Quick Thoughts on Property & Wife 22



Very quick thoughts on two very different books:



A disturbing subject and a beautiful story all wrapped up in one short novel. The subject matter is far from easy and that's what I loved about it. There are things that have to be faced. This part of our history is one of them. 



On the opposite end of the spectrum is this delightful read. Funny, warm, and easy to relate to. I couldn't put this one down and it made me laugh. A LOT.

These are both exceptional books that I wholeheartedly recommend. Have you read either of these books? What did you think?

  1. I LOVED Wife 22. It was so funny and heartwarming.

    I need to look up the other one as I haven't heard of it, but I'm intrigued.

  4. I have not one but two copies of Property sitting on my TBR...and they were both passed on to me rather than me seeking them out myself! Something about it just doesn't excite me but I'm sure I'll read it sooner or later.

  5. I just checked out the synopsis of Property on IndieBound's website, and I can see why it would be such a tough book to review. It seems to be something that is good to read because it's something we need to talk about and make sure it isn't forgotten, but would be a hard book to actually read.
