All She Wants to Do is Read

I need your help. I have nothing to read. (Not entirely true, I just am not interested in the things I have to read.) All I've been reading for the last several weeks are pregnancy books or only mildly interesting magazines. It's time for a change.

I'm thinking fiction, for sure. Possibly something Oprah's book club-ish, possibly chick lit. Nothing too heavy (figuratively and literally, so fewer than 400 pages, please), nothing that will make me too weepy i.e. no baby tragedies. Any recommendations?

You could try this list. Probably too heavy.

Have you read The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society? I read it this summer and loved it. Not too heavy, not too light.

If you would care for some light (really LIGHT) reading you might consider Carol Higgins Clark. Her books are nothing if not reminiscent of Carolyn Keene.

You should try A Confederacy of Dunces. It is hilarious and well-written--the author won a posthumous Pulitzer Prize.

I always recommend anything by Dave Eggers, but again, that might be too heavy.

Haruki Murakami has some great stuff. Kafka on the Shore, Norwegian Wood, and After Dark are all great. After Dark is pretty short, too.
