Snotty Literati

The Sympathizer

I’m not a typical fan of Pulitzer winners… but I went ahead and read The Sympathizer and reviewed it for my side gig, Snotty Literati. Here’s what we thought.

Fate and Furies

Fates and Furies by Lauren Groff is one of the most talked about books from 2015. After Snotty Literati read it, we couldn’t stop talking about it.

Bel Canto by Ann Patchett

Bel CantoAnn Patchett’s Bel Canto is considered by many to be her best novel. But the ending gets a lot of people all fired up. Or pissed. Or both. What did Snotty Literati think? Well, read on and find out what my writing partner and I had to say and then chime in the comments with your own thoughts.

Snotty Literati Reviews: The Husband’s Secret by Liane Moriarty

The Hubby SecretI made Jennifer read this book after she bailed on a book she forced me to read. And guess what? We both loved it. I bet you will too.

Check out our review of The Husband’s Secret by Liane Moriarty. It’s not just a pretty cover. There’s substance beyond the title.

The Swan Gondola

Snap 2014-03-23 at 17.30.16My side book review gig, Snotty Literati, just reviewed The Swan Gondola by Timothy Schaffert. The cover is beautiful (I mean just look at it) and that was a big motivator for us selecting it as our April pick. Yes, we were being a bit shallow. But in the end, it’s what is on the inside that counts. Read our review to see if this beauty goes beyond the dust jacket.

Snotty Literati on Ann Patchett’s State of Wonder

State of WonderEarlier this year, my literary cohort (and published author) Jennifer Spiegel and I embarked on a new journey reading books and talking about our thoughts. A verbal, written book review, if you will. Each month I look forward to our books and our talks and realized that these, indeed, are book reviews and should be share with you, my loyal readership. So, over the course of the next few weeks, I will share our reviews with you here! You can also take a gander at them through the Snotty Literati tab on the website, but this delivers it right to your inbox. And there’s nothing I like better than easy peasy. Scratch that. I like books better, for sure. But easy peasy comes in at a close second.

So enjoy our first discussion… a controversial oneat that on Ann Patchett’s State of Wonder.
