Short Reads for Long Days (Books for Adults That Will Make You Feel Accomplished)

Recommendations from Leigh


"Though they be but little, they are fierce! These slim titles for adults pack powerful literary and emotional punches into fewer than 200(ish) pages. During the weeks I've spent sheltering in place with a toddler, I've found that delving into short, satisfying novels has helped keep my brain engaged and given me a much-needed sense of accomplishment. Last week, Jacqueline Woodson's resonant coming-of-age story Another Brooklyn swept me away to 1970s Bushwick; this week, I'm relishing Sue Rainsford's lyrical and chilling debut, Follow Me to Ground."
