I’m in a book slump. It’s almost the middle of July and I haven’t finished a single book this month. I’m about to finish The Talented Mr. Ripley, which I’m reading for work, and it’s been a slog. Nothing on my bookshelf is hitting the spot and I desperately need something that’ll get me over this hump.
So, if anybody has recommendations for literary fiction or SFF that is 1) Short! Looking for something around 200 pages. 2) Set in winter/cold weather or on/near the water. It’s too hot! My imagination wants to go somewhere cooler. 3) Easy! By which I mainly mean compelling. Something I’ll want to plow through.
