I recently read Exposure to a Billionaire for the Literary Ladies Book Club-- the author graciously sent us a copy of the book to read. The book follows the life of a flight attendant on her travels around the world. While it was a great book for documenting travel to different locations I could only dream of visiting, I wasn't crazy about the writing style. It felt more like a diary with random bits of dialogue thrown in... there was a lot of telling what was happening, but not much showing if that makes sense? The book is based off of the author's real life experiences as a flight attendant, making me wonder if it would have been better almost as a memoir. Or even a set of short stories chronicling her different experiences and travels because it's clear she had a lot of great experiences.
I'm just about all caught up with my available library books, with the exception of In a Dark Dark Wood, which is what I'm currently reading. Next up I'm going to finally tackle a few of my books from Netgalley.
Vinegar Girl by Anne Tyler | a retelling of the taming of the shrew
Three-Martini Lunch by Suzanne Rindell | by the author of the other typist- the synopsis had me at 1950's New York
Surprise Me by Deena Goldstone | an unconventional love story- I think I was swayed by the cover
