Need a re-entry book that sucks me in, is quick, and easy as i don’t have a lot of mental space.
i need a re-entry book. i haven’t read fiction for over a month :(. i need something that sucks me in, is quick, and easy as i don’t have a lot of mental space. any suggestions welcome. i like all genres ! and THANK YOU
Have you read American Housewife by Helen Ellis? It’s a short story collection (easy to pick up when you only have a few minutes). Made me laugh a lot!
no. short stories are a good idea ?
Yep, that’s a good one.
read that. liked very much ?
The Bees by Laline Paul is awesome. Also, hi Lisa!! 🙂
????? how are you ?
Sleeping Giants by Sylvain Neuvel. The story is told through a series of short interviews and is pretty compelling. It’s also the first in a series (next book comes out next spring) in case that’s a factor.
I’ll give you the sun by Jandy Nelson – technically a YA novel so easy read but So Good!
Just finished it and loved it!
What was the last thing you read that you loved?
last ? so hard. love George Saunders- some all time fav books : the history of love and elegance of a hedgehog 😉
I know you said fiction…but Naked by David Sedaris is my all time fave book. Short stories/essays about his family and growing up. I re read it every couple of years and still laugh out loud when I do (so I don’t read t in public).
No requirement for brain space but writing is beautiful and context is fun…if not cringeworthy at times! ?
read ! and love david sedaris. also love listening to him read his own books in his very unique voice ! ?
The Dog Stars-Peter Heller; Mothering-Graham Swift. Completely different books but not too long and soooo good.
Also highly recommend The Dog Stars!
The Girls by Emma Cline! Sucked me right in
Great book! It was a little weird getting used to the names tho because I’m really into the Manson murders.
Was also going to recommend.
How bout a mystery? I highly recommend Louise Penny’s Gamache series…you need to read them in order, so start with Still Life.
Agree. I’m currently reading the brand new Gamache.
I saw her interviewed by Charles Finch in Naperville, IL this week for the launch of a Great Reckoning. She was so funny, charming and gracious. It’s on my TBR pile…I really like the premise of the map being a clue in the mystery…
I wish Three Pines were a real place. Of course, the murder rate is a little high 😉
Yay! Yay! Yay! I ❤️ SBC, too.
@Guinevere it’s super funny and snarky. great re-entry suggestion ?
This is a good one. Read it in 2 days
I read one I really enjoyed earlier in the summer called “The Tricking of Freya”. Parts take place in the Canadian prairies and a large chunk in Iceland.
The Raven Boys
I really enjoyed Shadows on Snow by Starla Huchton, and I love Catherynne M Valente’s Fairyland books.
I really enjoyed the audiobook
Fates and the Furies by Lauren Groff, In the Unlikely Event by Judy Blume, Americanah by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie
read. really good 🙂
