I do not re-read books, so I have a very small keeper shelf. In fact, there are only two books on that shelf – A THOUSAND SPLENDID SUNS by Khaled Hosseini and HIDDEN WIVES by Claire Avery. I loved both books and recommend them to anyone who asks me for a book to read.
A THOUSAND SPLENDID SUNS moved me to the core. It is such a powerful story of women in Afghanistan. The story is riveting, emotional, raw, and powerful. I could not put it down, even with tears streaming down my face. It is in my top 5 all-time favorite books.
HIDDEN WIVES is the first book that a part of my review for the book was quoted in! That is super exciting for a blogger! I really loved the book, too, so the quote was a bonus (it’s in the mass market paperback edition). It’s about girls living in a polygamist cult. Powerful stuff.
