million Little Ways: Uncover the Art You Were Made to Live, Emily P. Freeman
Slow to start, builds to awesome. I underlined it to death with a matching green pen. My fave so far from @emilypfreeman. #LiveYourArt
The House at Riverton, Kate Morton
Morton’s still finding her feet in this debut. It’s fine, but her later works are sooo much better. Read The Secret Keeper instead. #pass
Generation X: Tales for an Accelerated Culture, Douglas Coupland
This groundbreaking but uneven read has moments of brilliance amid some dragging stories. Coupland gets his generation. #AheadOfItsTime #cultclassic
What have you been reading lately? (And what do you think of the Twitterature video?)
The next Twitterature link-up will be on Friday, November 15.
