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
The Time in Between: A Novel, Maria Duenas
Well-crafted, sweeping novel set during the Spanish Civil War. The dialogue stinks. Read it anyway. #historybuffs #couture #spies
Mr. Penumbra’s 24-Hour Bookstore: A Novel, Robin Sloane
“Harry Potter meets National Treasure,” according to Jessica. Exactly. Nerdy, fast, fun. #bookstorelove #SF #Google
I related way too much to Addie Zierman’s debut. Worthwhile for anyone who has complicated thoughts about growing up evangelical. #comingthisfall
The Bright Side of Disaster, Katherine Center
Maisie Dobbs, Jacqueline Winspear
Scores of you told me I’d love these British mysteries set between the wars. You were right. #mystery #series #9bookstogo
I love @sarahbessey’s blog, but was genuinely surprised at how much blog was in the book. I got over it. Fresh and thought-provoking. #comingthisfall
The Smitten Kitchen Cookbook, Deb Perelman
What’s this–a cookbook in #twitterature? This one earned it. Delightful prose, droolworthy photos, completely fabulous recipes. #thewholepackage #yum
The next Twitterature link-up will be on Tuesday, October 15.
