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